Présentation de l'éditeur

In the realm of African spiritual pathways, no tradition is so widely embraced and practiced as the West African religion Orisa. Awakened by her own spiritual journey, Tobe Melora Correal, an initiated priestess in the Yoruba-Lukumi branch of Orisa, guides us along this blessed road. FINDING THE SOUL ON THE PATH OF ORISA provides a fresh look at these ancient teachings and emphasizes introspection and inner work over the outward manifestations of Orisa’s practices. Correal debunks misconceptions surrounding the tradition, drawing us into a lushly textured, Earth-centered spiritual system—a compassionate and useful roadmap for revering God.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Destined to be a classic, a must read for all Aborisha!!!!!! 9 octobre 2003
Par El Brujo - Publié sur
I received this book during my "Iyaworaje' year in white, by one of my good friends and Abure "Spiritual Brother" within our Spiritual House. This book is one of the most important books on Orisha Spirituality. For the first time, the author does not reflect or even touch the subject of Orisha sacred items, numbers, and all that other stuff than is found in many Orisha books these days. This gem of a book reflects on starting to honor the Orisha starting from within. The book focuses on self-reflection, healing inner pains, honoring commitments, mindfulness, honesty, and other true wisdoms that our found in the teachings of religions such as Zen, Buddihsm, and Hinduism.
The book is written for the followers of the various Orisha traditions, but can be applied by any person no matter race, religion or sexual preference. There is a small section on Orisa Soul work, which again can be applied by anyone. A section on honoring ones Ancestors and creating a shrine for them.
A most beautiful, and well-written book that does not dabble, with silly "how to do magic spells" or superstitions. But instead teaches how to work with ones inner spirits, how to seek blessings from the divinities within, how to find peace through meditation with the mysteries of the Orisha tradition. This book is a basic fundamental to the truth, beauty and wisdom that lie within the Orisha tradition.
I have to highly recommend this book to all newly initiated Iyawo, it will bring deeper blessings and meanings to your first year in white. But I also have to recommend this book to all that are looking for their first book on Orisha Spirituality.
Bravo and Ashe! To you Iyalosha Omilade, "Tobe Melora Correal" your book is important, groundbreaking, and will be forever listed under the greats such as John Mason, Chief Fama, and Iyanifa Ileana

5.0 étoiles sur 5 restored my faith.... 30 mars 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur
this book is a great gift. i found it at a time that i had nearly lost all faith in the orisa community, especially the community in the united states. once i received this book i sat with it, touched its spirit and its spirit touched me. iya is grounded in her writing, honest in her sharing and clear about not only the beauty of this path but the challenges that can also accompany one's journey down this road.
i wish more authors wrote in this way - without pretense, without pomp and with clear hearts. this book has ase. it is real. it can communicate its purpose clearly without the weight of human ego all too often seen in what should be a road humbly walked.
in a moment when i was disheartened by what i've seen in the community this book gave me heart. it gave me enough hope to hold on and to allow the love for this road to reopen me to my own relationship with it. it has, in many ways, restored my faith. our community needs more books like this. it is like water in the heat of the desert.
thank you iya.
thank you ori.
thank you ancestors.
thank you orisa.
thank you olodumare.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Book that Goes Past the Mechanics 15 février 2005
Par Sahasrara Aten RA - Publié sur
Iya Correal's book is excellent reading for anyone on the traditonal path but wants to go past being just religious and on to intergrating their spirituality with growth as a human being. She gives insight on how to have a real relationship with our ancestors and the Orisa. The book is well written and encourages devotees to seek a deeper relationship with the Divine. I must say that Iya's book is one of those that I continually go back to when I am in need of rememberance of what magic truly is: that connection with the force that animates us and the world that we live in.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Spiritual, reflective book not technical 19 novembre 2010
Par dove777 - Publié sur
This is a decent book mainly looking at the more internal process of self-development on the path of Orixa. At times it skirts close to new-ageism and spiritualist type beliefs or statements but not so much that I cringed. However, hearing about the path of Orixa from a feminist was refreshing and interesting. I would not reccommend this book if you want detailed info about each Orixa, practises etc. This is not what this book aims to do. There is a good bibliography and glossary and interesting information about establishing an ancestors altar, how to maintain and feed the dead. This book is more about inspiration in practise and maintaing mindfulness and focus on this path.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Have for Your "Orisa Collection" 15 décembre 2004
Par Z. Holly - Publié sur
I bought this book several years ago, expecting it to be one way, but pleasantly finding it to turn out differently than I thought. I really enjoyed the section where Ms. Correal explained the importance of worshipping and communicating with our ancestors. Everyone in the religion learns that "eggun come before the orisha". Even those who are not in the religion should take heed to how important ancestor worship is to our lives. Our ancestors guide us, protect us, etc. and even more so if we simply LET THEM. I also enjoyed how Ms. Correal described the different "roles" that some people play in their casas (houses of Ocha worship) (i.e. little sister, gossiper, the jealous one, the favorite, etc.) I too, have always wondered about this (thought that this was just my perspective) but was pleased once I read Ms. Correal's opinions on how one's Ocha family can be just like a real family with its dynamics (and dysfunctions!)LOL

I think anyone & everyone who is either on the road to La Regla de Ocha or has already gone down this road should purchase/read this book.
