Hello Parents & Students!

Welcome to the upcoming fall session of The Sankofa Homeschool Collective!

I am Mama Wendi and I am excited to share my knowledge on the mind, body, and spirit aspect of nutrition with the students.

Why Wellness Matters!

According to recent research, Black people, regardless of class or income, are dying at a disproportionate rate than any other population in the U.S., mainly due to poor lifestyle choices, a lack of knowledge and finances. (Source)

The short-term effects of diets that lack basic nutrients, fruits and vegetables can result in decreased energy and focus and contribute to an unhealthy body weight and non-communicable diseases. The first problems associated with heart disease start in the early twenties. (Source)

Students’ levels of stress have been on the rise with about one third reporting to have difficulties functioning and almost half experiencing feelings of overwhelming anxiety (Novotney, 2014).

Highlights will include:

  • Discover the human body as the original 'technology.
  • The theory of bio-individuality in personal nutrition.
  • Tips to incorporate the natural cycles of the body to promote holistic (mind, body, and spirit) health.
  • Re:connect students to their wild side (instinct, intuition, and intelligence) and the dangers of sole reliance on AI (artificial intelligence).
  • Investigate marketing (i.e., non-GMO, organic) tactics in the supermarket.
  • Much more...

I am looking forward to meeting you in September!
