Shrouded in mystery, Caribbean magic has long been misunderstood—but this book helps solve that mystery. Diamantino Fernandez Trindade, one of the most renowned spiritualist authors in Brazil, and Sébastien de la Croix, an initiated Houngan (Vodou priest), reveal the truth of Haitian Vodou and North American Voodoo. Learn about these two spiritualities and how they are connected to Hoodoo, an African American tradition that incorporates Voodoo, Indigenous traditions, spiritism, and European folklore.
Vodou, Voodoo, and Hoodoo provides a variety of simple spells that require no initiation and support many aspects of contemporary life. You'll also learn about the life of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, a famous practitioner who was ahead of her time. Featuring deities, recipes, prayers, and more, this book gives you an authentic look at Caribbean magic.
