An exciting and refreshing new look at ancient Afrikan spirituality by young Vodunsi (West Afrikan Vodun initiate) Awotunde Zannu Faseyin Agbosi. This book is unique in it takes its reader through a pscho-spiritual initiatic process whereas one is taken from the psychological and historical circucmstances of Afrikans and their place in world religious history right into the esoteric and very valuable practical concepts of Vodun/Ifa. The author rightly notes that no respected people are a people who worship the gods of others. Iwakeri is concerned with guiding the Afrikan soul on its journey from Eurocentric religious thought in an attenpt to provide a smoother transition into being whole; to be Afrikan. Finally, Iwakeri is a much needed answer to the question of how do we approach the esoteric from an Afrikan, yet practical way. The preview below is the introduction to Iwakeri: The Quest for Afrikan Spirituality.
