Yemaya, the Yoruban Mother Goddess of the Sea, is celebrated and known all over the world by many different names. Luisah Teish, in her book Jambalaya, describes her as “Yemaya-Olokun is the Mother of the Sea, the Great Water, the Womb of Creation. She is the Mother of Dreams, the Mother of Secrets. She is natural wealth, the Mother of Pearl and Veiled Isis. She is the mermaid, the full moon; and intelligence beyond human comprehension. . . . . Yemaya rules the house, nurtures the child in the waters of the womb; and has jurisdiction over the affairs of women.”
Yemaya’s colors are blue, silver, and white. She is seen as a large, beautiful, dark-skinned woman – powerful and radiating female power. Her number is seven and She wears a dress with 7 skirts which represents the Seven Seas. Sacred to Her are shorebirds, conch shells, gourds & rattles, watermelon. To Yemaya we bring our prayers, to hold and heal us. Teish says: “There is no mountain of trouble that Yemaya cannot wear own; no sickness of heart that She cannot wash clean; no desert of despair that She cannot flood with hope.” Come and pray with us.
Please wear something blue. For the altar, please bring any images of Her, sacred items above, or things representing the ocean. We will be meeting at the beach so please bring what you need to be comfortable, something to sit on like a blanket or a chair, sunscreen, hat, etc. The weather is very unpredictable so please bring layers. We also spend time at the Ocean so you might want to bring a change of clothes or a bathing suit and a towel or pareo.
If you are interested in participating in our ritual please see our participation page. Mahalo
