Orixas & 4 Elements
Immerse yourself in the Afro-Brazilian tradition and experience Nature under its various Forces and Divinities of African origin: the Orixas!
According to Yoruba mythology, Olorum (God), as Light, has fragmented by crystallizing on Earth in the material.
Thus each element of nature is a fraction of the divine with its own qualities, and the totality of the manifestations of nature as a whole represents the divine.
Studying the specific characteristics of each Orixa allows us to understand the Wisdom of Nature.
In Africa, there are several hundred of Orixas. In Brazil, they are commonly of the order of twenty, the most important ones.
These Orixas being divine representations of Nature, it is possible to classify them according to the four constituent elements of Nature, namely Fire Earth Earth Air.
Four Orixas are attached to each element.
Discover all of these sixteen Orixas, understand how they organize themselves in a natural continuum through the four Elements, learn what wisdom of
nature they transmit and experiment their powers in dance.
