Description

      Vodou is an initiatic religious/magical spiritual system of Haiti.  Haitian Vodou represents the maintenance of ancient spiritual venerations throughout a people’s journey through slavery, revolution and self emancipation. Vodou empowered the Haitian revolution.  Vodou and Haitian culture have been tangentially a part of the fabric of New Orleans’ culture, and New Orleans Voodoo. Today the subjects of Haitian Vodou, New Orleans Voodoo, and African Vodun are often lumped together and confused in comparative study.  This class will disambiguate the practice, and introduce you to the Lwa, divinities of nature, and the key spiritual practices of Vodou.

  • Learn about the Lwa
  • Learn practices common to initiates and non-initiates.
  • Take your first step toward working with the spirits of Vodou
