Eleda.Org announces a new approach to divination classes, an introductory course to the Lukumí Dilogún oracle.

Unlike our full seminar, this class will be open to all Lukumí olorishas so long as they can verify their ordination status. It will help to promote a greater understanding of the oracle’s procedures, significance, and basic interpretation, and lay important foundations, especially for the younger olorisha to develop a better understanding of odu. This, in turn, will assist younger olorishas to better guide their ilé and godchildren. It will also pave the way for those who have taken our ordination seminar and are interested in taking our full Dilogún course.

If you are interested in partaking of this seminar, register as soon as possible. You must provide a minimum of two verifiable references that will confirm your religious status/ordination and their contact information.


Once you application has been approved, we shall send an email requesting a NON-REFUNDABLE $50.00 deposit, which will be deducted from your first month’s dues. Please make sure that your email address is entered correctly in the registration form. The deposit must be paid by August 15th. The request for the balance of the first month’s payment will be sent to all the participants the week before the class begins.

The deposit is payable through Eleda.Org’s “Seminars & Payments” section. We cannot guarantee a seat without a deposit. DO NOT POST YOUR DEPOSIT UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN EMAIL NOTIFYING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED TO PARTICIPATE.

Don’t lose time. Register today.

On the Orishas’ Roads and Pathways: Obatalá, Odúa, Oduduwá is the second in a collection of publications on Lukumí Orisha religion. Ramos has published many other works. His Orí Eledá mí ó . . . Si mi cabeza no me vende (2011), Adimú: Gbogbó Tén’unjé Lukumí (2012), and Obí Agbón—Lukumí Divination with Coconut (2012) have received much praise from the Orisha community. The first volume in this series, On the Orishas’ Roads and Pathways: Oshún, Deity of Femininity, laid the foundations for this volume on Obatalá and Odúa, which promises to engage the reader and promote necessary and meaningful discourse and consideration of important themes on the current state of Lukumí religion as it experiences its transition onto the stage of world faiths.

Eledá.Org Seminars

Ewé Osayín—Osayín, his gifts, and our relationship with them

Lecture 8: Herbs and the Odu Ejionle/Ejiogbe
Date: Sunday, April 8, 2018
Time: 11 AM to approximately 3 PM
Cost: $60 (in-class participation); $70 for Webex participants

Last day to register: March 31, 2018
For Olorishas Only.

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.

This lecture will discuss the proscriptions and prescriptions related with the Odu Ejionle/Ejiogbe 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 Ejionle/Ejiogbe 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 clicking the registration link and filling out the form. You must provide your full birth and osha names, date and place of initiation, 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 $40.00, NON-REFUNDABLE deposit using PayPal. The balance must be paid by April 1, 2018. Failure to do so could cost you your seat in the class and the loss of your deposit.

A new Cycle of Eleda.Org’s Video Dilogún Course begins in April 2018


Cost: $25 per class, payable in advance, on a monthly basis

If you have already COMPLETED Eleda.Org’s ordination course and have complied with all the requirements, you may register for the upcoming the Video Dilogún course.

If you have not completed your projects, hurry. The new class begins in April.

Before registering, be aware that this is not a short course. Contrary to the thinking of some olorishas, Dilogún is a complex oracle, and learning it is not a simple process. Be ready to commit for the long run or don’t register.

Comienza Marzo 7, 2018

El presente será un curso intensivo de Dilogún. Presentará al estudiante ante la materia y, a la vez, le estimulará a pensar e intentar aplicar el conocimiento adquirido a la vida moderna, de manera sensata y razonada, evitando el fanatismo que se deriva del desconocimiento y de la inescrupulosa manera en la cual algunos malemplean este valioso legado nuestro.

La presente clase requiere constancia y dedicación. Este curso no es para todo el mundo. Sólo deben aplicar aquellas personas que tengan un interés serio en el estudio de la materia y estén dispuestas a dedicar el tiempo que ésta requiere. De lo contrario, no pierda su tiempo ni tampoco el nuestro.

Todo aquel interesado en tomar la clase tiene que demostrar que ya conoce la mojuba estudiada en el seminario de iniciación. Se le pedirá que la recite, usando uno de varios medios electrónicos, lo cual se coordinará antes del comienzo de la clase.
