Within the pages of this book, you will discover more than just a collection of myths; you will embark on a captivating journey filled with tales of wonder, enchantment, and timeless wisdom. These myths, presented in a fairy tale style, have been carefully selected to ensure an engaging and immersive reading experience.
Our approach to these myths is multifaceted, drawing from a variety of perspectives. We employ a structuralist lens, inspired by the likes of Levi-Strauss and Propp, to dissect the narrative frameworks and reveal underlying structures. A psychoanalytic perspective, influenced by the insights of Sigmund Freud and Alfred Adler, delves into the symbolic meanings hidden within these stories. Additionally, a spiritual analysis takes you deep into the mystical realm, exploring the intricate relationships and interactions between the Orish嫳.
All of these myths have been meticulously extracted from the vast corpus of the 256 Yoruba Odu Ifa books, encyclopedic collections that house the original myths, prayers, and sacrifices. In the future, the author will also publish or has already published the original books, preserving the authentic essence of this spiritual tradition.
