The initiation ritual is designed to mark a milestone of your progress on the spiritual path of Ifá. In this beautiful seven-day ritual, you will be infused with the spirit and power of Ọ̀rúnmìla, the Òrìṣà of knowledge and wisdom. Initiation is a unique way to connect with your spirituality, reshape your religious perspectives, and to acquire a renewed sense of direction in life. You will return home refreshed with a new sense of purpose.
We offer two types of Initiation rituals: initiation into the Ifá Society or initiation into the Society of one of the other Òrìṣà such as Ọbàtálá, Ọya, Ṣàngó, Ògún, Èṣù, Ọ̀ṣun, Yemọja, Ẹgbẹ́, etc.
