Stay tuned for the virtual launch.

The first in-person 40 Days to Power Living program debuted in 2006 with a group of 100 people at Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York's historical Harlem. Invited by First Lady Patricia Butts to create a Lenten program focused on total well-being, Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy led the group in weekly workshops (including an interactive discussion, breathing techniques, meditation, healthy eating strategies, etc.) and supported their progress with a customized weekly email newsletter and the 40 Days to Power Living book which was fresh off the press. Since then, thousands have done the program in both faith-based and secular settings.

 In this accelerated program, learn how to:

  • Uncover your Purpose

  • Focus your Mind

  • Eat for Energy

  • Exercise Effectively

  • Distance Toxic People

  • Maximize Productivity

  • Create Financial Serenity

  • and so much more!

Now, for the first time, the program is being delivered for a global audience in a video-rich virtual format. It includes live weekly ZOOM sessions, a 40-day calendar with daily videos, a practice toolkit (i.e. videos of mind-body interventions including breathing techniques, meditation, visualization, yoga, journaling), recipes, worksheets, live Q&A, and a community of like-minded people to support your success.  We've added an additional week for a Capstone Project to help jumpstart your transformation and enable you to receive a Certificate of Completion.  Learn a framework to craft your divinely appointed life and be supported every step of the way.  


On a practical level, Power Living is knowing who you are and what you value and organizing your entire life around it--what you do for work, who you choose to love, when and what you eat, how you communicate to your Self and others. On a spiritual level, it is living on Purpose, not just with purpose, allowing you to uncover and release your innate power. The Five Principles of Power Living will guide you. Isn't it time to live an authentic, fully-expressed life?


Transformation is an integrated journey of mind, body and spirit...


You don't have clear direction in terms of your strengths, Purpose and heart's desire.


You have clarity of vision but don't have the energy to take consistent action. 


You get off to a strong start in taking action and then lose faith.


Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy was a researcher at Harvard Business School groomed in analytical thinking and the use of best practices. Therefore, our Power Living system of transformation is anchored in three proven processes:

  1. To help our clients fine-tune their life vision, build self-awareness and cultivate deep belief, we anchor our practices in positive psychology and use evidence-based approaches to self-inquiry such as meditation, visualization, coaching and journaling.
  2. To assure success, we focus on the aggregation of marginal gains making a small 1% improvement every day toward an overarching goal versus one big radical change with the hope it will stick. Making systematic tweeks to your habits while applying the skill of mindful noticing can have a significant impact over time and help develop a growth mindset.
  3. For ongoing motivation and support, we layer in community. With digital technology, you now have access to a growing global network of like-minded people who seek to live authentic, fully-expressed lives.


8 LIVE Virtual Sessions

Each LIVE Zoom session includes 90 minutes with Dr. Kennedy and other participants including a Q&A. Even if you're done 40 Days to Power Living workshops before, the live sessions will offer new material to help you go deeper into crafting a vibrant, fully expressed life.

Week 1: Overview

For the first week, you'll take stock as to where you are along the five key dimensions: mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally and environmentally. You'll also learn foundational concepts and go through an overview of the Five Principles of Power Living.

Week 2: Maximize Your Physical Energy

For the second week, you'll learn the PWR Foods, and the 7 Rules of PWR Eating, as well as how to exercise, breathe and sleep to maximize your physical energy for peak performance and optimum health. We start with the physical so you can feel immediate results and be energized to do the more subtle personal development work.

Week 3: Align Your Spiritual Energy

During Week 3, you'll delve deeper into your own values and beliefs, and align your spiritual energy to be fully Present and on Purpose. We'll hone in on your Motivating Why and work with the Japanese ikigai framework on determining your life's work.

Week 4: Focus Your Mental Energy

At the midway point of Week 4, you'll check your thoughts and language, and learn how to focus your mental energy to create positive manifestations and spur inspiration. This is a good time to address mental roadblocks and limiting beliefs.

Week 5: Engage Your Emotional Energy

For Week 5, you'll practice leading with your heart, and learn how to engage your emotional energy to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and build intimate connections, steady joy and strong faith in your path. You'll learn the Four Stages of Change and strategies to address each stage.

Week 6: Detoxify Your Environmental Energy

For Week 6, you will practice simplicity and specificity, and learn how to detoxify your environmental energy to sustain your flow and support your vision. This has to do with everything in your physical environment, including your space, people and finances.

Week 7: Integrate The Principles

For Week 7, you'll re-assess where you are, plan for the future, and claim your victory. At that point, you'll have a solid foundation for Power Living and can determine how you want to continue the practice on a consistent basis. You will choose ONE intervention to delve further into for the Capstone Project.

Week 8: BONUS Capstone Project

This is your opportunity to choose ONE intervention you experienced during the 40 days and go deeper into it by practicing it consistently for one week. You'll do a pre-assessment and post-assessment, as well as have daily journaling prompts, to identify any shifts. This is the assignment you will submit if you are seeking a Certificate of Completion.

Holistic Approach To Success

Terri and I met when I was the Director of Cultural Health at the American Heart Association in NYC where she was a national speaker and advocate. We did multiple events together for the organization. When I decided to make a career move, she coached me through it. After a few job changes and a foray into entrepreneurship, she is still inspiring me to reach my highest potential. Her emphasis on energy management and breath control has been useful in many stressful situations... I very much appreciate her focus on purpose-driven work and holistic approach to success which I now understand is a lifelong journey. Her 40 Days to Power Living program is a great way to get started."
