What does MYAL mean?
- Myal is an Afro-Jamaican spirituality developed via the creolization of African religions during the slave era in Jamaica. It incorporates ritualistic magic, spiritual possession, and dancing. The practice evolved over time to meld with Christian practices and created the religious tradition known as Revivalism. As the term exists today, "myal" is a common term used for the state of being possessed by a spirit. Unlike Obeah, it's practices focus more on the connection of the spirits with humans.
