Author of the upcoming book: The Spirit of the Village: How to break the habit of living disconnected and experience the joy of consciously living a moreauthentic and connected life where you belong

Originally from Cameroon, Central Africa, Jacky Yenga grew up in Paris and now lives in Vancouver, BC. Her foundation for life was rooted in togetherness and collaboration, respect for the elders, for nature and the ancestors. Living a connected life was her only reality, until the age of 9. She experienced the trauma of disconnection when she was sent to the West to “live a better life”. Now she is an inspiring speaker and an enthusiastic ambassador for the wisdom of Africa and their message of togetherness, which she shares around the world in various forms, including as a singer, music and dance performer.

“I believe in contributing and making a real difference in the lives of the people I meet. I am here to help connect people to themselves and to each other. I picture a world where your life is filled with nourishing connections, a real sense of belonging, more authenticity and more humanity – because that’s the choice we make when we come from a place of deep inner wisdom. I believe in adding value and sharing with you that there’s a better, healthier and more compassionate way to live that takes care of everybody.”
