Voodoo And Hoodoo

  1. Great Video! Was that Sally Glassman in there? An old friend of mine owned a shop by hers. I don't agree with what the one lady said about Hoodoo loosing its spirituality. I think there is plenty of that to around. Maybe different from Vodou, but its still there.

      Yes, I believe that was Glassman. Yes, hoodoo is a mind-set, a view on the world and it is spirituality and not just magic. I think the people who want to claim that it's just magic do so because they don't want the spirituality of hoodoo.

    I agree completely and don't understand how anyone can't see the spirituality. What I have noticed that alot of people are using it just for the magic only.

      It's very common for people to view conjure as just magic. They know it's not a separate religion; however, they seem blind that it's also a spiritual tradition.
