Haiti has been a place of intense mixing of cultures, races and religions for the past 600 years. A rich soil for all kinds of traditions of healing, they span from black and white voodoo via traditional herbalism colored by African and European traditions to African bone setting and cupping, as well as Christian healing by the power of prayer. Beings from the unseen world are close, and the healer has to make his or her way in alliance to both, humans and the spirits. This class also covers how a healer in Haiti is chosen and trained by water spirits; as well as some common Haitian uses of herbs available in this part of the world, such as lemongrass, basil, and cacti; as well as the use of aromatic plants in healing baths.
