Welcome to The Being Academy,
a health and wellness community
for mental clarity, personal growth, and
mindfulness transformation practices.
We help members maximize their God gifted potential
to live a very good life.
We are artists, storytellers, interaction designers, ministers of faith, business professionals, and wellness practitioners
leveraging media and technology as
agents for healing, peace-making, and social change.
Our media, spiritual gym, and eLearning tools live at the intersection of entertainment, spirituality, cognitive science, education, culture, and human development.
Love Life | Live Well | Be True
Seek to see, be, and live as God imagined,
