April 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Due to the unfolding situation regarding COVID-19, this program will no longer take place as scheduled, but may be rescheduled. Future programming will be assessed on a rolling basis. Please follow our Facebook page for more updates and information. See our full statement here.


Ifá Gbure, a well-informed Ifá Priestess, will lead a discussion on the Ori, its origin, the necessity of Ori cleansing, and how Ori affects our destiny.

From Ifá Gbure: “The tradition of the ancestors is very special to me and I am committed to sharing the knowledge and understanding of this ancestral base practice, which is done through divination counseling and various ceremonies. My commitment is to create positive changes that lead to us meeting our highest destiny. Ase.”

FREE; registration required

Curated by Sappho Fulton, Indigenous Practitioners Teaching an Intro to Ifá is a series of three workshops that will take place at Bartram’s Garden in Spring 2020. You can read more here about Sappho and her work with Sappho and Laroyce Foundation, which works to “sustain visibility and holistic healing for LBTQ and Womyn of Color and achieve sustainable social, racial, economic and political justice through meaningful community engagement.”


This event will take place in a space that is accessible via wheelchair. ADA accessible bathrooms will be available nearby, as well. We’re happy to make accommodations for guests with mobility limitations. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out ahead of the event.
