Yoruban Geomancy / The Fa (legends, songs, rhythms)

“The Fa”, a cultural archive of Indo-European, middle eastern, and African influences, is a compendium of fables, legends, metaphors and symbolic references, as well as a divination or scrying method.

A critical key to understanding the mores and world views of many modern African cultures, “The Fa” links story, song and sophisticated moral instruction to a mathematical structure that stimulates memory and provokes reflection and self discovery. With a life-long, passionate dedication to the study and practice of this system, Eric is a humorous, methodical, patient and competent master of “The Fa”.
