Journeying with the Mothers
I am new to the world of the Mothers as a conscious awareness. However when I was introduced to them formally by my Iya (Yeye Ifadoyin Oyinlola Aduke’) they definitely resonated with me. Since that initial introduction and first stages of training to become a Priest and now in this first year of being an Initiated Priest of Oya and Osun, I have had a few direct experiences with the Iyami which I will share in time. As I am hearing stories of the Iyami, I am realizing that they have been with me for some time. I invite you to accompany me on this journey of learning, living and exploring the world of the Mothers.
“This will be an ongoing body of work that will no doubt continue to grow and expand in direct proportion to our studies and direct experiences with the Mothers...I hope you in-joy 🦋”
Iyami: Human, Ancestral, Primordial and Cosmic
My good Sisterfriend, Dr. Dawn Tafari (Published Author, National Speaker, HipHop Feminist, Aborisha, Omo Iyami) shared this article with me. It is the most succinct yet comprehensive I’ve seen to date. This Iya (Iya Ayele Kumari) breaks down categories of Iyami as well as dispels myths about our beloved Mothers. Please don’t hesitate to leave your comment for discussion or to just share.
Stay tuned for:
