When you hear of the word voodoo, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? for most of us we imagine a frightening  doll with pins on her back. No one ever  associates voodoo with the word love. Meanwhile demonizing voodoo was a tactic that the West utilized in order to facilitate both slavery and colonization. So when you think of voodoo nowadays it is the perception imposed on you by the west that you think of. 

My trip to the 2018 Voodoo festival in Benin, West Africa was  life changing. It allowed me to break from the negative perception that I had regarding the values of my ancestors.  I learned that voodoo was a science, a way of life embedded in the concept of duality: that every physical entity has a spiritual reality. Voodoo regards life as 99% energy  and 1% material. Thus  it  focuses more on the spiritual (energetic) aspect of life. It was beautiful to witness the various rituals that strengthen this reality, from the offerings given to the oceans deity Mami wata;  to the captivating dancers of the earth deity  Sabata,  every aspect of nature was praised because Voodoo emphasized the  harmony between humans and nature. 

The word  I would use to describe my trip is peace. We may not be aware of it but as we fear aspect of our ancestral history, we fear aspects of ourselves. As long as there is war between who you are and who you are trying to be  you will never  find  peace. Its like an elder once told me during this trip "we never aim to reproduce the past, but as we aim to create a better future we must understand the foundation on which the present lays". This trip was created to reconcile our souls  with the past in order to create a better future for ourselves, one that welcomes PEACE .
