The Spiritual Energies of Nature Orisha Community

"Life is a play – you decide, if you want to be the main actor, an extra or just a spectator"

We are the Spiritual Community of Orisha – energies of nature; we have been present in Slovenia for many years, but only recently, have we become publicly recognized. Our activities have grown beyond meetings in our flats, picnics in the countryside and passing our knowledge on to the nearest neighbours. The time has come when it is necessary for the knowledge about human life to become part of the basic education of the young and the old because it is never too late for wisdom and too early for happiness. What we worship is universal because the divinities of nature are universal. We call them Orisha – divinities, energies, that are manifested in nature and are part of human nature.

Living with values

Dear spiritual brothers and sisters, dear supporters!

 

Here is the programme for 2022. We look forward to being able to implement it in person regardless of the protective measures in place at the time. Our gatherings are priceless, and we often fail to realize their value until they are taken away from us. This is precisely why it is always worth making an effort.

As you all know, we managed to travel safely to Nigeria even in these still unpredictable times, and we are going to travel to Brazil as well. If there are even minimal chances for something to happen, the Òrìṣà open the door wide open. Àṣẹ!

All of the events will take place in Bizeljska vas or Groblje. Due to the specifics of the locations where our previous events took place (Podčetrtek, Vogel, Krka), only the priests will perform the offerings there, whereas the group worshipping will be a part of the festivals where we celebrate the Òrìṣà of life, the white Òrìṣà, and the Òrìṣà of fresh waters. All of the details regarding individual events will be sent to you in advance.

You are allowed and even encouraged to invite your family, friends, or anyone else who expresses an interest and is prepared to adapt to the programme and observe social, spiritual, and ethical guidelines at the events. 

We are overjoyed to inform you that in 2022, Bàbá King will hold four on-line courses open to the public in April, May, September, and November. You will be informed about exact dates and subjects in due time!

All the ọ̀sẹ́ and all the festivals are extremely important for maintaining spiritual well-being because they collectively satisfy spiritual and energetic needs of an individual and the community while offering a unique spiritual experience enriched with singing, drumming, and the blessings of materialized altars. These are all invaluable experiences we can never have when contemplating intimately in front of our personal altars. We extend gratitude to everyone who donate their time, wisdom, commitment, effort, and love for the common good.

 

Àṣẹ!
