In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion, we examine the nature and function of the Abusua and Ntoro, the matriclan and patriclan and the Abosom (Deities) related to them. We inherit our Abusuabosom and Ntorobosom (Egyabosom) via direct blood-transmission transcarnationally - intergenerationally through successive reincarnations (bebra). They govern our spiri-genetic inheritance - our spiritual DNA.
The Abosom of the Abusua and Ntoro have a direct impact on every aspect of our lives including dietary, social and spiritual akyiwade (taboos, restrictions).
We examine our publications:
The Origin of the Term Abosom in Kamit
THE OKRA/OKRAA COMPLEX - The Soul of Akanfo
Odwirafo Kwesi Ra Nehem Ptah Akhan

Robert Cost, an author from Portsmouth, Virginia has been writing poetry, music and short stories since the age of 5. In First Grade at Tanners Creek Elementary he won second place at a book story competition. That's when he was pushed by his family to write more stories, although he failed to take heed to their advice.
It wasn't until Robert was 20 and serving a 10 year sentence in the penitentiary where he decided to pick up the pen again. At the time he was gang banging and had a lot of hatred & resentment in his heart. He thought he would never make it home. With the many trials & tribulations he was going through, he used the pen as a way of expressing himself. Almost like a form of release. His stories might be a work of fiction, but the pain, turmoil, emotions expressed within those pages are too real!
Bio for Tannis Laidlaw
Tannis was born in Canada then emigrated to New Zealand to do various degrees in Psychology/Psychiatry. She started writing early (a soppy poem published in her High School Yearbook) but quickly turned to academic writing. Some sixty publications on, she began the fun of writing fiction.
In the meantime, she worked as an OT, a psychologist or a researcher in large mental hospitals or universities, in community psychiatry, in forensic psychology, and in private practice.
Somehow she accumulated eight novels on her hard drive before she thought some might be publishable. Recently her agent has found her a publisher, and she now has a contract to write two murder mysteries. She published PUMPKIN EATER with a small NZ publisher, then self-published BYE BABY BUNTING and recently HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES.
PUMPKIN EATER is the story of the aftermath of a woman who snapped, a woman who was both physically and emotionally abused in the past, who broke away from her awful husband by throwing him down the stairs leaving him in a pool of blood, then escaping. Great fun to write!
BYE BABY BUNTING centres around a young university student who becomes an ‘unwed mother’, is pressured to give up her baby for adoption, then steals her back again. Like PUMPKIN EATER, this is a psychological thriller.
HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES takes place in an English medical school where our protagonist has been head-hunted to lead a research team. She encounters a bully for a boss, a woman who will stop at nothing to gain the prestige she wants. Workplace bullies have long fascinated Tannis…
She also wrote and published CUT THE CARBS, CUT THE GUT, a review, put into layman’s language, of the science behind a largely unacknowledged diet for health and weight loss.

Seventy-five years after Joseph Stalin's reign of terror across Eastern Europe, entertainment journalist Greg Archer takes a step back from Hollywood and examines his Polish family's mind-bending odyssey of the 1940s. In the process, he exposes one of the most under-reported events of the 20th Century: Stalin's mass deportation of nearly two million Polish citizens to the Siberian gulags and the life-shattering events that followed. The book, Grace Revealed, takes you on that journey.
But the author's quest takes a dramatic turn. As he walks an emotional tightrope between the past and the present, can a serendipitous global adventure become a saving grace, heal the ancestral soul and bring justice to his family and their forgotten Polish comrades?
