Alaafia, I have a question for those involved in the Orisa/Ifa tradition, especially those who are initiated: What kinds of rituals or practices do you recommend in order to facilitate growth, spiritual and self-awareness, and understanding of egun and orisa and how they work in one's life. I ask this question because it seems like there is very little, from what I have seen, instruction on how to develop spiritually within the Orisa/Ifa tradition. It seems that more attention is directed to receiving orisas or going through ceremonies than on how to become better and more self-aware people. Christians read and study the Bible and go to church...Muslims read and study the Quran and go to the masjid...Buddhists and Hindus meditate and chant...so what do Orisa worshippers do? Thanks in advance for your responses.
