Charlie is a very knowledgeable meditation teacher. Vedic meditation has given me the ability to center myself and relax in a particular moment as well as made me adaptable and flexible outside of meditation in this crazy entertainment industry.

Charlie helps me to be in harmony with my relationships with people, my community, my children and my significant other. I feel open artistically and creatively so that I am able to create music as purely as it flows from me. This meditation is the ultimate gift.

- Doyle Bramhall II, MUSICIAN

Over the past 20 years I have struggled with implementing meditation into my life. Until I met Charlie two years ago. He made it so much fun to learn the practice and he also was able to teach me how to stick with it.

- Manon von Gerkan, MODEL & DESIGNER

I met Charlie through mutual friends and was so impressed by his grace and easeful presence, I thought there must be more to it! Of course he turned out to be someone who is replenished daily by a dedicated meditation practice -- and he wears it well in how he interacts with others. Charlie is a fantastic teacher -- he has very easy going teaching style but it always felt intellectually satisfying; learning to meditate with Charlie was a such gift!
