      The Nine African Spiritual Powers:The Major Orisha of the Yoruba
      Pantheon
      Saturday, April 25, 2009
      3:00-4:30pm

      The Yoruba spiritual tradition is arguably the most widely practiced
      African tradition on earth, estimated with over 6 million adherents.
      The religion revolves around the appeasement of spiritual forces called
      orisha, considered intermediaries of God. Explore the dynamic character
      and energy of nine of the most popular orisa in the Yoruba pantheon.
      These include Obatala, Eshu, Oshun, Orunmila, Shango, Ogun, Yemoja,
      Obaluaye and Osanyin. In this workshop we will take a closer look into
      these powerful forces.

      In this workshop you will learn about:
      Historical and mythological stories
      Foods and offerings of the orisha
      Natural habitat of the orisha
      Characteristic of the orisha
      Healing power of the Orisha
      Contrasts between Orisha in Africa and Diaspora
