About the Event
Before we enter the world of the Orisha’s we need to discuss our Egun and Bobo Egun- Spirits and ancestors. On this first day of the workshop you will be learning about your spiritual quadrant, how to set up a spiritual altar for your ancestors and how to bring them light with prayer and music, and how to communicate with them directly.
Elegua/Ogun/Ochosi/ Osun: Get acquainted with the warriors. The warriors are the very first Orishas that any initiate receives. They are exactly what we call them “the warriors”, Osun watches your back, Elegua opens your paths, Ogun fights your battles and Ochosi maintains justice. In this workshop we will discuss different ways of honoring these Orishas.
