Clergy Profile: Lou Florez (Awo Ifadunsin Sangobiyi) is an internationally known Spirit worker, medicine maker, priest, activist, and artist who has studied with indigenous communities and elders throughout the globe. Lou grounds his teachings and practice in the idea that connectedness to ourselves and our physical, emotional, spiritual, and environmental landscapes is a fundamental necessity for any long lasting change to occur. He holds that through creating these living, dynamic relationships we become conscious of the inherent power available to us in every second of our lives.
Orisha & Bacongo
In 2015 Lou traveled to Ile Ife, Nigeria to undergo the Itefa initiation, which crowned him as an Awo, full initiate of IFA and High Priest in training. In 2008, Lou was confirmed as an Olorisha and Priest of Shango under Iyanifa Ifalade Ta’Shia Asanti of Ile Ori Ogbe Egun, and is a Tata Nkisi in the Bacongo Tradition. Following the mandates of his Italogun, Lou has also received tutelary initiations to various Orisha and is a senior priest in the Ile. He is currently helping to form an Oakland hub for the Ile.

Hoodoo, Southern Conjure, and Folk Magic
Conjure has been present in one form or another throughout my entire life and my formal training in these varied traditions lead me all over Texas and Louisiana. Lou is also a graduate of Catherine Yronwode’s Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course, and is a member of The Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers, a gathering of professional practitioners of African American folk magic, hoodoo, conjure, and rootwork, who provide psychic readings and spiritual root doctoring.
