From the Publisher:

In his first novel, Khafra Om-Ra-Seti flows with the spirit of ancient African wisdom and martial arts mastership. This book brings together many of his beliefs and visions regarding the search for a true meaning in life. The saga of the Dogon family, and the ancient beauty and spirit of Capoeira, moves the reader into the realms of msyticism, power and deceit, love and hate, freedom and redemption, and the burning passion to reach the highest level of self-mastery in one’s lifetime. This is the story that Khafra has wanted to tell for a long time!

From the Author:


The Art of Combat Mastership in the martial arts is a lifetime commitment. It is dedication to an ancient rite and a deep inner spiritual quest to perfect a sacred art form. In the bowels of the struggle for mastery and the evolution of innate abilities, the artist comes face to face with the thin line between life and death. And as proficiency is acquired, the ultimate realization is not the final achievement of mastership, but the discovery of the way, the path and flow of continuous evolution and creativity in the universe. We find the true meaning of life by understanding the penetrating reality of death. For in life as in death, the spirit of man continues to move. Many martial arts systems were born out of the struggle to survive and resist tyranny, to triumphant over evil, to overcome oppression. The genius of various worldwide cultures has been to create a large array of styles, techniques, routines, weapons, movements and methods of fighting in unarmed and armed combat. The majority of dedicated and sincere martial artists are primarily concerned with the need for self-defense and in mastering their art form as a way of life. The story in this book explores the deeper goals of the martial artist and the struggle with the complex issue of evolving to higher levels of growth and development. It is a story of self-actualization, a story of being in concert with the ever-changing flow of life. It speaks to the quest of initiations in the way of the sacred temples of ancient Kemet. This story celebrates the path and flow in the mysticisms, mythologies, philosophies and traditions of ancient African/Kemetic culture.
