About the Event

You're Invited!

Isis Moon and Ile Ase Gbogbo Ebora ("The House of the Power of All the Spirits") welcomes you to our festivities.  Ile Ase Gbogbo Ebora is a subdivision and one of the four main pillars of Isis Moon.  

Please join us as we celebrate the Yoruba culture by venerating several Orisa/Orisha (Yoruba deified spiritual energies) and provide awareness of significant cultural aspects.
