Abiola Abrams is a powerful storyteller and historian. For anyone looking to explore Global African spiritual traditions laced with love, this is the text. Many of us have been forced to forget where we come from. African Goddess Initiation isn't just history; it contains rituals and ceremonies that tap into our collective DNA. Abiola's words are a soothing balm in turbulent times. This book is an offering, a gift from our ancestors, and they are felt on every page. A deep bow for Abrams as a channel, guide, and compassionate cheerleader. If African Goddess Initiation is in your hands, there is a reason. This book will permanently live on my nightstand when I need reminders, encouragement, or guidance. She's invited us all on this journey, solo or as a group. I'm eternally grateful for this wisdom and the invitation to reconnect with 'global sisterhood.'

Abiola invites us all to embrace the divine feminine energy within that is needed to nurture the planet at this time, and she takes us on a healing journey passed down from our ancestors to go within and activate our most authentic selves while removing limiting beliefs that hold us back from expressing who we truly are.

One of the most important contemporary books on the transformational power of ritual, and the journey to awakening the Divine Feminine in ourselves, Abiola Abrams has generously gifted us with a profound body of work inviting us into the sacred spaces and rituals of her spiritual ancestry-the extraordinary rich world of African goddess magic and mysticism. This book is pure alchemical magic. If you're called to open its pages, it offers nothing less than a fierce, loving, and timely initiation to awaken the Goddess within. More importantly it fills a great gap in our collective soul as the author reclaims the mystical power of her ancestors and firmly restores it to its rightful place. African Goddess Initiation is a living map to an inclusive unified world where we all are valued.
