Hello,

I recently joined your forum and currently live in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. I was wondering if you could recommend a Babalawo in the DC metro area to perform an Orisha divination for me. Additionally, I would like to become actively involved in the Orisha community but unfortunately have had no success locating any contacts. To date, my experience has been limited to only self study. I'd appreciate any assistance.

Thanks for the response. I did find the website and am reviewing the info posted on their site now. I'm going to plan on attending their next service. Once again, thanks.

Wink
Alaafia !
ITs good to know that your getting there with them.

Learning the hard way, I have found that the ones that you actually meet and greet, are ultimatly the only ones who are gonna be there for you when you experience the tramatic events , the spiritual intrusions:
http://www.church-of-the-lukumi.org/intrusion.htm
Akakanika, akakanika,alakankanika,alapasapa-ijaka'lu ( from ose tura praise names for esu/warriors self defense so to speak!).......for example:
I was assaulted today!! I used my Tia Chi to get away almost unharmed....and whom did i call after the 911? Who was there for me , as in 10 yrs ago, and 21 yrs ago and so on and so forth????
Only my connection with ile Fatunmise !!!!! ( i.e. Cultural Expressions) and their extended families!!!{ AWO STUCY CENTER)
http://www.cultural-expressions.com/ifa/odu/osetura.htm
Im only putting the links here to back up what im saying to authenticate it in a tangable form with more than just words. Those are the ones you wanna get down with! I'm a volunteer at the red cross....and the ammount of distress and inordinate character manifest by some so called spiritual practicioners ; has lead me to this conclusion and fork in the road!
Besides i dont like to play mind games! ( i.e. Chess Anyone ) and considering the state of perpetual denile, rebuttal, and rebuking on the internet: I have found that those whom really care ,those that really are there to help you when your under attack, in a jam.......or jello for that matter, cause JAM dont shake like that!!!!! The ones that matter are your true friends and they dont make yah cry! Those peeps at Washington have demonstatrated to me just by their willingness to it least listen to my stress....have given me confindence in recommending them, as having print copied all their materials even their ifa course. They are sorta different than Ile IFA to a certain degree, but thats a matter of personal faith and choice and cultural anthorpology perhaps dictates the current environmental conditions and factors which set it apart from the usual unusal ....
Shocked Im quite sure they will not hurt you and help you to stay outa harms way and not just give lip service to it!!! My older elders, of my choice are quite strict about behaviour and supporting aleyos and aborisa.
Personally form me to you to a degree i see ifa as ifa . And try to find similarities, but the lack of integrity amongst the bloggers is ruining the community. There's alot at that site which is like a light in the darkness, especially when they were doing the weekly readings and messages for its ile community. AGAIN prayer and devotion is the key not playing make believe, or blog slapping someone and making a public spectacle of it.
ILE IFE translates as unconditional love...something in this generation of PRiesthood has fallen into disrepute mainly due to the internet m.o..
Being a network specialist , and volunteering for the REd Cross....im quite bold in these suggestions....cause honestly.....If i wouldnt trust them enough to be able to handle the sick, the poor and the homeless...without divine, gentle wise good character IWA PELE......if i wouldnt or they wouldnt(red cross) want them around........then NEITHER DO I. Those are the ones whom can teach you, those are the ones whom can really elevate you.
Not leave you in the dirt after a foribale on the net!!!! OR in person!!!
So here's some extra ice'n on the cake, remember the best cake you can bake is the one you MAKE for yourself!
Your elders willl help you in the finish ( i.e. icing and that blasted pipe'n bag!!!) Theres more than one way to decorate a cake.
A tree has roots, and a trunk.......and then there are the branches.
Chango comes down the way he comes down!!!!
( theres a simple metaphore in here!)
BE careful when the lightning strikes with a blinding flash of illumination!!!!
Con la benidcon de todos....
Se alaafia ni abures emi......
