Orisa Lifestyle is a movement that celebrates the collective identity and articulates the shared beliefs of socially responsible orisa priests, devotees and practitioners. Our success depends on voluntary, motivated, and committed participation. The role of leadership within the movement transcends the stereotypical image of a charismatic public persona. Consequently, leadership is not at all defined by initiations. Instead, Orisa Lifestyle Catalysts organize by identifying, recruiting and developing leadership at ALL levels of the organization. Our objective is to train and develop volunteer leaders, rooted in communities where they are committed to serving.
Orisa Lifestyle Agreements (OLA16)
Agreements transform a crowd into a community. Agreements organize habits and shape them into a culture. Orisa Lifestyle Agreements are designed to cultivate 16 generations of sustainable culture. Orisa Lifestyle Agreements are personal rituals that energize your highest aspirations and inspire others to do the same. The OLA16 tribe is calling out to all highly motivated, innovative people around the world. We're especially interested in those of you who are ready to create real solutions to real problems... And have a good time doing it!
Imagine a collective of people from different disciplines - priests, counselors, teachers, parents and other human services professionals, all drawn together by a shared vision; to transform everything that's broken - from hearts to ecosystems to bank accounts to windows - into vibrant works of art and expressions of Beauty. The nature of the universe, after all, is balance and harmony.
The OLA16 tribe is organized around the knowledge and understanding that WE are the ones we have been waiting for. Let's live the medicine that will heal our lives and heal the lives of those we were born to serve. Finally, we affirm the critical importance of original thought in the creation of enduring change. Albert Einstein once said, 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.' Join the OLA16 tribe, where we practice personal greatness and inspire others to do the same."
Òrìsà Lifestyle Agreements (OLA16) is a movement designed to align our spiritual, economic and environmental activities. Whereas the orisa religion represents the Yoruba spiritual vision, OLA16 represents the activation of spiritual culture. Learn more in the OLA16 Catalysts' Handbook.
