In the Fon language, we have the phrase se do or "the root of spirit". This is a way to refer to our true essence. We are often too tired, too busy, too distracted by work and the internet and the like to exercise our soul. However, if we are to fon bi - wake completely - we must save ourselves from ourselves. Since ayi or nature was the Afrikans' first teacher it is with nature we start. This 26 page booklet is written for all of those who are struggling to find simple exercises from an Afrikan perspective that elevate the spirit, bring calm and peace, and more importantly help maintain these states. If followed, the teachings in this book can bring about much needed clarity and harmony. In this book, we learn methods of meditation and other Afrikan methods of approaching the sacred. The Root of Spirit: Rediscovering the True Self is a must have for those Afrikans who wish to truly live with and in spirit.The methods in this book are to be used often and with steadied intent. To practice these methods is to have the West Afrikan Vodun experience. Please keep in mind that there are no refunds on any of our digital products.

the download for this had little complications. The material takes out the spookism in Afrukan spirituality.

This little booklet is awesome. Interesting thing is that these few pages are packed with so much useful info that you forget it is only 26 pages! The author has a great grasp of spirituality in general and an obvious command of it from the ancient African perspective. Though I love his use of African terminology he does not overwhelm you with it. He explains nature shrines and now I understand the difference between general worship (as in relation to nature shrines where everyone can worship), and consecrated shrines by priests. This is a book that you will read over again and see new perspectives. It is a guide whereas you can add your own flavor to it for your personal spiritual practices. Ultimately, after seeing his works, I feel that the author, His Royal Majesty Agelo Agbovi, is a true guide for our people but unfortunately I think his teachings and works are one of those best kept secrets. I highly recommend his works and hope the best kept secret thing changes.

Root of Spirit is a phenomenal little book packed with a lot of useful information for application and reflection. The whole experience while reading this book was meditative. I especially like the section of Nature Shrines, their relevance and how to use them. I recommend this book highly and look forward to obtaining the other

This bools sets out what the title says it is about. It causes mr to go deeper and bring more discipline to my spiritual practices. I gave 4 instead of 5 stars because it kind of left me wanting for more. This is not a bad thing but I just wish it were longer. However it is powerfully packed with pertinent info for daily living and communing with the inner spirit world of self.

This work is right on time. It gets right to the poing of the title. I have been waiting on our Afurakan spiritual leaders to get to delve deeper and get into this subject. Not only has the author obviously done so, but he gives us food for thought that has the potential to wipe the decades of ignorance and veils of darkness that have taken a hold of Afurakan spiritual traditions in America. This book removes the shackles that retard spiritual growth. It is time to start real dialogue and go beyond this routine spirituality that we find ourselves practicing today. I recommend this book written by a true Afurakan.

Root of Spirit is profound on several levels but one stands out to me. It gives people who think like me actual solutions. It is not a bunch of intellectual jargon stuffed into our brain. This book gives us real spiritual excercises that I personally have used and seen results from. All I can say is that I am very impressed (I am usually not easily impressed) and will continue to do the work this book suggests.

This ebook has wet my spiritual appetite causing a need to get deeper into our traditions of African religion and culture. My eyes are truly open now. I have a better idea of how to identify spirit versus something that is intellectually made to sound or look like it. "The Root of Spirit: Rediscovering the True Self" is a top notch spiritual tool guide.

I cannot thank you enough for your works. Though I have not met you (the author) I feel you speak directly to my soul and consciousness in your writings. Your works are what Afrakan tradition has been hungry for. Salutations of peace and power to you.

This book provides answers and spiritual productivity. I am so thankful and it succeeded my expectations big time. A lot of books are long and full of fluff. Every page of this small book gives me encouragement towards my real power.

I really like this booklet.

This is a powerful work which I can see expanding into something much bigger. Spiritual power is a reality that Afrikan people need to truly incorporate and this short book leads us to contemplate some serious questions about self. I am thankful for the author.
