Whenever I am studying a tradition, I tend to totally immerse myself in that tradition in order to understand it better. It's also a great learning experience. Since, I am attempting to complete the Hoodoo Course I mentioned in my previous blog, I set up a Hoodoo Altar for myself.
Much like in Wicca, altars are a very personal thing and no two altars will look exactly alike. Some hoodoo altars are permanent, while others last only as long as a working is being performed. In addition, a Hoodoo practitioner may have several altars dedicated to different forms of working.
