Neith Sankofa is the creator, CEO and principle facilitator of The Light Warrior SiStar Hood @WriteDanceAdventure. She is an author, dancer, consultant and coach in the areas of ritual, self-healing, and embodiment.
She has a B.A. and M.A. in Religious Studies (minor in Sociology and concentrations in ethics and embodiment) both from Georgia State University. She is a Metaphysical Practitioner, and has studied several forms of African, ancient and indigenous wisdom through dance apprenticeships and holistic mentorships.
Neith has been a presenter at the American Academy of Religion Annual Conference, The International Blacks Arts Movement Conference, and is the author of several publications on the use of dance/movement and embodiment practices in academia.
Neith’s dance credits range from performing in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 1996 Olympic Games, to being a featured artist at the 7th International Day of Peace. She has performed her “dance peaces” throughout the United States and abroad, using dance advocacy to bring awareness, light, and love to the needed spaces in our collective consciousness.
Her dance/movement workshops and fusion coaching style are designed to invite intentional connection between the spirit of your divine path, the conscious mind, and the wisdom of the body. They combine performance art, clarifying writing exercises, and dance/movement from various traditions.
She incorporates academic research in womanism and the principles of her Sankofa Healing modality (going back to retrieve aspects of one’s heritage for communal healing) in her coaching and workshops. Her presentation style can be described as intentional, intuitive and light-hearted. She affirms in her pointings that we are all part of the Universal One creative force, and that force created Light Warrior Women of the Diaspora to shine their gifts and talents UNAPOLOGETICALLY into the world.
Neith looks forward to assisting you through an individual coaching, workshop and/or professional consultation package as you create the path to your goals and desires.
