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. Through our ancestral voices, we are here to support ALL of our communities thrive for the betterment of the collective.
Many of our courses and online programs are intended to support ALL peoples. Our Wisdom Keepers present all courses from a conscious cultural lens.
Courses and programs that are BI & Poc exclusive, will be labeled as such. All other courses are for anyone who aligns.
We are in an expansive phase of our growth as we seek out Wisdom Keepers to offer courses in our expanding subject areas.

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.

My name is Chonteau and I am the Founder of Soul Care University. After retiring from a rewarding career as a Social Worker, I opened up a sacred healing practice. After several years of providing Spiritual Life Coaching and Traditional healings, I moved to the next phase of my life's mission which was to open a healing and empowerment center.
