    Re: Learning obeah - Kingstonian studies 'high science' in P

    I am very interested to know more about this subject....

    Is it used positively, or negatively, or both?

    Is it the same as what they call voodoo in Haiti?

    In Cuba they have Santería (and in Brasil, where it is called Candomblé) , which is used for healing. A mix of Catholic saints and African gods, like Chango, Imaja, etc.
    I was at a ceremony....
    The priest started talking fluent Yoruba......

    No but both can be used within each other or interchangeable.

    not sure what you mean.

    I can speak 4 languages, with a smattering of 2 more, but not Yoruba!!

    No, the Cuban high priest - &quot;babalawo&quot; - started speaking Yoruba....
    fluently, while he only learnt the very basics, I was told later when I asked about it.
