With a generous and tender heart, Sobonfu Somé holds out her hand. From her extended palm, she offers simply stated pearls – mined from the lives of her west African Dagara village elders, brothers and sisters - about the importance of a living, breathing continual connection with spirit and community; about the ways to experience a genuine intimacy with life itself. - Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PH.D, Author of "Women Who Run with the Wolves"
Intimacy is the song of spirit inviting two people to come and share their spirit together. It is a song that no one can resist. We hear it awake or sleeping, in community or alone. -- Sobonfu Somé from The Spirit of Intimacy.
Healthy relationships are at the heart of being human; yet creating healthy ones can be a challenge. How do you create and sustain healthy connections? How do you allow spirit to be your guide? We will explore these questions while focusing on the three levels of intimacy: intimacy with spirit; intimacy with the self and intimacy with loved ones.
