People who are newcomers to the traditions of Witchcraft & Voodoo have so many questions when they are starting out.

  • Do I need to initiate?
  • What if I’m having strange dreams?
  • Are there good resources or books out there?
  • How do I find people in my area?
  • How do I know if I am ready?
  • Where do I begin?

Join my co-host Wiccan Priestess Sable Aradia and myself, Voodoo Priestess Lilith Dorsey, as we discuss in depth taking your first steps in the traditions on our Youtube show Witchcraft & Voodoo. Together we have almost 60 years of education, training and experience in our respective traditions and we have done out best to tackle this important topic. Please let us know if there is anything we may have forgotten, or any burning questions you still may have. I remember how hard it was starting out as a young Witch and Voodoo practitioner, and while information has become more accessible, unfortunately quantity has not always meant actual quality. Watch what we have to say on the subject here :


Sable Aradia and I began this ongoing video project discussing the similarities and differences between our respective traditions of Witchcraft & Voodoo in 2016. Since then we have discussed the important issues and questions surrounding timeless topics such as : Initiation, Ancestors, Deities, Money, Sex, Divination, Food, Cultural Appropriation, Possession, Protection, and much more truth about these religions. Please catch up on the episodes that you may have missed here. As always if you have in any way enjoyed what you see here remember to like, comment, subscribe to our YouTube channels and please share !
