About this Event
This annual beach side rite is held in honour of Yemaya around the first full moon of each new calendar year. For 2022, this full moon falls on Tuesday, 18 January at 10:18am so the 2021 YEMAYA BLESSING OF THE WATERS will be taking place the evening before, on Monday, 17 January 2022.
We meet at the northern end of the grassed area to the right of the jetty at Grange Beach just prior to 8pm (look for the purple banner of the Temple of the Dark Moon) and will head down to the foreshore in honour of Yemaya, the Queen of the Rivers, Seas and Oceans just after 8pm.
The rite will commence around 8:30pm.
In this informal rite, we ask for Yemaya’s blessings of all the world’s waterways, sea creatures, and all other beings that fall under Her protection.
Please bring an ecologically friendly offering to Yemaya (ie, flower, sea shell crystal, stone etc) that will be thrown into the ocean.
Participants will also be invited to share in a libation of watermelon (Yemaya’s favourite food).
Drums are welcome.
The wearing of white clothing or a head scarf is encouraged.
Children are welcome to attend but must be supervised by their parents/guardians.
A gold coin/loose change charitable donation will be collected.
