The Point of Return…Yorubaland, Nigeria April 2024

$5,500.00

Why Nigeria? Why You?

Our vision is to inspire, educate, and encourage people of our time to know our truth. Knowing our history. Knowing our value. Speaking our Truth. Nigeria (Yorubaland) is one of the most highly influential African countries, recognized globally.

Yorubaland’s rich and vast culture ranging from the food to the music to the fashion and even the spiritual traditions has been embraced by the entire world. The truth is, why aren’t we going there? What is holding us back?

Our Ancestors have called and continue to do so which means only now, each of you has the purposeful time to figuratively reach back and literally return to the sacred lands that our Ancestors were told They would never return to.

We are THEY in Spirit! And THEY SHALL RETURN in the Spirit of Their descendants!

Join Us On This Once in a Lifetime Trip to Yorubaland, Nigeria!

Saturday Day 3 — Osun Osogbo + Ile Ife
April 20, 2024
Osogbo Osun Grove + Tour of Ile Ife

According to the Yoruba worldview, Ile-Ife is the place of origin of all humankind and is therefore of particular religious and political importance. Here the deities Odudua and Obatala, under instruction from the creator Olodumare, began the creation of the world. Ile Ife, or Ife, is an ancient Yoruba city in southwestern Nigeria famous for its art.

Ife was founded around 500 B.C. and is the oldest Yoruba city. Between 700 and 900 A.D., the Ile-Ife began to develop as an important artistic center. It is presently part of Osun State and has an estimated population of 501,000 people. Ile-Ife is a prominent regional agricultural center for a surrounding area that produces vegetables, grain, cacao, tobacco, and cotton.

Rich in history and culture, Ile-Ife is home to the Natural History Museum of Nigeria that we will visit, and Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), one of the leading academic institutions in West Africa. Our tour of Ile-Ife will include a journey through its profound ancient historical sites and experiencing the cultural essence of Ile-Ife today.

As we journey to Osogbo, prepare to be mesmerized by its vibrant art and spirituality. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Osun-Osogbo Sacred Grove awaits, a sanctuary where nature flourishes alongside breathtaking sculptures and shrines. Let the rhythmic beats of the Osun Festival captivate your soul, as you witness the devotion of the Yoruba people to their ancestral traditions.

Sunday Day 4 — Abeokuta- Olumo Rock + Dinner @ King’s Palace
April 21, 2024

Olumo Rock is a massive outcrop of granite rock that towers above the city of Abeokuta. From a historical perspective, the rock served as a natural fortress for the Egba people during the 19th century. It offered a great vantage point during the tribal wars giving the Egba people a defensive advantage leading to their being victorious in war.
