PRLog - Feb. 19, 2014 - Malidoma Somé, PhD., native of Burkina Faso, West Africa, modern-day African shaman, teacher and acclaimed author of several books, including The Healing Wisdom of Africa, will be launching a new training series – Ritual Healing Village (RHV) - in June 2014 at the East Coast Village in Cherry Plain, NY. The Ritual Healing Village is a 4-part series of intensive rituals offering "active and experiential exploration into the magic and the spirit of Nature, the significance and crafting of sacred space, the building and activation of objects of power and, more importantly, a bold dive into the craft, strategy, design, and implementation of protection and healing," says Dr. Somé.

For nearly 25 years, Dr. Somé has devoted himself to being the voice from out of the continent of Africa dedicated to the inclusion of its Ancestral wisdom in the concert of world culture and spirituality cradled by the West. Through lectures, workshops, residential trainings and several acclaimed books, Dr. Somé has been sharing the ancient wisdom and practices of his people, the Dagara of Burkino Faso, West Africa.
Dr. Somé notes that over the past decade he has witnessed increasing numbers of people wanting to embrace a comprehensive path of growth, healing and transformation. Yet, with a limited understanding of what to do and how to proceed, many have become "stressed and sometimes distressed."
The Ritual Healing Village, to be held at the East Coast Village, Cherry Plain, NY, includes two intensives offered in 2014:
The Elements of Nature, June 14-21, 2014
Gateways to the Other World, September 17-21, 2014
Concluding the series, The Alchemy of Protection and A Celebration of Life are set to be held in summer and fall of 2015.
This educational program will be administered by the Ancestral Wisdom Bridge Foundation, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering people through the practices of indigenous African spirit technologies as brought to the West by Dagara Elder, Dr. Malidoma Somé.
