"you have opened a sacred portal FoR healing... "

‘You are truly sent from heaven. I have been haunted by the silence from our community on the subject of racism in the form of a real action plan for healing.
“Someone finally, you have opened a sacred portal for healing over 400 years of pain and shame of carrying the invisible wounds of hatred. Also, thank you for deliberately changing the language of racism.”

Does This Sound Like You?


You’re a successful and competent professional. While at work you have felt targeted, rejected, dehumanized, isolated, and a host of other painful emotions. You’ve tried EVERYTHING to fit but you feel little, if any relief.


You used to waking up in the morning, dreading going to work. The pandemic’s unexpected blessing has allowed you to avoid the daily incidents that made your life so difficult. And you’ve found great relief from your exposure to everyday racism, in the sanctity of your home.


You know you’re health is deteriorating because of your job, but don’t know what to do.  You’ve experience a variety of symptoms, racing thoughts, rapid heart beats, difficulty sleeping, indigestion, muscle aches and pains, headaches, and anxiety to name a few,  because of your ongoing stress.


You want meaningful and lasting relief, freedom from the hateful harm.  You know in your heart there’s a better way.  And you’re ready to find it!

"We Bear Great Pain in Silence!"

You’re Not Fully Aware of the FACT that YOUR Health Is IN GRAVE DAnger Because...

Racism is the true silent killer and leading cause of premature death among African Americans! According to government data, each and every day 200 African Americans die prematurely!

You understandably believe you have no choice, because the situation is in control, and your painful reaction to it is inevitable.

You also feel you are alone, and that you must continue to grin and bear racism in silence. Racism feels overwhelming and unavoidable.  And you must continue to be exposed to this because you rely on the income your job provides.

You believe you have to grin and bear it…until racism comes to an end.

MEet Rise & Thrive's Creator

I'm Dr. Elaine Ferguson. I am passionately committed to helping you heal the harm racism has visited upon you. If you're tired of hurting and want real relief, I am here to help YOU achieve your goal!

Like you, I’ve experienced racism my entire life, in various forms and levels of intensity.  However, I was exposed to its full wrath when I finally encountered its most toxic and vicious forms during my medical education; it continued and expanded during my post-graduate training (residency); and has continued throughout my professional career. 

I’ve treated and counseled hundreds of African American patients, regarding their daily encounters of racism in the workplace, the vast majority were successful professionals making their way in corporate America, businesses and governmental agencies.

For many years, I thought of our responses as primarily stress related, which they are (and have come to realize, they are also much more). My patients benefited from the holistic stress reduction techniques and counseling I provided.  While my career as a pioneering holistic medicine physician, author, consultant, and physician executive flourished, one experience changed the course of my life.

A few years ago, an extremely vicious and unrelenting racist professional attack for three years threatened my health as well as my career and prompted me to use my healing program.  My profound relief and life-changing healing both physical and emotional, included a spiritual realization that’s guided and allowed me to fulfill a long-standing passionate desire to help relieve my people’s suffering at the hands of racism’s hidden and debilitating impact.

Now, I help our people around the world (our members are located in the US, UK, Canada, the Caribbean and Europe) heal and stop racism’s invisible wounds, the unavoidable, heart-wrenching anguish, seething rage, and ongoing trauma; overcome the intrusive impact caused by exposure to daily insults, verbal assaults, aggression, and hate; transform self-loathing and rejection into lasting self-love, and enhance their health, well-being and quality of life.

Our members are endowed and empowered, to embody the strength of our ancestors who survived and refused to die to effectively and efficiently triumph over racism’s insidious, internalized physiological violence, and life-endangering harm that is the leading cause of chronic physical disease, mental illness, and premature death.

This life-changing healing program was born the moment I realized I could help you and other professionals as I had finally discovered how to successfully heal my mind, body and spirit of racism’s toxic harm.

Discover 5 Life-Changing Holistic Principles & Set Your Health Free!

The principles I’ve used to help thousands of patients and clients awaken their true health potential are now available to you to heal the health endangering harm caused by your experiences of racism.

Rev. Philippe Matthews

"She has shown me ...that I/we don't have to continue suffering this burden."

“Goddess Dr. Elaine Ferguson is a force of nature! Her truth about medicine, epigenetics, and superhealing is amazing! She has in-depth knowledge about how and why Africans/African Americans can heal themselves from the domestic terror of racism. Dr. Ferguson’s brilliant mind and loving spirit is needed by our people suffocating under the weight of racism. She is my personal health advisor and has personally shown me that I/we don’t have to continue suffering this burden. We deserve to set ourselves free.”


"Dr. Ferguson's program has been a gift worth sharing."

“For over 30 years I worked in industry-leading companies, often one of a handful of African American managers, or the only African American senior manager in the board room.  I developed a numbness from suppressing my disdain with the many micro-aggressions witnessed and experienced during that time.

I’ve spent the last nine months in Dr. Ferguson’s healing circle and over time I have deeply reconnected with my spirit.  Others have noticed I am more calm under stress, patient with my family, friends, and business associates, and have a happy energy. Dr. Ferguson’s program has been a gift worth sharing.”


Brian Lacey

James M. CHilds, Jr. Esq

"I DIdn't know what I needed to heal until you showed us The Way."

“I didn’t know what was missing in my life until I joined the circle.  I didn’t know what needed to heal until you showed us the way.”

"I am immensely grateful!"

“The healing circles were quite an amazing experience and I am looking forward to continuing with them. 

“I want to thank you for graciously accepting the responsibility that has been delegated to you by the ancestors, for letting the divine speak through you and for relaying their message to us.   I now have a more expanded and comforting understanding of the concept ‘privilege vs opportunity’.
“Despite all that is being done to us by the greater society, we keep rising. We do not hate anybody, we do not envy anybody and we do not even want to retaliate against anyone. No matter what, we keep our heads high and we keep moving forward under the guidance of the Supreme. How could we not be the privileged ones? Thank you for that lesson. I am immensely grateful!”

Samuel G

Olive Lewis

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

“Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am still smiling from our awesome connection yesterday. Thank you for your love and warmth. I can still feel the energy of our bonding and how each meeting our group are becoming stronger in our connections.

What l find so powerful, is that no matter who shares one of us will have a story that follows on from the next person. I get goose bumps just thinking of it and how strong the healing  circle is becoming.”

"This Was one of my best Decisions..."

“I first came across Dr Elaine watching the Hidden Truth shows that Andrew Muhammad hosts. She had such a calming and regal way about her and spoke straight to my heart. Then the opportunity to join a healing circle came. I did deliberate about it as I didn’t really feel I had anything to heal with when it came to racism. However I was intrigued enough and joined. 

“This was one of my best decisions as I came as a very apprehensive and narrow minded person but now my mind has been opened up more to the possibilities. 
“I realized I was not alone in my experiences and the healing circles became such an important fixture in my months that I made sure that I did not miss any and I spoke about it. I have learnt to be nicer to loved ones who I want to do better. Showering them with love. 
“In these healing circles Dr Elaine provides the perfect platform for all of us to be comfortable to speak without judgement and in fact most of us have helped each other. One other member of the circle said what I said to her really helped and this really touched me. Things have happened also where as I now stand on my own 2 feet more in my profession and surrounded myself more with people I resonate with as to opposes what the company might want. 
“I’m living in my truth a lot more and I will go after my dreams more as I’m a lot more confident. Thanks Dr Elaine and I recommend anyone going on one of her courses. She is like a spiritual guide. I will always appreciate communicating to me what my grandma was thinking of me. This really has put me at ease and reduced the heartache I suffered growing up and in my grandma’s transformation.

IMPORTANT Questions & Meaningful Answers

As you will learn during our training African American professionals are disproportionately impacted by their daily exposure to workplace discrimination, and are sicker and die even younger in comparison to our broader community. 

We do have programs for our entire African American community.

The Inner Circle is an  ongoing 12 month year program. 

The healing and relief you seek occurs in stages.  The vast majority of our members begin to feel relief as soon as they make the decision to join.  They intuitively feel relief is on the way.  During the first weeks of their journey, our members have found in particular that our safe and sacred healing circles provide a profound and unexpected level of healing and relief. 

This is a healing journey, and we do our very best to give you the exceptional resources that will give you the greatest opportunity to achieve your specific healing goals.

Your fear is understandable, and it keeps you in harms way.  Because its been so painful for you, as it is with all of us, you will continue to suffer and your health and well-being will be harmed. 

If you dare to consider the truth, that you are capable and have the inner resources to overcome anything life brings you, including the pain and suffering your experiences of racism have visited upon you, your healing journey has already begun. 

One of the critical keys to overcoming our fears is  considering our pain from a broader context. Think about your personal and our collective ancestors, and what they survived in order for us to be here today. Their brilliant survival, is our beacon and will help you to transcend your fears.

Ultimately, everything happens at the right time.  Trust your inner voice will guide you to do what’s right for you at the right time.

No worries.  Before you make any decision,  we recommend completing the training first, and then you can make a decision.  The fact that you want to do it is the most important aspect of your dilemma.  Sometimes, our unconscious fears attempt to protecting us, by delaying our healing.  

Ultimately, everything happens at the right time.  Trust your inner voice will guide you to do what’s right for you at the right time.

Because I have healed and witnessed the healing of many women and men, who were courageous and brave to take hold of this life-changing opportunity.

Upon receipt of your application, we will send additional preparatory information to you.  Most importantly, it is vital to approach your training and healing opportunity with an open mind.

That’s entirely up to you and the effort that you make.  Remember, you are taking on an epic, unprecedented experience.  This is by no means a fast action, get it done as quickly as posssible experience.  While we understand and sympathize with your desired relief.

We do have rapid relief resources, that are a part of your life-changing experience, but it is only one component.  We thoughtfully created a program to give you your best opportunity not only to heal the hidden wounds racism has visited upon you, that’s your first step. The second phase of your journey is the understanding that healing your wounds will give you the space and grace to not only improve your health and well-being, and prevent the compounded harm, but to also fulfill your life purpose and more easily achieve your important goals.

Because decades of medical research has determined this unfortunate fact, regarding premature death and the increased incidence of chronic health conditions.  While there are many other factors, that impact our health, he data has established a clear and undeniable link to our everyday exposures to racism and an increased incidence of chronic conditions, and a shortened life span, especially among African American professionals.

That’s a beautiful sentiment and your loving concern is commendable.  However, if they’re not interested or ready to join you in this exploration, the most loving thing you can do is to begin your healing journey, and become an example and beacon of possibility as your healing unfolds before them.  They will see the difference in you and your healing may lead to them to become more open and interested.

We recognize you are a busy professional, and designed this program to maximize your time and healing.  You will have weekly 60-90 minute calls; and should spend 30-60 minutes a day (and you can break  it in 15 minute increments) to do your lessons and engage the provided healing resources and techniques.
