Ade-Ife Party

I had the honor to celebrate with Iyalorisa Ade-Ife, Priestess of Oshun. She and her daughter Kemi are moving to Salvador, Bahia. I look forward to the day that I will be able to be there with her and study. Bahia is one of my favorite places in the world.

My long-term goal is for my husband and I to live there at least three month out of the year. I plan to facilitate healing retreats for women. I can see us now under the beautiful moon light on the beach… ahhhh…..
