I know you offer a full course for rootworkers in book form, but I would love to have topic specific class workbooks from the annual Missionary Independent Spiritual Church workshops, each topic being a specific course.

If you order a set of workshop flyers AFTER the workshops for this year, you will get this year's flyers.

The folders get thicker -- and the price goes up accordingly -- every year.

We started in 2008 with an $8.00 workshop folder containing 24 pages. In 2009 the page count increased and the price went to $9.00 for 36 pages. In 2010, after another page-count increase, the price was $10.00 for 48 pages. After additional pages were again added the next year, the price for the 2011 edition was $11.00 for 52 pages. On May 7th, 2012 we will have more pages to bind in and the cost will be $12.00 for 64 pages.

In 2013, we will go to printed book format with uniform point size and layouts on all pages, because after a certain page count, it's cheaper to print books and have them machine-bound than it is to hand-collate and hand-assemble individual flyer pages into a folder.

Is there anyway to just purchase the 2012 workshop flyers? I had ordered the folder set of files in May and found out just after that if I had waited a little while I could have also gotten the 2012 flyers included. I would really like to have a copy of the 2012 to add to my study materials. If there is no way to purchase them, are the flyers available in person if one visited the shop?

I just noticed this, and on Jan 23rd of this year I ordered the flyer booklet but I never received any of the workshop flyers, just the Lucky Mojo shop flyers. Did this change after that or did I get an old book?

Odessa -- We have all the latest additions at the shop. Just ask. There willbe a slight charge.

=========

katrink -- No, it has not changed -- each year we add more contents and raise the price, but it sounds like you got a defective binger -- that is, someone collated it wrongly and stopped halfway through. No one else has complained of this, so it must have been a fluke of hand-assembling -- but call the shop. We can send you a replacement if your copy was defective.

=========

For 2013 we are planning something different -- a real paperback book containing all the old hand-outs, plus this year's as well. The title of the new book will ne "The Black Folder," of course.

The Black Folder:
Personal Communications on the Mastery of Hoodoo
edited by cat yronwode
136 Pages, $12.00
(Missionary Independent Spiritual Church)

From 2002 through 2013, the Lucky Mojo Curio Company offered an assortment of
informational "shop flyers" to all in-store, and mail-order customers, as well
as to in-person students in catherine yronwode's classes and apprenticeships.
These "shop flyers" featured basic information about African American hoodoo
drawn from catherine's book "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice." Meanwhile, from
2008 through 2013, at the Missionary Independent Spiritual Church annual Hoodoo
Heritage Workshops, attendees who came to receive hands-on training in the
practice of conjure and other forms of world folk-magic received hand-out flyers
describing the spells, recipes, and methods of practice being taught by
catherine and a stellar line-up of her colleagues and those who had trained
under her.

Every year, all of the current and previous three-hole-punched
information sheets -- the Lucky Mojo Shop Flyers and the Hoodoo Heritage
Festival Workshop Hand-Outs -- were collected together into a black
school-report cover, which we called "The Black Folder," and were sold to
attendees and by mail order to those who could not attend in person.

As the years went on, the content of The Black Folder grew and grew and grew,
until there were so many pages that they could no longer easily fit into a
single report cover ... and so we put together the complete set of all of the
past Missionary Independent Spiritual Church Hoodoo Heritage Workshop flyers,
plus a complete set of all of the Lucky Mojo Curio Company shop flyers into a
136 page professionally printed BOOK. The name of the book is "The Black Folder"
-- but don't let the name (or the cover) fool you -- it's a regular 8 1/2" x 11"
trade paperback book, like nothing else available anywhere.

When you order "The Black Folder: Personal Communications on the Mastery of Hoodoo" here's what you will get:

I don't really buy spell books because frankly most of them are crap. But I want to take the correspondence course so I've been buying the required materials. So far I have the hoodoo herb book and the black folder.

I've got to say I love them both. I was skimming through the black folder, and I really liked the section on candle divination.

I think it's a really unique practice. I rarely use free standing candles but the glass encased candle information seems to be really practical for me. I'm trying to memorize the correspondences.

Tomorrow I'm going to be buying the candle book required for the correspondence class.

I haven't signed up for the class, but I figured having the required supplies (books and I think a cd set) in advance to signing up will make the cost burden easier than buying it all at once.

I know this isn't really a question post, but I just right I should say how impressed with the books so far.

I want to rally back the return of the yearly Black Folder. I have requested a flyer from this year's festival in my last two orders and sadly did not receive one either time. So now I am willing to pay for the entire set. I figure there has to be at least 50 people who were not able to make it to the workshops this year and who would love to order the set of flyers. So please show your interest too in the comeback of the yearly Black Folder. I mean go back and read the descriptions, http://missionaryindependent.org/workshops.html .

If you request it, they will come. They will most definitely come.

I'm sorry you didn't receive the requested flyers. There is a reasonable explanation which is they didn't have anymore copies available at the time your order was shipped. Please check in periodically when placing an order to see if they are available at that time. I know because I called to check about not receiving them as well. As to "the mini Black Folder 2014", I believe we all are waiting on The Black Folder Part 2. So stay tuned as many new things are on it's way to us from LM this too shall come to pass

I know I can't PM Miss Cat, so the only other place I can think of is here...I BELIEVE that a particular spell that I trimmed out of one of Miss Cat's books (I needed to minimize as I work privately out of my car so I trimmed out from all the books the *most* important spells for myself...now in doing so there is a break up spell using a break up/divorce candle and it tells you exactly what to do, until I realized reading it as I was organizing my spell files by subject...that I cut out the breakup PRAYER that looks like was immediately AFTER the paragraph explaining how to set it up...I was wondering (I'm thinking it was from this book...but not 100%) if someone could PM me the breakup prayer I'm to say every time I light the divorce candle anointed with break up oil. I've got my candle in the mail so a bit of time to find out the prayer but just very embarrassing...

Good Morning,

I am in the process of ordering 'The Black Folder Book'
I would like to know what other products I should purchase that I can use with the book. It's easier and more secretive if I do a bulk order. :D

M_beth13 -

First, if your user/screenname M_beth is your actual name, it may be easy for someone to find out who you are and what your doing. So if secrecy is important I would suggest changing your username and we will do our best to go back and change replying posts to you to your new username. Since you're fairly new this shouldn't be a big issue.

As for the Black Folder, there is so many different things in this book, without knowing what you plan to work, its hard to help you determine what else to suggest you order. If you check the Lucky Mojo page on this book here: http://www.luckymojo.com/blackfolder.html there is a table of contents that will show you the subjects written about. If you let us know what your immediate interests are from here we can suggest appropriate products.

Hi, m_beth13 --

Books are a really good place to start, and we have basically four kinds of books that we publish -- those that are filled with

* spells for specific conditions (for example, "Cash Box Conjure" for money spells and "Deliverance!" for uncrossing and clearing spells, Hoodoo Return and Reconciliation Spells for restoration of love),

* spells that utilize a certain form of working (for example, The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic to work with candles and lamps, Hoodoo Spiritual Baths for baths and floor washes, Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic for working with botanical and mineral ingredients,

* ways to foretell the future (for example, Throwing the Bones to learn osteomancy and Lithomancy for reading stones and coins),

* spells that derive from a specific regional culture (for example North Asian Magic and Trolldom),

* compilations that contain all four of the above (for example, The Black Folder).

If you are interested in knowing the most popular and general-purpose spiritual supplies -- those would be Chinese Wash, Money Drawing Oil, Love Me Oil, Uncrossing Bath Crystals, 13 Herb Bath, and Peace Water.

Good luck to you!
