SAVE THE DATE Conference 2015 v2

The 18th Annual International Orisa Conference will be held on Friday, October 30, 2015-Sunday, November 1, 2015 at the Hudson Valley Resort and Spa in Kerkonshon, NY. Each session will be 1 hour. Presenters should leave ample time for questions. Researchers wishing to present should include case studies and abstracts involving their studies, if possible. The Theme for this year:

“Water + Iron: Sacred Feminine & Masculine Energy in Yoruba Cosmology”

Description of the Conference: Via interactive workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and performances, we explore cultural and spiritual elements/tools that mirror and instruct us on the nature and function of feminine and masculine energy in Yoruba cosmology, philosophy, ritual, and life.  Through close reflection on aspects of our tradition, such as Odu, Ayan/Anya, Gelede, Ifa, Iyami, Aje and elements of nature, primarily Water and Earth, that are considered to perform feminine functions in the creation of Life and Ritual, we hope to deepen our collective relationship to and understanding of sacred Feminine and Masculine energy. In keeping with a major organizing principle of Yoruba spiritual practice and social mores, Balance, we consider the nature and function of the Feminine in the context of constructive relationship with the Masculine in our tradition.

Registration Details will be posted soon!
