Charlie Merton Bio
As a musician and a student of Energy Medicine, Healing and Yoga, I have developed an understanding of how all of these practices (Healing, Yoga and Music) are interwoven and compliment each other. Sound (Nada) is all around us, whether in the form of music (which is really just organised sound), in nature, in our speech, in the chaos of the city. Sound is the original creative force, everything is made up from molecules that are vibrating at different speeds, therefore to quote from Sanskrit texts ‘Nada Brahman’ translates to ‘the world is sound’ – everything is in a state of vibration. All of this knowledge is thousands of years old and has been written about in Vedic Scriptures, it is nothing new, however people are becoming more interested in unveiling this ancient knowledge and I feel honoured and privileged to be on this journey whereby I can help to guide others in the same way.
It is my mission to equip and empower people with the tools, knowledge, ability and disposition to deal with a range of burdens (e.g. stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, and anger) that we encounter more and more within today’s society.
My yoga journey and indeed my spiritual journey is one of lifelong learning, never-ending lessons, embracing the challenges and learning to sing in the rain. I have a deeply-rooted motivation to help others and to help them develop the tools they need to achieve inner balance and unity of mind, body and spirit, thus ensuring their well-being in all aspects of life, even when the challenges of the world weigh them down heavily (as they do on us all). I have nurtured this drive by working in the Special Needs Sector of an Education recruitment business for 7 years, however I have always maintained a firm foundation of spiritual work in my private life and dedicated time to healing others through my yoga and healing practices. I am now teaching yoga everyday alongside studying for a Masters degree in Music Therapy with the intention of combining all these aspects of my work.
