Grief Ritual

Sobonfu Somé is coming to the heart of the heartland! A long awaited opportunity has unfolded. On February 26, 27, 28, 2010, Sobonfu Somé will offer her indigenous African medicine by facilitating a Dagara Grief Ritual for the people of the mid-west. Location is Omaha, Nebraska.

What is a Dagara grief ritual? Grief Ritual is one of the most important rituals of Dagara people. The ritual is a soul-cleansing rite that can clear away lingering clouds and festering wounds from abandonment, divorce, death, the loss of careers, dreams and much more. This ritual can help release grief, lighten your soul, let your true spirit be heard and help you become more balanced. Sobonfu, assisted by Jojopah, a fire shaman, will lead a group of participants through this two and half day event.

Who attends or should attend the grief ritual? People feeling grief for the earth, anyone who has lost a loved one, a job, a dream or pet; people who are stuck in unhealthy relationships or emotionally unhealthy situations; therapists, educators, business people, retired people, Veterans, Holocaust survivors, gardeners, lawyers, scientists, musicians, doctors, nurses, artists... people exploring their feelings or experiencing loss, people like you and I, etc.... Participants build a traditional African ritual space, transition to becoming a village, drum, sing, move and grieve. The 2 ½ day ritual is quite rigorous. The facilitators recommend participants reserve some personal transition time the day after the event. Pricing is $340 partial scholarships may be available. Contact Julie to inquire.
