Charisse Lyons, Tonglen Practitioner and Consultant, is a retired speech/language therapist. After a rewarding thirty-year career in the school system, she became aware that her life’s purpose was waiting for her. Retirement has allowed her the ability to pursue this purpose and she has never looked back.  Charisse experiences an awe of the human spirit. She has witnessed limitless strength and resolve in facing the deepest pain and how that leads to the core of one’s being, the truth of who we are. Charisse has been on a spiritual path since childhood. Throughout her life she has had an awareness of the power and healing this has brought to her, and others, especially in times of sorrow and suffering. Charisse’s work can best be described as a soul worker. She works in transpersonal realms with others, in building an awareness of unresolved suffering within them. In combination with her client, she enters into the suffering and gives it the light needed to work towards healing. This is done in a setting that is comforting and compassionate. Many of her clients experience acceleration in their healing after completing this work. She is honored and grateful for the opportunity to bring this healing to others. She recognizes this work as sacred, and considers all who participate in it to be answering the highest of spiritual callings.

Charisse is available for one-hour consultations on issues that arise as a result of Tonglen Therapy every evening from 5 – 8 and all day Wednesdays. Anyone requesting a consultation can contact her at or 651 402 6761. You can visit her website here.
