QUIMBANDA WORKSHOP 2021



We are happy to announce our next Quimbanda workshop, which will be held in May 2021 in Extrema, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The exact dates are 5th of May to 9th of May.

This time we will make the event one day longer due to the added focus on Umbanda and its relation to Quimbanda, hence we will have a gira of Umbanda as well as one of Quimbanda.

The workshop is initiatic in nature. It means that parts of the initiatic process used in our house of Quimbanda will be used for the purpose of connecting you with your personal Exu and Pomba Gira, but also with Exu Omolu who is the Exu presiding over this step pf the process. 

The aim is to forge a true connection with your personal Exu/Pomba Gira through Omolu in such way that you will during these days enable yourself to forge a genuine connection with spirit.

This means that this first step is about you and your personal relationship with your Exu and Pomba Gira, hence at this point you will not make a commitment to the cabula/temple like the lifelong pact of loyalty a Tata or Yaya pledges. This first step is something you do for yourself, to become an autonomous practitioner capable of taking care of your Exu and Pomba Gira.

We will take care of all things necessary both practical and spiritual, and whatever present itself naturally and dynamically during the workshop we will strive towards addressing. The idea is to generate this event together and allow it all to unfold naturally under the watchful eyes of Exu and Pomba Gira. This means that the content/outline of the workshop will be subject to change depending on what surfaces as important. This because each group is unique and the needs tend to change a bit from group to group, hence the chronogram is more suggestive than fixed.

For more information, please write to: sacred.alchemy.store@gmail.com

Please note, that interest and opportunity is not enough, every person is presented to the Maioral and will go through a spiritual screening process.

The ‘firmeza’ of Quimbanda

Quimbanda is a cult centred on the direct and head on interaction with spirit, hence developing mediumistic skills and capability in spirit trafficking is integral and vital to working Quimbanda. Possession is a phenomenon that intrigues and also scares. After all we have all seen movies like The Exorcist and other horror thrillers giving visual spectacles to how hostile spirits can take over the human body, mind and soul in intrusive and fatal ways. But possessions do find a counterpart in the shamanic rapture as much as in the prophet whose soul is filled with angelic light that makes him or her prophetic. Possession is not only about the full given over of your material vessel to a spirit that in turn uses the faculties of the medium to engage various forms of work. Inspiration, dream and to be ‘under the influence’ are potentially valid and worthy avenues for connecting with spirit. Yet another avenue for good spirit trafficking is the communion, or what Jake Stratton-Kent ca

A Quimbanda FAQ

In this article I will try to answer some questions concerning Quimbanda that surfaces with frequency. Questions concerning how to work this cult solitary and somehow dislocated from the cultural climate of understanding here in Brazil are frequently asked as are questions concerning the magical tools, such as guias, patuás and statues, available to the general public. I want to be initiated in Quimbanda, how do I proceed with that? When we speak of initiation in the perspective of Quimbanda we are speaking of a true and intense merging with spirit that involves a pact/agreement, a spirit vessel (assentamento), ordeal and oath. There are elements used in this process that are common to every house/terreiro/cabula/lineage of Quimbanda that reveals a common origin. There are different varieties of Quimbanda in Brazil, and the expression of the common root, will always depend of the constellation of spirits we find in the tronco. In other words, a ‘Casa de Exu’ that is dominated

Macumba Workshop (Umbanda & Quimbanda) 2022

The Cabula/Temple Meia-Noite da Encruzilhada will arrange for its yearly workshop of Quimbanda from 7 th of September to the 11 th of September 2022 . The workshop will this year also cover Umbanda , hence we will make a workshop under the greater umbrella of ‘ macumba ’. The workshop will be held in Brazil, in the state of Minas Gerais on a Farm located in the midst of the forest, 100 km from the airport Guarulhos in São Paulo. In this workshop we will offer traditional Umbanda baptism and we will offer the first initiatic step in the ladder of Quimbanda , what is often called vinculação , a ceremony working on the same level as a baptism that aims towards establishing a true and strong bond with your Exu and Pomba Gira. These initiatic steps will be followed by a full Gira (drumming) where also the spirits of Umbanda will be celebrated as we move from these spirits of forest and wisdom towards Exu and Pomba Gira during the celebration. These important parts are mediated by se
