I was very blessed to be able to host the very first Aña to Obatala in honour of the International Peace and Healing initiative organised yearly by Oloshas United. It was held on the same day as many events all over the world, and our hope is that it will advance our quest for peace and healing, and that united we can have an impact in this world that is often so angry and damaged. I thank everyone who made an effort to come down, whether Olorishas or Aleyos, and I thank my Family and my Godchildren without whom I would not have been able to do anything. It was especially nice to have visitors from Spain, Finland and Outside of London.
