Finding Soul on the Path of Orisa
A West African Spiritual Tradition
by Tobe Melora Correal

Finding Soul on the Path of Orisa Many people have felt drawn to the Orisas, to the religious traditions that honor them, and to the new and different spiritual meaning that they can offer. But entering an Orisa path can be difficult, even just finding the entrance can be a challenge.

In Finding Soul on the Path of Orisa, Correal helps the reader start at the very beginning, without confusion or worry. She immediately invites us into her own experiences, sharing tales from childhood and demonstrating her humanness. She treats the reader tenderly, with the understanding that stepping onto a new religious path can be daunting. She examines the rules and restrictions of Orisa practices that sometimes put people off, and shows us that the discipline involved is ultimately of great reward. This warm welcome may make the difference for a beginning Orisa practitioner, and it truly sets Correal's book apart from many others.

Several major aspects of Orisa practice are discussed, including ancestor reverence, finding one's true path in life, making a commitment to one's spirit and to God, and making the big decision to move on to initiation. Through the course of the book Correal never veers from her underlying message of loving oneself and having faith in divine spirit. Although the privacy of traditional rites is respected, Correal does share ideas for doing ritual work at home, in a solitary way, until a new practitioner has the opportunity to join an Orisa community. She shares comprehensive directions for working with the ancestors, and her insights into living a life of spirit are wise and helpful.

This is not a book about the individual Orisas, nor is it a guide to simply incorporating Orisa concepts into an eclectic practice. This book is intended for the person who is considering an Orisa path exclusively, or for one who has already decided on it. It is also highly recommended for those who are entirely new to Orisa, if they would like to learn more about what is entailed in Orisa religions. The kind and strong words of Correal, priestess of Yemaya, will enrich anyone's spiritual life.
