Coco (2017) & the Energy of the AncestorsTheir energy is all around us. Its also the first energy we should practice connecting to before we embark on our spiritual journey. Having their guidance and support is seriously life changing. In this lecture and discussion, Sifu DeVante Love will talk about the ancestral realm and what happens when we connect to ancestral energy. Then we will move into a discussion about the depiction of ancestors in popular culture so that these depictions can be of service to your own spiritual development. Join us for free on zoom!

For years I felt worthless, unloveable, and weak...
I took action to protect my heath by changing my diet and joining the wrestling team hoping for a better future. The team wasn't a safe space for me as a gay teenager, so I left and began training in Kung Fu. There in the studio, I felt accepted and was encouraged to embrace my spiritual side which I had gotten closely in touch with. I diligently trained, competed in tournaments, and earned my black sash in record time. In college, I earned a scholarship that sent me to China where I ended up living for over four years. By day, I taught people how to develop their emotional and spiritual intelligence... by night, I was sharing tea and training with various Kung Fu masters. I then moved to New York to obtain a Masters in Spiritual Psychology from Columbia University and created a framework that integrated spiritual healing, psychology, and my Kung Fu practice. I travelled, performed, and refined the Healing Kung Fu modality before competing in the Gay Olympics in Paris where I had a spiritual awakening. I realized I was destined to go public with teachings and create a safe space for queer folks and people of color to learn how to find their inner peace and heal themselves. I became even more passionate about cultivating Healing Kung Fu as a space where folks can navigate issues of oppression, systemic racism, and anti-gayness so that they can feel more empowered in their bodies and in their lives. I am now a Buddhist monk, training to be a Lama so that I can create even more powerful spaces for deep transformation.
