Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Ross Heaven is a loyal initiate son who communicates the Vodou tradition faithfully.”
Bon Mambo Racine, Priestess of Haitian Vodou

“Ross Heaven does for Vodou what Castaneda did for shamanism.”
Prediction magazine

Written by an initiate of Haitian Vodou, this book goes beyond the stereotypes and misunderstandings to reveal Vodou as one of the most powerful shamanic traditions. The author explains why these ancient healing practices are important for the modern world and how secret Vodou techniques can be used by anyone as safe and effective means of spiritual healing and personal development.
Providing practical hands-on exercises drawn from all aspects and stages of the Vodou tradition, Vodou Shaman shows readers how to contact the spirit world and communicate with the loa (the angel-like inhabitants of the Other World), the gede (the spirits of the ancestors), and djabs (Nature spirits) for healing purposes. The author examines soul journeying and warrior-path work in the Vodou tradition and looks at the psychological principles that make them effective. The book also offers exercises in specific spiritual healing techniques, including the use of herbs and magical baths, ways to read and rebalance the energy body, removal of spirit intrusions and unhealthy energies, restoration of Ashe (spiritual Power), and preparation for the advanced technique of soul retrieval.
Ross Heaven is a shamanic teacher and Vodou Houngan. He served for many years as an apprentice in this tradition, including spending the requisite time in solitary vigil and performing the full sequence of rituals necessary to complete his initiation into the Vodou priesthood. He is the author of The Journey to You and Spirit in the City and lives in England.
