Introduction to the Orixás - Overview
The Universe
Throughout time people have always studied the Universe. In each culture, in each nation, there were people who recorded what they observed so that others could benefit from their understanding and knowledge.
Orixás are energy formations, or vibrations that form the fundamental structures of the universe. These energy formations can also be found on earth as well as within the human physiology.
In the past there were great Seers who perceived these energy formations and who showed others how to connect with the life nourishing qualities that these energies have to offer.
There are cultures and traditions that have kept alive this understanding of the Orixás and today this knowledge is becoming available to the American people. What will be our experiences? How will we integrate this knowledge with our scientific minds? What will we leave for the next generation?
