Professor Sangodare Fagbemi is simply the best meditation teacher I've ever had. My introduction into meditation came by way of Paramahansa Yogananda, after reading his acclaimed "Autobiography of Yogi".
I began studying the techniques prescribed by Yogananda and also began to incorporate more mindful meditation practices as taught by Zen Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh. I enjoyed these techniques, but I intuitively felt as though I was only scratching the surface of what was possible.
After meeting Professor Sangodare, I soon discovered that my suspicions were correct! During our very first mediation session, Professor Sangodare led me in a guided meditation in which I experienced a level of stillness and quiet that I had never experienced before. I found it all to be especially exciting because the techniques that he taught me were not at all dissimilar from the ones taught by Yogananda and other great Yogis in the East, and I found his explanations to be much more accessible and aligned for these modern times we find ourselves in.
Suddenly, techniques that I had been struggling with for years suddenly made more sense and an entire new world of possibility opened for me with my meditations. Professor Sangodare has given me a different meditation to do with each of the different chakras within the body, and I can't emphasize enough how transformative these meditation practices have been.
I would highly encourage anyone interested in learning about meditation to learn these techniques, and even if you already have a meditation practice, Professor Sangodare's knowledge and expertise about the energy centers within the body will undoubtedly take your practice to the next level.
Professor Sangodare Fagbemi's course in Obi Obata divination is simply next level. The method of study that Professor Sangodare possesses was taught to him by the late Oluwo Dr. Afolabi A Epega, whose lineage goes back many generations in the Ode Remo region of Nigeria.
'During the course, I learned how to read and interpret the 9 different Obi formations, and Professor Sangodare also taught me how to incorporate the 16-single leg Odus into the Obi Abata interpretations as well. I have been truly amazed at the level of precision and accuracy that comes through the Obi.
Professor Sangodare has given me the confidence to use my Obi as a way to commune with the energy within and around me, and every morning when I wake, I use exercises given to me by Professor Sangodare to help me become more aware of the consciousness of the given moment.
Studying Obi Abata with Professor Sangodare has not only deepened my understanding of divination, but also of the great complexities and mysteries within the spiritual practice of Ifa.
