The journey of sangoma initiation and the challenges faced in the process of ukuthwasa

People have different views about an ancestral calling, some embrace it while others forbid it. It can be the lack of understanding about it or because of their own beliefs. It's a journey of spiritual awakening, but it's often not easy to fulfill. Many turn to a Gobela or a teacher for help and end up being the victims of abuse.

Mandisa Komanisi (who is still in the process of initiation) and Yolanda Dandala (founder of Young Sangoma Empowerment) discuss their journeys of ancestral calling.
