Description du produit

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 This is a must read for anyone interested in indigenous African Spiritual Traditions 7 juillet 2008

I have been an Orisha worshipper since 1993 and I was lead to the faith by Oshun (Goddess of Fertility and all the good things in life). I have rarely come across such a powerful book on the Orisha tradition. This book absolutely blew my socks off.
Correal's teaching joins the ranks of John Mason and Awo Falokun Fatunbi as a pinnacle body of work that Orisa devotees will read for generations to come! I was so impressed with the book that I have referred elders to read it. When I am blessed enough to have my own God children. I will make this mandatory reading before seeking out the path of spiritual development of Lucumi.
Most books that I read were fluff, magical, and Hollywood mysticism. The many books on Orisa worship do not do the faith justice and keeps it shrouded in veil of mystery and occultism that keeps the religion in the dark ages. The most insipid effects of those types of writings can often lead to the misconception that all things African are evil and nonsensical. Anyone who knows anything about African religion knows that there is popular belief in Western culture (spawned by racism) that Vodun and Santeria are somehow related to satan worship. What most do not know is that Africans only believed in a Supreme being and the devil is not viewed as a polar and equal opposite. In some African faithes, the Devil did not exist at all until the influence of missionaries who brought evil to the continent.
Correal's substantive writing on the subject of egun (ancestral worship) and Orisa begins the revelation of truth about African religion as a valid and beneficial path to spiritual liberation. She also reveals some of the important rhyme and reason behind these all encompassing aspects and concepts of the faith.
Correal gets to the core of the faith which is development and evolution of mankind. I won't give the whole book's contents away but, suffice it to say that anyone who purchases it WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT REGRET IT.
ALL I can say to Correal is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A beautiful work. 1 février 2009

Note to all readers, this is not a "how-to" manual on working with the orisha. There are few specifics, and the reader is meant to already know these specifics. If you do not know, the book says rightly to find an elder or use one of the books in her reference list. That said, it is a beautiful and necessary book for all orisha worshippers. As the author writes, in trying to be our highest selves, the best "we" we can be, we may at times fall down. But in the trying, the effort, getting up off the mat, we crown our heads.

Working with the orisha takes daily effort, and is not something we can do by rote. We cannot sit on the couch and watch TV and ask the orisha to do all of the work in our lives. We must become clean, clear vessels for the sacred ashe to flow through. That sacred ashe flows through all things, even those whose outward appearance may be one we may not like.

The author also provides some wonderful advice on working with our ancestors, the egun. While other authors proscribe specific rituals for this work, Tobe reminds us that this is spiritual work that does not mix well with "going through the motions". She gives you general ideas, and encourages you to find your own rituals for working with your ancestors. And for those of us who've had "issues" with our ancestors, she understands more than the reader might have guessed. The topic of ancestor relationships is tackled with grace and humility.

This is not for the beginner; if you seek specific information and patakis regarding the orisha, I recommend Baba Raul Canizares' works on them. However, if you are already on the path, and seeking more information on how to incorporate the orisha and their divine ashe into your life, this is a wonderful book on the topic.

This book answered so many questions for me about ifa and the Orisha. I definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in the Orisha, Yoruba, and ifa.

The author hit the mark like Ochosi the hunter that never misses! Few books have made an impact on my life, and I must add this bookbl to that list. My connections with the Orisha and my Egun have been strengthened as a result of this book. What I found most profound is how she showed the path to finding reverence in all things. Asé & Aalafia!!!

I recently awakened to the possibilities of other prospectives on the elevation of my spirit. "Finding Soul..." exceed my expections of what could be and what truly is. I have read this book several times and each time, my spirit is feed. Thank you for writing this book.
