“As you’re growing, as you’re becoming ever more yourself, you become conscious that the world of phenomena doesn’t have your happiness or your peace.”

He creates and leads transformational workshops, courses and lesson series that guide people to self-mastery. Charles has counseled hundreds of couples in pre and post marital counseling, supporting them in creating a vision for their relationship utilizing an integral approach. Charles has been described by his colleagues as a “good shepherd – who is fair, even-tempered and grounded in spiritual principles.” Another Unity minister had this to say about Charles “he is one of the rare few colleagues in the New Thought movement who is trained to produce Biblical exegetical sermons through a metaphysical lens; as a speaker he is humorous, entertaining, uplifting and has become a UFBL favorite.”

Charles obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and History from Florida A&M University and coach training from Newfield and Coachville. He is a certified Integrative Coach Professional from the Ford Institute, where he also serves as a mentor for aspiring coaches and also a certified coach with ThinkTQ. He is author of The H.I.P.

In 2007, Charles began practicing the Integral Life Practice approach. A technique he said “supports my leadership style, pastoral abilities and ability to connect with others wholeheartedly. The integral approach has deepened my passion in living in a world where people are experiencing H.I.P. relationships.” A reoccurring message found throughout Charles’ work is: You Are Enough. A message he is very passionate about sharing with the world.
