SUMMARY ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Malidoma Patrice Somé CHARACTERS Of Water and the Spirit Ritual Magic and Initiation in the Life of an African Shaman ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Malidoma Patrice Some was born in a Dagara Village however he was soon to be abducted to a Jesuit school where he remained for the next fifteen years being harshly indoctrinated into Eu. The Sanskrit phrase Purva Paksha to turn the gaze around has been applied in a modern context by the essayist and philosopher Rajiv Malhotra in the sense of reverse anthropology colonized cultures naturalistically studying the cultures of their colonizers This is usually done to the end of demonstrating the types of knowledge and the ways of knowing native to the colonized civilization to both the colonizers and to the most thoroughly colonized among their own number Malidoma Patrice Som performs this task admirably but does so from a position of the starkest necessityKidnapped by a French Catholic missionary at around the age of five Malidoma his first name dictates much of his life s narrative and so feels appropriate than using his sirname was forced into a French colonial school and eventually seminary The entire educational system imposed by Catholics upon so many native children in the region of Burkina Faso and Ghana was intended to make of the Africans the most effective missionaries by which to undermine their own traditional ways of life It was in short brainwashing of an intensive and parasitic sort Yet after escaping back to his own Dagara people at the age of 20 his best guess Malidoma found himself given the inverse mission by his elders to bring Dagara ways of knowing to the white world that just maybe whites could learn to appreciate what they had brought to the brink of destruction and importantly the nature of the very real spiritual disease which makes Europeans behave as colonizersHow successful any one man can be in such a massive task is hard to say but there is something to be said for the effort There are enough thinkers and practitioners from a variety of colonized societies attempting to do just that and we should all take their missions to heart and pray that others do so too Malidoma Patrice Som s Of Water and the Spirit is an excellent place to start a deeply personal narrative which reveals as much of the Dagara way of knowing as is possible to put into text while also sharing the depths of despair to which a person may be driven when he is not a native to modernity yet is forced to inhabit its stifling bordersSome may read this book and scoff at the fantastical elements teleportation communication with spirits physical journeys to a very real Underworld none of these are events which most readers are inclined to accept as anything than metaphors if not outright fabrications Perhaps I am sticking my neck too far out but the world has proven herself far too interesting for me to dismiss these experiences out of hand I have seen enough known enough and met enough by now to say at least this I am no longer so uick to interpret away stories I hear or read about bodily abductions into the world of spirits under the Earth or Tantric rituals which animate bodies thoroughly dead through the agency of elemental spirits the walking corpses of Africa and south Asia or the deadly shapeshifters of the American Southwest Life is infinitely interesting
