An update on classes

It’s been a long time since I updated my blog; and for that I apologize. Life has been busy.

Emails come in on a weekly basis asking me about my current classes and schedules. I thought I’d take a moment to update everyone on what’s offered. Please note that all times are Eastern Standard Time.

Monday nights

5:00 P.M. to 6:45 P.M.: Basic Diloggún. This class is an introduction to the art of casting diloggún, and an intensive on tonti interpretation. This class is closed to new registrants.

7:00 P.M. to 8:30 P.M.: Advanced interpretation. This is a lecture series cycling over a four year period. Every week I present a new odu. It progresses through the 12 families of olodu in the order of ebó ate (1, 11, 2, 3, 10, 4, 8, 9, 6, 5, 7 and 12). As of 11/10/14, the class is focusing on Owani Ejila (11-12). We progress through each family numerically. All advanced interpretation classes study the same odu each week.

As always, I thank you so much for allowing me to teach you the mysteries of casting diloggún and interpreting odu.

One thought on “An update on classes

  1. The advanced interpretation classes are open to new registrants at any time; however, if you have NOT taken the basic interpretation class you must pass a proctored exam. Your final score must be 92% or higher to enter. Advanced interpretation classes are open to any student who HAS taken the basic interpretation class at any time. Thank you!
