Publisher's Summary

Two manuscripts in one audiobook:

  • Santería: The Ultimate Guide to Lucumí Spells, Rituals, Orishas, and Practices, Along with the History of How Yoruba Lived On in America
  • Orishas: The Ultimate Guide to African Orisha Deities and Their Presence in Yoruba, Santeria, Voodoo, and Hoodoo, Along with an Explanation of Diloggun Divination

Hundreds of years ago, the Yoruba people of Nigeria and West Africa were brought to America as slaves. Luckily, they successfully preserved their heritage and ancestral spirits by disguising their deities as Catholic saints. In secret, they worshipped. The result is the new-age religion known as Santería, a blend of Catholicism and African traditional beliefs.
 

Santería offers valuable and insightful information into the origins, beliefs, and practices of the syncretic Lucumí religion. This audiobook will teach you the remarkable secrets of the Yoruba people.
 

In Part One, you will:

  • Discover how to invoke the orishas and the seven African Powers.
  • Master the art of divination to foretell your future.
  • Never worry about negative and evil forces again.
  • See practical examples of how to use divine power to achieve your goals.
  • Learn the powerful spells and rituals the Yoruba use to channel their gods.
  • Master the use of ashé and iwa pele. 
  • Become a powerful child of the gods.
  • And so much more!

In Part Two, you will:

  • Learn how the Orishas came to be, starting with the source of all things - Olodumare
  • Discover which Orisha to call upon for specific circumstances
  • Find out how to praise and invoke the presence of the Orishas
  • Learn how to get divine answers for your heart's questions using Diloggun
  • Discover how to interpret the answers you get from Obi and Diloggun

Horrible to listen to

The mispronunciations are so egregious it’s disrespectful to the religion. Do not bother with this audio book.

This book went above and beyond all expectations!

This book went above and beyond all expectations! I simply wanted to educate myself a little on the Afro Cuban religion and found it so uplifting and inspirational, I am so looking forward to reading more books on the subject.

Fabulous book

I got interested in Santeria relatively recently. Any book on the subject deserved reading as there are not enough available info. The secrecy prevails. Read it to find out more.

t's SO INFORMATIVE

Oh my GOD, it's SO INFORMATIVE. It only covers the main Orishas, however, it's still very informative and as a beginner, I love it. This is a must-buy for anyone wanting to learn or dive into this religion.
