Charles Chen: You Can be in Your Greatest Challenge, and Still Cultivate Your Peace.

  1. Charles Chen: You Can be in Your Greatest Challenge, and Still Cultivate Your Peace. Patrick Huey 40:22

Charles Chen is a man on mission to bring wellness, healing, and clarity to the world. His platforms have been broad and far reaching – Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America. His prayer is simple: “Use me. Use me wisely.” His life of service and transformation began with what he calls his surrender moment. When he was 15 years old and began to free himself from the mental and emotional prison of his childhood growing up as an immigrant in America. To face the shame of his emerging sexuality, and the unacknowledged and unreceived pain of the sexual trauma he experienced as a young boy, that lead him to becoming mute. To stopconsuming mounds of junk food and French fries that led him to suffer from obesity. 

 The surrender moment. When he hit rock bottom, and that pain became the catalyst that sparked change within him. When he moved from a life of numbness and standing stuck at closed doors – unaware of the opportunities to live that he simply could not see – to his life today where he can proclaim, “Don’t be scared. Live fully and be in the present.” Today, Charles boldly professes that we are all divine vessels, here to be used in service to other people by showing up as the highest versions of ourselves. Looking back, he does not regret his journey, because he says that for the divine to come through us and to use us, we must first be broken. Broken to be transformed.
