    SOBONFU E SOME'

    in Lifestyle

    "There is a deep longing among people in the West to connect with something bigger -- with community and spirit. People know there is something missing in their lives, and believe that the rituals and ancient ways of the village offer some answers." These are the simple yet deeply poignant words of author and teacher Sobonfu Somé, one of the foremost voices in African spirituality to come to west. Destined from birth to teach the ancient wisdom, ritual and practices of her ancestors to those in the West, Sobonfu, whose name means "keeper of the rituals" travels the world on a healing mission sharing the rich spiritual life and culture of her native land Burkina Faso, which ranks as one of the world's poorest countries yet one of the richest in spiritual life and custom.

    Recognized by the village elders as possessing special gifts from birth, Sobonfu's destiny was foretold before her birth, as is the custom of the Dagara Tribe of Burkina Faso and was fostered by early education in ritual and initiation in preparation for her life's work. "My work is really a journey in self discovery and in building community through rituals," says Sobonfu. Dagara rituals involve healing and preparing the mind, body, spirit and soul to receive the spirituality that is all around us. "It is always challenging to bring the spiritual into the material world, but it is one of the only ways we can put people back in touch with the earth and their inner values."

    Filled with grace and eloquence, Sobonfu possesses a charm and modesty that enables her to touch her audience deeply. Her message about the importance of spirit, community and ritual in our lives rings with an intuitive power and truth that Alice Walker has said "can help us put together so many things that our modern western world has broken."

    in Self Help

    (Pre-recorded syndicated show. Sorry, no chatroom.)


    Today's topic:  “Sacred Rituals: From the Peace Pipe to the Front Porch” with guest Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories


    Sobonfu Somé once said: "What food is to our body, ritual is to our soul. A ritual keeps us connected to our spirit, our soul and our purpose."


    Our ancestors were aware that sacred rituals were the answer to end human suffering, challenges and heal relationship issues. We must transcend to recognize the power behind the power and rituals guide us by navigating us toward wholeness. The Peace Pipe is ancient and the front porch is modern. How we utilize these tools will help us tap into ancient wisdom, so that we might apply these tools in our modern times.


    Dawn Wolf (aka Gregory E. Woods) is a musician, writer, a social activist and a Keeper of Stories. He uses the art of weaving stories in diverse settings to restore balance and clarity of thought, spirit, and intent to people in or out of ceremonial settings, especially while supporting the youth at The Empowerment Center and other facilities in the greater Washington Metropolitan Area.


     


    Life Coach Ade says:


     “I am a Transformation Agent and an Intuitive Healer. I express as a Life Coach, Radio Producer and Host, Workshop and Tele-Conference Facilitator.


    I am clear that I am here on this earth to be a Transformation Agent. I have always known this, even when I doubted the knowing. I am a passionate catalyst for the transformation of humanity. The feeling I get when people I work with, step into their highest vision of themselves; confirms that I am in alignment with my life’s purpose.”
