Promoting education to improve lives
My name is Kwame Adapa. I am an educator and spiritualist with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics, and a PhD in Education. I am highly interested in the cultural, intellectual and spiritual development of the individual. As a world traveler, I have traveled to and interacted with peoples and cultures in close to 40 countries.
I have been an active and avid spiritualist for the past 18 years, integrating spiritual pursuits and practices into my daily life. Among the experiences that have defined my spiritual identity today, I attended the Gateway, Lifeline, Exploration 27 and Starlines programs at The Monroe Institute in Virginia. I then took the Consciousness Development Program and subsequently enrolled in advanced courses (Advanced I and Advanced II) at the International Academy of Consciousness in New York City. These courses led me to work extensively on out of body projection practices, eventually achieving my first conscious out of body projection in 2005 after trying for over 2 years. I tell that experience in my book Out of Body into Life under the section Out at Last!
Having a strong interest in indigenous knowledge and spirituality, I have also sought to learn from native elders around the world. Among these, I have been a guest of the late South African (Zulu) high shaman and sanusi Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa, as as well as Native American elder and warrior Robert Morning Sky, both of whom I frequently quote and refer to in my books and writings.
In the realm of internal alchemy, I have practiced energy exercises such as qigong for 17 years, and internal alchemy practices for 13 years. For the latter, I studied with the late Buddhist Master Jiang Feng and his students, and have also studied on a number of occasions with Daoist master Wang LiPing. As a result of these and other experiences, my daily meditation practices center strongly round aspects of internal alchemy.
As a human being, I continue to expand my cultural, intellectual and spiritual growth and engagement through my own studies and research, through my writing and through interactions with other individuals who seek to know more about the reality we live in. I love to engage with people of different backgrounds and to learn and share community.
This website, and theakan.com, are part of the service I am rendering to humanity. Part of my mission in this life is to study and learn aspects of consciousness and spirituality, and then share what I learn with others. As such, this website is an effort aimed at bringing improvement into others’ lives by raising awareness and promoting knowledge and spirituality through education.
I invite you to enjoy, participate in and help grow the Baridu community. Looking forward to seeing you on the inside!
