CHRISTOPHER "CHASE" CAREY, MBA, 3rd DEGREE BLACK BELT, YOGA TEACHER, WHIL. CERTIFIED MINDFUL LEADER, AUTHOR, SPEAKER, CORPORATE TRAINER
Chief Mindfulness & Meditation Warrior
Christopher “Chase” Carey spent 20 years in Corporate America’s Health Insurance and Consulting industry, in significant positions. In 1998, as a VP of Underwriting for Aetna, Inc., he contacted the Chief Medical Officer telling him of the benefits of Meditation and other Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) techniques. He offered to help the company become a major force in bringing these techniques to the health insurance industry and the people it took care of. He received a courteous reply admitting it all made sense but that he was simply “too far ahead of them.” 17 years later Aetna started teaching its employees to Meditate. Don't wait 17 years to learn Mindfulness and Meditation.
MEDITATION TRAINING. In the 1990’s his Meditation work began at The Monroe Institute in Virginia. He participated in 6 week-long programs consisting of 24/7 immersions into deep Meditative states and guided exploration within them. The training enabled him to re-enter any number of Meditative states, near instantaneously, at will, anywhere, anytime, including at work while solving complex problems as a career insurance executive. He can teach you to do this too. He also trained with Karen Malik, MA and Harvey Grady of the Center for Human Consciousness and others.
Chase teaches his personally developed Advanced forms of Meditation: Inner Essence Meditation(TM), Professional Meditation(TM), and Stress Domino Stress Reduction Meditation(TM) and is a Certified Meditation Teacher for the Sarah’s McLean’s SEED Method(TM). Chase became a “whil. Certified Mindful Leader” in 2017.
MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING. In September 2012, after experiencing treatment during a surgical hospital stay that Chase considered “not appropriate,” he vowed to himself that he would never let anyone take advantage of him again. So pursuing a 25 year dream, he entered the local Taekwondo School and signed up for Black Belt training – which scared the living daylights (polite phrase) out of him! He was out of shape, overweight, and recovering from abominable surgery but he was not about to be defeated. He trained and is currently training under Master Mark Burns, 6th Degree Black Belt, who is a 4 time World Champion and has trained more than 1,000 Black Belts and more than 100 Martial Arts Instructors. Chase also trains under Mr. Jonathan Chapovsky, 4th Degree Black Belt and Chief Instructor. Both of Karate Atlanta (which are ATA Taekwondo training schools.)
A little less than 4 years later as he was training to test for his 2nd Degree Black Belt, he began to ask himself how he could share with others what he had learned during his rigorous training in Martial Arts. Several months later “Chasing Your Mind Warrior! – Learn to Think and Act Like a Black Belt” was created and should be available in March 2019.
AUTHOR. In 2014 he published his first book: "Chasin' Meditation: The Step By Step Guide to a Stress-Free Life Through Meditation." The book is directed specifically toward today's Stressed Professionals and is now in its 2nd Edition.
Chase is a Ghost Writer, Certified Reiki Master, Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner, 3rd Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo, Certified Master Scuba Diver, Tactical Firearms Enthusiast, and works as an Actor in TV and Movies (Drop Dead Diva, Necessary Roughness, Satisfaction, A&Es COMA, Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural," and more). He has Guest Lectured at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He received a BS from Penn State University and his MBA from Villanova University (where he is a Guest Lecturer).
