Meia-Noite da Encruzilhada will arrange for its yearly workshop of Quimbanda
from 7th of September to the 11th 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 several hours of theory and practice necessary to maneuver the relationship that will be established with Exu and Pomba Gira on a personal level.
The goal for this event is to provide each and everyone with the knowledge and tools necessary to establish a healthy and rewarding relationship with your Exu and Pomba Gira as guides and confidantes in your life.
