Sankofa means "Go Back and Fetch it".
We must look back to the past in order to understand how and why we have become who we are in the present. Thus, we are able to create and move into a better future.
Sankofa was born in December of 2001 along with the home birth of our fourth child. Throughout our daughter's gestation, I (Michelle) became more and more committed to the mission of teaching others about the beauty and awesome power of God's functionality through Nature as a source of healing and enrichment. When my daughter was born, I knew almost instantaneously that the time had come to accept my calling into the ministry of health. In January of 2002, I began our journey along that path less traveled. Sankofa Learning Center, Inc. was formed as a non profit entity to educate the community. Through the years Sankofa has become a family ministry and our scope has broadened to include the formation of Sankofa Healing and Enrichment, Inc. a Natural Health and Wellness Center. As time has passed, our commitment to our mission and guiding principles has become stronger and deeper than in the beginning.

Our Guiding Principles
We believe that the opportunity to assist you along your journey is a privilege and a blessing which will inevitably enrich our own lives. We strive at all times to uphold and live by the following principles:
All can benefit from some form of healing and enrichment
no matter how elevated or depressed our lives may seem.
We are all but mere vessels for the one true source of enrichment and healing, the Divine Healer – God.
We must love others as we love ourselves because we are stewards of God and “All is One.”
Everyone is an individual with a unique history and set of needs
which can not be adequately addressed without the use of personalized care.
Healing and enrichment are based upon faith, love, and action;
they can only take place through the concerted and persistent efforts of those who seek fulfillment.
