Grief Ritual with Sobonfu Somé

- Cancelled -

Dear Friends,

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 our communities and this earthly plane, and her physical presence 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 meantime, please post about your experiences with Sobonfu and your personal remembrances here in the comments. We are still a community. Ashe!

Please take the time to really feel and grieve this profound loss, as Sobonfu would have encouraged us all to do.
