PermaJam welcomes back Grandmother Sangoma Oludoye, and it is such a blessing to have her with us for this Summer Solstice

Sangoma is a Spiritual Midwife, Empath, Custodian, Caretaker and Daughter of Many Cultures.

Together we will stoke the home fires of the PermaJam community in ceremonies with the Moon, Inipi (Sweatlodge).
