Trample on the dust of the Dead lightly...
This sentiment, held by old-time Hoodoos and
traditional Rootworkers, is a subtle reminder of
the importance of observing certain behaviors
while in a graveyard. Knock before entering.
Be careful where you walk. Don't step on graves
or sit on tombstones. Always ask before taking
anything-even stones, flowers, sticks and leaves.
Never leave trash, always greet the gatekeeper
and always come prepared with a pocket full of
pennies, silver dimes and a bottle of rum or
whiskey. The important thing to remember is
that you never just walk in and take something.
You must always treat the spirits with respect;
both the spirits of the deceased, as well as the
guardians of the cemeteries and the psychopomps.
Workin' in da Boneyard is a primer for conjurers
seeking a tangible connection to their past, their
ancestors and the Spirit World by working with
graveyards and graveyard dirt. From practical
issues of safety, choosing a cemetery, locating
ancestral graves, reading gravestone signs and
symbols, avoiding haints and hauntings, to
gathering graveyard dirt and making goofer
dust, Workin' in da Boneyard has the information
needed for working effective graveyard conjure,
as well as words of caution for the ill-prepared.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
