charlotte goldmanCharlotte came to Bowenwork in a mysterious way. She and her husband lived and worked 5 years in a tropical ashram in Southern Florida with a meditation master until his passing at the age of 95 at the end of 2002. They returned to their roots in Washington in 2004. After the years of living in an uplifting atmosphere, she was seeking new work she could do that would incorporate the experiences gleaned in the retreat setting and that could satisfy her desire to continue to live and work in a tranquil and inspiring setting.

A series of circumstances following a couple of trips to Brazil to seek answers and experience Brazilian spirituality led to a “reading” in which she was told: “Bowenwork, Charlotte, Bowenwork. It is written in big letters in the air.” She had never heard of Bowenwork and was skeptical at first. However after experiencing it, she discovered that the same energy accessed in meditation was moving in Bowenwork. Not only did the energy released in the body have an intelligence of it’s own and knew what needed healing, but it also created profound relaxation in the client. That won her over.

Charlotte is a graduate of Port Townsend School of Massage and is Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. She is a Professional Bowenwork Practitioner and is an accredited member of the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia. She also holds a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology.

Silver Woman Bowenworkcharlotte and david goldman

The name Silver Woman was the affectionate nickname given to me by my meditation master, Paramahamsa Hariharananda Giri.  While it was his way of recognizing my work, it did not convey any particular advancement—but rather honored and encouraged my committment to meditation and the desire to integrate spiritual truths into daily life.  I use the name Silver Woman to remind me to strive for soul awareness and to appreciate that we are all on journeys of transformation in these changing times!
