Voodoo: The Secrets of Voodoo from Beginner to Expert ~ Everything You Need to Know about Voodoo Religion, Rituals, and Casting Spells (2016)
NEW Second Edition, Published September 14, 2016 Most people have heard of Voodoo before, but if you think it only has to do with sticking pins into cursed dolls for the purpose of inflicting pain onto your enemies, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Voodoo, or ‘Vodou’ as it is traditionally referred to, is a modern-day take on an ancient Haitian religion developed by African-Caribbean slave workers on island plantations during the period of French Slavery.
The first tarot to celebrate an African-American culture, this book and 79-card deck capture both the spirit and the imagery of Voodoo`s African, West Indian, and Catholic influences. Ancient and earth-honoring, Voodoo`s practices take on different forms specific to time and place, but its essence remains focused on the loa–the potent spiritual forces of Voodoo that are manifested directly through human beings and their actions.
Haitian Vodou is a fascinating spiritual tradition rich with ceremonies and magic, songs and prayers, dances and fellowship. Yet outside of Haiti, next to no one understands this joyous and profound way of life.

Called by the spirits and taught conjuration by family members, she was working the goofer from five years old. That’s some serious heat. Denise is no pretender. She’s for real.
