Embark on a profound exploration of indigenous spirituality with the Sacred Circle Book Club, hosted by Shaman Molly Maguire at the Healing Arts Center & Spa, nestled within Cavallo Point.

This month’s featured book is “Of Water and the Spirit” by Malidoma Somé, a captivating memoir that takes readers on a transformative journey into the heart of West African shamanism. Born into the Dagara tribe in 1960, Malidoma was forcibly taken from his community during the French-colonial era and sent to a Catholic seminary. His early life was a blend of two worlds, as he underwent rigorous training as a priest while yearning for the spiritual traditions of his people.

Returning to his village as a young adult, Malidoma faced the challenge of reintegrating into his tribal community and reclaiming his ancestral roots. His remarkable story unfolds as he navigates the complexities of cultural identity, spiritual awakening, and the calling to bridge ancient wisdom with the modern world.

Through Malidoma’s journey, readers are invited to explore indigenous traditions and the profound spiritual teachings of the Dagara people, offering insights and wisdom rarely glimpsed from a Western perspective.

Join Shaman Molly Maguire and fellow book club members in a thought-provoking discussion that delves into themes of cultural heritage, resilience, and the power of ancestral wisdom. Discover the hidden depths of indigenous spirituality and gain a deeper understanding of your own spiritual path.
