Iyaami: The Dawn of Lailai: The Divine Light of the Mothers
by Iyanifa Sarah Fajalabi Roche
This book was written with specific concepts in mind. The first is to give information to those interested in understanding the metaphysical principles and sacred technology of Iyaami Osoronga (African Women's Spiritual Mysteries). Second, to help facilitate the understanding in a way that can be processed easily. Third, to develop an understanding of what Iyaami is and fourth, to help people realize the Mother's are active in their lives at all times. It is an issue of perception which sometimes prevents us from being able to recognize this influence. The author’s intention is to open up a platform for starting the journey of understanding Iyaami Osoronga. The book discusses this tradition through the use of personal experiences, and the experiences of other women. These stories help explain the symbolic meaning of Ancient African Women's Mysteries.
