Conversation on Ifá/Òrìṣà traditions with Olúwo Fálolú Adésànyà and Family

September 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Ifá/Òrìṣà tradition is the mostly widely practiced traditional African religion on Earth with millions of devotees in Nigeria, Togo, and Benin as well as in the African Diaspora (e.g., Cuba, Brazil, Trinidad, United States). It’s with great happiness that I share the opportunity to learn directly about Yoruba culture and spirituality with visiting elder Olúwo Fálolú Adésànyà Awoyadé from Òdè Rẹ́mọ, Ogun State, Nigeria. Since 2013, I (Daniel Foor / Ifábòwálé), have been blessed to make four trips to Nigeria to train with Olúwo, and we are honored to host this esteemed babaláwo and Yorùbá traditionalist here in the United States for the first time.

In this second online teaching and discussion (I forgot to record the first, sorry o) participants can expect to leave with a deeper appreciation for the foundations of Yorùbá traditions both in West Africa and the Americas. This includes understanding challenges faced by Yorùbá traditionalists who are working to preserve their language and indigenous ways of life. There is no cost to join and the recording of the call will (actually) be available for playback in the archive of past talks. Also, Oluwo’s wife and eldest daughter who are also traveling with him will be a more active part of this conversation!
