Pressestimmen

"In this profoundly wise and fascinating book Malidoma Patrice Some 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." Alice Walker -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

A beautifully written book which brings ancient wisdom teachings of healing and ritual from the heart of Africa to the modern world. Malidoma Patrice Some 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 Some 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. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In his latest book, Malidoma Some talks about how the wisdom developed over millenia by indigenous people in Africa can be used to deal with the very real psychological and spiritual impoverishment of the West. He says that while the West has an abundance of material goods (taken in large part from the natural resources that belong to all living creatures), Africans possess the capacity of enriching their own lives by communicating through rituals on a continuous basis with what he calls the "other world", the world beyond the material senses, or what Carlos Castaneda would call the "human inventory". Some recommends getting in touch with our ancestors and keeping them in our lives by devoting shrines to them and opening a dialogue with them. This makes particular sense to someone who has lost someone close and feels a great lack between the material message that the person is dead and therefore gone, and the feeling that somehow one has not really disconnected. Some also recommends frequent grief rituals (not just when suffering a loss but all the time) to keep the spirit in tune, and purged of the daily wear and tear of living. It is a wonderful book: humane, wise, well-thought out and very well written. A real joy for someone looking for a new way of dealing with life.

This book clearly offers the insights and wisdom that many "Western" readers seek for the creation of community and healing rituals. Malidoma's writing is inspiring and personal. I felt not only a deeper understanding of the Dagara way of life, but also of the commitment and dedication Malidoma has in offering their wisdom for healing the ills of the modern world.
I was left with a sense of embarrassment and shame that for all the complexities, distractions and damage that we have brought down upon the indigenous cultures of the world, that this wonderfully generous and caring man would offer us healing rituals in return.
I would hope that all who read this book will take its message to heart and work to incorporate the healing rituals that are described into their lives. I sincerely believe that the survival of both the modern and natives cultures depends on it.

I have read this book along with all of Malidoma's works. I believe Malidoma has one of the best skills at articulating the problem that Western/European reality has posed on the rest of us. I personally do not use the specific rituals that he recommends because I have rituals that my own culture prescribes; however, I think any person that is ready to take a spiritual advance need to read this book and put his suggestions to practice. I have met Malidoma and found him to have a beautiful spirit filled with wisdom and the innocence of a child. I believe that anyone can trust what this teacher has to say. I also recommend this book for all priests and healers in the world because Malidoma has touched something that need not be ignored if we are to heal ourselves and others. Thank you Malidoma.

Malidoma shows a great understanding of his peoples' values and trys to put them into western language as articulately as possible. The result is a window into another world so unrelated in every way to the one we are so distracted with.
Malidoma very concisely sets the book out under the headings of values that his culture considers are of the most importance eg. ritual, he then passes on the physical happenings and the spiritual meanings behind it.
It is an eloquent and yet complex read that will touch your souls memory and it remembers the peace that it felt once....
