This intermediatepoint, or physical Orisa, reflects its own accumulated ase’ (eternal energy), as well as theenergy of every prayer and offering that has ever been made to it.The Sacred Orisa Gardens at Ola Olu represent the only complete Sacred Orisa Gardens inthe Western Hemisphere. In this location literally thousands of ceremonies, ebbos andofferings have taken place creating an accumulation of the most intense energy vortex withinthe physical Orisa, allowing your own potent connection and empowerment to take place.
The Orisa Spiritual Gardens represent both the visions of Susanne Wenger’s dedication toreviving the traditions of the pre-Christian Yoruba gods and her ongoing working relationshipwith Iya Vassa.The sculpture work of Iya Vassa is an integral part of the Sacred Gardens. A leader in theIfa Foundation of North America, Iya Vassa has developed the garden’s living art as acelebration to the Orisa that guide us. The Sacred Orisa Gardens at Olu Olu in Central Floridarepresent a sacred space for those of any spiritual path to connect with the vibrational realityof the Yoruba Archetypal eternal energies they embody.

There is evidence that Florida separated from Gondwanaland about300 million years ago. Florida eventually found itself wedged between Gondwanaland andNorth America when they combined to form the super continent Pangaea. When Pangaeabegan to break up, Florida remained behind with North America. Florida slipped slowlybeneath the waves to become part of North America’s continental shelf. Florida finallyemerged from the seas as part of the North American mainland.About The Ifa FoundationThe Ifa Foundation Is a federally approved 501 C-3 not-for profit Foundation, providinginformation, teaching and spiritual items related to the Ancient African philosophy of IFA.This information is distributed online in the following locations: www.IfaFoundation.org www.SpiritualTools.org www.OrisaGardens.org www.IfaBlog.com www.IfaCollege.comFor More Information Contact: Ifa Foundation of North & Latin America P.O.
