Ile Orunmila Oshun Services, Sun. 9/27

Members of Ile Orunmila Oshun (Temple of Luisah Teish in the Yoruba tradition of Orisha worship) will be gathering at TSW this Saturday, 9/27 at 11 AM to conduct their monthly Temple Service. This month's service is in honor of Aganju, Father of the Volcanos.

Temple service provides a space for friends and members of Ile Orunmila Oshun and our wider community to learn about the Orisha and worship together. Each month has teaching on a different topic.

To the Yoruba, as is true for most indigenous traditions, the ancestors play a vital role in the health and well being of the community. As we near the Fall season, we honor our ancestors for guiding, protecting and nurturing our spirits and homes. This temple service will focus on the role of the egungun masqueraders and their role in village life. Please bring a picture of a revered ancestor or an object that symbolizes your ancestors to put on the altar.

Join us for a powerful, practical service that will help you better navigate the volcanic activity of change that this time of year brings us all.
