About the Book

This book is the autobiographical account of Charles' life to date. It tells the story of how an inquisitive young boy from a small farming background went soul searching back in the early seventies. His search led him on a journey of self-discovery, which he calls the journey home.

This book is a fascinating read of a healer's life. The struggles he had with issues of anger, fear, frustration and sometimes total confusion. Through the many trials and tribulations of his search, he stumbled on the wonderful gift of healing. He talks openly about his own healing works, the highs and the lows and how at one point he nearly packed it all in.

However, after all the angles the healing path took him, he reassures the reader that the true sense of power comes from within. He assures us that somehow God has a plan for us all and we should always believe in ourselves and never give up.

He was inspired to open his great-grandparents house known as the Castle. This book tells the story of the Castle and explained how the Castle Taiji Healing Centre was born. The centre which now allows him to see hundreds of clients on a regular basis, with the hope of bringing them some peace of mind, so that they too will find their niche - their own "journey home".
