From Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers

Jump to: navigation, search

The 15th annual Hoodoo Heritage Festival, produced by the Association of Independent Spiritual Churches and staffed by members of the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers provides a high-energy space for folk-magic learners, experienced home practitioners, professional readers and conjure doctors, and interested members of the public to get together, socialize, and take hands-on workshops from experienced members of AIRR and other well-known rootworkers.

Inaugurated in 2008, the Hoodoo Heritage Festival was created by Ms. Robin to broaden the scope and outreach of the conjure community -- and the huge amount of interest in hoodoo since then is a testament to her efforts. From 2008 through 2019, the Association of Independent Spiritual Churches sponsored an annual Hoodoo Heritage Festival in Forestville, California. In 2020 and 2021, due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic, the AISC Festival went virtual and was held online via Zoom. The 2022 Virtual Hoodoo Heritage Festival continues this new format, with 10 virtual workshops over a two-day period.

THE VIRTUAL HOODOO HERITAGE FESTIVAL, 2022

August 13th and 14th, 2022

Great Teachers, True Fellowship, and ... the Goody Boxes!

Our zoom classes in African American folk magic, root work, and hoodoo proved so popular that we will be hosting a third Virtual Hoodoo Heritage Festival on August 13th and 14th, 2022, under the auspices of Ms. Robin, Papa Gee, Papa Newt, and Lady Muse. These Zoom workshops, accompanied by live chat and physical "goody-boxes" filled with spiritual supplies and printed books, teach you practical tricks and tips to take your conjure work to a new level of confidence and knowledge. In addition to spell casting and divination, we also showcase the mystery and magic of world-wide folk religions, and you can also book private readings with members of Hoodoo Psychics during the event.

We will look at various moments of time and learn how to strategically connect those moments to enhance the driving force of energy that is being evoked for your specific intent.

  • Lodestones on the Altar: Natural Magnetism
    • Clifford Low

Working with lodestones, also known as natural magnetite, is a fundamental Hoodoo practice. The ability of these mysterious stones to attract iron to itself via the power of magnetism has fascinated people around the world for millennia, and is broadly believed to help practitioners influence events at a distance. Lodestone altar settings can powerfully draw love, money, and nearly any other thing that can expressed symbolically through sympathetic magic. In this workshop you will learn how to set up and maintain both simple and complex lodestone altars for a range of objectives, and deepen your relationship with these most marvelous spirits of the earth.
