The Time is NOW for Our Collective Healing

It can be discouraging, even heartbreaking, to hear about the pain and suffering our global family members are experiencing — in our neighborhoods, home towns and all over the world.

If the racism, corruption, environmental destruction and human rights abuses you see in the media or witness first-hand leave you feeling hopeless, helpless or confused about what we can do to create real, lasting change... you’re not alone.

With so much focus on all that’s wrong with our world, it can be easy to lose sight of the fact that we have visionaries, community leaders and citizens who are performing great acts of love, compassion and service every single day — forging new pathways and presenting innovative solutions for these challenging times.

And so many of these who exemplify humanity’s extraordinary potential draw their soul-powered strength, creativity and brilliance from African American wisdom.

Now, in a special series, they are uniting to share their valuable knowledge, insights and life-affirming practices with you.

With The African American Wisdom Summit, you’ll discover critical information needed for personal and collective healing, as well as actions we can all take to uplift lives and foster UNITY.

This series provides a truly unique way to participate in Black History Month each February... as we honor history AND vision our future. Members of every race come together to address the injustices and traumas while also celebrating the positive steps being taken to create a society where EVERYONE thrives.

Additionally, we cherish the unique flavors, traditions and spiritual wisdom that African Americans (and others of the African Diaspora) contribute to our society throughout the year, through wise leadership, profound artistry, words of truth and inspired actions that transcend what we believe to be possible.

If you want to discover the dramatic shifts that can transpire when we infuse African American wisdom into our daily lives, communities and the world — join us to receive your free bonus recordings and be notified of our next live event here:

Wisdom From the Heart & Soul

Too often, we define our conversation about African Americans around the challenges of racism and injustice, which — while important — can distract us from appreciating the amazing gifts, blessings and knowledge that have emerged from this rich culture.

Some of America’s greatest leaders — in realms from social change to spirituality to entertainment to business — have emerged out of a history of oppression.

In The African American Wisdom Summit series, bright lights share their secrets to success as well as the practices and traditions that sustain them during the most challenging moments on their personal journeys.

Here’s just a small sampling of what our brilliant speakers have shared...

LeVar Burton shares on the power of merging education and entertainment as well as the responsibility to spread the love of reading to new generations.


Cynthia James brings to light the importance of Radical Self Care while healing wounds of self-worth and histories of personal and collective community trauma.


Sonya Renee Taylor reveals how radical self love is essential for global justice work.


Luisah Teish takes you on an ancestral journey to help you crack the code of your inherited genius.

Join The African American Wisdom Summit to be notified of our next live event where you’ll discover practices, tools and techniques that fully engage your heart and soul — empowering and equipping you to co-create a world that truly honors and celebrates diversity in all its forms.

Moving Toward Global Unity

It’s difficult to talk about the huge racial divide taking place in America and across the planet, however this is THE most important conversation we as humanity can be having. In The African American Wisdom Summit series, we’re not only opening up an honest dialogue and global conversation on race, we’re also identifying clear ways for you to create sustainable changes.

This series is not only for African Americans, but for every citizen of the world who wishes to be blessed, transformed and bear witness to the flowering of real genius, great love, and profound wisdom.

Whether you’re an African American community leader, a caucasian social justice advocate or a mother who aches when explaining discrimination to her 5-year-old, the visionary and practical presenters in this series share on eye-opening (and heart-opening!) subjects that can deeply transform your life... and the lives of all future generations.

With this extraordinary series, you’ll discover:

  • Accessible, soul-powered practices you can use in your daily life to support personal and collective healing and evolution
  • A deeper awareness of the the African American experience and the unspoken power dynamics People of Color face every day
