Welcome to a new section of the Orisha Wisdom Podcast! It’s called *drum roll please* Ask A Priest – Have you ever had a burning question that you’d like to ask an Orisa Priest? This is the perfect way to get some answers to help you on your journey.

The question is “Are there any suggested books for newcomers in this journey?”
