Dr. Mark Armstrong founded the Ahimki Center for Wholeness, Inc. in 1995. The name "Ahimki" is the combination of the Sanskrit word ahimsa (harmlessness toward life) and ki (universal life force); his mission statement says it all: "Ahimki" is a word which symbolizes our commitment to honor the sacredness of all life, and our respect for the vital force that flows through all living creatures. We seek to teach and heal, and thereby express our love for Mankind, the Earth, and the Infinite Universe." Dr. Mark believes that we must "grow our souls" and has been committed and driven to his own personal development and spiritual growth. His focus on education and training has resulted in meeting his goal in providing a “laser” approach to health and wellness.
Dr. Mark Armstrong’s education, training and studies include: a Bachelor of Science in Ergonomics/Health Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara; Advanced studies in acupuncture - California Acupuncture College - Santa Barbara, California; and much, much more. Please check his website for more information.
Dr. Mark has a strong belief in community holistic health education and has provided educational seminars to churches, colleges/universities, corporations, and small businesses. He has presented and lectured at three Whole Life Expos in Georgia. Through the Ahimki Institute of Holistic Theology, the facility provides a naturopathic education program. In honor of Mark Armstrong's service to his clients and community, a proclamation was issued by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners proclaiming November 16, 2002 as "Ahimki Center for Wholeness Day."
In January of 2012, Mark Armstrong successfully completed the Floating Monk Teacher Training Program, earning the title of Sifu Mark Armstrong. Sifu Mark was trained by Sifu Jeff who is an Enter the Gate Disciple of Grand Master Henry Poo Yee certified in Black Sash Sifu in Qigong and Kung Fu.

ARTIST CARLOS FAVORS
I'm from Atlanta Georgia born and raised. I've always loved art since I was at least five years old. I started out first with free hand drawing with a pencil. I have never had any formal training for art outside of school however my passion drove me to be as good as I can get learning on my own. As the Adolescent my friends and I would use spray paint to draw on anything that we could. We would draw a lame different characters just anything that we could imagine. We often talked about how we would go around the city displaying our work on anything we could spray on however we were so young. We only made it as far as our neighborhood.
Years later my son discovered someone spray painting in a different way on YouTube having some experience with the spray paint I took a big interest in this particular type of art. I actually fell in love with this particular type of Art as it was free-flowing and it's just a wonderful process. It's quite easy to draw any and everything that comes to my mind when using spray paint. I love the vibrant colors, the different combinations of colors in the abstract style, that one use with spray paint. I'm always learning new things different techniques and I plan to learn as much as I can to be the best I can be with this particular type of Art.
I also have learned about some of the history of this art. I also want to have a more in depth knowledge of the history and the culture of this art as it will be a part of my life forever. I also have been studying different aspects of my ancestors everyday life, which is the Kemetic way of life. One of my goals is to combine my art skills with different scenes of everyday life depicting my ancestors from over four thousand years ago.

Queen Yenn has always felt the “pull of the most high”. Daughter of a Baptist minister and teacher, religion and education has always been present in her life. She has proclaimed early on in life that she “felt a calling on her life”, but this calling seemed different from what she witnessed in the church. She felt like there had to be more to life than just working to avoid hell.
A student of Dr. Asa Hilliard III, prolific scholar, author, and teacher of Kemetic wisdom, she began to learn more about the history of her ancestors, including indigenous spiritual systems and ways of worship. This is where she found her truth.
Ultimately, understanding and accepting that all is GOD as principle, she excitedly dived into what she calls the “Universal Current” of abundance studying metaphysics, numerology, astrology, lunar cycles, and many other Universal Laws/truths.
Queen Yenn believes that we are all GODs having a human experience and we have been provided all that we need to allow that experience to be extraordinarily beautiful.

Greetings! I am The Priestess. My gifts are clairaudience, clairvoyance and telepathy. I was born into the craft; my gifts are passed through the maternal and paternal line. I have over 30 years’ experience reading Tarot, Talking Board, Empaca Shell and the Ancient Palo Deck. I have been featured on VH1 Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta and Bravos Southern Charm. My readings are extremely accurate and straight to the point. I never ask questions; all questions are answered as I give the reading.
I'm initiated in the following Orders: Palo Monte, Haitian Vodoun and the Esoteric Order of Mary Magdala and the Divine Mother. Ordained Interfaith, Esoteric and Psychic Minister through the Esoteric Theological Seminary. I relay information concerning spiritual direction, love, work, money, health, business, career path. As a Shaman I perform spiritual work to uncross, protect, bring prosperity, love and business success, bringing change and light.
My Modalities are:
Tarot: Tarot allows me to read the life as a story it will give information about the people, places and things around you that impact the life. It gives direction as to the best course of action for any situation.
Palo Monte Tarot: This is a deck of cards given to me by Spirit. I was given the design and the method in which the cards should be read. The Palo Monte Tarot will give the spiritual vibration around you. It will give information regarding the spiritual consequences of your actions, decisions and associations. It will tell me how this is helping or hurting your spiritual progress and whether the ancestors are pleased with you or displeased with you.
Talking Board: The Talking Board is used with a pendulum, the pendulum swings from letter to letter spelling out your answers for you. You can either ask your question or you can have the Board speak to you. This is a very rare and accurate method of divination. It also allows me to access the Akashic Records.
Empaca Shell: The Empaca Shell is a Palo method of divination. My Empaca Shell was specially designed for me using a large seashell with a mirror attached. This allows me to see the life as a movie screen or a video. Images of people, places, and objects are shown to me to give information about the life.
