Event Details

2019 marks the 400th anniversary since our ancestors crossed the Atlantic and landed on the shores of the Americas and West Indies.

Have you ever wondered how the enslavement of our ancestors and the colonization of Africa still impacts the health and well-being of the African Diaspora?

Every single member of the diaspora has thought about this question at one time or another. We are the population that experiences the greatest level of civil unrest, mental and physical illness, and poverty across the globe. Yes, you may be doing well, but this is not about "ME," it's about "WE."

On September 7th, 2019, Dr. Joan Samuels-Dennis, forgiveness therapist, author, transformational speaker, and social activists will host a mass forgiveness and healing session with 50 members of the African diaspora. Dr. Joan is the author of 490: Forgive and Live Fearlessly.

Why should we forgive the atrocities of the past? Because the traumas of our ancestors are in our DNA. Epigenetics has shown that fears developed during a traumatic historical moment [i.e. holocaust] will transfer from one generation to the next for up to 4 generations. Epigenetics is only providing scientific proof for what has been known to Christians for centuries.

It has been 400+ years since the first enslaved Africans came to North and South America. The trauma transfer should have ended, but the colonization and post-colonization experience has been one of continued violent attacks on the body, mind, and spirit of the Black man, woman, and child. The wounds of our ancestors are buried in our DNA and just like a traumatized individual, our nation needs to heal.

Forgiveness heals and in turn, allows us to live fearlessly. When we move through a conscious forgiveness process, it allows us to see how we continue to inflict the wounds of colonization on ourselves. A mass forgiveness shifts the spiritual atmosphere and allows the Holy Spirit to heal even those not present.

Join us on September 7th, 2019 for a mass forgiveness and prayer for the African Nation. When we heal, the very consciousness of humanity will shift.
