What community and love is really about
What a difference is to read a book about African traditions and teachings when the person who is writing has been born there. Often times when we read books writen by western writers (or even when we see a documentary about Africa) the main theme is how strange these people are... But the Book that Sobonfu Somé presents, telling the the views and stories about the Dagara people, give us a whole new perspective about how life can be lived and what is really important about life. This book is not about whose views or culture is superior, and yet it shows that there is a richness in the native way of living that cannot be found, and bougth, in our civilized society. The Spirit of Intimacy ends up serving as a brigde to only to help us rethink about how we can connect we our lover, but also with ourselfves and our community (the world).Was this review helpful?
