About The Curator of

Afrikan Culture  



From the humble beginnings of her loving grandparents and elder aunties "Mayasa" (MAH-yah-sah) experienced the benefits of natural herbal remedies early in childhood. There is no doubt in her mind that plant leaves, bark, berries, flowers, and roots grow here on earth for us to use for our benefit. This philosophy is a driving force that keeps her creating her natural product line, building a wellness holistic spa and resort in Westmoreland Jamaica, and acquiring the most up-to-date certifications in Midwifery and Birth Work. Maintaining her Caribbean style and Togo, West Afrikan indigenous distinctiveness, inner peace, and fitness is also something that she holds true to herself. 

A vegan health enthusiast who attributes her new mind study to her experiences in Kemet, (Egypt)  Northeastern Africa a great part of her awareness of a spiritual awakening.  Mastering a 500RYT Kemetic/Hatha yoga teacher certification in Westmoreland, Jamaica with Yiser Ra Hotep shortly after returning and spending meditative, healing time off the shores of Darkar, Senegal with Ayy Kwei Armah.  

A student of Dr. Llaila Afrika Mayasa unfolded deeper wisdom, and desire for a peaceful path of enlightening. The alchemy of ecstasy,  sensual celebration, awakening, and channeling sexual energy with yoni egg gemstones, and yoni wands is an art Mayasa has been working to master for 23+ years under the tutelage of the amazing world-recognized Tantric Master Instructors. Studying sexual secrets, sharing information, and providing women with physical and mental tools to awaken and control Kundalini's power is her passion.  Hosting yearly holistic retreats to Jamaica and Tanzania East Afrika while discovering the power of essential oils from beginning to end and now a doTerra Independent Essential Oil Consultant.  Unable to get enough, she is also, but not limited to a Certified Thai massage therapist, Certified American Drugless Practitioner, Herbalist, Certified Birth  Worker (Doula), Advanced Midwifery training, Kangen Alkaline Water Device Distributor, mother, friend, lover, sister, certified firearms and women's safety instructor, Bellydance instructor, Certified Mediator and certified holistic health practitioner, a  graduate of the world's largest nutritional school “Institute of Integrative Nutrition”; Her passion to help brown and black women and girls break through barriers is constantly seen in her commitment to her two, now adult, daughters, masculine energy in men, clients, local women in shelters, nursing homes, remote villages, schools, community, associations, friends, family and any woman who values their happiness & health.  She won’t find your passion or healing for you but she’ll provide you with tools, resources, and services that help you ask the right questions to build an effective plan for yourself.

Teaching, volunteering, and organizing holistic retreats has her traveling to more than 15 countries ensuring the emphasis is on health and healing the physical, psychological, social, economic, and cultural factors related to health. Her shy and humbling personality did not hinder her from a Fox 5 Morning News "Belly dancing for Health" segment with Holly Morrison. A live TV interview and cooking segment, healthy food prep on FPA channel 10, interviewed on WBLR, WTOP, and WHUR Howard Univ. Radio and featured in several magazines "High Times" performance DVD including a belly dance instructional DVD titled "Moor Hips" and former radio host on Harambee Radio & TV, Mayasa believes positive informative media reports can greatly impact healthy behavior globally. Mayasa contends she will always be a student because life is all about learning and growing.

Mayasa supported me through the birth of my healthy baby boy. She was so giving, and full of information.  She offered encouraging words and awesome pointers when I felt my husband was really afraid of having a natural birth.  I'll always love and respect this woman, she never imposed her ideals and really allowed me to be better informed of my options.
