Join us Sunday as we welcome Sobonfu Somé, one of the foremost voices in African spirituality. 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 is 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 she was born and was fostered by early education in ritual and initiation in preparation for her life’s work.
Sobonfu has written The Spirit of Intimacy, Welcoming Spirit Home, Falling Out of Grace, and Women’s Wisdom from the Heart of Africa. She is the founder of Ancestors Wisdom Spring, an organization dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of indigenous wisdom. Sobonfu travels extensively throughout North America and Europe conducting workshops on spirituality, ritual, the sacred, and intimacy. Her work has moved African spiritual practices from the realm of anthropology, to a place alongside the world’s great spiritual traditions, with a message of profound significance and practical application in the lives of Westerners.
