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,
very good!
