c h a r l o t t e n g u y e n  meditation 〰 tea ceremony 〰 community in service to love + liberation

✨ SUMMER SOLSTICE ✨ As revolutionaries who want freedom and big changes, may we incline our minds to honor the earth 🌿🌸 🕊 May we find delight in small aliveness. May we learn, care, act, reflect, and grow. May we constantly be thankful for soil, sun, air, water, fire, labor, courage, love, and wisdom - all that sustains our lives. May we take good risks to create the conditions for more of us to thrive. Thankful to @rootedinspirit for capturing this moment 🔥

it’s hard to justify being mesmerized by details when the world around us is sinking deeper and deeper into trouble. but i do know: no matter how hard we track the news, no matter how tenaciously we fight, so much of life feels out of our hands. how do we accept this and keep fighting all the same? grateful to be safe and alive, witnessing these smiles, dreaming and building toward worlds where separation, dehumanization and lovelessness are things of the past 🌍💕thank you to the sisters of color at @spiritweavers for making these dreams just a little more tangible 🙏🌸🌲💕🌕🌀.

if you believe #familiesbelongtogether, follow the link in my bio and help us reunite a parent with their beloved 💔

as children are separated from their beloveds at the border, we repent and remember that this is who we have been as colonizers in this land.
-
we repent on how we did this on the auction block and the plantation; we repent of how we did this at boarding schools like carlisle indian school. i say “we” because though we ourselves aren’t separating families, we are complicit as citizens who do not work to dismantle this system.
-
please take a moment to let yourself be impacted by this. look at them, etch their images in your minds, paint the pictures, tell the stories, speak up, say their names again and again. til the tears stream down your face from all the parts of you that have become desensitized to our human connection. look at those parts that you want to ignore again and again until you feel the truth of the dehumanization that we allow to be ok and it pains you.
-
tearing families apart has a history; it’s OUR history. this is who we have been. this is not who we need to be any longer. with all the weight of five hundred years of inhumane cruelty: resist.

I could return to this place hundreds of times and talk to each rock & flower. Deep, powerful magic happened here! ✨ @spiritweavers 🌲🌸🌞

✨SPIRIT WEAVERS✨ It’s my first day back from @spiritweavers, a five-day celebration of cultures past, and a remembering + practicing of the ancestral ways. I am so grateful to the river, to the woods + to the sisterhood.

On the last day, I went outside to catch the last rays of sun + felt a deep integration happening within me 🌞 The sacred was so present in everything, all I could feel was thankfulness for my beautiful life. I felt that I wasn't merely sleeping last night; I was recalibrating + receiving. Love + trust wove themselves into my cells. I woke up more whole.
-
The Earth is mysterious + delicious, and I’m here to walk this path of beauty in my own delectable way. Humble, sovereign, forever learning even as I share + teach. May it be so 🌲💕⛰

I have so much to learn but my god, after being so broken, my heritage has put me back together 💓. True wellness was practiced by our ancestors and my heritage has guided my journey back to health at every turn 💮.

One year ago, inspired by the traditions and tea sages of old, I began a practice of daily tea meditation and followed a path of devotion to the way of tea (Cha Dao) 🍃🍵. Hundreds of bowls later, I held my first public tea sit last week to a predominantly Asian-American gathering 🙏🍃. It was beautiful to look up and see my own beauty reflected back to me ✨ Through the connection of tea, we tuned in with nature, community, self, and sat the way our ancestors did. The way monks and sages, kings and queens once did. Sharing tea in ceremony 🍵 and reclaiming together this art of living well.

So grateful to @nativesol for providing a space where we all belong, to @divineservant_ for your supportive heart and energy, and to @tanyaedmilao for capturing this post-ceremony joy 🌸✨

happy. sad. happy. sad. scared. inspired. sometimes free. 🌊✨

Chances are, if you follow me, you too have felt a big SHIFT. There are big movements rippling through humanity at this time. Can you feel it? 🌍 Deep parts of our culture are being reviewed, to make space for a better world. We are remembering who we are and what we came here to do.

I’ve teamed up with my dear friend @sparrowlorine and 20+ New Earth leaders who are changing culture and the lives of many through their heart-centered work. We’ll dive deep into topics of Emotional Healing, Radical Expression, Activism, the Power of Pleasure, Earth Wisdom, and Intentional Community.

Let us boldly answer the call of our hearts. Let us build a new way together. This online series is FREE and live now! Follow the link in my bio to register 🙏💓 With fire and hope, Charlotte

Whenever I feel off, energetically or physically, I look for the nearest natural earth surface and sit...I close my eyes, tune into the vibrations in my body, then allow the warmth of the sunlight around me IN. My breath deepens...everything slows down, shifts, and comes into balance. My ailments clear completely or an understanding of what I need to heal arises.

ABOUT CHARLOTTE
Charlotte Nguyễn is a meditation teacher, spiritual advisor, activist and a safe space.  Coming from a Southeast Asian background, spirituality and mysticism have always been part of her experience, but like many immigrant families, survival was the guiding force that shaped her early years.  Over the past decade, she began a quest to find herself, beyond the fear.  Meditation, sacred movement, tea medicine and community each played a role – weaving together her love of spiritual practice, social action, and creative expression.
.
Charlotte has a daily practice of tea meditation, a space where she connects with her body and soul in mindfulness.  She is blessed to serve and share this practice, which has so greatly changed her life.  She loves bodies of water, science fiction, Frank Ocean and orange juice - even though they're all impermanent things.

we say in buddhism that all living beings, at one time or another, have been our mother. but today, my heart’s embrace belongs to the one who chose me 💐✨ mama, may I always protect you, respect you, be the fire that warms you, the raft that saves you, the medicine that heals you. may I be the choir that always sings your praises! 🌸 may I always see my life as something for your service. may the woman I am becoming indeed be proof that your sacrifice was worth it. may I remember to love and care for all beings as they were my mother - as they were you 💗💐✨

YOU + ME

Loves! My heart is bursting to share that applications for the next wave of Awakening Change, my 6-month transformational journey through meditation are opening in June! YES! It all feels in so much delicious alignment!
::::::
In the meantime, I want to offer something I’ve never offered before...
::::::
🌿 SINGLE HEALING SESSIONS 🌿
::::::
Maybe you’ve been longing for a connection, a place, a compassionate guide on your path. Maybe you’re facing a huge challenge or a fork in the road. Maybe you’ve been wanting to deepen into your own inner guidance and courage, and need support finding it. Maybe you need to let something go...
::::::
Gift yourself a healing session on your journey into yourself 🌻 I’m offering 8 sessions at 60 minutes for a sacred exchange of $106!
::::::
In the past, the only way to work with me 1-1 was to commit to my 6-month journey, so I’m excited to be working with some sweet souls who’ve wanted to do that, but couldn’t afford it or it wasn’t the right timing. I don’t know if I’ll do this again, so if the curiosity is alive inside you NOW, don’t wait. Honor that intuition 💗
::::::
If you’re ready to connect to greater trust in your inner knowing, I’m here for you. If you’re ready to step into the next expression of you that is calling you forward, I’m here for you. If you’re feeling stuck and need some support moving through it, I’m here for you. If you’re ready to remember parts of yourself that have been seeking your attention, I’m here for you. Let’s sit together, and see what might happen when you trust yourself as your greatest teacher.
