Our School ‘Brick and Mortar’

The Academy Kemetic Education & Wellness, Inc.  began offering in person Classes in 1999 in its ‘brick and mortar’ building space in Boston, MA. Its co-founders, Dr Nteri and Baba Heru Lester Nelson could see their vision manifesting of having a school where people could come and learn an African Centered Model of Education, a mission which teaches the rich history of African and African Diaspora people.

Certification Programs

Ka Ab Ba Building The Lighted Temple: Metaphysical Keys to the Tree o Life-

MerKaB: The Great Pyramid Is The Tree of Life: KaAbBa - are an African Centered Educational and Awakening Comsciousness Model for Psychological, Spiritual, Sociological, Character Development and Wellness, which is underpinned, by our African and Diaspora History and inclusive of African language, constructs and cosmology.

These programs teach the Application & practice of Ancient African Wisdom in so called ‘modern’ daily living. Its Research reveals that the people of the African Nile valley Civilization in ancient Kemet/Egypt had an elaborate Science for understanding Mind, Body, Soul - and well-defined practices for developing that which is both human and Divine within the constitution of man and woman. It imparts understanding of how our African Ancestors of the Nile Valley were Masters in: a) the Science of Mind, Body and Soul b) expressing divine qualities which they called the Neter or Neteru and c) detailing the anatomy of the Soul, its Journey, and how to fulfill ones life purpose.


This Model is based on the wisdom of the Kemites (later called the Egyptians) as recorded in, the Pyramid Texts, Prt m Hru The Book of Coming Forth By Day After Night, their Medu Neter language (later called Hieroglyphics by the Greeks) and books authored by Dr Nteri Nelson entitled: Ka Ab Ba Building The Lighted Temple: Metaphysical Keys Tree Life (2000) and MerKaBa:The Great Pyramid is The Tree of Life: KaAbBa Kemetic Technology For Remaking Ourselves As Beings Of Light (2011). 

The purpose of the Academy is to re-connect with the Afrikan origin of the Ancient Wisdom, ‘Our-Story’, in an unapologetic, undiluted, TRUTH seeking learning environment.  Since its beginning the Academy has been graduating class after class of Initiates in its Certification Programs through two decades.
