Over a lively lunch, Bokara compares notes with West African healer Sibonfu Some and psychologist and author Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen on the importance of family, community and ritual in the healing process. Dagara tribal concepts of "wholeness" and "purpose" in life are discussed from both African and western points of view. How do emotions cause illness? How can broken families heal? What is the difference between approval and acceptance? Insights abound as host and guests compare the strengths and weaknesses of western and African approaches to healing, family and community.
