Welcome to our Centro, a center for mediums to develop their gifts. If you are interested in mediumship skills or attending a Misa, please contact us.
What a Misa is
A Misa is a collaboration of Spiritual Guides, mediums and participants. Within the Sanse tradition one of our central public ceremonies is a Misa, or Mesa Blanca. A Misa is a spiritual mass designed to allow the spirits to give messages and guidance to the public for progression and healing. They are usually held within someone’s home or in a small temple. they are non-denominational as the focus is to assist and support the community.
For us, as Sansistas, it is important to give to the communities we are connected with. Offering a Misa is one of the many ways we serve our community.
What you will see in a Misa
You will see a table set up with white cloth. On the table are ceremonial items we use to clear and elevate the space. We do this to offer a strong sacred space for messages to come through the mediums. Three or more mediums are always present. Most Misas are free because they are a public service. You will see a donation basket and it is common for people to donate money for the cause.
Sacred items that are used frequently like waters, candles and incense are donated by the participants, or paid for by the donations. Although most people who attend a Misa are people familiar with Caribbean mysticism, we invite ALL people to join in the fun. For us, Sanse is a diverse tradition comprised of many cultures, therefore Misa gatherings tend to be refreshing and supportive for everyone who attends.
There is no agenda in a Misa except for the mediums to share messages.
You also will see tables and offerings set up for various holidays, the changing of seasons, or particular spirits we may be honoring that day. Often you will also see spiritual cleansing and washes given out. Beautiful prayers will be read. I like the prayers we use because they are from all over the world and, yet, unusual and difficult to find outside of the tradition.
At the table the mediums will sit and they will call up people to give the messages quietly for privacy. Often, messages from ancestors or loved ones will come through. The participants may receive messages from a guide or Mystery / Lwa, and on rare occasions, a possession may take place by one of the mediums if there is a serious need for the visitation.
Sanse has been a private tradition
Sanse has held many secret teachings safe. Much like the Tarot, designed to hold important mysteries safe within an image, the Sanse tradition has protected spiritual laws from disappearing. Even today most Sansistas do not know the roots of some of the work they provide. In our temple, we strive to embody the tradition, the history and the meaning behind the work.
Sansistas have many different types of ceremonies that we conduct for both the public and in private.
1. What should I wear when attending?
Dress in light colors and a white top. In our tradition, faith, hope, and charity are important, we gather together to encourage hope, to give through charity, and to call forward people’s faith. We are a non-denominational temple. When we say faith we do not intend any church, religion or spirituality to be praised. In our culture faith resides within us and develops a person’s sense of safety and power. Faith in god for us, means a belief and trust in the great spirit and the universe. For some this may mean a god, to others a pervasive force. Ether way we are gathering for this reason, to bring forward people’s faith. The colors need to be light to represent the purity of this purpose.
2. I think I am an Espiritista, how do I know?
If you are an Espiritista you will have had a history with hearing, seeing and sensing what most other’s cannot. If you are gifted, you will remain in training until you are ready to join in on the Mesa Blanca. In some houses, mediums are allowed to join the table with no teachings. I believe this is wrong. We, at our temple provide the best teachings, the safest environment, and good mediumship. This requires you to go beyond your current level of mediumship with classes. We do not allow people to give messages unless we know they are clean – spirituality clear. This is our way. If you have the gift and want to develop your gift, we will see you for classes and teach you how to be on the Misa table. We recognize that anyone can be an Espiritista. Some have a natural knack for it. If you can already see, hear or feel the Spirits, you may find that you do well.
3. I am a Medium, can I be on the Misa table?
Yes, if you are an advanced medium or developing medium we welcome you to our ceremonies. As we stated above, we do want people to train up to be on our tables, however, we encourage people from all traditions and backgrounds to join us. This is one of our traditions, to have people from various spiritual paths gather together at the table. This makes the Misa more powerful. If you want to join our group all you need to do is contact us.
4. What are typical donations? What should I bring?
Flowers, Florida Water, Money, Incense, Anil balls (blue ball), Sabbath candles, Seven Day candles. Anything from your heart.
5. What do I need to know?
Belief in God, the Great Spirit, or Universal power is important. You should also know how to pray. This is a sacred space for people to come and receive sometimes difficult news, guidance or healing. So, we ask everyone to respect the Misa the same way they would respect a temple. In our tradition, we do not have fancy temples. This is how Sanse developed, in a hut, at a table, by the beach, in the woods, hidden and far away from people who would otherwise have destroyed the gathering. This is our time for connecting with spiritual guides. We ask everyone to be respectful to the mediums and the other participants at the gathering. Be on time, bring a donation. Come ready to have fun – this is important to us because a Misa is also a celebration.
6. When do you perform services open to the public?
We have a monthly gathering. Sign up for our email list and you will be invited.
