Fasting Detox Cleanse and Renu
Fasting is as natural as sleeping. This is why we generally break our fast upon rising in the morning. It is a way to rest the body from overconsumption and as with sleeping gives it time to rejuvenate. This is part of a natural rhythm of life, which is done unconsciously. Choosing to fast outside of this sleeping pattern, however, gives the body a further chance to rest from consuming more food than the body naturally requires. The Nubia Pamper Cleanse and Renu Fasting Guide provides a basic introduction to fasting. It is a step by step guide to help you on your journey to reclaim your health and vitality by choosing a period of intermittent fasting.

The Ritual Art of Trance
Guyanese Komfa: The Ritual Art of Trance engages the Komfa perspective with the aim of locating strategies of cultural liberation. Formerly associated with the mammy water spirits from its ancestral roots in West Africa, Komfa was forced underground by British colonials who had likewise outlawed and discredited practices connected with Obeah. Practitioners absorbed some Christian aspects and identified a pantheon of spirits associated with Guyana’s historical formation, ensuring that Komfa is not forgotten despite ongoing cultural ambivalence towards the practice.
Using a multidisciplinary framework Michelle Asantewa explores questions of cultural identity and the ‘arts of imagination’ embedded in the Komfa practice. The theoretical body of the work is complemented by the inclusion of a novella called Komfa, based on the foregoing themes and issues highlighted in the overall text. This book contributes to the developing interest in African derived religious and spiritual practices, foregrounding Guyana which has largely gone unnoticed.
