Review

"Chief FAMA unites arcane with mundane in yet another classic of Ifá literature. This book is a must for...library...." -- Dr. Medicine Hawk Wilburn, author of Urban Santeria: New World Magic For Urban and Suburban Populations

Practitioners' Handbook for the Ifá Professional was written with the initiated, practicing Babaláwo and Ìyánífá in mind. It is awesome! -- Oloye Chief Ifabowale Sohma Somadhi, MA

Format: Paperback
Adupe Chief FAMA (Aina Adewale-Somadhi) She has been a becon of light for both Babalawo's and Iyanifa's with her many works. This one being just as it says: "FOR THE PROFFESSIONAL".

It's purpose is to offer enough information to those Awo's who may not have access to a local teacher of Ifa. At least you can work with confidence until you can hook up with the correct Oluwo-Ifa. Please be respectful of the Warnings! when it says it requires a person with the proper Ase. It MEANS an initiatated Priest who has gone through Itefa not an orisa priest or non initiate. Lots and lots of excellent material. May Iya continue her great contributions. Ogbo ato. Ifa agbe e.

Alafia;

Baba Onifade Sangodare

This book becomes a very useful additional tool in my practice. The book addressed specific areas in working with Ifa. It is written and explained in one only way an expert could. Very helpful for students and followers of Ifa especially those of us outside and away from our Oluwos. Great job by chief Fama not to keep these teachings to herself alone. Aboru Aboye O.

Format: Paperback
Chief Fama has a hit for any serious follower of IFA. She is one of the top luminaries within Orisha worship or as she would say Orisa worship. One of the great things about our religion is that there is room for discussion and even sometimes controversy or contridictions; these makes us reflective and we grow stronger. Her fine offering has the nuts and bolts many search for.
