Introduction to Conjure, Vodun & Ifa

September 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

$16

African diasporic religions, traditions and practices are alive and well in the South. From the religious practices of African slaves to traditions our grandmothers taught us, the practice of conjure and hoodoo is embedded in the fabric of Memphis. Vodun and Ifa are African religions that originated in Africa and the Caribbean and have survived to modern times in America.
Baba Ra and Mama Queen will be in the shoppe on Sunday, September 8 to teach an introduction to conjure, Vodun and Ifa. We invite everyone to come learn about these practices and traditions from two life-long practioners.

This event is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about these practices. Attendees are asked to NOT wear black, brown or red. Feel free to bring a notebook or folder to take notes in, although Baba Ra will provide handouts.

The cost of this event is $16. Seating is limited so we encourage everyone to reserve their tickets ahead of time. This event takes place in the downstairs event space of The Broom Closet.

El RA’el (L-Rah-eel) commonly known as Rah, is a Chicago native, now Memphian, spiritualist, and is the Founder of The El Ra Collective, an enterprise that focuses solely on serving the holistic needs of ALL people. Baba Rah is currently studying to obtain his license as a Life coach and Nutritionist. Baba Rah is an active Awo in the IFA spiritual System and training in Haitian Vodou. With help from the spirit, study, and experience Rah has been taught to apply and teach Universal Law and a combination of spiritual and holistic practices such as African Spirituality, Metaphysical Science, and physiological research.
