    ~~~Divination and Conjuring~ Chief Luisah Teish~

    in Spirituality

    Luisah Teish is a storyteller and author, and priestess of Oshun, the African Yoruba goddess of love. She is also on the faculty of the University of Creation Spirituality and a board member of the Association for Transpersonal Psychology. Luisah is author of Jambalaya and Carnival of the Spirit.
    "Our ancestors sat beneath the full moon around a fire and explained the sacredness of life, nature, and spirit through the art of storytelling. Their stories provide the guidelines for inner peace, spiritual education, and communal action. The Aztecs told their stories through poetry that was born from a flowering need to express their soul. In the African Diaspora, myths and stories are housed in the body of cowrie shells, stones, seeds, and bones. When these are cast, the voice of the Divine is heard, and the community contemplates the mysteries of creation, applying to contemporary life the wisdom that emerges".
