Èbìbí/May: Recreation, entertainment, risk taking Plato said you can learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. In this season, all the world is alive with playful energy. Parks, beaches and outdoor concerts provide the perfect scenarios for every sort of dramatic display of wit and creativity. Beneath it all, you feel the compulsion to to bring happiness into your life and the lives of others by concentrating on activities like decorating the temple of your body or home, hosting parties or participating in festivals. The danger is to lose sight of the transformative spirit of play. If you're like most people, you probably find it hard to concentrate on "work" but you haven't figured out how to focus on "play" and still remain spiritually grounded.
The Èbìbí/May full moon ritual accentuates the crossroads of play and spirituality. Within Orisa Lifestyle, crossroads symbolize liminal space, governed by Esu-Elegba, the trickster deity. It suggests ambivalence, the need to make ritual adjustment. Now is the time for you to be formally activated as a liminal agent who consciously sits at the threshold of play and spirituality. In this way, you will make a deep connection between playfulness and spirituality. During this phase of the journey, you optimize the liminal space of the time by putting away your daily activities and daily roles for a while. The Èbìbí/May full moon ritual focuses on helping you resonate with the vitality of the season and nurture a sense of improvisation.
In this ritual you will receive - purification rites that will help you to bridge play and spirituality - divination and spiritual discourse pertaining to improvisation and creativity - spiritual preparations (e.g., protective charms, herbal infusions, altar items)
