Thank you so much for your response Catherine. Your absolutely correct in that if a practitioner is not familiar with what these spells look like (curse,hex,jinx), they wouldn't be able to properly diagnose such a condition for themselves or others. I never even bothered to look at from this perspective of thinking. I have always felt drawn to conjure, but have struggled greatly with how I was taught to view such things. I do see myself becoming a practitioner at some point, but I feel that I first must answer questions within myself. I hope that makes sense. As some say, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. I have the utmost respect for how you choose to pass along the things you were taught as it shows great respect and reverence to those who taught you. Thank you for providing a much needed perspective in learning all aspects of rootwork and conjure. 🙏

This is just a simple reminder to all Forum users who are also current students or past graduates of the Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course:

You probably know this already, because i tell it to every prospective student during our interview time together, but ... once you sign up as a student you will have access to the private student / graduate portion of the Forum, where more than 7,000 posts from the year 2003 to the present reside, most of them dealing with material published in the course book or contingent to the homework.

If you are a student or graduate, then your Forum permissions should have been set so that when you log in, you can see, read, and post within the private sub-forum.

If you are a student or graduate and CANNOT see, read, or post within the private sub-forum, please contact nagasiva yronwode and ask him to help.

At the present time, the best way to contact him would either be through his personal account at Facebook (if you are his friend there) or through this Forum message thread:

Trouble Posting / Cannot Post
trouble-posting-cannot-post-t102.html

Hoping to see all of my new students and my old, as well as the past graduates in the students and grads sub-forum!

I will surely consider enrolling for this curse in due time.
But the issue is that I live in Africa. How do you reconcile :
Sending over assignments
Mailing finished assignments to you

There may seem to be obvious bottlenecks here

Unless you have a trans-shipper, it would be impossible for you to take the course from a nation to which we do not ship. The prerequisites include a large quantity of specific herbs, oils, incenses, powders, bath crystals, minerals, roots, and books -- with a total retail value of about $200.00, to be purchased in at least four lots, over a four-month (or longer) time span. After that, there is an interview (no problem, regardless of location), and then the course book itself must be shipped.

Hello, Rose_Joy,

I wish i knew who you were, but your user-name doesn't ring a bell and i can't find anyone in my database who has the email you used to sign up here. I do remember your posts here recently, and i do not recall getting to know a prospective student with that life situation.

However, if you are a student of mine, please contact nagasiva on Facebook or via email, as would have been explained to you when we had our pre-course interview, and let him know your student number so you can post your introduction in the private student group here at the forum and get your Student Practitioner avatar. Thanks.

See you on Saturday.

I am sorry for misunderstanding that you thought I was already a student, I am not. But I am looking forward to it, since I paied for it online. Hope this helps!!! You can check the order for 1 course under intials N K to Fremont, Ca shipping.

Rose_joy --

Prospective students cannot actually buy the course book until i interview them and we agree on terms and conditions. The order button will work, but the card won't be charged. I only enroll students whom i know by name and have spoken with and developed a connection to. Have you made all of the required purchases? Are we friends on Facebook? If not, try me for friendship is a good way to start. Thanks!

Hi, folks --

This week, nagasiva and i have been going over the list of people who have stated that they want to take my course.

We started with 40 names on the list, and we have been checking off who has purchased what, who has become a member of this forum, and who has dropped off the list due to lack of contact or failure to purchase the required books and supplies after one year without contact.

Our software and database programming updates have streamlined the process -- THANK YOU NAGAIVA! -- and we are reaching out by phone and email to every person on the Prospective Clients list.

To all of you who have been thinking about about taking the course, there is no better time than this to move forward with your plans.

Thank you too, all my students, for making this program possible.

'm interested in taking your hoodoo course. I have been involved in craft-related activities and herb work all of my life, and have been drawn to and studying hoodoo the past year. I've been reading tarot for awhile, and am now learning to read and to scry regular playing cards. I am particularly interested in scrying and also doll work -- helping people from a distance when they might not be able, or feel comfortable, attending ceremony.

I'm working through the requirements for your course and hope to apply in the spring.

Hello Cat! My name is Jesse Rodriguez and I’ve been studying and making all the required purchases. The only purchase I have left is the course book. I hope you add me to that list! I tried to add you a long time ago to Facebook but it wouldn’t let me and so I’m following you instead. I did add Nagasiva but he said I’d want to speak to you instead. If you like, we can arrange that though not sure what are the best steps here.

Hi, Jesse!

You have indeed been added to the prospective students list. I do not see, however, that you have made all of the required purchases. For instance, i do not see that you ordered Chinese Wash, a packet of repelling / harmful incense powders, or an herb mixture, et cetera. Is it possible that you have two client records that ought to be merged? I show 40 customers in the city in which you live...

RSVP!

Thanks for checking, possibly because I placed the order yesterday that you may not see it, also I don't believe my card was charged yet, I only have one account. Order number 110795 is a really big order including Chinese wash, the herb mix, bath crystals... I may be at a lack of incense powders though, I have crown of success and John the conqueror. I'll put that order in when I order the book, got to wait for some cash flow first. I love incense, if I spend too much time shopping for incense here I may end up with a whole lot of incense and no book! lol. So happy to have ended up at LM, you made my journey a lot shorter! Let me know if I'm missing anything specific.

So I made the list woohoo! If I buy the course book and the remaining items what am I supposed to do next? I know you still need to meet me, I guess I'll save you the click clack of the keyboard since you'll probably explain it to me when we meet virtually. By the way I'd love to take a trip to see you in person and the rest of the crew.

Hi, Acejay -- Once your order is downloaded and charged. we will see where you are at. The way it works is you first buy all of the required materials and the required reading books. You cannot and should not order the course book yet -- it just gets in the way of the flow. We will track your progress, and when you have all of the requirements met, you and i will talk for about an hour, and then you can make your final decision to order the course book. See full details here:

http://luckymojo.com/mojocourse.html

And thanks for your interest.

How exciting! :) I hope I am up for consideration, and just wanted to poke my head in to say "Me, please!"

I'd just like to say that I do have all of the recommended reading books and have been studying away, as well as trying out all the supplies I've purchased. I know I'm still a relative newbie to the forum, though, and am enjoying getting to know everyone and learning from the group.

Thank you for your time and consideration, Miss cat!

Hello, FiachnaRose --

We seem to have a problem tracking you in our database. This is no big deal as far as regular customer service and order fulfillment, but it makes it impossible to follow what you have purchased in terms of required materials. We have

Client #E72785 first ordered on 6/1/2015
Client #E87142 first ordered on 7/31/2018

one email
one phone number
two billing names / two shipping names = a total of three different names
two street addresses
two cities
one state

I am pretty sure that both of these are you -- but i cannot merge the records until i know that they are both you, and which is your actual name and address. Did you recently legally change your name when you renewed your credit card?

Just sign me,

Miss cat, I did recently change my name, a couple of years back, and didn't even think about that causing a problem, but duh! My apologies!

On my online account, I see my 2015 orders and 2018 orders together, so I just assumed you had me under Fia/Fiachna Rose for everything. So sorry for the confusion!

Both of those clients are me :). The Beaverton, OR address is the current, correct one, and Fiachna Rose is my legal name (and Fia is the short version.)

I hope that helps clarify, but please don't hesitate to email if you need anything else cleared up. Thank you so much!

Okay -- got it! I merged the two accounts, marked you as a prospective student, and worked out your purchases on our "course check-off list" in the database. You have purchased everything except the books directly from us, and i presume you bought those online / elsewhere, because you say you have them.

Next step. Please contact the shop during business hours and ask for a course interview appointment. It will be on a Monday or Tuesday, 4:00 PM Pacific Time unless you need a different time. I don;t know what dates are still open in October, but Niki can look up on the calendar. I look forward to speaking with you.

@Catherine, Hi! Just friendly checking in since my last big order, to know if I'm missing anything. No rush. I'm actually enjoying my time before the course, I got creative and started taking notes using OneNote, it's extremely useful especially thanks to it's search feature.

@FiachnaRose, I think we will be taking the course at the same time when ever that is, I hope we can work together and learn from each other!

AceJay --

Here is what you still need:

IPD -- repelling, harmful, or vengeful
SPD -- repelling, harmful, or vengeful
Resin Incense
Charcoal
And be my friend on Facebook (if you are not already)

Very close!

Hello Catherine, thanks for looking! Please tell me how to add you to Facebook, I've tried and the button is greyed out. I think Facebook does this on purpose because it knows we don't know each other? Facebook is holding me back from making friends :(

Sorry, what is SPD/IPD?

AceJay,

I believe IPD is incense powder and SPD is Sachet Powder. The resin incense burns on the charcoal.

Dear AceJay,

JayDee is correct. When you receive a shipment from us, your invoice / packing list is included, and the SKU code for each item is recordedin with the quantity. IPD-HOO-xxx comprises the Hoodoo Incense Powders. SPD-HOO-xxx comprises the Hoodoo Sachet Powders. And so it goes.

If you scroll down our Lucky Mojo Curio Co. Complete Inventory page --

http://www.luckymojo.com/lucky-mojo-inventory.html

-- you will see all of our SKUs in alphabetical order, with full names and prices!

Hi I'm very interested in enrolling in the hoodoo correspondence course. I have inquired prior but if I meet the criteria, I feel I would be ready to take the next steps towards enrolling, my question is do i have to speak with some one or set up any kind of initial appointment? Thanks hope to hear back!

Nabeyeta365,

The first step is to make all of the required purchases. After you've done so, you call up to the store and ask to speak with and ask to be set up for a course interview. I dealt with Yosé but in a few posts above I see Miss Cat mentions that Niki also handles this. They will check to ensure you have made all of the required purchases and schedule your interview with Miss Cat thereafter.

Hello all! I am Brandon and I am interested in taking the HRCC, but I know I have to some work to do with familiarizing myself with the shop and making required purchases, so I am looking into that now! I believe I've purchased a product or two from Lucky Mojo through Eclectic by Nature; however, I completely understand needing the purchase history on the shop. I looked through the curriculum and some of the Q&A on this feed, but I didn't find my exact answer. I'm sorry if I've missed it, though. So far, my experience has been reading some items online, purchasing some products, general discussion/research and I've read Old Style Conjure: Hoodoo, Rootwork, & Folk Magic by Starr Casas. I live in Southwestern Virginia.

I have used Van Van Oil in the past and I understand the convenience of purchasing it from a trusted source, but I would also like to be able to make it for myself and for some friends as a gift when needed. Will this course teach me an actual recipe / process for this using essential oils? I am not limiting myself to this oil, but as an example--will I leave with instructions/recipes such as these? I know there may be proprietary information not shared.

Although the reading list is all required and all important, based on my very brief introductions, is there a book someone thinks I might be best served by starting with?

I am so excited about becoming a potential student one day! I know I have work to put in before I can be considered, which is fine, because I need to practice some money drawing and saving to join this course without any additional stress! =) Also I sent a Facebook friend request as I believe is part of the process!

Hiya Brandon,

It's so exciting you're thinking about applying to the course! Hopefully we'll see you on the other side soon.

Any of the books you will find of value as root worker despite being a student or not so it really doesn't matter in my opinion. Just start with one that focuses on magic that appeals to you.

This course will give you very detailed instructions on how to go about creating your own formulas but lucky mojo will not give the recipes to their formulas. Making and selling hand-made goods is how they support free outreach programs like this forum, their radio shows, and thousands of web pages.

There is however a recipes page that you might find useful. Ms Cat has done decades worth of tedious research collecting and compiling and comparing different recipes for traditional formulas has been gracious enough to share some of that knowledge with us.

Hi Dr. Darensbourg,

Thank you so much for your helpful reply and sharing in my excitement! It's so funny you linked me to that page. I was perusing recipes online a few days ago and had somehow stumbled upon that page and meant to bookmark it. I haven't been able to come across it again--so I am especially thankful for the synchronicity here.

Awesome! There's been a lot of that going on today in the forums! I encourage you to read the information on that web page carefully. What Ms Cat is doing there is making comparisons between different recipes, debunking those that are phony as they relate to the tradition of hoodoo and validating others that, indeed, have a foundation in or meet the criteria of working in the tradition.

Good luck!

Hi everyone!

I am so happy I have found Lucky Mojo and super excited to eventually try to sign up for this course. :)

I live in Northern Europe (The Netherlands) and would love to connect with anyone that is African American. I am most definitely interested to build up a long lasting friendship and connection as opposed to only just help for a future assignment though.

My cultural background is quite a mixed bag, I was born in Spain but I have a Northern African background from both my mother and father. Aside from this I also have spent a third of my life in the Middle East which has also influenced me a big deal.

Would love to hear back and connect!

Hi, Dmilud --

Welcome to the Forum and thanks for your interest in my course. Did you know that there is a graduate of my course and professional spiritual practitioner in the Netherlands? He is known as Balthazar. You may look him up at AIRR, the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers, at http://readersandrootworkers.com -- and i think he may be a good friend to have if you go forward as a student. He lives in the Netherlands but was born in South Africa, and is fluent in English and Dutch. Check him out!

By the way, i am in very small part North African -- through a mixture of Spanish, Portuguese, Sephardic Jewish, and Amazigh (a.k.a. Berber or "Moorish") on my paternal grandmother's line.

Thank you for your reply Ms. Cat!

Wow that is indeed a very interesting background. My biological father's side (long story) comes mainly from Morocco and Algeria, older generation also from Niger as far as I could gather which unfortunately isn't as much as I'd wish since I have not been able to establish contact with them. As I said, long story that probably deserves to be talked over a cup of coffee. :)

I have contacted Balthazar through facebook, it would definitely be great to get acquainted with him as he lives in the neighbour city! Talking about acquaintances, how would I go about sending you a friend request in FB? It seems it is only possible to "follow" your profile. I have read it is a requirement to meet prior to taking the course and apart from that it would obviously be a pleasure.

Hi, Dmilud --

As far as i know, anyone can send me a friend request. Be sure you are looking at the page with me in green clothes. Someone made a page "about" me in which i am wearing blue clothes -- and i have nothing to do with that.

I am getting ready to place my 5th and final order of required class materials (of course, I bought many other things, too), and then to request an interview.

I had several things to finish before I could apply to take the class -- one was to relicense as an EMT, which required my full attention. But the road is clear before me now. I even had a dream the other night about studying and apprenticing with Catherine. It was very positive and heartening. I hope it is a good omen.

I've been reading all the books cover to cover, trying a few things. I've found a black church near my town that I plan to attend at least once a month. I've read the course requirements again and again, and listened to many of the radio shows. I'm very excited to get started.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Hello, Desert Lavender,

Thank you for your thorough attention to detail. I schedule course interviews every Monday and Tuesday, if there are applicants. It helps use with the record-keeping if, when you place your final order for the required materials, you write in the message box something to the effect of "Hi. I am a prospective student of cat's. Please mark my product orders in the database." This will alert the order entry person to set you as a prospective student and we will be able to locate you and reach out for a contact date for the interview.

Thanks -- and i look forward to speaking with you.

Hi. I ordered the Baker’s Dozen and Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic last night. I picked books on the required list and suggested reading list for my first order. I’ve been studying on my own for a few years. I live in an area where Hoodoo is practiced and we even have a shop that sells spiritual supplies. I’ve been drawn to folk magic for years. My mom used to take me out foraging for herbs and roots to make medicine when I was little. I love Lucky Mojo’s oils and have purchased several on EBay a few years ago. I have been wanting to take this course since 2013 but was unable to at the time. The time is right now so I made the first step and ordered some books. Next order will be for supplies on the list and the Black Folder.

Hello everyone,

I am interested in taking the course and learning. In April through July 2019, I made the required purchases, and I have posted in the forum. And I know I have to connect on Facebook. My email is connected to this username if you all need to look me up.

Have a nice day, 😊

Hi, Pisces Lady.

Currently my Facebook friends list is full, but every few days i delete old "dead" accounts, so if you wait a while and send me a friend request, i will respond.

Call the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. shop at 707-887-1521 and ask to speak to Nikki, Yose, or Leslie -- then ask them to check off your required purchases and get you set up for an interview with me on the next available Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks for jumping over all of the hurdles, and i hope to talk to you soon.

Mama J,

Hello and welcome to the forum. I moved your post to this thread since you are not asking about purchases for the course. Your page can be private but to enroll, you need to verify you have connections within the African-American community and the easiest way to do this is by verifying you have them in your circle of friends on Facebook. If this is a concern though I would call the shop and discuss it with them, they may know alternative ways of confirming that I am unaware of. I hope this helps.

Call the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. shop at 707-887-1521

Hello Mama J,

As part of the requirements for taking the course, you would need to become Facebook friends with Miss cat (once her friends list clears room for new people). She could then see your posts, to verify that you have African American friends, even if you set your account to the "friends only" state of privacy.

Good luck.

Thank you for the quick response. I do not have a lot of friends out side of my family. Are friends made through new contacts on facebook and fellow students acceptable? (For homework assignment 2) I have never had a facebook account if that says anything about how private of a person I am. Thank you. Mama J.

Mama J --

Folk magic is part of the larger community structure of various cultures. One could not hope to study Italian folk magic without knowing Italian people, or Jewish folk magic without knowing Jewish people. You can't become a baseball player without a team. You can't play poker one-handed.

If having friends is not something you do -- and i know that many people prefer to live without friends -- then joining a community-based form of magic would not serve you well. If you are looking to find black friends now, at this sudden point in your life, just to qualify for my course, then i would recommend that instead of trying to force yourself to do something so far outside your normal interest area, that you read my public books, which is a solitary occupation, then perhaps hang out in this forum for a while, and see how you feel about it in a few months.

In the meantime, these books contain a lot of information on African American hoodoo -- and other cultural forms of folk magic as well. They are reasonably priced and packed with information you can use:

Hi, hope all is well. I was planning to come to the shop tomorrow to get a few Lucky mojo products my local store carries but sold out of in Oakland,Ca and I was wondering for myself can I let someone know if I already had purchased several of the books (before and still have them) to get the requirements accounted for for the course as I now am seeking to submit myself for the enrollment process. Or would I need to purchase again?

(Forgive me if this had already been asked)

Also I originally baught hoodoo herb and root in 2016 as well as papers in my shoe but wasn’t ready for a commitment to schooling but still had the desire as I still have since child hood but I’ve come to a place where I want to become skilled knowledgeable and I am ready.

I feel I meet the posted qualifications with the exception that Miss.Cat I can’t befriend yet because there is no link for me to do so but I do follow her and luck mojo and seek to be able to befriend her.

Hi, Chris107 --

Just bring a photo on your cell phone of any of the required books you have already purchased -- we are fne with that.

When you show up, go into the office and let someone there know your name, show them a photo, and ask them to enter you as a "Prospective Student." They will then make check-offs on all the products you have ever purchased, and they can make a print-out for you that will show you any otems you still need to purchase.

As far as i know, people are sending me friend requests every day and i am accepting them, so there should be no hang-up there, as long as i stay under the 5,000-firneds limit. (Which i always do.)

Because i get so many friend requests, i am more inclined to confirm friendship with someone who has many mutual friends with me. If we have no mutual friends, it may be difficult for me to get a feel for who you are and what you are all about. But, in either case, i am friending folks all the time. Knowing your real name in the shop may help as well.

Perhaps we shall meet!
