What Is Yoruba Religion?
The Yoruba religion also referred to as Ifá is a spiritual tradition that teaches self-empowerment via self-accountability. It is an understanding of ethics, a process of spiritual transformation and a set of scriptures that are the basis for a complex system of divination. The Yoruba people, are found primarily in southwestern Nigeria, commonly known as Yoruba Land.
Practitioners of this tradition believe in one God, the creator of all things. They believe that they can be guided by this creator via Divination. Depending on the gravity of their troubles a Babalawo, Iyanifá, Babalorisa, or Iyalorisa are the ones who are qualified to perform this service.
Babalawo and Iyanifá training as well as the training of Orisa Priest and Priestesses take many years to complete; making them the most proficient diviners. I dedicate this site to those seeking an alternative to dogmatic religion.

What Can I Do For You
Meet Your Oluawo
My name is Awodele Ifayemi and I’ve been teaching Ifá’s Spiritual Philosophy and Traditional Theology for over forty years. Before teaching full time I studied Ifá from age 5 to 25.
As a Babalawo it is my charge to share my knowledge of Ifá with whoever is seeking to find their “truth” in life.
One of the most important lessons I’ve learned over the years is that Ifá is about self-empowerment and growth.
The type of empowerment which one finds via Ifá, allows you to grow beyond your expectations. This growth is not about money or stature; it’s about spiritual growth. The kind of growth that helps you shine from within. It’s the kind of growth that keeps you feeling joyful and positive. The kind of growth that helps you shine from within.
It’s the kind of growth that keeps you feeling joyful and positive. This kind of growth is contagious and very attractive. As such you will find yourself surrounded by like-minded people and even people who will want to promote you so that others can benefit from what you have to share.
