A City Houngan's Life Among the Lwa

Magic: Simple Candle Work


I appreciate that cost is a major concern to MANY people when it comes to whether or not they can afford to commission a working to be done on their behalf. Lamps and Wanga can be expensive, certainly; you pay not only for the professional’s time, but also the supplies they have to use in the way they’re traditionally trained to, plus the spirits themselves receive their share…. it adds up quick.

I personally have tried as much as I can to keep costs down (joking to myself that it’s Vodou, not a car payment) but there’s a limit to how low things can really go when it comes to Vodou’s traditional ways of working. I set my prices as low as I really can, but I have (by popular demand)  added a new form of work that I am able to perform on your behalf for a much lower cost.

For $30.00, I will dress a vigil candle for you and work it like an Illuminasyon (as seen on the Lamp Magic page); I give it one night of strong prayers and command, place a paper with your intention underneath it, and allow it to burn to completion on my altars. It is a LOT less complicated than the full Illuminasyon and takes much less in the way of supplies, so I am fully comfortable offering this at this low price.

Please consult the Hiring Houngan Matt page for my list of rules regarding what kinds of work I will and will NOT perform on a client’s behalf.

Vodou Boston is a teaching blog as well as a look inside the life of a mostly average city guy who just happens to be a Houngan Asogwe of Haitian Vodou.

My name’s Houngan Matt… my initiatory name and title is Bozanfe Bo Oungan Daguimin Minfort, pitit Antiola Bo Manbo, pitit Selide Bo Manbo, pitit LaMerci Bo Manbo… and so on into time. Im a Houngan Asogwe serving at home in Kansas City and in my spiritual mother’s temple in Boston (and Jacmel, Haiti)… our House is called Sosyete Nago, in honor of the Nago Nation of lwa. Im a typical Bostonian-turned-Midwesterner with a few extra dimensions to his world (tell me, how many Bostonians do you know who serve African and Haitian ancestral spirits through the lens of Haitian Vodou? Actually… more than you may know.)

This is a no holds barred blog; Im not one to limit myself in fear of what you’re going to think. Be prepared for a blog where noone’s gonna pull any punches, and you and I will get along just fine.

I can always be reached at Houngan @ VodouBoston . com for any questions, setting appointments for readings or work, or even just social mail; I am here to serve YOU, and YOU are what is important to me. No person and no question is too small.

Look for me on Facebook, too! Bozanfe Bon Oungan is my username
