“Your sense of deep sacredness and respect for those who have gone before us was inspiring and I thank you from my heart for your words of love.

You delivered from the heart and I was very moved. Personally, I am experiencing a very difficult time and I am so grateful to have the loving support of my ancestors and your beautiful delivery of sacred truths was very healing. Deepest gratitude once again for the work you are doing which is so crucial and so powerful.” – J.W.

She is a strong advocate for challenging mental health concepts in America. Her story and journey is featured in the documentary, CrazyWise.

“My session with Gogo Ekhaya was nothing ordinary, it was mysterious and yet powerful. Her ability to channel my ancestors, family members, and soul mate relationships and those things that connect directly with the root chakra, Gogo activated an ability that was dormant and that I was afraid to open but she walked with me into a place that was foreign to me and it changed my life. She was able to give me pieces to puzzles that enabled me to cut myself off from the fear of success through this activation. After my session was over the next night I began to dream visions of my maternal and paternal ancestors. Amazing shifts have occurred in my life and a lot has to do with this beautiful soul helping me connect back to my ancestors to receive my spiritual inheritance!….” J.L.
