For over three hundred years, outsiders have tried to explain the mysteries of Haitian Vodou, and in almost every case, they have been wildly wrong. Now, a priestess who has achieved the highest initiatory level in Vodou reveals the truths:

• The links that unite Ayiti (Haiti), the first free black state, with Vodou

• The secrets of the Lwa, the spirits of Haitian Vodou
• The inside realities of this powerful, positive, spiritual tradition

This book is not an attempt to merge Vodou with another tradition. It gives an honest and respectful view of this path by a practitioner.
