“In this profoundly wise and fascinating book Malidoma Patrice Somé has delivered an incomparably meaningful gift to us wanderers and seekers in the West. The way back to the memory of who we once were; the way forward to who we are or might become.”
A beautifully written book which brings ancient wisdom teachings of healing and ritual from the heart of Africa to the modern world.
Malidoma Patrice Somé is both an initiated African shaman and a gifted Western scholar. His name literally means “he who makes friends with the stranger” and he has spent his life immersing himself in African and Western cultures in order that he may bridge the gap between the two.
In this book he takes us on a fascinating journey through the ritual practices and spiritual wisdom of the Dagara people who are renowned throughout West Africa for their miraculous powers of healing.
In much the same way as Deepak Chopra is able to communicate complex Ayurvedic philosophy in an accessible way, Malidoma Somé applies the solutions of an ancient African tradition to the problems of the modern world. He addresses the widespread psychological problems of loneliness, alienation and lack of purpose with the healing powers of ritual and connection to nature.
This is a ground-breaking book as, for the first time, we have an authentic voice initiated into an African healing tradition who speaks with academic prowess and personal experience of modern Western culture.
