The Annual Osun River Ritual organisers and Thames21 have teamed up again to invite you to this special tribute to the river goddess Mama Osun. We enjoyed it so much, even in the biting cold of October last year, that we had to do it again this year.
Osun is the river deity (Orisa) of sweet waters. She is the symbol of abundance, beauty, creativity, fertility, joy, love, sensuality and so much more. The Ifa tradition of the Yoruba, from which she stems, acknowledges her importance to the environment and human life. Without her, nothing can be produced, nothing grows or is reproduced, since she represents the force of nature that expresses creativity, nurture and divine love.
You are invited to celebrate Mama Osun as a symbol of our life and love for our environment. We will gather at Battersea Bridge Southside, do a brief clean up, followed by a communal and collective offering of the dainties she adores. This is a wonderful therapeutic and feel good experience – bring the family, children (big and small) would love it!
Time: 1.00pm (clean up from 1.30-2.30; offering 2.30pm – 3.45pm)
Location: Battersea Bridge Southside, Battersea Bridge Road, SW11 3BZ
What to wear: We all wear white or yellow or both in her honour (yes even to do a clean up!) She is always stunning looking, which is why we keep her sacred waters pristine too.
