Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’? If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?
The journey of The Cultured Scholar began in 2017 in Goshen, NY. Felicia S. C. Gooden leveraged her web design and digital communications expertise to support online businesses with their digital marketing campaigns. She provided web design and copywriting services, and after obtaining her degrees in Government and International Relations, she entered the world of politics, government marketing, and intelligence analysis. Felicia embarked on a courageous mission of world change through communications consulting, strategic planning, and risk analysis and continues to lead the charge today.
As a result of her efforts, we’ve seen numerous clients over the years, from yoga teachers and pre-schools to international humanitarian NGOs and tech companies. We’ve learned that there are people and organizations in the world who want to do good and make a difference, but most are grossly misguided on how to achieve those ends. The narratives that drive the collective consciousness in these times are of particular concern. Indulgent media and influencer culture, racial and political extremism, perverted spiritual teachings in the mindfulness movement, and unsustainable leadership expectations create energetic blocks at the individual and collective levels of conscious development. Thus, leaders struggle to lead, and society struggles to thrive.
Fully conscious of the dangers these narratives and mindsets pose, we cultivate a body of work that places the integrity of the soul and the purity of the spirit at the core of all we do. We lead with integrity and work with an impeccable ethical and moral code. We lead with cultural intelligence and empathy, ensuring that we deliver on our clients’ needs as well as public desires.
Felicia’s walk as an initiate and High Priestess, practicing Judeo-Christian Mysticism and studying the teachings of Egyptian mystery schools, among others, lays the foundation for The Cultured Scholar’s metaphysical attunement with a divine authority. Her training with Liberty University gave her a spiritual lens into the sacred ministry of public service and good governance, refined by a mastered skillset in geopolitical policy and risk analysis.
The Cultured Scholar Strategic Communications, LLC serves as a royal priesthood dedicated to guiding the public and private sectors in attuning to the divine spark, focusing on collaboration, synthesizing interests, and building a more secure and sustainable world. We are healers of systems and collectives. We diagnose and treat the collective consciousness of humanity as expressed in various modes of communication. We are the change we have been waiting for.
Now, we’re waiting on you.
