Malidoma embraces the loss of meaning and purpose among people in the modern world and identifies a deep desire within men and women to recover their "inner indigenous"--being at home in their bodies, nature, and communities.

From AudioFile:

SomŽ, a spokesman for the elders of the Dagara tribe of Burkina Faso, West Africa, speaks here about the "tribal community of the heart." In this live recording of a workshop for a men's group, SomŽ emphasizes the importance of home, community, initiation and ritual to the reclamation of individual and collective purpose. Discovery of purpose is the thread running throughout his talk. Although the format is a "men's workshop," SomŽ eloquently addresses issues equally relevant to both sexes. He applies indigenous values to the contemporary challenges we all face. The technical difficulties of a live workshop format--wind chimes sounding, doors closing--are small compared to the power of SomŽ's compelling and soulful message. C.S.
