Reading about Roots

This is my reading at the moment:

Does anyone else have a fascination or practice that encorporates Hoodoo/Rootwork?

I have Jambalya on the TBR list and sticks ans stones is on the ereader just waiting for me to come back. I love rootwork as it's so much more involved, than your garden variety 'craft work' but it's not my main focus of work.
i can't wait for you to share with us stuff you have learned.

Yes, I have used rootwork in my practice for years. I took Catherine Yronwode's correspondence course when she first started offering it- it was great. I'm not sure where my fascination with this stems, but this continues to be a part of my magical practice.

I haven't used Rootwork, but truly am fascinated by it, and have added these books to my reading list.

Thanks so much for sharing them with us. I'm interested to know what you think of them, and their content when you are through.

I don't use rootwork in my practice but have always wanted to learn. I have always had a curiosity for hoodoo but never pursued it. (yet)

Thanks for posting this. I have always been interested in many aspects of hoodoo and also santeria.Thanks for giving me a headstart on my reading since I havent started reading up on it at all as of yet.

I've always loved my bones. There is something special about using what was to glimpse into what might be. I'm adding STICKS, STONES, ROOTS AND BONES to my "Need to get List".

Gracias!

I have had a fascination with rootwork but have never had a chance to delve too deeply into it. Would love to know what you think of the books....

I have all three of these books among others about Hoodoo and Voudon... I find the subject very interesting.

I've read Jambalaya and Sticks and Stones. Both books were fascinating, the latter more so, for all the recipes and information.

Both books are gone into the black abyss of my moves or I loaned them.

Voodoo, I leave alone. Hoodoo, maybe so.

Blessings.

I just purchased Sticks, Stones, Roots, and Bones on my Kindle. Haven't had a chance to get to it yet.

I loved the book Jambalaya -- I first learned about Yemaya through the book. The other books I'll have to check out. Thanks for the info.
