Eledá.Org continues its monthly lecture series: Ewé Osayín—Osayín, his gifts, and our relationship with them
Lecture 7: Herbs and the Odu Obara
Date: Sunday, February 21, 2016
Time: 10 AM
Cost: $55 (in-class participation); $60 for Webex participation
We will be able to host twelve (12) participants via Webex. This possibility is reserved for those who live outside the South Florida area. All others must attend the session in person.
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 next lecture will discuss the proscriptions and prescriptions related with the Odu Obara and several of the Odu’s defense mechanisms through the ritual use of herbs and ebó ewé ní l’ara—ritual or purification baths, and other ritual and “magical” uses for herbs. 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 olorishas who have Obara 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’s “Seminars & Payments” section. The balance must be paid before February 7, 2016. Failure to do so could cost you your seat in the class and the loss of your deposit.
