Become a member of the Village and join in celebration of ritual, healing and community. Because dancing together we make a pattern that connects into a whole.
Since 2003, the Ancestral Wisdom Bridge Foundation has been facilitating rite of passage ceremonies and intense experiential healing in nature based on the powerful tradition of the Dagara people, taught by Elder Malidoma Somé, who was destined to reveal the ancient wisdom and practices of his people to the West, to restore individuals to their connection with their indigenous mind – to reconnect with their gifts and purpose.
“Whether they are raised in indigenous or modern culture, there are two things that people crave: the full realization of their innate gifts, and to have these gifts approved, acknowledged, and confirmed. There are countless people in the West whose efforts are sadly wasted because they have no means of expressing their unique genius. In the psyches of such people there is an inner power and authority that fails to shine because the world around them is blind to it.” — The Healing Wisdom of Africa: Finding Life Purpose Through Nature, Ritual, and Community
Your generous donations provide scholarships to those less fortunate who want to participate in the deep experiential healing processes of ritual to be reconnected with their gifts, their life purpose, their reason for being. Like you, they need to be acknowledged and confirmed of their gifts.
We want to ensure that everyone has access to this powerful healing tradition. Here’s how you can help.
Every donation you give to the Foundation is a tax-deductible donation to the extent allowed by law. Make sure to save or print the confirmation email sent to your inbox after you donate.
Your support means so much. Barka! Barka! (barka means thank you in Dagara).
