Oshun’s presence makes everything brighter, more beautiful, more wondrous, and Her laughter is intoxicating as She invites us to dance to Her sacred drums and surrender to all the pleasures of life well-lived.
Oshun’s name means “source” – She is the source of the river, of the people, of children, of life, of the very blood of life itself. As the youngest Orisha, Oshun quickly demonstrated that She was intrinsically linked with all life. If Oshun withdraws from our world, life is over – Her elemental power as the source of Sweet Waters on Earth (the fresh waters) makes life possible and preserves life for creation. Oshun is specifically the source of feminine power and the source of women’s intrinsic creative power. All that we are in the embodiment to create, sustain, and bring forth life falls under Oshun’s purvey.
Oshun is very near and dear to my heart as I am a Lukumi Aborisha (initiate) and Daughter of Oshun. I am DELIGHTED to welcome Guest Priestess Yeshe Matthews from Mt. Shasta Goddess Temple who is also a Daughter of Oshun!
Join us on Wednesday, May 13, at 4pm eastern for an enlivening discuss and meditation on the Orisha Goddess Oshun!
