About SOBONFU SOMÉ
Sobonfu Somé was born and raised in the traditional context of her people, the Dagara. She is an instinctive and intuitive teacher who works from a deep well of knowledge and of womanhood Spirit. She is the Author of "Welcoming Spirit Home: Ancient Teachings to Celebrate Children and Community" , "The Spirit of Intimacy: Ancient teachings in the ways of relationships" and the soon to come "Falling Out Of Grace".
Sobonfu Somé's 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.
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. Burkina Faso, which ranks as one of the world's poorest countries, is one of the richest in spiritual life and custom.
Recognized by the village elders as possessing special gifts from birth, Sobonfu Some was fostered by early education in ritual and initiation in preparation for her life's work. Dagara rituals involve healing and preparing the mind, body, spirit and soul to receive the spirituality that is all around us.
It is this reliance on spirit, community and ritual that has allowed Sobonfu's personal and professional path to become one. Since the beginning of her journey in the West, she has traveled extensively throughout North America and Europe, conducting workshops on spirituality, ritual, the sacred and intimacy.
