Category:Hoodoo Heritage Festival Workshop Presenters in AIRR

From Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers

Jump to: navigation, search

Inaugurated in 2008, the Hoodoo Heritage Festival was created by Miss 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.

This year, due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic, the festival has GONE VIRTUAL, to be held ONLINE via Zoom on October 16th, 17th, and 18th, 2020! These classes in African American folk magic, root work, and hoodoo will 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.

A Visit with Black Herman

Black Herman, born Benjamin Rucker, was a famous African-American stage magician, herbalist, root doctor, and publisher from the 1910s until his death on stage in 1934. As a nationally renowned illusionist, the Great King of Mysteries, he regularly toured the segregated Black communities of the American South, bringing enjoyment to young and old alike. Meanwhile, back in New York City, he and his wife Eva Rucker operated Black Herman's Herb Garden from the top floor of their Moorish-themed home in Harlem. Both in his magazine, "The Spokesman," and in his classic book, "Secrets of Magic-Mystery & Legerdemain: The Missing Key to Success, Health and Happiness."Black Herman taught his clients and students practical conjure, herbal medicine, and herb magic -- and favoured the use of Chinese Wash to remove crossed conditions. In this special presentation, actor Stephen Dupree brings us "A Visit with Black Herman," which will reveal down-home techniques of hoodoo and at the same time allow Ben Rucker to tell his own story about what it was like to be a celebrity stage magician of wealth and high esteem during the heyday of the Harlem Renaissance.

Papa Gee: The Stranger in the Cup: How to Read Your Luck and Fate in the Tea Leaves

Tasseomancy or Tea Leaf Reading is probably as old as the invention of drinking cups. Some claim it originated in China, but it seems to have been native to Scotland, Ireland, and England before trade with China developed, and came to America with the earliest settlers. Learn how to select a cup, how to choose and brew your tea, and how to give a tasseomantic reading -- with a full dictionary of more than 750 tea leaf images, plus 36 sample cup interiors, showing what symbols the leaves may reveal. Plus, you will learn the history of tea, the history of tea-leaf reading, the history of the special tea cups marked for cartomancy, numerology, and astrology readings (and how to collect them), as well as the history of the woman-led Tea Room Movement that made tea-leaf reading the preferred fortune-telling method of the Female Suffrage Crusade. Profusely illustrated, beautifully laid out, and deeply descriptive, this is a book to treasure or to share with a special friend.
