This series will help the serious olorisha to establish well-founded theoretical and practical perspectives and knowledge about herbs and their usage in Lukumí Orisha Worship.
Our first lecture will discuss the proscriptions and prescriptions related with the Odu Ofún and several of the Odu’s defense mechanisms through the use of herbs and ebó ewé ní l’ara—ritual or purificatory baths. Though the class will be vital for all participants interested in founding solid foundations about herbs and odu, this class will be of special interest to those olorishas who have Ofún as their guiding odu. Don’t miss it.
Space is limited so act quickly, but please do not reserve if you are not serious about taking the class.
All those interested in participating must send register by filling out the form available through ELEDA.ORG. You must provide your full birth and osha names, date and place of initiation, names of godparents, plus the name and contact information for TWO olorishas that can verify your status as an olorisha. References are a MUST. Without this verification, you CANNOT participate.
Once your information is verified, you will be asked to pay an initial $25.00, NON-REFUNDABLE deposit through Eleda.Org, using Google Wallet. The balance must be paid before September 30, 2012. Failure to do so could cost you your seat in the class and the loss of your deposit.
