Our founder and leader is initiated and consecrated as a Temple’s Chief Commander by the Tenda Espírita Mirim (1924), and initiated into the cult of Orisha (Yoruba Traditional Religion).
Having received the permission of his astral entities Thales Fonseca started his spiritual work within the precepts of Umbanda in England in 2002 and founded The Umbanda Temple on December 2006.
All spirtual practices and spiritual consultations are free of charge. Although predominantly in Portuguese, there are volunteer translators available if necessary.
Our main goal is to provide charity based on the teachings of the “School of Life” of Caboclo Mirim as well as adding other principles to our work. Always respecting the instructions of Caboclo Guerreiro (chief spiritual entity of The Temple) as well as local legislation and the needs of our target audience.
Our main activities include free public sessions, lectures, individual / group counseling and spiritual and material assistance, aiming at the dissemination and advancement of the Umbanda Religion in the UK.
