We are a Folk Wisdom, Education, Healing and Empowerment Center. SCU’s main purpose is to Support, Educate and Empower (S.E.E.) our communities and individuals embrace  holistic and earth-centered living.  As we step more fully into our truth,  we are  reclaiming our indigenous values, wisdom and technologies from all systems, including our own minds, that are rooted in oppression. We are ready to deeply care for our Souls.  

We are striving to  highlight and amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous, and Folks of Color community  leaders, by curating a collective of  wisdom keepers that represent these communities.

Thinking about joining our community, A note from our founder Chonteau:

Greetings, Are you wondering if joining our online community is for you?  We have several communities so here are a few things to consider:

First, you do not have to be Black, Indigenous or a Person of Color to enjoy our offerings. There are offerings for all folks, and there are offerings for BI and PoC specifically. 

Joining our email community is about staying informed with what is going on so you can choose what courses, programs and products fit you best.  You will receive detailed information about what is coming and how you can be a part.  I also like to send  other inspiring content about what I am doing and what's on my mind. 

Connecting with our Soul Care U  Instagram will give you day to day thoughts and inspirations around our subject areas from a conscious cultural perspective. 

Connecting with my Chonteau McElvin Instagram will give you day to day insights and inspirations, as it relates to my journey as  a  conscious wisdom keeper, healer and holistic  practitioner. 

Make your choices and I look forward to connecting soon.
