Women's Wisdom from the Heart of Africa

In the Dagara tribe of West Africa, women are valued as the source of the world's wisdom. They are valued as dreamers, as diviners, as the backbone of the community; the core of human survival.

wonderful audio series

This series is packed with gems. Woven through tales of Dagara practices are beautiful ideas for women and men about relationships, community, life purpose, and support. Despite many differences between Dagara village and urban American life, much is transferable and Sobonfu shares it beautifully.

A Great Way to Understand Our Feminity

Of all of Sobonfu Some works, I thought this was the best by far. In this audiobook, her words are conversational but there are some very profound insights about Femininity and our roles as women in society. While there are lots of books on Female Wisdom (including much recycled knowledge), what Sobonfu Some reveals about women in her culture is more specific and rather unique. Hardly any indigenous women have revealed the secrets and understandings of their culture to the Western world. (Men like Malidoma Some and Martin Prechtel have made some inroads from the male perspective.) I found her views helpful in bringing a richer dimension to being a woman in our culture that expects women (and their concomitant biology) to conform to expectations set by spiritual amnesiacs. Don't expect her to sound like a scholar or a deep-throated wise woman. Her voice has the casual ease of a spunky girlfriend who tells it like it is.

Wisdom from the Mothers!

This audio CD is the most invaluable piece of information I have come across in a long time! I can listen while doing other things....I can use it for our sisters' group meetings...for meditations....for rise to the woman I know I am meant to be!

Fabulous! A must have.

If you are woman. If you are on a spiritual path of any sort. If you wish to go deeper in your personal universe. Then, this set is for you! Sobonfu is fabulous. Check out these as well!

Inspiring and profound (a must for every woman)

These tapes offer great wisdoms and insights from Sobonfu's heart. I found many answers to questions I had not even formulated. I now have many tools and techniques that I can use in my every day life that assist not only my connection to spirit but an honouring of my feminity. Sobonfu provides practical examples from her vast experiences as a woman, providing a platform of power for every woman. She shares the feminity that is universal, crossing difference and culture. As an initiated woman from the Dagara people of West Africa Sobonfu Some in these tapes offers women the opportunity to value her self, life and all her relationships. Changing our perspective and ability to create.
