The primary focus of African Thought is transformation—Transformation of the soul through the experience of life or lives, transformation of the seed from the seed to tree; transformation of the mind from the terrestrial to the heavenly. The genius constantly emphasizes movement —the Creative Spark of the soul as the central genius of being.
The Cultural Wellness Center is a transformative space that incubates culturally-based solutions to real world problems. Our work at the Cultural Wellness Center is to move from race to culture. By engaging the generative practice of moving from race to culture, one engages the transformative process of being and becoming oneself through the lens of culture. The knowledge produced from this process creates the space for one to heal themselves and build community.
As a recognized authority on the process of cultural wellness, we offer experiential learning opportunities that actively boost well-being, improve relationships, build communities, and train organizations.
The Cultural Wellness Center offers research-based classes, coaching, consulting, and certifications that support people, families, communities, and organizations in developing culturally-based solutions to real-world problems.
An African-Centered paradigm of thought that engages the transformative process of Being and Becoming.
Health Powderhorn grew out of a shared passion of the Allina Foundation, Way to Grow, and the Powderhorn Family Network Community Council in a belief in the ability of people and communities to transform themselves through the quality of their relationships, the strength of their commitment and the sharing of their power and resources
The Cultural Wellness Center opened in Minneapolis in October 1996 as the living legacy of ‘Healthy Powderhorn,’ an intense two-year community health initiative that involved conversations with more than 1,000 neighborhood residents about health concerns and problems that they experienced with local medical systems. The initiative engaged area residents in making changes in the community to foster healthy living.
