“Inner”tainment is media that is empathetic to the psyche (cognitive state) of the consumer.


Welcome to The Being Academy,

a digital gymnasium for mental clarity, spiritual growth, and practical exercises

to help believers live the very good life God created us for. 

The academy is an online wellness platform leveraging entertainment, spirituality, cognitive

behavioral health interventions, and technology as tools for personal transformation. 

We call this innertainment. 

Our digital content, books, games, online courses, and interactive wellness applications

are bible-based empowerment tools to help you maximize your God gifted potential

and increase your capacity to Just Be. 

We are artists, storytellers, interaction designers, ministers of faith, and wellness professionals

who believe in the power of media as an agent for social change and the power of faith to

transform lives. 

 Take a break | Self-reflect | Pray | Meditate | JUST BE.
