Listeners will meet Elegba the Trickster, Oshun, the Goddess of Love, Art, and Sensuality and a host of Illustrious Ancestors who've left a legacy of magic and power for us to inherit.

Teish will share the personal stories of growing up down South among the whisperings of Voudou in New Orleans and explain how spirit saved her from mean streets, slippery slopes, and rabbit holes.

And most importantly participants are invited to remember the proverbs and stories that colored and flavored their own lives, and to share them with the group.
