Orisa are forces of nature expressed through the Ifa Orisa Spiritual tradition of West Africa. It is designed to teach individuals not just about Orisa and their qualities, but how to actually work with Orisa for spiritual awakening and empowerment in one’s life. This is a beginners course and open for anyone interested in deepening their relationship with Orisa. Each week, a different Orisa will be explored and the participants will engage in personal rituals and exercises to awaken those qualities within them. Beyond worship , this is about the inner work and transformation. While this course is taught by an Iyalorisa and Iyanifa, this course is not designed to replace the personal teaching of a god parent or lineage.
