Malidoma Some was kidnapped from his rural village in Burkina Faso by Jesuit priests when he was four years old. When he returned 16 years later, no one recognized him an he couldn’t speak the tribal language, but the village elders decided to initiate him into the ways of the tribe and later told him that he would live in the West, teaching traditional African wisdom. April 4-6, Malidoma joins Tibetan Buddhist teacher Dr. Reggie Ray for a weekend workshop and Friday evening lecture. Is there a place in the modern world for ancient spiritual traditions? The two men will explore parallels between traditional Tibetan and West African spiritual world-views and attempt to answer this most vital question.
