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.

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.

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

In the wake of Hurricane Irma’s passage through Cuba, we’re just now getting news of the devastation it has caused. The ferocity of this hurricane, combined with the amount of time it spent hovering over the island, made it the worst hurricane to hit Cuba in more than 100 years. Literally every province in Cuba felt the effect, with some of the central provinces seeing enormous damage. In addition to major flooding and high winds that destroyed buildings and private property, lives have been lost and many people were injured. Recovery has started, but Cubans are facing long power outages, shortages of food and water, empty shelves in the stores, and a scarcity of building materials for reconstruction.

Oloshas United is committed to our international Orisha community, and wants to reach out to help Olorishas in Cuba who experienced loss and damage to their homes and personal property as a result of Irma. Many of these people are in great need, and they don’t have insurance to cover the cost of replacing their homes and property. We’re particularly concerned about our religious brothers and sisters on the island, who are often among the most vulnerable members of society. Their lack of financial resources even in good times is heartbreaking to us who live in the developed world. In times of crisis, their living conditions deteriorate very rapidly. Let’s stretch out a hand to help them!

Our efforts to raise money for the Texas relief fund following Hurricane Harvey were very successful. We raised more than $4000 in a short amount of time, and were able to get money into the hands of those who most needed it right away.
No other humanitarian group focuses exclusively on OUR religious community. We need to look out for each other and help each other when disaster strikes.

While those afflicted by Irma in other areas of the Caribbean and the US have insurance to help them rebound, Cubans do not. Our donations will help those affected by Irma. Please make a tax-deductible donation today to OLOSHAS UNITED RELIEF FUND FOR CUBA by clicking on the link below. PayPal is the fastest and easiest way to donate money while ensuring your financial information and privacy as a donor are protected. Oloshas United is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization with legal recognition by the IRS. As such, we can legally send humanitarian relief to Cuba under section 515.575 of the Cuban Assets Control Regulations of the US Department of the Treasury. Your donation is legal, and much appreciated!

The following photos provide a heartbreaking look at the profound damage Hurricane Irma has inflicted on many families all over the island.

Oloshas United’s Texas Relief Fund Needs Our Help!

Good day!

While this weekend the rest of the country is celebrating this final reprieve before the onset of winter, there are those in Texas who are not spending it at the beach, by a pool, or preparing for a family bar-b-cue. Some of them are OUR people; Orisha devotees and followers of other African-based faiths.

OU has already received the support of many of you in our community and we appreciate the many donations from those who asked no questions other than “Where do we send our donations?” Thanks to you, we have already identified and assisted several families in distress. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Still, the job is far from done. Those who were affected by Harvey still need help. Other families have been identified, but the money we have collected can only go so far.

We need your help. Please donate to Oloshas United’s Texas Relief Fund.

Oloshas United is a 501c3 non-profit organization, duly registered with IRS. One hundred percent of the money you donate will go directly to the people in need, and your donations are tax deductible.
