My guest this week is MALIDOMA SOME, a West African Elder, author, teacher, diviner, and healer. His life path has been difficult to say the least; from being born in an obscure village in West Africa; kidnapped at age 4 by a Jesuit Priest and sent away to be schooled in Christianity; escaping at age 20 to return to his homeland; having to learn his native language again; being trained to be a shaman; then on to higher education to earn three Masters Degrees and two doctorates at the Sorbonne and Brandeis University; and finally to teach at the University of Michigan.
Wabun Wind, will be sitting in for me as host this week. She was Sun Bear's Medicine Helper and co-authored several books with him. She will be sharing more about the Medicine Wheel and how to use it, plus - she will have as her guest, Star Savoy, an astrologer who has developed a technique using western solar astrology together with Native American lunar astrology and the Medicine Wheel for a more complete and well rounded reading. This will be a great show, so don't miss it!
OLGA KARITIDI, author of "Enter The Circle", will share her experiences of being born in Russia during the Cold War period, working as a psychiatrist in a Siberian mental hospital, and ultimately being drawn into Shamanism by meeting a kam (shaman) in the mysterious Altai mountains. This meeting utterly changed her life, and moved her out of the box of politically correct thinking about the cause of illness, both physical and mental.
JYOTI, Ambassador and spokes person for the 13 GRANDMOTHERS, will tell us about the vision that sparked the coming together of the 13 indigenous grandmothers from all over the world, how this gathering was prophesied long ago, and the work these Grandmothers are doing to bring awareness of the oneness of all creation, and peace among peoples of all walks of life. It is a powerful and inspiring story, so be sure and tune in to hear the details.
