Many of you are familiar with Malidoma Some’s work with men and initiation, flowing from his tribal connections to the African Dagara. His now ex wife Sobonfu Some has some equally powerful things to say about women’s processes. This video is especially poignant, as Sobonfu talks about how grief is related to knowing where the un-released parts of us are hidden away…an appropriate message for solstice and Advent.

I’d love to know what you think about this video. It stirred me deeply, especially the connection to ancestors: we have do the work of dying to be connected to them.
