Experience led by Jeanne Paule
Passionate about the arts and Beninese culture

Ifàdù: Coming from the Yoruba community of Ilé Ifè in Africa (ifà), the fâ is a divination practiced on the entire Beninese coast to the center by the Yoruba, Fon, Adja, Ewé communities...
It represents for these communities the means par excellence to learn about its destiny, its past, the supernatural realities linked to its present and to have a vision of its future. The consultation of the Fâ allows the patient to make a general prospection in his life and all his being. This art is based on different principles and calls upon expertise in deciphering and interpreting signs of which only initiates (Bokonon) hold the formula.

Hwendo : Traditional practice and religion taking its fundamentals from the cultures of the Fon, Ewe, Adja and Yoruba peoples; Voodoo is a key element in the life of the communities that make up Benin.
The Vodun designates all the invisible and spiritual forces; the supernatural world as well as procedures for creating contact between humans and the supernatural. Today there are various practices of Vodun, which sometimes lead to confusion on the understanding of this religion.
What is Vodun? What is the Fa? Let's discover them through this day of spiritual experience in immersion between Hwendo and Ifàdù!
