Sometimes we find we have gone through a profound rite of passage or initiation yet have come out wanting to deepen our knowledge along the path without the opportunity.
The reasons are many, and this is why Chief Awodele Ifayemi is always available for personal training in various aspects of Ifa and Orisa culture as well as for people wanting an introduction to African spiritual practices.
This is the only program currently online designed to teach everything you need to know in order to interpret Odu Ifá, and solve your client’s problems permanently.
You will have direct access to our expert Oluwo via private one-on-one sessions where you are given the opportunity to ask any questions related to the course material.

The approach we will follow is one that first looks at the essence of the Odus. By this, I mean that each Odu addresses a particular area of life, and by studying the main message of the Odus one can quickly ascertain the “root” cause of the problem or problems experienced by your client. After this, it becomes easy to memorize the details of each Odu.
Part I Of Ifa Training
We will start with the 16 Mejis. These are the “parents” of all the 240 Odus which are formed via combinations of the Meji Odus. Learning Odu is a life-long endeavor undertaken with great love by many dedicated Babalawos. The best we can hope to accomplish via this course is acquiring a sufficient understanding of each Odu in order to accurately perform Dafa.
Divination is at the center of all Ifa activities, and it is the Babalawo who is responsible for performing such divination.
As we take each Odu, we will study its genesis and related stories in order to understand which area of life the Odu is focusing on. Therefore, the Babalawo will immediately recognize the area of life the client is currently having issues with. This is extremely important to know; a well studied Babalawo can often counsel individuals by pairing their issues with an Odu which covers their troubles to the extent of even prescribing a proven solution.
Twice a month we will hold a one-on-one session via Skype. During this session, you will be able to talk about anything related to your studies as well as the lesson you are currently on.
You will be responsible for studying and memorizing the Odus and I will be responsible for helping you learn how to decipher and interpret them.
Part II of Ifa Training
Part two covers the combinations; a total of 240 Odus will be studied using a western perspective to facilitate their understanding and interpretation. This course uses the principles of the Opon Ifa as a framework upon which to study each of the 256 Odu Ifa. The Opon Ifa is “The Bridge Between Heaven and Earth”. The Opon Ifa principles are omnipresent and operate in a reading even if there is no physical Opon-Ifa present. Understanding the Opon-Ifa will give you an insight into human behavior, and daily challenges.
Each quadrant of the Opon-Ifa focuses on the day-to-day challenges of the human experience. The Odus associate which each quadrant of the Opon-Ifa reveal the patterns of human consciousness and help us understand destiny and the purpose of life here on earth.
Part III of Ifa Training
If you are looking for a course that will empower you with the knowledge to perform Ifa divination like a seasoned Babalawo, then this is the course you have been looking for.
It teaches you the process of casting Ifa as well as determining the root cause of your client’s problem, and how to determine what you need to do to solve those problems.
Part IV of Ifa Training – The Advance Series
The Advanced Training Series prepares you to solve your clients’ problems by teaching you the secrets revealed only to fully initiated Babalawos in good standing.
There is a separate part of this course of study, and this one covers the “secrets” of the Odus. This course covers the Orisas, Ewe and spiritual works called for by each Odu related to this quadrant.
These are the “magical” formulas hidden within each Odu which is only transferred from mouth to ear. You will learn the ewe (herbs) prescribed to each Odu, and how to use them for the application of “Akose” or spiritual medicine.
This is where the Babalawo shines; this is the knowledge that separates neophytes from adepts. Due to the high potency of this knowledge, this information is only given to those who have completed the first part of this training.
During this course of studies, you will learn the secrets of Ebo Riru. You will learn about Adabos and the different offerings made to certain spiritual energies to achieve for the client their individual needs. I’m sorry for being so vague about this but I hope you understand.
Everything you need to know about the consecration of Orisas, conducting rituals and Ifa Medicine is delivered via this course.
