Charles and I met in Finland at the Four Winds gathering of which he is the visioning Grandfather. I was deeply inspired by his presence and his being, his stories of being adopted into native American Hopi families, being repeatedly struck by lightning, and most of all his overall joy and enthusiasm that bubbles through him at 86 years young. Charles is an inspiration to me and has so much wisdom to share. Last week I had a strong inspiration to want to hear more of his story so I asked him if he would have a video chat with me. I have such a hunger to hear more from the wise elders in my life and I'm so thankful that he agreed. We recorded it so that we could share it with you.
Some of the topics we explored include Charles's journey of being initiated by life and the thunder beings, his many travels, adventures and encounters on the path, dedication to following guidance, gratitude as the greatest prayer and medicine, our human role as co-creators, and much more...
Thank you so much Charles for sharing your stories, who you are, and some of the beautiful medicine you have gathered. It's a joy to receive it in this co-creation!
