DRESSING THE WOUNDS OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS:
A CALL TO INTIMACY with Malidoma & Sobonfu Some

Burkina Faso (West Africa) sent to reawaken the modern world to ancient ways
and heal the wounds of personal bonds to general societal disruption.
In this workshop, through ritual, discussion, song and dance, they will
address such questions as:
        Why is it that we often understand so little regarding the wounds of
our past and present relationships, and how to address them?
        Why is it that we allow our capacity to trust and value ourselves,
as well as others, to be impaired as a result of our long suffering wounds?
        Why is it that we allow suspicion and doubt to bring us to a place
of living our lives walled off from the love that surrounds us?
