About Bonga

"Paket" handmade by Bonga
Blessings for Personal Growth and Healing

Paket contents are a mixture of soil, tree, seeds, corn meal, herbs, spices, and special objects found by Bonga – they are fused together over Bonga's firepit at his temple. The mixture is cooled and wrapped in satin or cloth. Then a rope and colorful string is spun by hand around the cloth tightly and repeated many times with prayers and song. Bonga continues this circular motion in meditation and twists the rope around the mixture to conjure a spirit and its final figure. Specific colors are chosen by Bonga to signify the properties and personalities of the vodou spirit.

Place the Paket in an area of your home, a bedside table, an altar, or even a special place at work.
