We are a learning center whose goal is to provide a forum where we can learn about the Yoruba based religious traditions which guide us. By choosing to lead our lives in this tradition, we must also accept the challenge to educate ourselves about our rich and complex culture. It is not our intention to formally ‘teach’ or ‘lecture, but to provide guided discussions. We wish to present the works and thoughts of the members of our community, hoping to use this information as a basis of discussion between ourselves and our elders.
Throughout history, we have relied upon our elders to pass down our beliefs and traditions. We believe that despite the nuances and advances of technology, this is still the best way to educate our community. Our mission at Our Learning Circle is to aid in this tradition.
Please extend this invitation to your elders, godchildren,family, friends and anyone you know who would like to learn more about our religious culture. We encourage you to contact us with your comments, questions and suggestions.
