Minister Ora B. Nance-Woodley began her spiritual service work in 1987 by answering the calling to be a minister of healing. Since then her journey of learning, teaching and healing have included study in the Master Program at Christ Universal Temple (founded by Rev., Dr. Johnnie Colemon) in Chicago, IL. Minister Ora received her Bachelors’ degree in Metaphysics at the University of Sedona and is certified in several energetic healing modalities. She has taught Meditation/Visualization, Conflict/Resolution, Tapping(4styles) Leadership, Forgiveness, Public Speaking, Muscle Testing, Seichim-Reiki and is a Phlebotomist. She also holds healing clinics around the country, raising awareness of alternative medicines and their ability to compliment standard medicine practices.

Ora’s journey of creative expression began in her teens as the youngest of eight talented African American children, born on the south side of Chicago. For over 25 years Ora sharpened her talents as an actor, writer, singer and director/producer of the stage, TV and independent films in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. She has also written her first book; Diving: Poems & Prose for the Fearless Explorer and is at present working on her 2nd book on wholistic care giving. She has been an award-winning member of Toastmasters since 2007.

Simultaneously, Ora built an impressive background in the business world. Experience in Marketing/PR(Interim Management, Creative Services Co.), promotions, program directing, project managing, catering, accounts receivable & payable (Princess Cruises)and customer service coordination(Budweiser) have anchored Ora’s business savvy.  All of those skills came in handy as the Membership Chair for the Southside branch of the NAACP (2008), when creating membership drive events. She has also taught social & life skills, creative writing & drama to students in Chicago and Los Angeles (disabled adults), through non-profits, privately and the public school systems.


Currently, Ora is working on her masters in Metaphysics. Soon Ora and her husband Keith will be launching her radio show, “Sense and NonSense” on blog talk radio and YouTube channel with the same name.
