[CANCELLED] Indigenous Practitioners Teaching an Intro to Ifá: Understanding Ori & Traditional African Spirituality Practices

  • Date: April 18, 2020
  • Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm

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.”
