T'Malkia Zuri, affectionately known by her friends, family, colleagues, and listening audience as Empress T, is committed to empowering and inspiring others to find their path toward a more stress-free, healthy and harmonious life, to inspire others to turn toward their path of spiritual growth, and to enlighten others to live their ultimate purpose of being.
Ms. Zuri transitioned out of religion during the winter of 2011 after forty-three plus years of indoctrination. She has devoted much of her time to sharing what she has learned. She was born and raised a Baptist, then converted to Pentecostal, then Islamic, then Hebrew Israelite, and finally non-denomination. She worked in every area of "ministry" after attending many classes and receiving certificates of completion. Over the course of about thirty plus years, she managed to be a member of the choir, the missionary board, the usher board; a Sunday School Teacher, Bible Study Instructor, Pastor's Aid/Armor Bearer, and a National Licensed/Ordained Minister under a commercialized organization. Ms. Zuri hosted the popular and controversial radio show "Life After Christianity 101" from 2012-2015. Her main objective is "NOT to convert people, but to encourage them to think outside of the box while provoking them to seek and study for themselves." One will often hear The Empress proclaiming: "Eye can't liberate you for YOU have to liberate yourself, BUT Eye can HELP you to BECOME liberated."
Ms. Zuri is the Founder and CEO of Griot Publishing House and Griot International, LLC as well as "The Write Cipher," an organization that assists inspiring/aspiring Writers in sharing their thoughts with the world. She is the Founder of GriotSites.com, a web hosting, and web design business that specializes in custom web designs, domain maintenance and more.
Ms. Zuri attended one of the largest Metaphysical schools in the world and obtained her Bachelors degree in Metaphysical Science; specializing in Holistic, New Thought, and Metaphysical Ministerial studies. In September of 2015, she completed a Hypnotherapy course and received her certificate in Basic Hypnotherapy. She is scheduled to receive her Doctrine in May of 2016 specializing in Transpersonal Psychology.
Ms. Zuri is in the process of establishing her own spiritual center called "The Spiritual Transformation & Restoration Center" where she will assist individuals on restoring and strengthening their Energy/Spirit Being. Affectionately known by some as "The Spirit Physician," Ms. Zuri vows to devote much of her energy to helping others to repair the spiritual damage caused by religion.
Last but not least, Ms. Zuri has authored 4 books: (2007) "Sister 2 Sister: A Treasured Gift/Repairing the GAP in Sisterhood, (2009) It's Mourning Time: Fasting the Spirit Man, (2013) He, She & Them: Restoring the Original Family" and (2015) Divorcing Jesus: A Love Story."

Ms. Zuri desires to see restoration in families as well as healthy relationships that will strengthen the family structure.
