"The Santeria Experience is an autobiographical account of initiation into a clandestinely-practiced religion. Ms. Gonzalez-Wippler rewards her readers with the raw emotional impact of her personal encounters with the religion as both a researcher and an initiate. She is the first writer to present to an English-speaking audience the full emotional impact and ritual complexities of Santeria."
-from Foreward by Andres Perez y Mena
"The Santeria Experience fills an important need for a definitive treatise about a religion-magical cult that reputedly has millions of indoctrinated followers in the Caribbean Islands, South America, and Latin American sectors of the United States. Migene Gonzalez-Wippler is a brilliant narrator whose vivid first-hand descriptions of exotic rituals will be instructive and fascinating to professional and lay persons alike. Replete with a comprehensive glossary and bibliography, this book should provide a rewarding experience for all who are intrigued by the advantages and pitfalls of this widespread, mind-expanding phenomenon."
