SAVE THE DATES!! March 4-6, 2011

Sobonfu Some is coming to Santa Barbara

Event Hosted by Wilderness Youth Project

There is a deep longing among people in the West to connect with something
bigger -- with community and spirit. People know there is something missing
in their lives, and believe that the rituals and ancient ways of the village
offer some answers. -- Sobonfu Some

Sobonfu is a daughter of the Dagara tribal community. Dagara rituals are
about healing, acknowledgment of people and their gifts, and making spirit
tangible by preparing mind, body and soul to receive the spirituality that
is all around us. With regular use of ritual, we find our way back to
wholeness, peace and acceptance of self and others. She will be sharing her
grief ritual with our community as a way to release grief, lighten your
soul, let your true spirit be heard and help you become more balanced.

The weekend will be held in Santa Barbara, exact location is TBD. Details to
