An Understanding of The Ile Isin Abalayenifa Cultural Training Institute
Concern for the health of the individual, family and community is the heart of the Yoruba/Ifa way of life. It is through Ifa that we learn how to achieve and maintain harmonious relationships with all aspects of family and community. It is through Ifa that we learn how to achieve and maintain harmonious relationships with all aspects of our environment. This creates a condition of balance and blessing (Ire) that is ultimately passed from one generation to another. Many of the problems that plague our families are rooted in our disconnection from the original way of life of our Ancestors. IIACTI has developed in depth training programs that immerse the members in Yoruba language, protocol and rituals that provide the guidelines for healthy living and proper religious worship of the Ori, Ancestors and Orisas.
