This spiritual retreat and personal empowerment event offers a first time opportunity to walk through the Sacred Gardens of Esu (Ellegua), Osun, Ogun, Sango, Yemonja, Oya, Aje, Ori, Ela, Ibeji, Orunmila (Arula), Phoenix, Ancestors, Aje and more.
The Scared Sculpture Gardens showcase over 20 unique spiritual sculptures and Orisa Gardens thriving in the African soil of Florida. The grounds represent a special piece of Earth where thousands of ceremonies, ebbos and offerings have been performed, creating a unique and intense energy vortex.
Oluwo Philip Neimark, Founder of The Ifa Foundation, stated:
“The Sacred African Orisa Gardens at Ola Olu in central Florida represent the living embodiment of the individual African Spirits that inhabit natural objects or Orisa, and pre-date the birth of Christ by several thousand years.”
The Gardens are the only complete example of the ancient Spirits of West Africa in the Western Hemisphere. In African philosophy, genuine Spiritual Gardens represent the intermediate point of connection between human and Orisa (Eternal energies created by God).
About The Sacred Spiritual Sculpture Gardens
In African philosophy, genuine Spiritual Gardens represent the intermediate point of connection between human and Orisa (Eternal energies created by God). This intermediate point, or physical Orisa, reflects its own accumulated ase’ (eternal energy), as well as the energy of every prayer and offering that has ever been made to it.
The Sacred Orisa Gardens at Ola Olu represent the only complete Sacred Orisa Gardens in the Western Hemisphere. In this location literally thousands of ceremonies, ebbos and offerings have taken place creating an accumulation of the most intense energy vortex within the physical Orisa, allowing your own potent connection and empowerment to take place.
The Orisa Spiritual Gardens represent both the visions of Susanne Wenger’s dedication to reviving the traditions of the pre-Christian Yoruba gods and her ongoing working relationship with Iya Vassa.
The sculpture work of Iya Vassa is an integral part of the Sacred Gardens. A leader in the Ifa Foundation of North America, Iya Vassa has developed the garden’s living art as a celebration to the Orisa that guide us. The Sacred Orisa Gardens at Olu Olu in Central Florida represent a sacred space for those of any spiritual path to connect with the vibrational reality of the Yoruba Archetypal eternal energies they embody.

The Foundation offers personal and family protection spiritual gifts of ancient African Protective tools that combine the wisdom of the past with the reality of the present. Ancient cultures used Earth based wisdom to identify, and work with, the essential vibrational reality that expresses them. They gave these energies names such as Elegua, Oshun, Ogun, Chango, Egun, Oya, Yemoja and combined them into a family of energies they referred to as Orisha. These Orisa formed the practical natural science that guided and protected their lives and community.
