“There is a deep longing among people in the West to connect with something bigger — with community and spirit.”
One of the foremost voices in African Spirituality

Regretfully, and with heavy hearts, we must announce the cancellation of this formal Grief Ritual due to the passing of our dear Sister, Teacher and friend, Sobonfu Somé.
We know this is not just a loss for us, but for everyone who was touched by her wisdom, teaching, laughter, grace, fierceness, practicality, profoundness and immense LOVE.
Sobonfu was a Blessing to this Come-Unity, and her physical absence will be missed beyond measure.
However, we now will be able to experience the miracle and power of her assistance and guidance on the other side, as our Ancestor.
No more physical limitations, no more pain or grief for our Sister.
We will keep you posted if there will be a gathering in her remembrance. In the mean time, please feel free to leave comments about your experiences with Sobonfu, and your personal remembrances here in the comments. We are still a Come-Unity. Ashe!
Please take the time to really feel and grieve this profound loss, as she would encourage us all to do.
