Nan Domi An Initiate s Journey into Haitian Voudou The best thing about this book is that it was not written by a white American but by an actual Afro Haitian Another great thing about this book is that its important message was About Developing Spirituality Something A Few Of The White American developing spirituality something a few of the white American it alls tell you is not the purpose of Vodou Also the author does not bother to shame the reader to stop appropriating other people s cultures something most white Americans do when they decide that Vodouisant is their new adopted religion for that moment I plan to read this again some time soon I hope Beauburn writes I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This book is a story of spiritual progress in the style of Carlos Castaneda This book seems somewhat dry compared to other spiritual tales such as Way of the Peaceful Warrior A Book That Changes Lives or The Alchemist Additionally the freuent use of non english words hurt the book s flowI didn t find much I could adapt to my own practiceThis could be due to my own impatience The author seemed to be genuine and underwent an impressive ourney My assumption is that this book could be excellent in the hands of a patient reader First let me say thank you for I won this book through First Reads I have been interested in various spiritual beliefs for uite a while I m curious about different belief systems that are outside of the big ones Growing up I was always afraid to even think
about what other religions or spiritualities consisted of or believed because I was always taught that everything else was evilwhat other religions or spiritualities consisted of or believed because I was always taught that everything else was evil satanic and that I was going to go to hell for even thinking about them I have grown in many ways and now have come to understand that there is much to learn about ourselves and the world around us simply by understanding other belief systems This book was truly fascinating It helped to remove and correct many of the notions that I had about Voodoo I was truly ignorant but not so much that I couldn t understand that there was to it than I assumed and that it was not evil I found that Mimerose Beauburn did a wonderful Grace Hopper and the Invention of the Information Age (Lemelson Center Studies in Invention and Innovation series) job of drawing me into the concepts and explaining them in a way that made it easy to understand It also made me stop and consider my own beliefs and my own approach to the. Like all the great religions Voudou has an external public practice of rituals and ceremonies and also an internal mystical dimension Before Nan Domi works about Voudou have concentrated on the spectacular outward manifestations of Voudou observance hypnotic drumming and chanting frenetic dancing fits of spirit possession But practically all reports on Voudou are outsider accounts which means that they are stop. World around me I could also sense that she learned a great deal than she expected when she began herourney to write about Voodoo Thankfully she was provided access to the internal reality of Voodoo not ust what others can plainly see from the outside looking in Thanks so much Read this in the original FrenchBeaubrun who had been writing an anthropological text on vodou lost all her papers in flood she re wrote the text from memory in a trance while also practicing dream analysis Her conclusions give great insight in the practice of vodou from a place of profound engagement without the usual sensationalism associated with vodou Her sources are mostly elder mambos women priestesses who aid her in transcending her intellectualism to understand the heart of vodou and in the process the heart of humanity and the mysteries Beaubrun is the lead singer of the rasin band Boukman Eksperyans Worth a read Nan D mi is Mimerose Beaubrun s fascinating first person narration recounting her study of and initiation into Haitian Vodou What began as a doctoral thesis in anthropology on the lakou became the detailed description of Beaubrun s reaching with Aunt Tansia as her primary mentor the state of lucid dreaming Nan D mi
