As a practitioner of two African spiritual systems, I absolutely enjoy my practice. I encourage others who are drawn to these systems to see what they are all about. African traditional religions (ATRs) are vast and intricate systems that have been around for thousands of years and have stood the test of time. There are many wonderful benefits of embracing African spirituality. However, there are also a few drawbacks. 

Like any other religious or spiritual practice, African spirituality is not perfect. It is wrought with challenges and obstacles that anyone should consider before embarking on such a journey. In this episode, I discuss a few drawbacks of these systems from the perspective of a practitioner and spiritual coach. So, join me as I share some of the pitfalls of practicing African spirituality.
