Why I share My Story?
Hi. I’m Charles: a father, loving partner, dharma student and yogi. I also love cooking for my family, roasting coffee and running. But I wasn’t always happy and healthy. I used to have other titles like abused child, addict and severely depressed.
In fact, by the time I was seventeen I had been hospitalized three times, dropped out of high school and left my childhood home.
Everything changed in my early twenties when I discovered the Eastern practices of Buddhism and Yoga. These two practices steered me towards the path of recovery and helped me to cultivate inner happiness.
Not only did I get clean from illegal drugs but I was able to get off all medications for anxiety and depression. I would go on to get my GED and eventually graduate from college with a Master’s Degree. Over time, I found true love and created a beautiful family.
I write about the journey found in mindfulness. It is my wish to share my story and the techniques that helped me to get through tough times, so that others may cultivate lasting inner peace and overcome the obstacles that obstruct their path!
