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.

Agreed they are both powerful I had someone do a ritual for me years ago. I felt it working immediately.. it was pretty amazing. As I did not expect it to take action so fast.

Comment by SunKat on Wednesday

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. 

Comment by Patricia Fross on Wednesday

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 Wednesday

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?

Comment by SunKat on Tuesday

What I have found thus far for you Theodore - 


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

Comment by Zaria Acacia on Monday

Ok I will look into it and get back to you as I am not much awake as of yet.

Comment by Theodore K. Butler on Monday

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

Grand Chemin, the Great Road that bridges our place of ceremony and the land where the spirits reside… a great and golden road the lwa proceed down to come to our temple (and, often, also the poto mitan, the central axis of the temple which our spirits can ride).
