Category:Hoodoo Heritage Festival Workshop Presenters in AIRR

From Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers

Jump to: navigation, search


The 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, due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic, the AISC Festival went virtual under the direction of Dr. Jeremy Weiss, and was held online via Zoom. The 2021 Virtual Hoodoo Heritage Festival continues this new format, with 10 virtual workshops over a two-day period.

Lady Muse: Respecting The Deities: A Call for Unity

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM Sunday, September 12, 2021

The path of Spiritual Believers may vary; however, it can be understood that there is a common denominator we all share: The belief in a higher power, the belief in a Creator Force, the belief in the Super Natural. Regardless of doctrine, we believe in the Spirit realm. Unfortunately, belief in the Super Natural is often given a bad rap. Most stereotypical assumptions are often fueled by fear. People fear what they don't understand and cannot control. There are many questions that have gone unanswered for years simply because in some religious doctrines, it is taught that to even speak of the supernatural outside of the pulpit is taboo. It's important to understand that it is okay to have different protocols of spiritual practices and yet show respect to the traditions that we do not practice. At the end of the day we are ALL still Spiritual Beings who are connected in more ways then one might think. Let's take a journey to explore a call for Unity and invoke Positive Change together.
