On June 15, 2005 The Dallas Morning News reported, "A Nigerian Yoruba priestess and two shamans – one an African Zulu spiritualist, the other an African-American spiritual healer – will add African and American black perspectives when more than 25 multiethnic spiritual leaders gather in Dallas this month. Hindus, Jews, Native Americans, Hare Krishnas, Catholics, Congregationalists and Wiccans will be among the nearly three dozen varied believers who will share philosophies at the record-setting conference on Religious Tolerance in a World of Spiritual Diversity. Planners say they expect the four-day meeting to be the largest assembly of new age and old world alternative spiritual thinkers and mainstream religious leaders that will explore tolerance. They are expected to discuss freewheeling and wide-ranging topics including faith healing, Generation X, gay marriage, world conflicts and interracial adoptions."
