"Vodou is more than a religion, it's a philosophy of life.
Portsha’s deep, true connection with Lwa and her willingness to share her wisdom nurtures our deeper understanding and opens the road to a greater one-ness with community. Love is at the center of this work; it transforms the work from teaching to ritual to healing root magic. Listening to the rise and fall of Portsha’s beautiful voice, I knew the protection of Ezili Danto’s exquisite embrace. Salye, Manman!”
I facilitated the second session of Dancing Spirits: Female Lwa in Haitian Vodou, Saturday evening, in honor of Metres Ezili Freda Dahomey. You know when a workshop is scheduled 7-9pm and participants are so engrossed in sharing, affirming, honoring the love within and simply BEING until 11pm, it's something special!
"Giving thanks to the Creator for sending divine beings in my life who exude so much love, light, strength and courage. It felt so good being in a safe sacred space to just BE and Feel. This spiritual workshop was so necessary on so many levels!! I love what you’re doing. Your authenticity, love and creativity really shows!! I had a blissful experience learning new moves, song, altar etiquette and cleansing!! Ayibobo!"
"Thank you Portsha for being committed to the work and your path and for sharing your journey; holding space for us as women to tap in, to reflect, to explore, to heal, to manifest, to transform, to empower, to honor our ancestors and SPIRIT. To uplift Haiti through song and dance. There are many things I could say but my heart and spirit is still full."
