    In the book ,The Serpent and the Rainbow: A Harvard Scientist's Astonishing Journey into the Secret Societies of Haitian Voodoo, Zombis, and Magic ISBN-10: 0684839296 ,ISBN-13: 978-0684839295
    it said there was a Voodoo practice, (intentionally not saying Youdun) of keeping the spirits of ones loved ones after they die in jars, and every now and then letting them out in the parks and forests to fly among the trees like birds, is this true or was this some racist stuff put in by the white author, (Wade Davis) to derogatize the Voudun religion?

    Yes, like Darkside said, this is a real practice. The govi pot is used in many sosyetes. My wife's people back in Senyah Beraku also make use of something like the govi pot.

    In order to answer your question, Ankhur.... "why would someone want to imprison the soul of someone they love or enslave it?"

    .... takes an understanding of the concept of soul, according to Vodou. The spirit housed in the govi is a former living member of the sosyete that holds the govi. As such, the spirit has an honored place in the sosyete. Shortly, after death, the spirit is collected from "water" and placed in the govi. Once in the govi, the vodouisants of the house can ask questions regarding what the spirit wishes in death. To see spirit in the govi speak is a very disturbing phenomenon and a many Vodouisants who have witnessed this speak about about how eery and unnerving it is.
