Your thoughts on this? Ose Tura Institute
Her message is a good one, and typical of those who practice the Yoruba tradition. The only thing that differs is that she is offering her services via the net, which isn't uncommen anyomre. She pretty much sounds like my Babalawo and the other Priests and Priestesses in the Ile/Egbe(House/Family), but I can't say much on the courses without actually taking one.
I must say critically, that I've never heard of someone charging for a libation before... outside of the spontaneous 'dashing' that may or may not occur. That could very well be just be my local experience. The other prices for spiritual services are somewhat standard... Although some of the services aren't normally given to people who have not become part of an Ile/Egbe from my experience, and a 'set price' is a little odd considering one person might get a reading to sacrifice a chicken, while someone else might get a reading for a goat(big price difference there)... Then again, maybe her services don't include Ebo(sacrifices) at all, which would put them on the pricy end, but that may be the price for 'outsider' services, which usually differ from thoughs who are devotees. In that case, standardizing the price means she isn't trying to con the unsuspecting newbies, which is a good sign.
May I ask your thoughts?... And what attracted you to this particualar site over the myriad of others offering similar services via the net?
