John Maxwell says: “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”
Christopher “Chase” Carey/Chasin Mediation
Founder & Leader
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 is teaching its employees to Meditate.
In the 1990’s his Meditation work began at The Monroe Institute in Virginia. He participated in 6 week-long programs, which are 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.
Chase teaches his personally developed Advanced forms of Meditation: Inner Essence Meditation(TM), Professional Meditation(TM), and Stress Domino Stress Meditation(TM) and is a Certified Meditation Teacher for the Sarah’s McLean’s Simple, Easy Every Day Meditation (SEED) Method(TM).
He is an Author (Chasin’ Meditation), Professional Speaker, Certified Reiki Master, Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner, 1st Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo, Certified Master Scuba Diver, Tactical Firearms Enthusiast, and has worked as an Extra in TV and Movies (Drop Dead Diva, Necessary Roughness, Satisfaction, A&Es COMA, and more). He received his MBA from Villanova University and BS from Penn State University.
