V O D U N

Vodun refers to "a whole assortment of cultural elements: personal creeds and practices, including an elaborate system of folk medical practices; a system of ethics transmitted across generations [including] proverbs, stories, songs, and folklore... vodun is more than belief; it is a way of life."

Vodun is sometimes called Voodoo, Vodoun, or Vodou. Religions related to Vodun are: Candomble, Lucumi, Macumba, and Yoruba). New Orleans Voodoo is a conglomeration of cultural and spiritual belief systems strongly influenced by the ancient Voodoo religion of Africa, the Vodou religion of Haiti, the healing arts of Native American people, the folk magic of Europe, and Catholicism. Voodoo is culture, heritage, philosophy, art, dance, language, medicine, music, justice, power, storytelling & ritual. Voodoo is a way of looking at and dealing with life. It heals and destroys, is both good and bad, and is simple in concept and complex in practice. Voodoo reflects the duality of the nature of the rattlesnake; its poison is toxic but its poison is needed to heal the same toxin. Voodoo is open to all yet holds many secrets & mysteries to those who are uninitiated.

Welcome to the group Geoffrey!

Both Voodoo and Hoodoo to me are fascinating.  Hoodoo appeals to me a bit more I think because of the items used in spells and rituals. Voodoo to me is more complex because there are different variations from different countries.  Both are extremely powerful and spiritual.

And to clarify, I do understand Hoodoo is not Voodoo, but I have found myself more interested in the religion of Voodoo since studying Hoodoo.

Comment by Patricia Fross on July 18, 2018 at 6:59am

I studied some hoodoo a while back through an online course, but I definitely do not consider myself well-versed in that or any kind of Voodoo. I always wanted to learn more and feel more competent to practice it, but an online course just doesn't do enough, I would need a personal teacher/mentor, I believe, especially since it's not something I grew up learning about. I do some spells from time to time using what I learned, would like to learn more.

God of the head comes up as a very broad term if Googled but does seem to be connected to possession.  Is there something specific about it your interested in?

What I have found thus far for you Theodore -

Zaria is indeed correct with the meaning of Gran Chemin - thank you!

Comment by Theodore K. Butler on July 16, 2018 at 2:36am

I think the term I am referring to is point chaud, or point chaudes. Veve's or Vev vevs, and atua. 

Comment by Theodore K. Butler on July 12, 2018 at 1:46pm

Thanks Zaria and I wish you LUCK. Check me out when you can Soon, Theodore.

Comment by SunKat on July 12, 2018 at 10:43am

Theodore I can look into that and see what I can find but personally I am not familiar with any of those terms.  Thanks Zaria for commenting after Theodore - I was meaning to answer!
