    Malidoma Some - Dagara Cosmology

    in Health

    "For the Dagara, cosmology begins with the story of creation.  In the beginning there was no earth as we know it.  In its place was a burning planet, a ball of fire combusting at high speed.  Therefore, fire is the first element of the Dagara wheel.  Fire is present in everything, and everything needs fire.  It was not until this moving and burning sphere encountered a huge body of water that things began to change.  Water became the second element in the cosmological wheel.  The shock resulting from the collision of fire and water not only slowed the combustion process, but also chased fire into the underworld, leaving the surface as a hot steamy place, fertile for the breeding of all kinds of life forms.  This surface, hospitable to life, is what is known as earth, which constitutes the third elemental principal of the Dagara cosmological wheel.  The various hard components of the earth provide structure and connection and are known as mineral or stone, the fourth element in the cosmological.wheel.

    Meanwhile, a steam of great density formed the atmosphere around the earth.  (These images translate imperfectly into Western terms; think of them as poetic rather than scientific descriptions.)  As the steam expanded, its pressure began to subside.  The reduction of atmospheric pressure was conducive to the birth of life,and thus the fifth element, vegetative nature, came into being." The Healing Wisdom of Africa


     Educated in the West,Dr.Some holds three masters and two Ph.Ds.and is the author of four books,including his autobiography:"Of Water and The Spirit".and"The Healing Wisdom of Africa".Dr.Some'an initiated Elder and shaman or high priest-will expound on the significance of"Initiating Change" As a house quest of BabaWesley Gray and his wife SpiritChange,.Malidoma shared his story.

    Malidoma Some - The Call of The Ancestors - Nature and the Dagara Shaman

    in Health

    "We find in nature everything we need to be whole.  But the gap between us and nature is growing bigger instead of smaller---we humans should not alter anything in nature because we run the risk of losing life-giving information hidden in it.  As a consequence, illness is a distancing from the model of health offered by nature and any stuckness in our lives is due to a piece of nature having falling off from the inner structure of their existence.  No one can survive without nature!

    Most of us have been visually conditioned to see the world within a limited spectrum, and for each person, this is the spectrum into which every object must fit.  The wider the visual horizon of a person, the closer he or she is to seeing things as they are.  After all, reality is malleable, manufacturable, and therefore transferable.  In other words, we all see the same tree because we are bound by an agreement.  But those who can break the agreement are able to see more closely into the core of being.  For example indigenous "magicians" are people who are not bound by consensus perception, hence their ability to see through all living things." Of Water and The Spirit - Dr. Malidoma Patrice Some'


     With Dr. Malidoma Patrice Some as a guest at the home of Baba Wesley Gray and his wife Dr. Dora Gray aka Queenmother Spirit Change and then on our show that aired on 10/23/10,we discussed two of his international best selling  books,  The Healing Wisdom of Africa and Of Water and The Spirit Join Baba Wesley this evening, as he reads excerpts from the two books, and find out about ritual, magic and initiation in the life of an African Shaman.
