Ile Yemoja Achaba 6-6:

Ile Yemoja Achaba 6-6 is an African diasporic Yoruba community committed to educating and addressing the multi-faceted spiritual needs of our greater community. 

We guide people on an introspective journey to cultivate spiritual power by connecting them with the diverse spiritual resources and historical healing practices of their diverse ancestral lineages.

Our distinct method of integrating traditional spiritual work with introspective practices is very effective in transforming the challenges of modern-day life into opportunities for awakening their higher consciousness.
