Hello from Joshua

Unread post by Orunlade » Fri Nov 25, 2011 5:58 pm

Hello all,

My name's Joshua, most people just call me Josh. I'm a paramedic and EMS manager/educator currently living and working in North Carolina. Originally I'm from West Virginia, and have had a small amount of exposure to conjure and folk magic growing up in the Appalachians. My great grandmother used to call it "boogering".

My other exposure to magic has come by way of Western Occultism over the last 20 years. While I love the intellectualism of Victorian Occultism, I'm really looking for something more authentic and organic. I found Cat's book Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic some years ago, and just recently began to recognize the similarities between African-American Conjure and the folk magic I was exposed to as a kid. Incidentally, I'm also a Babalawo, having taken my Tefa in Havana in 2004.

Having read through many other posts in this forum, I'm well aware of the distinct nature of Hoodoo regardless to any similarities between it and other systems. I'm here to experience and learn about it on its own terms, so no worries. Hopefully, I'll be taking Cat's correspondence course beginning early next year.

Looking forward to growing,
Joshua

It's great to begin meeting all of you, and thank you for the warm welcome.

@ Lee: I'm in Lexington. Good to know there's someone close. I also know there's a graduate or two of Cat's correspondance course in Greensboro, about 45 minutes from here.
