We all experience pain in life --conflict, illnesses, disappointed dreams, broken relationships, loved ones who die or suffer... It is important to have ways to release that pain and to regularly cleanse ourselves. Otherwise, old pain begins to smother our creativity, our joy, our ability to connect with others. It impacts our health, and can even kill us.
This is a transformational and soul invigorating workshop designed to break through our cultural barriers of grief. There is a need to periodically feel and express grief in order to purge the soul from hurts and pains. The interdiction and suppression of emotion in general, and grief in particular, has recently been linked to the general sense of spiritual drought, emotional confusion and certain illnesses we experience in our life. To begin to regain a serious and lasting sense of connectedness with ourselves and with spirit, we need to find a proper place to release our grief - grief about all the losses we have endured in this life time, the loss of loved ones, the loss of our dreams and the loss of our connection with the ancestors.
In the traditional world of the Dagara of Burkina Faso West Africa, the ritual of grief, conducted almost daily in different parts of the tribe, is the Dagara people's way of releasing the tension caused by loss, and to restore continuity in their relationships. We will enter into the ritual space of grief following the traditional model of the Dagara. It is our hope that it brings the deep sense of release, peace and connectedness in your life.

Here is what past participants have said about Sobonfu's work.

I feel much lighter since doing the last grief ritual with Sobonfu "Nancy Soul".

The grief ritual has helped me deal with my grief and sorrow. It has now become a continuous healing process for me. "Karen Richards"

The Grief Ritual with Sobonfu Somé was soul healing medicine for me. Through her compassion, she inspires participants to let go of their pain, anger, fear and to understand the blessings behind their grief. "Robert A. East P.A."
