Yemaya, Goddess of the Living Ocean
Every culture has their own interpretation of the “Mother of Us All”.
Yemaya is the West African interpretation – her name meaning “mother whose children are the fish”. As all life is thought to have begun in the sea, all life is held to have begun with Yemaya. She is motherly and protective, and cares deeply for all of her children, comforting them and cleansing them of sorrow.
