This book is a historical study of Obi divination and its Lukumi variant, and it is also a practical guide for the young olorisha. Willie Ramos is a longstanding priest of the tradition, as well as a thoughtful and assiduous researcher. Deeply passionate about the old ways of Lukumi, his books carry great weight. He writes clearly, effectively and eloquently as he guides the practitioner on a whole range of elements: what is do be done, how to conduct oneself, how do do the divinations, what words to say, and how to process the emotions of the client and oneself. As well, he gives a guide to vocabulary and terminology and an extensive bibliography.
