Chad received a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology with minors in Sociology
and Philosophy from Illinois State. Following graduation he left on his own to backpack
around Europe and Southeast Asia. At each destination he consciously examined and
recorded the discrepancies of living conditions between the wealthiest and most
impoverished areas. While abroad he volunteered and helped in Kho Phi Phi, Thailand
with tsunami cleanup and rebuilding efforts; and also taught English in Japan.
Upon his return to the States in 2006 Chad founded a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit organization.
In 2009 in expansion and partnership with a local church planter Aware was born.
Aware uses recycling, education, collaboration, job creation and economic development to build healthy
communities. While he labored tediously to build his charity, he worked several jobs,
Produced and hosted a public access television show,
and completed his Masters of Science in Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy. Chad
later left law school early to focus his energy on his passion of helping people through
his local charity. The business grew to nearly a $800,000 a year cash flow (that
money goes directly back into our local economy); helped over 15 people off of
the streets, into jobs and through substance and chemical addiction; began a Youth
Empowerment and community garden program; and diverted over 2,000,000 lbs. of recyclable material.
Chad has studied and practiced transcendental meditation and Tai Chi for nearly
10 years. In 2009 he was introduced to Energy Body Work, Tantra, Qi Gong and other energy
healing modalities, and is currently earning his PhD in Psychology with an emphasis on
Teaching. Through his practice with Energy body work he has been influenced and inspired strongly by the work of Shantam Nityama and Shophar. He has also been heavily influenced by the
teachings of Osho, Mantak Chia, Sasha Cobra, and Barbara Brennan.
It is vital for the Energy Body Work participant to realize that any Energy healing
experienced has nothing to do with Chad. Through this work he is serving as a vessel of God for you
to ultimately balance and Love your Self, and to Realize every Moment This IS Always with you.
