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 Orixas. In Brazil, there are commonly between 20 and 30, including 16 basic ones, classified four by four according to the four Elements Fire Earth Water Air.

The Orixás are Energies, Forces and Laws active in nature. We humans are an integral part of this same Nature. This means that the Orixás that exist in outer Nature, also coexist in each of us. Our balance in our earthly existence is directly related to the quality of the relationship we have with these Orixás.

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.
