Reclaiming Your Inner-Life, Light and Sovereign Self

“Self-Rule is a useful tool in regaining the awareness of one’s core being and authentic self. Once we allow that part of us to shine, despite world views and societal pressure, we reclaim our throne and self-sovereignty. It is time to do the work. The world is waiting.”
~Tamika N. Harris, Educator
“I’ve known Oronde for over 15 years and he never ceases to amaze me. In his first, of what I hope will be many more to come, self help books–Self Rule proves to be an educational yet thought provoking self help tool, as it is as educational as it is enlightening. Even if you have never picked up a self help book before, Self-Rule is easy to follow, with clear definitions of concepts and relatable examples to drive the concepts home. It challenges us to be mindful, meditative, and motivated to reach our ‘best life’ which he refers to as the Sovereign Self. For an added bonus the soothing sounds of poetry will have you ‘clap-snapping’ as if you were at a poetry slam. As a mental health therapist and social worker, I highly recommend Self-Rule as a tool to be added to your toolkit for navigating change within yourself as well as with your clients.”
~Lakiesha Hampton, LMSW
“I am very proud and happy to see my good friend and brother of the martial
arts finally get to express his dream of getting his book published. As I
started reading the book It came to me I have lived this book first hand.
When I was going through the perils of post divorce Oronde used this teaching
with love and understand to keep me from falling over the edge and letting
the dark side push me to the unthinkable. So I know first hand how valuable
the teaching in these pages are and I know I was blessed to have this man
as a friend when I couldn’t find the light.”
