This book was a gift from my friend Mike Johnston, an amazing jazz musician with deep ties to West African traditions. A few weeks later, my friend Gale asked me if I'd read her friend Malidoma's book. I'm reminded of one of my favorite quotes: "The belief in coincidence is the pervading superstition of the scientific age." So far, it's a great read.
