Hoodoo is African American and indigenous folk magick grown out of cultural oppression under colonialism and used towards practical problems and survival concerns. But it is so much more than that. It is also Ancestrally rooted, queer inclusive and about extreme reverence, respect and veneration for the culture and community. It’s built to take one from “survive to thrive”.

As well as show a few twists and respectful innovations of his own. Class is open to all levels.
