There are two new class opportunities coming, one in December and one in January. All classes are online. We use as our classroom platform. Please consider the following courses. [All times are Eastern Standard Time — please adjust accordingly for your own time zone.]

 1. Odu Lecture Series

 This class begins on Tuesday, December 1, 2015. The time is 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM EST. I have 7 seats open. It is a unique concept in lecture. There are two sister classes running on Mondays, one at 7:00 PM and one at 9:00 PM. Each of these three classes studies the same odu each week. Each class will have a unique focus: interpretation through proverbs, interpretation through patakís, and interpretation through orientation (general, iré, and osogbo). One class each week will focus on pulling the “tonti” interpretation together while two classes will focus on the actual composite. Various topics of Lucumí ontology will be presented: spiritual principles born, philosophy, material manifestations of odu, and ebó. Students in any of these three classes will get 1 ½ hour of live lecture (plus a recording of their lecture) and 3 hours of recorded lecture (the material studied by its two sister classes). This provides 4 ½ hours of instruction on each odu studied.

 The cost: $300.00 for 16 weeks of lecture, or $150.00 for 8 weeks of lecture. Yes, since this is a new class beginning December 1st, a $100.00 non-refundable deposit will hold your seat.

 Starting December 1st, a lecture schedule will be available for all three classes. The lecture schedule will be distributed on December 1st to all three sister classes.

 Please email me at for registration. Payment for all classes is made by invoice through PayPal.

 2. The Basics of Lucumí Divination

 This class begins on Wednesday, January 6th, 2016. The time is 6:00 to 7:30 PM EST. This is a new course. Its goal is to teach both the casting of obi (obi agbón, the coconut oracle) and the casting of diloggún. Basic obi interpretation is included in this course; however, basic diloggún interpretation is included in another course to be announced at a later date. The cost for this class is $250.00. Although the class does not begin until January 6th, 2015, registration is open now. A non-refundable $50.00 deposit holds your seat (seating is limited – please apply early) with the remainder due when class begins.

 Please email me at for registration. Payment for all classes is made by invoice through PayPal.

 I hope to see everyone in class soon! Openings in current courses will be announced soon! Please subscribe to my blog and my Facebook page to remain updated on current offerings.
