Voodoo Dolls, Potions, Magic Spells...what are they really? And what actually happens during a Voodoo Ritual?
Portrayed as evil or harm-inducing, Voodoo may be the most misunderstood religion in the world. Discover the truth behind this religion as this book takes you through the very beginnings of Voodoo in New Orleans with the enslaved Africans and how, over time, their practice combined with that of the Free People of Color who moved to New Orleans from Haiti in the late 1700s. Learn about the famous Voodoo Priestess, Marie Laveau, and how her legacy continues in New Orleans today. You’ll even uncover a direct link from the most devout Voodooists to Catholicism!
To make this a truly personalized Voodoo experience, you will also learn about the importance of the Gris Gris bag and receive your own, which will be specifically created and blessed to bring you health and serenity in these unpredictable times. Each Gris Gris bag is handmade and blessed by Voodoo priests and priestesses using the finest roots, herbs, oils, and other powerful ingredients to create these traditional New Orleans prayer charms. At approximately 1” x 2.5”, it is perfectly sized to be with you in all times of need.
Also in this gift set is an original work of art by local artist Reverend Varg Vargas of the Deurty Boys Gallery that celebrates the colorful culture of New Orleans Voodoo. His “canvas” is a recycled record album cover!
