“We are lagging far behind in science, engineering, technology, and math,” expresses Weeks. “Our children must become leaders in science, finance, and technology.”

First published in 2019, Meditations Across The King’s River stood as a vibrant celebration of African culture, spirituality, history, and cuisine, attracting readers worldwide. The second edition of the book delves even deeper into Weeks’ extraordinary life experiences, featuring updated chapters on ancestral guidance, encounters with activists in Bermuda, his journey into trading and beekeeping, and the unexpected revelation of a familial tie to the late legendary actress Cicely Tyson.

Week’s journey into African healing traditions began in 2002 during a crisis involving his son’s involvement with gangs in East Oakland. The father-son duo later traveled to Nigeria, where Yoruba elders guided and healed them. Today, they share their story to inspire and heal others, emphasizing the importance of following one’s purpose.

The transformative journey within the pages of Meditations Across The King’s River urges readers to open themselves to ancestral spirit guides, embrace their gifts, and discover their unique purpose on earth. Weeks draws inspiration from the late African shaman Malidoma Some, the late poet/activist Audrey Lourde, renowned Bermudian costume designer Shiona Turini, and Ghana-based entrepreneur Maya King. A significant portion of the proceeds from book sales will support The Across The King’s River Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit founded by James Weeks. The Foundation aims to bridge gaps in STEM education and financial literacy within African-American communities while also preserving and promoting African spiritual and cultural traditions. “We must also support our storytellers and traditional healers,” states Weeks.

Weeks is collaborating with Joel Mcphee, a financial services executive, and with Liana Nanang, CEO of Unstoried, a Bermuda-based multi-media company, who applauds the mission, stating, “Our story has been told to us, rather than by us. Our mission is to disrupt the way films and books about us are made and marketed.”
