About

History and Background

Healing Truth Center by Shawna Marie is “facilitating insight for exceptional living” through programs and services that promote wellness as a conscious, self-directed evolutionary process of achieving one’s full potential. With a special focus on books, life coaching, psychotherapy, and events, Healing Truth Center is wholly focused on supporting life transformation.

Founded December 2007 by Shawna Marie Aarons-Cooke, LCSW-R, The Center has evolved since its early years in Harlem, New York when it featured spiritual counseling, prayer support, and spiritual education workshops. During the 2008 recession, prayer requests from the community-at-large were flooding in. People were calling to ask for money blessings, eviction prevention prayers, and financial help for all kinds of living expenses. The cry for help was loud and clear. Healing Truth Center’s response was Prosperity NOW! Aarons-Cooke penned a book of daily affirmations for prosperous living. The success of the book was immediate and led to the creation of more workshops. The success also prompted Shawna Marie to create the Living in Spiritual Perspective podcast and blog — all based on her highly developed understanding of spiritual principles.

Propelled by the healing that was transforming people’s lives, Shawna Marie was further inspired to publish her second book in 2011, Only God. Healing Truth Center continued to produce the show (which was now on YouTube) and had begun collaborating with other organizations to produce live events. The events focused on women’s empowerment and healing, love and relationships, as well as spiritual education.

Because of the core themes that kept surfacing in Shawna Marie’s work, Healing Truth Center developed three signature coaching programs: Opening to Spirit, Loving Me, and My Prosperity NOW! They were created to facilitate profound understanding and life transformation related to self-love, financial wellness and spiritual growth. Healing Truth Center remains committed to empowering souls worldwide to address the full range of life goals, combining spiritual perspective with expertise in mental health and psychology.
