Publisher's Summary

In this remarkable book, Malidoma Some explores the essential role ritual plays in maintaining community and examines the structure common to all ritual. By telling stories of the rituals of his native West African Dagara culture, and his own experiences in the tribal community, he makes a convincing case that the lack of ritual in the Western world is a fundamental reason that the fabric of society is unravelling.

MUST READ FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN HEALING THIS WORLD-Valuable Spiritual Rituals

Ritual provides a number of insights to the dis-eases which plague the Western world. It also gives valuable ideas & inspiration to incorporate these rituals into our daily lives. I feel that the ‘grief’ ritual is absolutely needed in this culture for so many reasons; I am certain that implementation of these rituals will provoke immediate change in the hearts of the youth and elders alike. I hope to one day be a part of creating this ritual in my community. Mu

Ritual

This work of ART has more than affirmed some things for me as WELL as enlightened me on much more & awakened another flame, power, joy, & beauty from within my soul. Definitely is a recommended read / listen in general, but also specifically to reach / touch / awaken those that may feel disconnected or discombobulated in their existence/ experience on this planet. Joyful grand rising!
