Saída Olubajé de Obaluaiê

In honor of Obaluaiê we will organize a Camarinha and a public celebration. Obaluaiê is an Orixá who is very attached to the power of change. Very earthly and earthy, similar to what we experience here in the fall. Related to life cycles, matters of community belonging are also often addressed here. Obaluaiê is strongly connected to our Pretos Velhos entities and acts as an old wizard between death and life.

Saída Águas de Oxalá

At the beginning of the year, many Terreiros in Brazil celebrate the ritual "Águas de Oxalá". The purpose of spiritual purification at the beginning of the year, practiced differently here in Europe according to an ancient tradition, is only part of the focus of this celebration. This ritual is also a recounting of an ancient myth, a story of love and balance between father and son; and so metaphorically between order and law, on the one hand, and devotion and blessing, on the other.
