About Candomblé

There are over 10 years worth of articles published on the blog, and if you’re a new follower it can take some time sifting through lots of what’s been posted. I have a series – Getting Involved in Candomblé – that I’ve added to over the years.

As more people learn about Candomblé there seems to be a tendency to draw conclusions based on information from other Orisa traditions. It’s completely natural to try to fit new information in with something you already know about a subject – it’s how we learn. Over the years I’ve noticed that some conclusions are inaccurate, however.

To simplify some things (and probably answer some questions you have), follow the links below about Candomblé.
