Dr. Cooper-Lewter is called the “Inmate Whisperer” by Capital Trial Attorneys because of his ability to facilitate inmates sharing difficult psychosocial histories. In 2012, he was chosen to be on the cover of the Carolinian magazine, which was the inaugural issue of the University of South Carolina’s “No Limits” branding effort. The Carolinian’s featured story gave him a new nickname: the “Soul Whisperer.”
He “coaches hearts to empower minds” to embrace their God-given potential. His clients and many former students agree that “when the unspoken must be spoken & the unknown must be known,” Rev. Dr. Cooper-Lewter is the one to trust. He conducts therapist trainings, he works with athletes at all levels and in all sports to overcome the odds to optimize personal achievement on and off the field, and he assists in the development of Rites of Passage programs for youth. He honors his African, Native American and European ancestry and recommends recapturing the ancient healing folk/spiritual values and practices of “Soul Therapy.”
A portion of the royalties earned from Soul of Success, Vol.1 will be donated to Entrepreneur’s International Foundation, a not for profit organization dedicated to creating unique launch campaigns to raise money and awareness for charitable causes.
Soul of Success, Vol.1: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs and Professionals Reveal Their Core Strategies for Getting to the Heart of Health, Wealth and Success is tentatively scheduled for release in the Fall of 2015.
