Reverend Charmaine was ordained by the New Seminary, a school of interfaith theology in New York City. She is a Reiki Master, certified hypnotherapist, trained aromatherapist, and tantric energy specialist.
Reverend Charmaine is a member of (American Association of Sex Educators Counselors and Therapists). She is also a member of ASEP (Association of Sexual Energy Professionals).
She assists organizations such as Alternatives to Domestic Violence; the New York City school system; and the New School for Social Research, where she taught stress relief and chakra balancing, and performed aura readings for students.
Reverend Charmaine has been interviewed on radio station WWRL, Channel 9 News, and has also been profiled for her personal growth in the holistic magazine To Your Health.
She was recently featured on Sirius Radio's Playboy Channel, where she was interviewed by host Deanna Brooks regarding her book, The Sensuous Mystic: Uniting Sex and Spirit. She later fielded questions from listeners - one of whom enthusiastically called it "an awesome show"!
She has led workshops in the tri-state area since 1992, and is continually increasing her work as a facilitator of personal empowerment through workshops and one-on-one sessions: the individual sessions include sexual counseling, spiritual counseling, tantric energy work, aura readings and cleansings, chakra balancings, and spiritual tarot readings; her workshops include chakra intensives, Goddess rituals, Second Sunday Services and various others that continue to support empowerment for all.
Her unique methods center on our natural ability to evolve by healing ourselves and others. With her guidance and assistance, one is lead through a series of letting-go processes. These experiences enable one to work through and leave behind a lifetime of fears and paralyzing self-doubt, to attain the position of strength and power that is rightfully their own.
In July, 2000, in a primitive and intense ritual, she was initiated into Goddesshood. From this ceremony, she realized that she'd been called to bring forth the unification of Sex and Spirit.
