The Way of Orisa: Empowering Your Life Through the Ancient African Religion of Ifa
The Way of Orisa contains Ifa’s enduring message of strength and inner peace, one that offers a way to harmonise our spiritual and worldly aims, is enjoying a resurgence of popularity in the West. Written by an avid student and accomplished practitioner, The Way of the Orisa provides an exhilarating introduction to the orisa, the powerful messenger spirits who act as our personal guardians.
Through fables, rituals, prayers and simple guidelines, Philip Neimark shows how we can further our personal and professional goals by cultivating the loving support of orisa energy. Joyous, wise and eminently practical, The Way of the Orisa brings a vibrant ancient tradition to contemporary life.
A very good introductory book on Ifa and Orisha for the beginner. Particularly the sections on attributes of particular children of Orisha is very good, if over simplified. Neimark transmits his love and enthusiasm for the Orisa admirably, without adding the “spells” and spooky “Juju” other books find necessary.
