For the last ten years, around the first full moon of the year, I have lead a special beach side devotional rite in order to Yemaya (also spelt Yemoja and Iemoja), the Yorùbá Orisha or Goddess of the living ocean around. This year is no different.
On Thursday, 12th January I invite you to join me in this informal rite that will be held at Grange Beach where we will be asking Yemaya to bless the world's waterways, seas creations and all other beings that fall under Her protection.
Around 8.00pm we will be gathering on the grassed area along the forefront in front of the Grange Hotel (look for the purple banner) before heading down to the shore at 8.15pm. The rite will commence around 8:30pm.
