Meet Dr. Malidoma Somé

Many people consider Malidoma Somé to be the most important living interpreter of African indigenous wisdom in the west. As divined by his elders before he was born, he has devoted his life in many places around the world to build a bridge between two apparently conflicting cultures.

MALIDOMA SPEAKS

Elder Malidoma’s Interview with Jeffrey Mishlove on the Thinking Allowed series.

This is a short excerpt of a video in which Malidoma Somé describes his childhood among the Dagara people, focusing on their use of ritual as a means of establishing an ongoing relationship with the worlds of their ancestors and of the spirits. He also describes his own shamanic initiation. He suggests that the elders of the Dagara community were skilled in creating doorways through which practitioners could pass into other dimensions of reality.
