The Way We Heal is a play about a process of self realization which can be painful as it demands change, acceptance and growth from within. African spiritualism has always had a negative impact. Throughout history the diviners have always been portrayed as being head shrinkers, negative beings that are primitive. These negative interpretations in the media and books, only offer a one sided rendition of the African medicine, an inaccurate portrayal of wise and gifted healers. Instead of accepting and embracing this ancient culture of spiritualism, urban people choose to accept these uninformed interpretations of the truth thus limiting spiritual growth. The very same westernized figures ignore the fact that these are actually the new age root healers and they have a unique ability to interpret universal information. Soul guidance is directly related to the roots of Africa.
