あらすじ・解説

Born in West Africa in the early 1950s, Somé was kidnapped at age four by a French Jesuit missionary to be trained as a priest, for the next 15 years enduring the harsh regimen of a seminary where his native language and tribal traditions were systematically suppressed. At age 20 he escaped, but when he returned to his Dugara people in Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso) they rejected him as an outsider. To reconnect with his native culture, Somé underwent a month-long initiation into shamanism during which he reports that he journeyed to the underworld, became a bird, then a porcupine, and was buried alive.

Made an unabridged version.

No one but himself.

The rest of his story! Audible only has the abridged version.

We need more audio books like this

This book opened me up into another world of magic and culture that inspires me to look more closely at the world and beyond the surface of other cultures. I enjoyed this book immensely.

Phenominal and life-changing!!!

I loved this book...his story is the story of all of us if we will pause, surrender and listen to the voices of our ancestors...they are the bridge to our future but we have to be willing to "let go" of who we "think" we are to become who we "already are"!!! I am ready for my initiation...

Powerful!!!!

This is an essential message especially for those of WEST AFRICAN DESCENT to understand the critical importance of culture and what colonialism stole from us.

Amazing Story

I'm really glad that I got the audible book because I felt like I was actually experiencing the same thing as the author. I could have read the story myself, but his voice and inflections added to the overall story. I feel like I was lead to this book spiritually, and that it was needed for this particular moment in my life. We are indeed interconnected, and the sooner we get this understanding; the better it will be for the entire world. Ase'

Why is this only available w giant gaps in the story?

Hands down this is one of my favorite books. I’m so sad that it’s abridged here though. It’s like all the best juiciest parts were cut out. Even though it’s still good, I’m disappointed.

Humbling life story, inspirational.

Sometimes hearing a life story like this is needed to remind us to look at our own path and see if it's the one we really should be walking.

Finally The Road Is Clear

I have been on my journey for 5 years now. Finally, after darkness there's light. The author has travelled before me, and now it's clear that I haven't taken the wrong steps.

Good book

It was a good book, talking about his life and his experience. Tho it was really not what I was looking for, I was looking for a book about the spiritual aspects of water and stumble upon this one.
Over all it's an very interesting story to say at least.

A Tremendous Read

A most captivating and insightful read. It opens up a door, which has been closed due to the reprogramming of my people.
