Let the Beauty of what you Love be what you do...

An ancient wisdom by Sufi mystic and poet Rumi says: "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do". I love this quote as it prompts us to be very intent everyday on following our passions and dreams. I am grateful that one of my mentors (R.I.P Art H. Harper) shared with me this secret when I started my professional career. It has been one of the threads of my life. Although the journey is extremely challenging at times, it continues to offer tremendous growth opportunities and I feel blessed to say that I have never felt I have worked a day in my life...

My wish and hope is to support RECONNECTION: Reconnection with ourselves, Reconnection with others and Reconnection with Nature. Then, together we can co-create a conscious world in which we all thrive.

Tounché Global Consciousness Summit is a day-long lifechanging soul retreat held on sacred locations around the world (Africa and Asia / expanding to America and Europe). A truly diverse gathering seeking to open a dialogue and offer solutions while creating an unforgettable healing experience.

Everywhere we turn the world seems filled with hate, anger, and violence. We are constantly inundated with messages of separation, religious wars, xenophobia, racism, and gender divide. After observing these experiences, we are left asking, ‘What can we do to help? Are there different solutions we haven’t tried? How can we be changemakers in our businesses, communities and our daily lives?
When perusing the spiritual event landscape, we notice that spaces that are meant to be of solace are many times segregated. Inclusivity and consciousness evolution are the goals of Tounché, which means “shift” in the Yoruba language of Benin and Nigeria. The Summit features international thought-leaders, wisdom keepers, global experts, spiritual visionaries, healers, storytellers and meditation teachers representing the diversity of the world.
