A  Journey Into The Ancestral Spiritual Practices of Benin (West Africa)

 

About Benin 

map-benin.png

Benin, formerly known as Dahomey,  is one of Africa's most stable democracies. It  is extremely rich in culture, history and touristic activity. The country of Benin was able to  preserve most of its historical monuments such as: the palaces of  the traditional Dahomey kings, the African slave trade road, the Amazonian caves and more, as well as artifacts and jewls dating from the time of slavery.
Moreover, Benin's shore includes what used to be known as the slave coast: the departure point for many African captives, who were later shipped across the atlantic ocean.

One fascinating aspect of Benin, is the fact that it's  people  preserved the spiritual practices of their ancestors. Whereas in most west African countries, colonization and slavery abolish these spiritual practices or caused the initiates to practice in secrecy, Benin is the proud mecca of Voodoo.
