Dominica Zhu Global Wisdom Collective

Dominica Zhu

Founder, Managing Director 

Dominica is a writer, cross-cultural unifier, ocean advocate, health coach, and indigenous wisdom protector.

She is dedicated to protecting what is most ancient and timeless within our world and unifying these with all that we have gained in modern living and learning.

Her desire to understand the roots of humanity has led her travels through the continent of Asia and Africa where she has spent time countless hours listening and documenting stories shared by the elders of many societies which has led to a deep understanding of their medical systems and life practices as a way to preserve their legacy.

She has seen first hand the way that the wisdom of our ancestors and of our planet’s indigenous people hold many hidden clues to living deeply & fully in ways that modern life has either lost or forgotten.  She also became acutely aware that we can rediscover much-needed guidance on how to approach the conflicts and planetary ailments we are facing today.

Dominica offers her talents forged during years of global work on issues of poverty, human rights, and health, as a social impact strategist, partnership builder, speaker, and healer. She follows her  thousand years lineage of traditional healing from her bloodline. She is based out of Seattle, WA and holds an MBA in Global Sustainable Social Enterprise and degrees in nutritional sciences and social justice.  She is also a Certified Health Coach and Certified Bodytalk Practitioner, a consciousness-based healing modality.

Dominica is also an ocean drowning survivor, and lends her experience in surviving death to her work and passion to create a more whole and healthy Planet.
