Media Bio

Ava St. Claire is a spiritual teacher, facilitator, and advisor who guides leaders through their purpose. As a former marketing executive and tech maven, Ava knows what it means to be a leader in corporate environments while having a Divine calling.

Her background as a hacktivist on Chicago’s southside has secured investors like PNC Bank, US Bank, and JP Morgan Chase. Ava’s forward-thinking, compassionate community leadership is featured in The World is Always Coming to an End by award-winning journalist, Carlo Rotella.

Practicing her heritage of southern root work and traditions of the Magi gives Ava a unique perspective. She teaches on the connections between ancient knowledge and the impact of artificial intelligence on mankind’s spirit. Ava continuously builds a body of knowledge through organizations such as the World Future Society, the Center for Applied Rationality, and the Long Now Foundation.

Ava’s primary gift lies in soul-nourishing thought leadership. She continues to invest in the human potential movement as the Founder of the Sanahalili Institute for Human Spiritual Development.

An Interfaith Temple, Retreat Center, and Research Institution.

“to build an integrative spiritual health facility, Sanahalili, by 2031. The facility will house an interfaith temple, retreat center, and research institution.
