Every item on an altar, shrine, or dedicated working space communicates something to the spirits and holds its own ashe, its unique form and resonance of energy. Figuring out how to design your space, what to place there, and what offerings to present is important to building a solid foundation for your rootworking practice.

This guide with several different classic altar designs may be a helpful reference for that process. To learn more about how to set up the altar and understand the layout designs, check out this tutorial.

Why is this content protected?

The internet has become an incredible platform for sharing about rootwork and helping our community connect with each other to reclaim our heritage in these traditions. Unfortunately, publicly posting also opens up a whole world of possibilities for cultural appropriation, spreading misinformation, and other issues…

For all these reasons, the Library is only accessible to those who have an approved Library account in order to keep all the content in the hands of those who truly can practice hoodoo. Only people of African descent have the ancestral link to rootworking traditions that is necessary to practice them.
