Traditionally, African people have existed close to Earth, earning their livelihood from the soil. This fact is evident in their unique "earthy" spiritual beliefs.
The author, born and bred in Africa, gives first-hand explanations and interpretations of most traditional beliefs, lifting the veil and recognising the similarities between West and East, where they meet in Africa. Some aspects that the book looks at are fortune-telling and healing, and the exercises show the reader how to use the environment to find ways to harmonise modern urban life in a practical way. It also makes connections with the more conventional Western ways of divining, such as astrology and tarot, bringing clarity and understanding to a tradition that to date has been unexplained.
