Referring to his book becoming a bestseller, author James Weeks said, “This is a huge win for African and Caribbean culture, spirituality and cuisine. When I received the news, I took the opportunity to announce the creation of my non-profit, The Across the King’s River Foundation, which promotes STEM education as well as African cultural and spiritual traditions. We need more scientists in our community; more engineers; more financial experts, more pilots, more doctors, more storytellers. And we fully intend to create them.”

Regarding choosing Bermuda as the first stop in his book tour, Mr Weeks shared, “Bermuda has a special place in my heart. After my last trip here where I blessed Liana and Ajala in marriage, a close friend and client remarked ‘Bermuda has changed you.’ I have been touched deeply by every person that I’ve met on my previous trips to the island. I feel as though I have an entire Bermudian family, even though I’m from St Croix and live in California! It is why Bermuda and my experiences with Bermudians feature so prominently in the updated edition of my book – I had to honour the island’s impact on me.”

Unstoried founder Liana Nanang said, “I first encountered James’s writings after Ajala left me a voice note reading a passage from the first edition of Meditations Across the King’s River about purpose. I was immediately grabbed by his words and had the great fortune of meeting James six weeks later when he came to Bermuda on vacation and The Griot invited locals to meet him. He has deeply touched our lives and tens of thousands of others. His kindness, depth, and generosity of spirit led Ajala and I to ask him to bless our marriage and preside over our wedding last June at Fort Hamilton. We can’t wait to share the gifts and healing that James has brought to us. His story is so relatable to Bermudian families, especially the issues he was encountering with his teenage son and gangs in Oakland that led him to find deeper meaning and healing. I truly believe his book and the words he shares on Saturday will benefit everyone.”

Unstoried Head of Story Development Ajala Omodele said, “Baba James has been instrumental in my spiritual development and I’m very thankful to access to his writings in the form of his latest book. He is able to make African spirituality, which has received a pretty negative reputation in the West, very accessible. He’s very approachable, charismatic and down to earth. For those who want to learn a bit more about how their African forebears understood spirituality and incorporated spirituality into their daily lives one need not look any further than Meditations Across the King’s River because he really brings ancient learning into the 21st century in ways that are non-threatening. He makes them very much accessible to those who, even if they’re Christian or Muslim have another faith practice, can still learn about African spirituality and not be put off by some anti-African propaganda that’s unfortunately been swirling about for many decades. Baba James’s work demystifies the spiritual practice of the Yoruba people of West Africa, Ifa, and how one can use it in the present day. It was the honour of my life to have him unite my wife and I in marriage.”

Alexa Lightbourne said, “I am thrilled to co-host James Weeks, a figure whose work embodies the rich tapestry of African and Caribbean culture, here in Bermuda. His journey, captured so eloquently in ‘Meditations Across the King’s River’, resonates deeply with our community’s spirit and shared heritage. This event is not just a book signing; it’s a celebration of the profound impact that storytelling, spirituality, and cultural exploration can have on individual lives and communities; especially but not limited to Bermuda. James has personally positively impacted my journey as a beacon of light on my spiritual journey and I am honoured and privileged to share him with my community. He embodies grace and the plurality of wisdom and knowledge through his guidance and captured eloquently in his book. This gathering of souls is a rich opportunity to connect with such an inspiring author and spiritual leader.”
