About Wiah

Wiah is a Ghedee Master, philosopher, counselor, teacher and facilitator with over 40 years of experience. He began his teachings in West Africa and has dedicated his practice to teaching Ghedee philosophy and assisting those in need of growth/remembrance. Wiah began work as a Ghede here in the United States in 1992. In 2004, he focused his years of experience on the creation of The Ghedee Center a place of learning, healing, guidance, awareness, and balance.

Born to an American mother and a Liberian father, Wiah grew up on the West Coast of Africa in Monrovia, Liberia. He was inducted as a member of the Ghedee Society at birth. The main objective of this society is to understand the human being—emotionally, mentally, and physically— from the Universal perspective as pure energy, and, based on that understanding, alleviate human suffering using Ghedee philosophy and its principles. At the age of nine, Wiah was trained and practiced in Ghedee philosophy, and has been practicing the rites and traditions of Ghedee Society ever since. Wiah is a direct descendant and namesake of the first "Wiah", a warrior who began the Saapo ethnic group. This group is one of 18 ethnic groups that occupy Liberia today. Wiah was assigned this name by the highest ranking teacher (Zoe) in the Ghedee Society. She believed he would be the next warrior/leader of the group.

Wiah relocated to California in 1987, during the Liberian civil war. He finished his postsecondary education at the University of California at Davis. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Design. Alongside his studies at Davis, Wiah also studied a variety of world religions, philosophies and therapies to expand his perspective on the human psyche. Some of these religions include Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and Sufism. Some therapies and philosophies include Bio-Emotional Synthesis, Breath Therapy, Life Force Integration, CBT - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy just to name a few . Wiah is a master of over 360 Ghedee disciplines. Wiah has integrated all of his knowledge, skills and experience into his work at The Ghedee Center. His work highlights the understanding of the unity of all things in balance, which is an integral part of the Ghedee practice.

Wiah currently lives in Oakland, California and works in Alameda, California at the Ghedee Centre. He works to counsel, guide, teach, nurture and facilitate all who come in contact with The Ghedee Center. Wiah's intention is that all human beings break their cycle of mental, emotional, and physical suffering and awaken to the truth of their primordial existence. This can only be accomplished through the removal of anything that countermands the natural state of this energetic existence of learning, healing, guidance, awareness, and balance.
