    Ancestral Eyes S2 E4 welcome Andrea Savar, Mystic with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry!

    Bio: Andrea Savarwears many hats in this life including mother, gallery owner, jewelry designer, artist and author but the one that she says goes to her core is that of a practitioner in the mystical arts.

    Andrea’s learning began as a child with a family that nurtured all of their unique gifts in a tradition that combined the Italian ways with the Pacific Northwest pioneer life and Persian mysticism.

    The first lessons in the old ways took place in the garden, where plants and their magickal properties were passed down from one generation to the next. The language of gemstones is also part of an enduring tradition as Andrea was often swept away with the family in search of unusual gemstones and antiquities. Growing up with gem importers for parents and a gemologist grandfather, the songs and stories of each stone have been present since childhood.

    It is the deeply held belief that woven through story, ancestral food and connection to the land, the mystical life is one that is best when shared with others. This has led to the creation of a one-year course Andrea is teaching with the Inner Alchemy Collective delving into the ways that we can work with the plant world as we would with our ancestors.

    Published Works: The Curious Ways of the Winships, A Curious Spring Fever, The Curious Voyage of a Lost Soul, Evolutionarium – Air, The Curious Coloring Book – Faery Forest, The Curious Coloring Book – Mermaid Lagoon

    Education: BA in Foreign Language from Seattle University and L’Université Grenoble, BS in Mathematics from Seattle University, Post Graduate degree from Seattle Pacific University in Language Education. Reach her at http://www.andreasavar.com

    Ancestral Eyes S2E2 “ROUNDTABLE discussion” welcomes back Daniel Barreiro, (Bokonon Dafodji of Abomalé-Kpenglá Vodoun-Fá Community in Uruguay) and Oluawo Nelson Freire Ifabiyi, Ifaworld Conference !

    Ancestral Eyes S2E2 “ROUNDTABLE discussion” welcomes back Daniel Barreiro, (Bokonon Dafodji of Abomalé-Kpenglá Vodoun-Fá Community in Uruguay) and Oluawo Nelson Freire Ifabiyi, Ifaworld Conference with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean-Jerome C. Baudry (Awo Ifálọdún Akínyode, AP)

    Daniel is a Bokonon in the Fá Agbassá Vodoun-Fá line, initiated in Benin-Abomey 7 years ago, Writer and Cultural Advisor. He studied at the University of the Republic-Faculty of Psychology and is currently carrying out studies in a Bachelor of Anthropology-Archeology at the Universidad de la República, Faculty of Humanities and Sciences

    Our second special return guest is Baba Ifabiyi, Nelson Alvarez who was born in Habana Cuba and was initiated to Obatala and to Ifa by the customs of the Regla de Ocha-Ifa in Cuba 40 years ago. Baba Nelson later travelled to Mexico DF, Mexico where he became the Vice-President of the Sociedad Yoruba de Mexico under Leonel Gamez, Oshe Niwo. He later founded the Ifa World Conference, a nonprofit organization focused on research on the Ifa and Orisa practice from a Lineage in Lagos studying both the language, practice and customs and reconciling them with the Afro-Cuban practice. Ifaworld Conference has worked with the Consejo Cultural Yoruba de Canada and also the VODOUN-FA BOKONON ABOMALE-KPENGLA Community of Uruguay to also study and compare practices between Fa-Gbassa Vodoun Fa and Regla Ocha-Ifa of Cuba.

    Our discussion tonight will focus on the Spiritual Guide as seen from Fá Agbassá Vodoun-Fá and with commentary and comparison to Yorùbá Ifá-Òrìsà and Afro-Cuban Regla de Ocha-Ifa . We will look at the central role that the Ancestor or "Djoto/Guia Spiritual" plays in a person's spiritual journey or mission and how that takes shape in terms of the Yoruba concept of “Ori” and the Vodoun-Fá concept of the “Se”. We will also talk about the process of Ifá/Fá divination and the concept of the Ancestral Guide Divination. We will pull from both the historical, abstract and modern-day actual practice of these West African traditions as well as concepts that stem from Egypt and Mesopotamia.

    We will also talk about the Book "Noire" written by Bokono Dafodji, now on sale through the Consejo Cultural Yorùbá de Canada, at https://consejoculturalyoruba.ca/shop.

    Ancestral Eyes welcomes back Kabiyesi Ifagbemi Faseye Efunsola on Episode 33 of our show with special guest Gbolahan Macjob, journalist BBC World Service with your hosts Teresa Sliwinski and Jean- Jérôme C. Baudry!

    Our main guest:

    Kabiyesi Ifagbemi Faseye Efunsola talks about the Ifá-Òrìsà Indigenous worship and his 28 trips to West Africa including Nigeria, Republic of Benin and Togo for the purposes of initiations and religious study. On this special edition return show, he also announces his Oba Òrìsà Obatala of America title after all religious rights were done in Ile Ife by the spiritual Head of Obatala in Ife Obalesun.

    Baba Faseye began his formal, comparative religious study in 1998. For over 20 years now he has diligently served my community as a healer, diviner, educator, and steward of indigenous spiritual tradition.

    Before becoming a respected leader in the tradition, he underwent many years of study and practice as an Ifa priest (Babalawo), communicating with the Spirit of Destiny known as Orunmila in order to divine a person’s destiny and, when needed, make edits or changes to this destiny through ritual (or, ebo).

    As a leader within this culture and tradition, he also specialized in various other forms of divination such as mirror and water gazing, cowry divination and other mystical spiritual disciplines in order to assist devoted seekers to find working solutions to many of life’s various challenges.

    For more information on the Ifá-Òrìsà Indigenous worship and Baba Faseye's practice, please visit her website: https://oracleifa.com/

    Our second special guest: GBOLAHAN MACJOB is a Multimedia journalist at BBC World Service. He is an author and filmmaker. Being an Ifa devotee since 2014

Hey Magical Fam

So I love your show it has saved me in many ways, so many blessings raining from this show. I don’t know how long I have to be here, I feel really heavy and it feels very weird around me. I would like to say that one of my spiritual sisters would be perfect to speak in the show(Gogo Ekya, Sangoma healer in west). I would be open to share my story up to this point, and I would speak from my heart, I’m torn between being Bi polar and having a calling. It can be a ish show, but I try to stay in my heart as much as possible. And I think it’s vital to speak about the diaspora in americas too, Bc so many of us don’t make it to the other side, I’m blessed to be writing this. Lately I’ve felt like maybe people think I’m evil or dark, but I’m not sure, I just noticed that everyone distances themselves or disappear. I feel like sometimes when my emotions get to crazy, weird things happen, maybe I’m really crazy and everyone is just being “kind” 2 me, but there’s things that happened that I saw years ago, that’s happening now. I have deja vu that can be errie. I’m ok if this means I’m posssesed, and I’m open to getting healing, I’m open to all spiritual practices, i like any kind of healing that feels right. I haven’t committed a crime, or even thought bad thoughts about another, Bc I know that the mind is powerful, and usually when I speak sometimes it can be confusing, like when I say “Buddha rat”, I’m not talking about a snitch, I’m talking about spirit, how the rat people multiple no matter what you do, like the tiny frogs in Hawaii. Yea I know I sound wild and maybe insane, but I know the things y’all speak of is true, Bc I can feel it in my bones. Many blessings to y’all Bc it takes guts to speak freely about this, and I’m glad more people are, Bc I’m sure I’m not alone in the americas that get the shoe a lot, Bc people may think your being manipulative or crazy, and that’s why I try to bee clear wit folks too. Happy Chinese New Year! Omg that’s another fear I got from news etc, but that’s a deeper story. Real deep
