Amid the vibrant backdrop of New Orleans culture, we discuss the true essence of Voodoo, a practice that has been plagued by misconceptions and Hollywood myths.
Join us as Mambo Brandi walks us through the critical understanding of Voodoo as not just a religion, but a spiritual practice, tradition, and way of life that transcends the negative stereotypes. She debunks the myths around the use of dolls, shedding light on their role in positive outcomes like healing and love. We also explore the fascinating syncretism of Voodoo with Catholicism, a testament to the resilience of enslaved Africans who preserved their beliefs against all odds.

On a personal note, Mambo Brandi draws parallels between Voodoo ethics and business practices, particularly the "return to sender" concept, reminding us of the power of intentions and the consequences of our actions.
