Malidoma: Thank you for your work to bring us together! It continues to grow.
Waylon Lewis: Thank you for interviewing Malidoma. Having this interview available for anyone in the world to watch for free is p r i c e l e s s.

*: Clearly, Malidoma 'gets it' I am truly inspired after having read his book: Of Water and the Spirit; Ritual Magic, and Initiation in the Life an African Shaman and watched this interview.
