Build Your Own WAKANDA!

I was eager to go and see the film ‘Black Panther’ on my return from the Gambia, but I have to admit, I couldn’t see what all the big fuss was about!

Perhaps, it’s a downfall of having your third eye wide open, but I saw things for what they really were, not all the ‘frills and fancy’.  For instance, TECHNOLOGY is a Western creation, which causes more harm to our Motherland than anywhere else.  For instance, Congo is raped, plundered, and stripped of it’s resources for the coltane needed for our modern mobile phones.

Our true ‘super power’ is NATURE; using the elements of air, fire, water and earth, and calling on our ancestors for help and guidance.

Just as they said in the film, they hide things in plain site, and we still don’t see it.

We spent billions going to see The Black Panther, but where did the profits go?  Did it go to building a Wakanda?  No!  It went into their pockets.

But can we build our own Wakanda?  Yes!

While in the Gambia facilitating The Self Love Retreat, I found the perfect piece of land to build a Retreat Home  (for The Self Love Retreat), and also to build a VILLAGE.  I had the idea to build a village 3 years ago, when I received the premonition that in 5 years time (2020), my people will have to FLEE the UK and USA for their lives, and they will need somewhere to run TO.  Do you have a ‘Get Out’ plan? Also, the next generation of children need somewhere to be raised that is conducive to their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health, away from Western ideologies.  My personal intention for building a village is so that when my grandchildren start coming, they will be raised in the village!

Why not turn ‘Wakanda’ into reality?

I will be building my own little ‘heaven on earth’, and would love you to join  me!  The land is currently labelled as ‘TDA’ land (Tourist Development Agency), but every time I go there, I feel a pull in my gut that lets me know it’s OUR ancestral land, ready for us to claim!  Are you in?  I’m looking for 50 people to get involved in the Kai Ci Kurbi Village project (Kai Ci Kurbi means ‘Come Home’ in Wollof, one of the main languages spoken in the Gambia), where we will lobby the government for some of the land.  On the beachfront will be the Retreat Home, the village will be behind on the mainland, and behind the village will be farmland for us to grow our own food – you’ve got to see it to believe it!  Why not join me in the Gambia in May to come and see for yourself?  I’ve already started putting things in motion for my part of the land, and if you’ve been thinking about leaving the UK or USA (or Caribbean), you can do the same!

I’m doing an event on Saturday 12th May 2-4pm in Tottenham, North London, to share my vision for Kai Ci Kurbi Healing Village; if you’d like to attend, send me a message below.

Make a contribution to The Self Love Retreat Fund, which will go towards buying the land and building the Retreat Home – everyone who makes a donation will be put on the list to receive subsidized places when the Retreat Home is built!  Plant a seed TODAY for the future you want to see BLOSSOM!

Time to Plant Your Seeds!

According to the Law of Nature, ‘you reap what you sow’.  You can’t plant an apple seed and expect to harvest an orange.

If you want more LOVE, plant Seeds of Love; start by filling your Self with Love, so you will radiate love and become a LOVE MAGNET.  Then spread the love you feel inside to others.

If you’re suffering from a Self Love Deficit (like I was) spend time alone, look at yourself in the mirror (make eye contact with yourself) and say “I LOVE YOU”.  Do this a few times.  Secondly, Pour water in a glass and speak into it “I LOVE YOU”, then drink it. We do this on The Self Love Retreat, you can also do it as a 30 Day Self Love Challenge and see what happens! (Let me know!)

If you want better/stronger RELATIONSHIPS do kind things for others; practice the principles ‘do unto others as you would have them to unto you’, and ‘love your neighbour as you love yourself‘.  This includes:

  • Not gossiping about others behind their back
  • Helping others when you can
  • Giving/receiving freely

If you want better HEALTH, plant a health seed today; write a PLAN of how you intend to get fitter/healthier.  This might include:

  • Eating healthier meals/eliminating junk food
  • Adding more fruits, veg, seeds and food provided by Mother Nature to your diet
  • Drinking at least a litre of water a day
  • Eliminating white sugar, flour and dairy products
  • Exercising more, e.g. doing stretches when you wake up in the morning, or walking for at least 20 minutes a day.
  • Getting adequate sleep

If you want more MONEY, then plant a money seed, and make sure you plant it in FERTILE SOIL!

  • Save 10% of your income (give to yourself first)
  • Give to good causes
  • Help others in need when you can

These are all good seeds to plant, which will blossom in the future.  Again, the Law of Nature shows us that when you plant a seed today, it has to go through various stages of germination, budding, and growing before it reaches full bloom, or harvest.  The Laws of Nature never fail!  If you want more MONEY, today I’m giving you the opportunity to plant a money seed into FERTILE SOIL:  Make a contribution to The Self Love Retreat Fund so I can offer subsidized places on my Retreats!  This week, I teamed up with  Dawn Mbaatay (Organization) to build a VILLAGE; they are building Phase One, Numbi Village, and we will be building Phase Two, which will include a Retreat Home for those needing to come for Self-healing, read my Vision Statement for > Kai Ci Kurbi Healing Village < (Kai Ci Kurbi means ‘Come Home‘).

As we were on our way to the beach from  purchasing the land for Numbi Village, we came across this deserted government-owned land.

If you know me at all, I’m a visionary, and I make things happen! I’ve had this photo on my Vision Board for the past couple of years:

This is my vision of the view from our Retreat Home!

The man in blue, Ousman, says he owns the land, but it is ‘TDA’ which means the government has said it cannot be developed.  However, if we build a water-hole, and approach the government with plans for how we plan to develop the land, they will give some to us.  We are going to approach the government based on the fact that we are repatriates, and we need the land to build our village.  But we need to pool our resources together to buy the land, and develop it!

My Vision Statement is being drawn up into a professional Proposal to be submitted to the Gambian government, for how we plan to develop the land.  I live by the motto “Whatever the MIND can CONCEIVE, it can ACHIEVE – I can CREATE whatever I can IMAGINE!” 

Are you part of my tribe?

I’m seeking just 50 people who align with my vision, to build Phase 2, Kai Ci Kurbi Village;  this will involve investing to purchase the land (initially £150,000), and building the village.  At the moment, the land is reserved by the government, but we were told by Ousman that if we build a waterhole and show the government that we can build, they will give us some of the land.  If you would like to be part of this, send me a message: cezanne@journeyofasister.com

In the meantime, I’m planning on renting a Villa in the Gambia for two years to run the Retreats from, which will enable me to offer subsidized places on my retreats.  People will also be able to rent it for their own holidays, which will go towards the building project.  Make a contribution to The Self Love Retreat Fund  – if you prefer to contribute using Paypal, use the email: cezanne121@gmail.com

“Every day is a SEED to your future Happiness, Success, and Well-being; plant the seeds TODAY for the FUTURE you want to see BLOSSOM!” ~ Cezanne

Watch my video-poem:

The Laws of Nature never fail!  Depending on the seed you plant, will determine the harvest you receive – are you planting a FLOWER or a TREE?

I’m seeking to ‘build my tribe‘, if you align with my vision, Let’s Build a Village!  Read my Vision Statement, and make a contribution to the Fund – don’t miss out!  The names of all those who have contributed to the Fund will go on a list, to be able to receive subsidized rates for future Retreats.

Now that you’ve planted your seeds, expect a harvest – and remember, there’s a PROCESS!  Read my ARTicle ‘Use Your Subconscious Mind to Create the Life YOU Choose!‘ and join me on this wonderful journey of Self-actualization!

Plant your seeds and watch them blossom!

Plant Seeds of LOVE in the Garden of Your Mind! (Part 2)

This is why it’s so important that you guard your subconscious mind, in fact the job of your conscious mind is to guard your subconscious mind. See, your subconscious mind is like a young child; it doesn’t think or reason for itself, it simply accepts any information given to it from your conscious mind, the (adult) gardener as facts.  You can either plant your own seeds, or you can allow other people to plant seeds in your mind for you (this is generally what most people do).  Your conscious mind takes IN-formation through what you see and what you hear, which determine the seeds that you plant.  If this IN-formation is good, you’re going to feel good and plant positive thought-seeds.  If the IN-formation’s not so good, you’re going to feel bad and plant negative thought-weeds in your subconscious mind.  Now your emotions are the water which causes your thought-seeds to grow at a much faster rate.  This is the easiest way I can explain this process, so let me repeat it again; your emotions water your thought-seeds and make them grow that much quicker.  So for instance, if you allow your mind to be manipulated by the media, the news, and social media, your emotions will be all over the place.  One minute you’ll be reading a meme that makes you think “Oh, that’s so beautiful, life is wonderful, the universe is for me, I can do anything!” and you feel positive, optimistic, and loving.  Then the next minute you read or watch something that makes you think “Oh my god, how can this be happening in the world? That’s so wrong! Life is against me, I’m going to march to change it!” and you feel angry, frustrated, even depressed.  So there you go; you’ve just planted two different thought-seeds in your subconscious mind; one positive, and one negative –  just like your own garden; you plant a flower, and a weed will spring up right alongside it.  That’s what I love about Mother Nature, she’s the greatest teacher; if you want to know anything about life, just look at nature!  So as I was saying, you can plant seeds in your own mind, or you can allow others to plant the seeds for you.  That’s why I stopped watching the news over 15 years ago – it just made me feel depressed! I spend very little time on social media because I just don’t know what’s going to pop up!  I’m very careful about what I allow into my subconscious mind.

I can’t wait to get onto the role of the super-conscious mind, but first I want to make sure you understand – or innerstand – the roles of the conscious and sub-conscious minds.

So let me explain it again; your mind is the GARDEN, and your thoughts are the SEEDS.  Your conscious mind is the gardener, and your subconscious mind is the FERTILE SOIL into which the seeds are planted.  I first learnt this metaphor from the book ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill.  I’ve been thinking about being rich for a very long time – I had to, in order to change my religious programming of being a poor, wretched sinner. Why do I want to be rich?  So I can reach my full potential, and help others reach their full potential too; I want to be able to travel the world, and see all the beauty of Mother Nature; I want my three ‘suns’ to be able to travel too, so they can realize that there’s more to life than working a 9-5 job to pay bills. I want to be able to buy my house with cash, and I want to be able to inspire others to live their dreams too.  So what seeds are you planting in your subconscious mind? All thoughts are either rooted in LOVE or FEAR.  Those are the only two places that they can come from.  The root of all hateful thoughts is fear, so fear is the opposite of love, not hate.

If you look at my painting ‘Self Love‘, you’ll see that her thoughts are rooted in LOVE:

Her mind is the garden, and it’s growing beautiful flowers – not a weed in sight! You can’t see the root of her thoughts, because they’re buried underground, in her subconscious.  But you can see the results of her subconscious thoughts, the beautiful flowers.

So how do you know what your subconscious thoughts are? Now this is where it begins to get  interesting (if it wasn’t already!)…

In Part 3, I’ll show you how to get to the ROOT CAUSE of any issues you may be facing, and how you can begin the process of transforming your life for GOOD! Click here to read it!

Retreats with Cezanne (Gambia)

Join me on The Self Love Retreat (women only) or the Nurture Your Inner Child Retreat (mixed) in November 2018!  Go here for details

If you would like me to host a Book Signing & Discussion Event at your book club, singles group, church, or any commUNITY event, or would like to interview me, send me a message:

Use Your Subconscious Mind to Create the Life YOU Choose! (Part 1)

Have you ever heard the saying that we only use 5% or 10% maximum of our brain power?  Do you believe it?  Well it’s not true, it’s that consciously we only use up to 10%  – the rest is the domain of our sub-conscious mind.

So how did I, Cezanne, a simple Artist, Poetess and Author come to learn about the power of our subconscious mind?

I stumbled upon this information because I had to figure out what was going on in my OWN mind.  I mean, I was multi-talented, but was failing at everything I put my hands to; I just seemed to keep sabotaging my success in my career, relationships, family, money – my whole life was a mess!  So I needed to study the mind in order to fix mine, and I had no idea that it would take me on such a beautiful journey, which I’m going to take YOU on now…

So let me start by explaining what the sub-conscious mind is, and how it relates to the conscious mind, and the super-conscious mind.  Are you ready?  Okay, use your imagination to picture an iceberg…there are two parts to this iceberg; the smaller part is above sea level; however the majority of the iceberg is underwater. The part you can see above water represents your conscious mind, and the majority of the iceberg which is underwater represents your sub-conscious mind. The word sub relates to being ‘under’, like submerged, submarine and sub-conscious.  Therefore your sub-conscious is the part of your mind that is ‘under’ – it’s unseen.  Your conscious mind is on the surface, that’s the part of your mind that you and everyone else relates to.  But your subconscious mind is the bigger part of the iceberg – the other 90%.  See?

Another metaphor I like to use when referring to the subconscious mind is of it being underground; your thoughts are the seeds, your conscious mind is the gardener planting the seeds, and your subconscious mind is the fertile soil that the seeds are planted into.  My painting ‘Black Orchid’ illustrates this perfectly:

The black background represents the dark soil of the subconscious mind.  Her thought-seeds are being planted into the fertile soil, which then goes through various stages of germination and budding, until eventually it reaches full bloom.  She looks happy, so she must be planting positive thought-seeds in the garden of her mind. The affirmation for this painting is “I am blossoming!” which also means “I am prospering!”

Now here’s the catch; whether your thoughts are POSITIVE or NEGATIVE, they still go through this same process.   So are you planting positive thought-seeds, or negative thought-weeds in the garden of your mind?

You can choose whether to grow flowers, or to grow weeds, or like most gardens, they can both grow side by side.  Your job as the gardener is to consciously uproot negative thought-weeds and replace them with positive thought-seeds, in order to keep the garden of your mind well cultivated.  Because whatever’s growing in your subconscious mind is going to blossom at some point, for all around you to see…

Watch my video-poem ‘Fertile Soil‘ to get a better ‘inner-standing’ of this process, which I wrote and recorded in 2009 when I was learning how to uproot my negative thought-weeds and replace them with positive thought-seeds:

My Review on The Self Love Retreat (Gambia)

My first Self Love Retreat  ended last Saturday, and I’m now thinking about how I can make it even better!  Firstly, the three ladies who joined me commented that it went far too quickly; I personally arrived two weeks ahead of the Retreat in order to unwind and de-stress, and while I had intended for us to have plenty of time to do that, we were trying to cram so much into the week!

We started off with a Pamper Day at the Kairaba Hotel in Kotu, where we had a full body massage, facial, manicure and pedicure.

I purposefully kept the numbers for the first Retreat small because The Healthy Ways Guest House (where we were staying with Mama Naasira and Dr Joe Bledsoe) only holds up to 6 people.  Their Spicy Tasty Vegan Cuisine meals played a big part in the healing aspect of the Retreat.

The aim of The Self Love Retreat is to nurture your Self from the INSIDE, OUT.  The Pamper Day was for our outer self, while the Self-nurturing workshops were for our inner Self.  The first workshop was entitled “Who Am I?” which questioned whether we are the things we do, what we have, or what we project to the outside world.   By the end of the workshop, we had developed personalized Positive Affirmations to help re-define ourselves, and speak it into being.  In Part Two, ‘Who I AM!’ (the following day), we recorded the affirmations to music.  This is now a tool we can use to play just before we go to sleep, to help re-program our subconscious mind.  (It’s our subconscious programming that we’re running on most of the time, not our conscious thoughts).

“The Loving  Me workshop gave me a lot of food for thought for reflection” ~ Deanne

I’ve been working with Positive Affirmations for about 15 years, which has brought me from having a ‘Self Love Deficit’ with very low self-esteem, lacking self-confidence, and being a blocked writer and artist for over 20 years, to writing and performing poetry, writing books, painting, and now organizing the The Self Love Retreat. I’m simply sharing some of the techniques that have helped me raised my levels of confidence and Self-esteem, helped me unblock as a writer and artist, and to push myself out of my comfort zone to achieve more.  The day before the Retreat has due to start I was writing my journal and the first thing I wrote was “Who am I to organize The Self Love Retreat?  What do I know about Self Love?”  This was my critical voice talking, and my old programming of not being ‘good enough’ was trying to creep back in!  I had to silence it with Positive Affirmations about Who I Am.  In the past, I would have succumbed to those voices, and crawled back into the dark cavity in the corner of my mind.  But no, I’m here to make a difference, and in doing so, help others to transform their own lives too!

In another workshop, I shared some research conducted by Dr Masaru Emoto, about the effect our thoughts and words have on water, and because we are made up of 70% water, how pow-HER-full our words really are:

We then stuck “I LOVE YOU” onto a glass of water, and focused our thoughts and intentions into the water, before drinking it – try it!  We also looked into a mirror and said “I LOVE YOU” to ourselves.  This can feel awkward at first, but the more you do it, the easier it will feel.

We also wrote Love Letters (or poems) to our Self based on the Affirmations we developed, and used them to make our Self a card, which we can now refer back to whenever we need a pick-me-up:

When you fill your Self with Love, you can then give of your overflow, and radiate the love you feel for your Self – you will then attract that love back to your Self!

Self Love 30 Day Challenge!

Do these daily rituals to develop Self Love, and see what happens:

  • Close your eyes and go deep within (or look in the mirror) and say repeatedly “I love You!”
  • Pour water in a cup, and say “I love you” into the water before drinking it

If you did the 30 Day Challenge, email me your results: cezanne@journeyofasister.com

Aside from the 5 Self-nurturing workshops, we also enjoyed some Gambian nightlife, and went clubbing two of the nights! I’m not a clubbing person, but I loved the vibe and the Afrobeats!

I had these dresses made especially for the Colour Therapy workshop, which was also meant to incorporate dance, but we ran out of time!  I explained how different colours affect the mood and emotions, and how wearing colourful clothes can make you (and others) FEEL.  Try it!  Incorporating more colour in your life especially during the dark, winter months will help lift your mood and emotions.  (For more information on how I healed myself from Seasonal Affective Disorder using Colour Therapy, visit my Art page).

We didn’t spend enough time on the beach, but we enjoyed early-morning yoga:

I also organized a Day Trip to Kunta Kinte Island, which took us about 3 hours to get to, including two river crossings! We were taken to the original place Kunta Kinte lived (not where they take tourists).  On the long  journey there, we had to take a ferry and a small boat.  Someone had sent me a photo of a boat owned by a sister named Aminatta, encouraging us to use her (in the yellow skirt), but when we got to the island and I found her, the boat was out of action because it needed repairs to the value of around £150:

I told her I would help raise the money and get it to her as quickly as possible, you can send her a gift towards her boat repair using my Gofundme  (put ‘BOAT’ as a reference) and I’ll make sure she gets it ( we’ve raised £45 so far).

See my Instagram  or the Journey of a Sister Facebook Page for more pics and videos, I’m slowly getting around to uploading them all! (feel free to add me).

Geraldine’s Feedback:

“I had an amazing time on The Self Love Retreat – I recommend to everyone!  I feel enlightened, refreshed, healthier and positive.  I’ve learned many techniques to benefit me going forward.  Met so many great people who I intend to keep in contact with.  We made so many memories, I really wanted to stay longer!  So glad I went and Cezanne is the hostess with the mostest, so inspirational, love her!  I will defo do another retreat with you.  I loved Gambia too, will go back”

The date for the next Self Love Retreat (Gambia) is 1- 10 Nov 2018  book your place early, only 8 available!

We will be staying at Ocean Villa Heights, a lovely hotel in Bufurt with swimming pool, internet, restaurant, and spa facilities, and it’s just a few minutes walk to the beach!  To book, go HERE (or send me an email to cezanne@journeyofasister.com pay by bank transfer)

Review of the Big Launch, Join us for the rest of the Tour!

If you missed the Big Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour, you really missed out!

I explained why I had invited TC Carrier, author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ and King Kevin Dorival, author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ over from the USA to join me on this tour, and how our books compliment each other’s.

In the first session (1-3pm) myself, TC Carrier and Kevin Dorival answered questions from the audience; not many people had read our books yet, so it was more of an introduction about what we do, why we’ve organised the Kings & Queens Book Tour, and to purchase the books to read ahead of the following events.

Some people enjoyed the first session so much, that they purchased tickets for the second session (4-7pm) organised by Lady Tamar of Kings & Queens United.

King Kevin Dorival talked about the 7 Queen Types, and TC Carrier did a very engaging presentation called ‘Law of Gender‘ where he explained the roles of the Masculine and Feminine Energies.  Watch this short clip where TC answers his question “What is most important, the Masculine or Feminine inner-g?” during ‘the battle of the sexes’:

The men reasoning what it means to be a King:

I was so honored to have the great historian Robin Walker join us at the Launch – he even bought my book! I did a course with him about 5 years ago, which really helped to build Self and Racial Esteem – we had a rich history BEFORE slavery!  His book ‘When We Ruled’ fitted in nice with the theme of the tour, and I was so chuffed that he took time out of his busy schedule to attend.  He runs Black History classes every Sunday afternoon, which are funded by his organization, if you’re interested in attending email him at historicalwalker@yahoo.com

Afterwards, Richie from BlackIceTV7 interviewed some of the attendees to get their feedback on the event which will be included in their footage:

DJ Supreme from Conscious radio also interviewed some of the attendees:

The tour ends on Sunday 8th Octoberdon’t miss the rest of the events!

Join us TOMORROW Wednesday 4th October from 5-7.30pm at Marcus Garvey Library, 1 Philip Lane N15 4JA for a session aimed at both youth and adults, based upon TC Carrier’s other book ‘Black Son Rising; Re-awakening the Warrior DNA in Black Men‘ (Marcus Garvey Library  is situated inside Tottenham Green Leisure Centre) This is a FREE event, just turn up!

Join us at the Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour! (Sun 1st Oct)

The Kings and Queens Book Tour starts next week! Come and learn the secret science to Black Male & Female Relationships!  Have you got your tickets? They’re going fast!

I’ve invited TC Carrier, author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ and King Kevin Dorival, author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ to join me from the USA, to share some important information that will help us elevate ourselves as a commUNITY, and regain our rightful positions in society!  This is no joke…

As I was writing the First Edition of my Self-help novel (then titled ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!) I woke up in the middle of the night and ‘auto-wrote’ the scene where Suzanne and Charles performed their first sex ritual.  By the following year they went on to build a multi-million pound business!  46,000 words of my novel were ‘channelled’, which meant I didn’t have to think about what I was writing, it came through me rather than from me.  When I published the e-book on Amazon, I did a search for it (as you do when you’re a new author!) and TC’s book ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ came up beside it as ‘recommended reading’.

I was curious so I ordered it, and lo and behold, his book explained the whole science behind what I thought I’d made up!  It took me a few years to get in contact with TC, and I was ecstatic when he agreed to come to London to share this knowledge with our commUNITY!

King Kevin Dorival contacted me last year and asked me to write the Foreword for his book ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘.

I was happy to, as the King/Queen theme run heavily through my books, art and poetry!

(My painting ‘My King’ features in Year Five of my Revised book, now titled ‘Journey of a Sister’)

King Kevin had also referenced TC’s book in his, so I invited them both together, to join me in getting this important information into our commUNITY, is this is the key to us elevating our relationships and re-building our empires! Our ancestors built great civilizations by harnessing their sexual energy and using it to create.  In order to regain our rightful positions in this world, me must get back to practicing these ancient rituals!

I now truly believe that this is the reason why there’s a covert operation to keep the Black Man and Woman apart – because we’re powerful together, when we’re operating on a high level of consciousness! (this relates to the crown chakra, hence the title of the tour).

If you have a religious mindset, the very word ‘ritual’ might seem off-putting, but as I explained in my novel, the word ritual is found in spiritual!

In today’s society, the sexual act has been degraded, and we’ve been taught to dissipate our sexual energy instead of harnessing it.  Most people only operate from their lower, animalistic nature when having sex.  But did you know that there’s ‘another level’ you can reach in your sex and spirituality?  This is what you will learn when you join us on the Kings and Queens Book Tour.  On Thursday 5th October from 6-9pm TC Carrier will be doing a Lecture on ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ – don’t miss it!

On the same day from 2-5pm, King Kevin Dorival will be running a workshop to help you identify what type of Queen you are, so you can attract the right type of King.  Each of these workshops are only £15, attend both for just £25.00 (use the same link to book individual workshops).

Join us at the Launch on Sunday 1st October!

Meet the Authors at the Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour on Sunday 1st October, 1-3pm at 146 Queen Victoria Street, Blackfriars.  I will be interviewing TC and King Kevin, and this will also be your opportunity to ask us any questions!  The topic will be “What does it mean to be a King or a Queen?” reserve your  ticket now – limited seating, all we ask for is a donation towards the tour to cover travel, accommodation, and meals etc.  Myself, TC and Kevin have so far used our own resources to put this tour together, any amount whether small or large will be greatly appreciated!  From 4-7pm both authors will be on the Panel at the Kings & Queens United event (same venue), your ticket price includes a meal, to book yours >> click on this link <<

TC and King Kevin will sign your books at the Launch, order them online if possible so you can read them ahead of the tour.  You can order your signed paperback of ‘Journey of a Sister’ below, with FREE postage in the UK:

Journey of a Sister is the story of a young woman raised in the ‘faith’, who reaches a point where she begins to question what she was taught to believe.  She writes God a fearless letter, asking all the questions the church couldn’t answer, and ends it by asking for “the Truth!”.  Join Suzanne on her quest for “the Truth!” about sex before marriage, the creative power of her thoughts, her African ancestry, and the history of the religion she had been indoctrinated into!  It is a beautiful Black Love story that breaks some unspoken taboos in a thought-provoking yet enlightening way that thousands of women and men can relate to, download Years 1-11 FREE!

Join us on the Kings and Queens Book Tour (London) 1-8 Oct!

Black History Month is an opportunity to explore how our past has affected the way we relate to each other today, and what we can do to heal, so that we can reclaim our greatness!  Our ancestors built great civilizations, and the key to us rebuilding our empires is buried in our DNA.  How did they do it?  It was connected with their sexual energy. In today’s society, we are taught to dissipate our sexual energy, instead of harnessing this powerful creative force.

I have invited two authors from the USA to join me on the Kings and Queens Book Tour, (1-8 Oct), which will cover North, South, East and West London!

 King Kevin Dorival is author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ (I wrote the Foreword), and TC Carrier is author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male and Female Sex‘.   Their books compliment my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘, and all 3 books will help YOU on your own journey of Self-discovery and Self-healing, and help you re-member your power as a melanin-rich being!

What does it mean to be a King or a Queen? (How can you tell if you are one)  How do you become one? (if you’re not already) What TYPE of Queen are you?  (so you can attract the right type of King), What happens when a King finds a Queen?  (What can they achieve together)

Come and find out in a series of Book Signing & Discussion Events, Workshops, and Lectures!  (This will also be an opportunity to meet other Kings and Queens, or King and Queens in the making).  The schedule is as follows:

We are inviting community organizations who work with our youth (especially those being let down by the system) to bring them along.  Both TC Carrier and Kevin Dorival are youth mentors in the USA, and are keen to have an opportunity to mentor our youth in the UK too!  What strategy should our youth be using to vent their frustration, instead of taking it out on each other? The entry fee is to cover the cost of the venue; if you are a black business or entrepreneur and would like to sponsor (pay for) our youth to attend this event, please contact me or the organisations to pay for them to attend, or just go to the Eventbrite page and pay, and donate them to the organization of your choice, such as Manhood Academy, Black Child Agenda, or Mentor Kings.

The topic for this evening is ‘When Kings Meet Queens!

Between 5-6pm there will be entertainment (including poetry by myself, dance from Julius of StepFreeDance, and music), food and drinks will be on sale, and you can also get your books signed!  Are you a King looking for your Queen? This will also be a great networking opportunity to meet other Kings and Queens (or Kings and Queens in the making)  >>  Book your tickets here <<

Sunday 8th October 5-7.30pm @ Brixton Library, SW9 (£5 in advance, £7 otd)

Topic: Rebuilding Our Empires

This event is the culmination of the whole tour, and is your last opportunity to meet King Kevin and TC Carrier before they head back to the USA – if you’ve read their books you will surely want to meet them and get your books signed, if you haven’t done already!  We will have an open discussion on ‘How do we begin to rebuild our empires?‘ (our relationships, family and commUNITY).  How do we reclaim our rightful position in society?  What needs to change, for this to happen?  

We will also be discussing how we can carry on the work once the book tour is over, and how YOU can get involved!  There will also be giveaways, prizes, and lots of interactive discussion!

It costs £70 per hour to hire Brixton Library (with a discount!).  I’ve kept the ticket prices for each event as low as possible, just so you can attend at least one, and to make sure that you can still get the books!  This is not a profit-making venture, but something I’ve put together to help us as a commUNITY to heal.

Purchase your books in advance and read them before the tour, so that you can join in the discussions from an informed perspective; they will only have a limited amount of books with them, so purchase your book online, and they will sign it for you at the events!
