Book Review

“This is an excellent book for those wanting to learn about the Osha. It covers history, various Orishas (dieties in the Santeria religion) and some practices along with examples of cleansings and divinations. This book is extremely informative with regards to the workings of the religion and various steps on getting initiated into the religion. I was very much surprised at the amount of details regarding certain practices that for a long time were kept hidden and secretive out of necessity for survival.” –Phoenix Sol
