INTRO TO ASETO SPIRITUAL PLANNING Orisa Lifestyle is not a one-size-fits-all spiritual practice. You might have the gift of dreams or you might be attuned to the phases of the moon or maybe you respond well to frequent divination. One thing I can tell you from personal experience is the fact that what gets measured gets done. The key is to figure out the BEST measurements of your spiritual resources in order to fulfil your DESTINY. ÀSÈTÒ
“You have a fullness you need to bring out. It's not an emptiness you need to cover up with things.” ― Ayi Kwei Armah, Fragments This may very well be the first time you ever think systematically about what outcomes you want to see in your SPIRITUAL life. How is the use of your DREAMS at the beginning of a project different from the end? What is the best ideal way to make use of DIVINATION when your relationship is harmonious, as oppossed to when it's breaking apart? How should you use MEDICINES and CHARMS verses PRAYER and MEDITATION when facing hostile enemies?
Even initation won’t insulate you from life’s many adversities and unexpected twists and turns. But the work we do together through ASETO will help you become an active participant in your DESTINY, intentionally shaping your own spiritual identity.
IWURE: Weekly Prayer Meeting
The ASETO experience of creating a spiritual plan, regularly reviewing it, and updating it as necessary, has been transformational for me, personally. As my family, friends, career, and other interests have shifted, ASETO has kept me on track, ensuring that I keep everything in balance (more or less) in the face of astonishing challenges. When things get chaotic beyond belief, my ASETO Spiritual Plan serves as a map. It tells me where I am, and how to use my spiritual resources to stay on the path of DESTINY.
In ASETO, my team and I will share with you how to create a similar plan for your own life. I am convinced it is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure that you are living the medicine, achieving what matters most—in every facet of your life.
Get completely focused and gain specific results from your spiritual development. ASETO will help you start out right by getting really clear about:
YOUR VISION: How you want to Live the Medicine ?
YOUR TIME: How long it will take to materialize your vision?
YOUR MONEY: How much money will you need to start?
YOUR RESOURCES: Which deities, natural elements and individuals need to be involved at various stages of the project?
Every week you will work closely with Obafemi and selected members of Team ASETO to craft new intensive lessons on three aspects of living the medicine; (1) How to remain loyal to your destiny, (2) How to increase spiritual empowerment and (3) How to focus exclusively on the people you serve.
Throughout, you’ll have access to additional exercises you’ll be expected to work through as homework. This way you can test and apply the strategies to everyday life and implement them as we go. This is the part most other counselors and ritual specialists leave out. Obafemi and Team ASETO are going to teach you how to validate your spiritual development and achieve personal mastery, too. This is what it means to live the medicine! ASETO begins with a two day retreat in Oakland and culminates in a spiritual journey to Nigeria. To discuss your personal situation and begin the interview process, please contact Obafemi at 510.485.2336.
