“When you give your body what it needs, which is not only good food and nutrition but a healthy mindset, a way of thinking and being in the world that allows you to protect and shield yourself from the harm that is visited upon you, that’s when you can create optimal health and well-being,”
– Dr. Elaine Ferguson
Welcome to Our Rise & Thrive™ Referral Partner Program!
We’re excited and honored to welcome and invite you to participate in a one-of-a-kind and important opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people of African ancestry in the U.S. and across the globe!
We invite you to join and help us share our sacred service, an empowering and powerful healing program with your circle that will make a unique and lasting difference in the lives of your family, friends, and members of your extended family.
Your efforts will help them heal racism’s invisible wounds in ways they never imagined was possible.
I believe it’s not by accident or chance that you are reading these words. I believe and feel in my heart, this is a destined and sacred moment in your life.
Our Shared Pain
For 401 years, people of African ancestry in the “new world,” have endured; and the most brutal and dehumanizing form of enslavement and oppression ever visited upon humanity have lived and suffered. We live and struggle in silence with the constant and unavoidable exposure to racism and the deep emotional wounds it has visited upon us, in addition to our legacy of inherited ancestral wounds. There is no hiding place.
This year has been an extremely challenging one for our people–an unprecedented and historic one of pain, hope, and opportunity.
COVID-19 is devastating our communities, both in terms of the higher rates of infection and death as well as the economic destruction it’s also disproportionately visited upon us, while hate-filled racists of all stripes continue to murder us with impunity– including doctors and nurses, who have refused to provide or give black patients proper care and have willfully allowed black patients to die.
We are in deep pain. We live with overwhelming and unyielding anguish. We are tired. We are exhausted. We are traumatized and fatigued, while the collateral and the unending pandemic of racism, including targeted police violence-related deaths continue to raise it’s ugly head, with no end in sight.
We feel impotent to stop the callous murders of our brothers and sisters, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others–names we should never know. Every time we watch the filming of a black person’s murder, especially George Floyd’s we feel deeper trauma and unending grief.
Michelle Obama Speaks the Truth
Our former First Lady, Michelle Obama recently shared her struggles and pain during this moment, including her feelings of low-grade depression.
“I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression,” she said. “Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.”
Mrs. Obama revealed her sleep has been affected and has been waking up in the middle of the night “‘cause I’m worrying about something, or there’s a heaviness”.
“I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself, and sometimes… there has been a week or so where I had to surrender to that, and not be so hard on myself,” she said.
“I have to say, that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to, yet another, story of a Black man or a Black person somehow being dehumanized, or hurt or killed, or, falsely accused of something, it is exhausting. And, and it, it has led to a weight, that I haven’t felt in my life, in, in a while,” she said.
Her words speak to the truth of our ocean of collective pain.
Our pain is overflowing. There’s little if any more room in our hearts to hold more grief and pain, that visit us with the murders, unbridled police brutality, unavoidable and unyielding racism, all recently exacerbated by the politics of in-your-face hate.
Yes, millions of our people have taken to the streets, protested and declared and emphatically affirmed, “Enough is enough!” Our pain remains unbroken.
And while the unique outpouring in the wake of these murders and protests, as hundreds of millions of people of goodwill in the U.S. and across the globe stand with us, our demands ring hollow within our hearts, as we fail to confront and ignore the depth and breadth of our pain and ancestral wounds-the unavoidable grief, trauma, distress, and overwhelm that we live with day in and day out.
They are unavoidable and undeniable, as Mrs. Obama so eloquently described, and requires our full attention.
Healing our pain matters now more than ever! Yes, we continue to survive the racism visited upon us, but at great cost to our health and well-being. Racism is the leading cause of African American deaths and disease. It robs us of so much, our cultural and historic identity, the truth of our being, and infiltrated our mind with the poisonous lies that have supplanted them.
We are in deep pain. There is no hiding place. For over 401 years we’ve inhabited a world of unbridled hate and oppression. Somehow, someway we’ve miraculously survived, the unspeakable atrocities visited upon humanity. There’s no hiding place from the unending terror, physical and mental assault.
We know it, we don’t talk about it. We grin and bear it and suffer in silence.
The energy of transformation is upon us, and a gateway for global healing beckons to set us free. It’s not enough to end externalized racism, we must dismantle and heal the internal structures that were traumatically imposed and sustained within.
OUR SACRED HEALING PROGRAM OVERVIEW & RESULTS
In the tradition of ancient, holistic African healing, we will provide our participants with the necessary ingredients to experience relief and their first steps of a pathway to heal their grief, and continuous suffering caused by racism & oppression.
We are wholeheartedly and passionately committed to helping them heal and end their individual and collective suffering in practical and meaningful and lasting ways.
Our passionate mission is to inspire and empower the creation of optimal health and well-being, led to the development of a program designed to help people of African descent around the world 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 inspired programs are designed to address the particular needs and unavoidable challenges African Americans face in their daily lives–racism, discrimination, hostility, intolerance, prejudice, and rejection, to name a few that have a harmful and toxic impact on their health and well-being, quality of life, and lifespan.
All programs and services are based on a proven, comprehensive, holistic mind/body and spiritual reserves. Our participants learn how to awaken and gain access to their inner healing reservoir that is the source of their health, well-being, and healing capacity.
Our unique uplifting programs are designed to inform, inspire and empower African Americans living with the inescapable pain, suffering, and harmful health impact and other results of acute and chronic racism, and all expressions of hate intolerance to heal and transform their health and well-being.
Our participants first and foremost discover the truth about their magnificent mind, amazing body and indomitable spirit, and the truth about racism–how it damages our physical health and psychological well-being. It is the leading risk factor for the development of chronic diseases including anxiety, depression, PTSD, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, and many more.
Our members more effectively protect, heal and shield their mind, body, and spirit from racist assault and the seemingly unavoidable internal harm in order that they may interrupt their automatic knee-jerk distressed reactions and instead respond, due to their unfolding access to their inner emotional and spiritual reserves, i.e., that will allow them the ability to be the calm in the midst of any racist storm.
They will also have greater access to their enduring strength and indomitable spirit. They will learn how to more fully express their true health potential by living in harmony with their entire being. And more fully experience emotional resilience, enhanced well-being, spiritual revitalization, and improved physical health.

Healing Racism’s Hidden Wounds NOW
We simply can’t continue to do what we’ve done before. Our wounds demand relief. This historic moment insists we must do more.
As we continue to dare to dream of living in a world where we can breathe freely, and live in the fullness of the beloved beings that we are, we must find a way to heal our wounds, in order to more perfectly fulfill our vision and destiny.
The urgency of this moment prompted us to create a series of powerful online healing webinars to address and provide relief and address the issues with which African Americans are grappling.
In alignment with our mission is to help our people relieve their wounds, to transform their pain, provide an effective, meaningful and lasting approach, i.e., a way to be in the world that protects, heals, and shields from harm.

The Next Healing Steps
“The physical and psychological damage caused by racism can be interrupted or healed when the body and mind are given the resources needed to create an optimal internal environment.”
-Dr. Elaine Ferguson
While Rise & Thrive Live’s Sacred Healing Circle Series addressed this particular moment, there is a much larger array of issues to be addressed and healed…i.e., the bigger picture requires us to acknowledge that for over 401 years African Americans are living and struggling far too often in silence with deep emotional wounds caused by chronic exposure to racism’s emotional and physical poisons.
We wholeheartedly and passionately seek to help them end and heal the severe anxiety and distress that plagues too many African Americans, with known deleterious impact on their emotional and physical health, including an increased risk of anxiety, depression, PTSD, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, and many more preventable chronic diseases.
Therefore, our Rise & Thrive Live! healing series will be followed by an opportunity to join our annual group coaching, an ongoing engagement opportunity:
Your circle will also have the opportunity to join Rise & Thrive: Healing Hate’s Hidden Wounds, our 12-month membership program.
It is a comprehensive healing and well-being program, including an inspired space and place to launch our individual and collective healing journey.
We lay the foundation for long-term health enhancement and well-being using a proven path to define obstacles and engage effective strategies, a supportive environment and community to help them heal, and more effectively exist in a hostile environment that threatens their worth, identity and existence.
It is an in-depth, revolutionary and unprecedented comprehensive health and well-being program designed to address the particular needs and challenges African Americans face in their lives, workplace-discrimination, hostility, intolerance, and rejection, that have a harmful and toxic impact on their health and well-being, quality of life, and lifespan.
The program will provide participants with the most powerful resources available to heal and transform their health and well-being–the vital health-promoting information, tools, and techniques needed to unleash the remarkable, inborn healing capacity that resides within.
You will discover:
The truth about your ancestral and personal resilience
How to tap into your profound inherited legacy of survival
The truth about your body’s remarkable healing capacity
How to unleash the power within to overcome racism
The critical role emotional health and well-being play in our physical health
The truth about the harm internalizing discrimination and racism has on physical health and emotional well-being
How to relieve your mind of the harm inflicted by racism and create emotional resilience and hardiness
Each stage is a time-tested guide that eliminates uncertainty and confusion out of a preventive or healing journey.
How and why creating vibrant health revolves around making a profound transformation of your emotional, physical, and spiritual health and well-being.

Our Program Creator
Elaine R. Ferguson, MD is an Ivy-League trained holistic physician, international best-selling author, and PBS program host. For over three decades, throughout her groundbreaking career, she’s helped thousands of people living with chronic illnesses heal by awakening and activating their true health potential. By using her clinically proven unique system based on ancient wisdom and breakthrough research to engage their amazing bodies, magnificent minds, and indomitable spirits.
A particularly vicious and unrelenting racist workplace attack for three years threatened her health and career and prompted her to engage her proven program. The profound relief and life-changing healing both physical and emotional included a spiritual realization that’s guided and allowed Dr. Ferguson to fulfill a long-standing passionate desire to help relieve our people’s suffering at the hands of racism’s hidden and debilitating impact.
Now, her primary focus is to help people of African descent around the world 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 enduring self-love, and enhance their health, well-being, and quality of life.
Her clients are endowed and empowered to embody our ancestors’ strength, endurance and resilience-those who dared to survive 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.
Are you ready to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those you hold most dear? They’ve waited all of their lives for healing and relief. And you are holding the keys to their psychological and spiritual liberation.
