Eshu Offerings and Nkisi Assembly Consecrations for July 15-16, 2012

This is the food offering given in the park on the afternoon of July 15, 2012:

Eshu Food Offerings July 15 2012

It was given in the afternoon so that the dogs and jackals would have first run at them because canines are sacred to Eshu.

Now here are photos of the incense offerings and initial consecration and blessing of the nkisi assemblies:

Tomorrow or Wednesday, I will be going to the sea to bless the minkisi, and will post photos of this as soon as possible after.  Then on Friday I will be taking them to the Oshun blessed fountain in Tiberias, and will post photos of this as well.

Blessings and Ase!
