         Cedric Paul Harriott, known by his name and title as the leader and founder of our organization Abbot Kai Kihran or Heh Heru, officially created this school, monastery, and resource center on the morning of April the 9th, 2014. The idea came from a noticeable void in information on African philosophers as compared to their European counterparts even though the Africans of antiquity outdated them. This was the catalyst moment of inspiration that caused him to become an avid master student of history, art, and the sciences in search of wherever the truth took him. From this perspective, he created the entire Mystic Degree Pathways that SAAMR uses to bring new monks into the organization, as well as many of the other areas of the organization. He also charged himself to perpetually fund a percentage of the organization as a whole and collects no salary for his generous support.

        After creating the legal entity known as 'The School of the Ancient Alkebu-lanic Mystic Rites, Incorporated.' an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization he next created the framework for what would eventually become the monk monastery. From there he moved into creating a marketplace for products and services, both crafted internally by SAAMR or created in partnership with other SAAMR-approved sources, in support of the mission statement, whereby products and services could be traded and sold. Next, he authored six books and dozens of publications, theory doctrines, models of thought, and the like, in support of the organizations self-paced learning resources as well as its monk monastery. There have been many new developments in the growth of the organization, and those efforts can be found on the About Us, Mission Statement, Positions & Issues, as well as Members area of the website.

        Abbot Kai Kihran, is a pianist, a drummer, a modern mystic, a modern monk, published author, a writer, an ethical mystic vegan, and a systems/network engineer. He also is an avid hiker and well-versed in a variety of subject matters, leading him to be known affectionately as 'The Resident Encyclopedia.'

        His role in this organization is the Founder, the President, and the Pathway Mystic while his three board directors are responsible for the departments of programs and curriculum, records and administration, and matriarchal adorations respectively.
