This workshop is open to people of African descent of all ages. This will be a safe space and Queer Black women are particularly encouraged to attend.
The workshop will cover in- depth, the understanding of Yoruba peoples of western Nigeria and Benin, West Africa. We will explore their ways of life, history and system of belief in relation to spiritualism in the world today.
Topics include different deities of the Yoruba and their special attributes as related to humans; their functions, powers and the significance of prayers to the deities.
Workshops will be in the form of spiritual circle with discussions on Orishas. (See attached flyer for full description)
