Roan Kaufman, Shamanic Practitioner
« on: April 13, 2019, 06:38:44 pm »
Someone recently posted this flyer in a Milwaukee Native Happenings group on Facebook, and I noticed all types of red flags. Since it's being presented as Indigenous healing, and the high price tag for registration, and the fact I never heard of the guy. Upon doing a Google search it looks like a Jewish guy who specialized in dating books now is pursuing the latest fad with shamans and Ayahuasca.

From the poster: "This ritual is offered in the spirit of Sobonfu Somé who taught the Dagara grief ritual for many years in the United States before her death in 2017."

The forum has a thread abut Sobonfu Somé and her once husband Malidoma Somé:

My bolding. That's for certain! A few links, starting with his Ph.D. dissertation and a related book:

Using ayahuasca to change the world? Roan Kaufman believes it is possible in his NEW book Ayagogy. He interviewed with DMT and ayahuasca experts such as Rick Strassman, Alan Shoemaker, and Rak Razam.

"Ayahuasca ceremonies as an educational model is able to help adults learn profound lessons about themselves, and then apply these lessons to living a more purposeful life."

My bolding. Alan Shoemaker: http://www.newagefraud.org/smf/index.php?topic=3015.0
