Conversation About Ifa

In this video, I speak about the experiences people have with certain “Orisa Houses” and how they teach. I tackle the question, “Can you really learn by just observing and not asking questions?”

As always, if you have a question related to Itefa or any other Ifa/Orisa related topic, please feel free to ask me via your comments or email.

  1. Chief Awodele Ifayemi,

    I appreciate your use of odu in your articles, and that’s something I desired/desire to do, but some practitioners of the Isese version of Ifa claims odu is not supposed used in that manner. It’s claimed that to use it in that fashion is like using it like biblical scripture. What’re your thoughts on this?

      Thank you for your visit, and comment.

      I respect the position of Awos who claim that Odu is not to be made accessible in a public venue. I also do not publish Odus that because of their nature cna be very destructive in the hands of immoral individuals.

      Odu is the vessel of Olodumare’s knowledge and as such, many of them serve to teach and guide us. It is those Odus which I chose because they help give validity to the point I’m trying to make via the Articles I publish.

      Again, thank you for your visit and comment.
