Get Free! is a creative consultancy that helps changemakers become emotionally healthy and inspired through mindfulness.
The work of getting free isn’t easy. It’s especially not easy when you’ve made it your mission to not only free yourself, but also help your community get free. The work of fighting oppression out there is hard, and in doing it we often neglect the inner work needed to heal.
We believe that looking inward is the first step towards liberation. Walk with us and see what might unfold when you trust yourself as your greatest teacher.

Charlotte Nguyen is a multilingual (Vietnamese-French- English) human rights worker, trauma sensitive meditation instructor, radical life coach, educator, and proud Asian-American queer.
My name is Charlotte and I like to hang out at the intersections of spiritual practice, social action, and creative expression. For the last decade, I’ve served nonprofits dedicated to healing and transformation on issues such as gentrification, youth advocacy, sexual violence, ethnic conflict, and now spiritually-informed activism with Against The Stream Meditation Society. My refugee parents from Vietnam brought me to meditation at age 7, but I devoted myself to the practice after the death of my first love in 2006.
As I’ve crisscrossed the world from D.C. to the Middle East and now California, one common thread is my love of teaching and community. I now teach mindfulness in Los Angeles and facilitate healing justice programs for social change agents and organizations. I love bodies of water, science fiction, orange juice, and Frank Ocean (even though they’re all impermanent things).
I have over 10 years of experience serving social justice communities throughout Los Angeles, Washington DC, and the Bay Area including Amnesty International USA, DC Rape Crisis Center, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees. I am licensed as a Certified Professional in Training Management (CPTM) and trained as a Mindfulness Educator through Mindful Schools.
I am in the process of earning my
Certification in Mindfulness Facilitation through UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research
Program. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in International Peace & Conflict Resolution with a minor in Philosophy from American University; however, I credit most of my intellectual growth to friends and family members who have shared their experiences with me.
