In the realm of African spiritual pathways, no tradition is so widely embraced and practiced as the West African religion Orisa. Awakened by her own spiritual journey, Tobe Melora Correal, an initiated priestess in the Yoruba-Lukumi branch of Orisa, guides us along this blessed road. FINDING THE SOUL ON THE PATH OF ORISA provides a fresh look at these ancient teachings and emphasizes introspection and inner work over the outward manifestations of Orisa’s practices. Correal debunks misconceptions surrounding the tradition, drawing us into a lushly textured, Earth-centered spiritual system—a compassionate and useful roadmap for revering God.

A Compassionate & Practical Roadmap for Purposeful Living

Curious and not knowing what to expect, this book was my introduction to the Yoruba religion, “the science of allowing God to flow through you, so that each breath becomes a prayer, and as God breathes, you breathe.” I have only read Part I: A Yoruba Vision of God & Life, yet I can say for certain that this book is an answer to my heart’s prayer. The book is well written and the Author’s voice is so clear, it is as if she is in conversation with you. As the chapters unfold, questions are raised and answers are provided leaving the reader with a cellular level understanding of God’s plan for our lives. Some of the concepts have been appropriated by newer religions and sciences so it is wonderful to read the traditional teachings in their pure form, minus the disparaging fictional Hollywood fantasy of Africa or complete white washing that many religions require. If you’ve ever felt that Buddhism, syncretized Catholicism, the Black Pentecostal or white American churches were missing something, some intangible “thing,” this book will help you name it, and I suspect upon completion, it will help you move past it. The author, “titled this book Finding Soul on the Path of Orisa, and the word ‘finding’ is important and intentional. It implies that the soul, our deep spiritual center, is always present. We need only turn inward to draw on its power during our journey of struggle and transformation.”

Terrific information – great first step for the curious and serious

I really enjoyed this book – after finding out my ancestors were most likely from the Ivory Coast / Ghana (DNA testing) I began researching the paths of religion from that area. I was drawn to this book by recommendations from knowledgeable friends, and was not disappointed. I’ve learned a lot and feel more ready to continue my personal journey. Well worth the read – but more than that – take action after reading it!

Great book for beginning practitioner

This book answered so many questions for me about ifa and the Orisha. I definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in the Orisha, Yoruba, and ifa.

Excellent!

I recently awakened to the possibilities of other prospectives on the elevation of my spirit. “Finding Soul…” exceed my expections of what could be and what truly is. I have read this book several times and each time, my spirit is feed. Thank you for writing this book.
