Yogiraj Charles Bates

10th Dot Founder and Beloved Teacher


Steeped in both modern and ancient systems thinking, Yogiraj Charles presented a rare combination of services to humanity. He was a yogi-adept with 40 years of study with his teacher, HH Sri Swami Rama, and an executive with 30 years utilizing his specialty training in Gestalt Theory, Transactional Analysis, Neuro-linguistic Programming and several more organizational development methodologies. He served as adjunct faculty at St. Catherine's College and The Gestalt Institute of Cleveland.

Yogiraj Charles quested to understand the inward and outward sciences of humanity directing him to take a seven year sabbatical in 2001, where he focused on his own leadership preparation. His deep study of human anatomy, the psyche, global history and the realms reached in meditation influenced his rich relationships with a broad community. He dedicated his life to guide others in conditioning their own collaborative leadership tactics.

10th Dot serves as a learning field founded upon and enriched by his vast knowledge and practical experience.
