The Kingdom of the Living and the Kingdom of the dead stand side by side and those who travel between the two glimpse a world often shrouded by mystery and misunderstanding. Join Professor Porterfield as he teaches about the traditions and methods of working with the Graveyard and the Dead in hoodoo, rootwork, and conjure. Learn how to enter and leave the Graveyard, the diagram of a grave from headboard to footboard, how to purchase Graveyard dirt, as well as a variety of traditional works and tricks done in this separate Kingdom. Follow along as the Professor acts as guide and councilor in journeying between the gateposts and into another time, place, and land: the Kingdom of the Dead.
