Play • 1 hr 32 min

Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan is a teacher of consciousness and human potential, a Holistic Chinese Medicine Doctor, author, speaker, coach, and mama of two Luminous Kids. Her journey began in 2003 after a series of meditation-induced mystical experiences that changed her perception of human possibilities forever. Since then, she has devoted her life to unlocking the secrets to our Human Potential. Her work weaves together ancient wisdom with the new science of consciousness, medicine, and spirituality. 

Dr. Edith's first book SuperWellness features a foreword by Wim Hof and offers a powerful distillation of her first 15 years of clinical experience. Her upcoming 2nd book "Luminous Kids, Luminous Education" explores humanity's transition into the new paradigm of awakened living - with a focus on children, education, parenthood, and family life. It draws inspiration from her personal journey of conscious conception, home birth, child-led self-directed education, homeschooling, unschooling, community building, and holistic family life. It aims to spark a new conversation about our evolution in consciousness as a human family.

Dr. Edith’s academic background includes a Doctoral Degree from Five Branches University in Endocrinology & Neuromuscular Medicine, a 4-year graduate degree from American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and a Bachelors with Magna Cum Laude in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University.

In 2021, Dr. Edith launched the Luminous Education Revolution program, supporting families in transitioning into the new paradigm of education,  homeschooling/unschooling, village building, and awakened parenthood. Through her writings, coaching, workshops and seminars, Dr. Edith helps thought-leaders and change makers become masters of their Energy and Life, so that they can lead and serve at the highest levels.

Having gone through a series of mystical experiences has helped our guest, Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan, as a writer, speaker, coach, transformational retreat creator, and mother. In this episode, we start with questioning “Who am I, Why Am I Here?” lead Dr. Edith to the new paradigm of Luminous Education, a huge leap of faith to break-free from programming to follow orders and instead to truly uncover what it takes for our kids to learn the skills to do life. Edith asks us who would we be if we weren’t so afraid of mistakes. She expands on the ways the status quo educational system is conditioning our children into helplessness through manipulation of rewards and punishment, shame and approval, a form of domestication to please. The good news: the industrial education model is crumbling, and we are entering a new paradigm in the culture of education. We explore the conversation Dr. Edith had with her son before conception and the wave of baby spirits coming to blanket the world in light. This interview is one of the best and most important interviews of our time reminding us to create a world worthy of our children. You do not want to miss this passionate, awe-inspiring conversation of what it takes to live a life that is fully lived.
