Maria van Daalen (1950) is een dichter/auteur van Querido in Amsterdam sinds 1989. Zij publiceerde 7 dichtbundels, 1 verhalenbundel, 2 wetenschappelijke artikelen en vele gedichten, verhalen en essays in tijdschriften en kranten. Zij heeft gedoceerd aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Creative Writing) en lesgegeven aan de Schrijversvakschool Amsterdam (poëzie en oudere literatuur). Van Daalen houdt regelmatig lezingen over Haïtiaanse vodou en was adviseur van Tropenmuseum (Amsterdam) en Afrika Museum (Nijmegen) voor hun vodou-kunst-tentoonstellingen. Van Daalen werkt aan een boek over vodou.
In 2007 werd zij op Haïti gewijd als ‘manbo asogwe’ (vodoupriesteres, hoogste graad) in Haïtiaanse vodou. Zij is lid van de vodou-huizen Société La Fraicheur Belle Fleur Guinea en Sosyete Gade Nou Leve; Sosyete Larkansyel Ginen is haar eigen congregatie (Almere). ‘Larkansyel Ginen’ = ‘de regenboog van het paradijs’.
Van Daalens officiële vodou-naam is ‘Fouye Racine Bon Manbo’ (=’de goede priesteres die naar de essentie zoekt’), maar iedereen kent haar als ‘manbo Maria’.
Manbo Maria werkt al jaren voor cliënten. Zij heeft een eigen altaarkamer thuis! Zij doet ‘readings’ (om te zien wat er aan de hand is), ‘cleansings’ (het spiritueel schoonmaken van mensen en huizen – vooral spookhuizen!), kleine en grote inwijdingen (in Nederland en op Haïti) en zij helpt bij alle mogelijke andere vragen, zoals ‘ik wil een nieuwe baan’, ‘ik moet m’n huis verkopen’, ‘ik wil graag een partner’. Zij werkt onder leiding van Papa Hector, met uitstekend resultaat. Haar tarieven zijn schappelijk.

Personal Statement:
“I am a Sanse Priestess working within the Gade Nou Leve Society. This society is ran by Houngan Hector, who is the world’s leading Sanse Priest, head of the International Society, and carries in his bloodline the origination of the Sanse tradition. As a family member of this temple, I am given the true and real teachings of this art. I feel it is my duty to carry this beautiful tradition forward as it so closely relates to the very special work I have channeled. As a Priestess, my work is to help people heal and to find their own path. I offer classes and readings and Priestess services world wide.”
– Mama Shoshana Des Chenes, Sanse Espiritismo Priestess



Once a Sosyete has grown so large and has so many well trained and qualified priests, it is normal for the Priests to form their own child Sosyetes.  We are blessed to have quite a few ourselves, which we present to you below:


Sosyete Gade Nou Leve #2 is centred in South Wales, UK with members from all over the United Kingdom. Established in 2009, the Sosyete is comprised of the god children of Papa Houngan Hector, and as such we are honoured to receive our training from both our Papa and also the wonderful Houngans and Manbos in his house. As his children, we strive to reflect Papa Hector’s principles and standards in both our services and day to day relations – we are an open and positive group who work together as a family and we welcome people who wish to learn more about the path that we follow. Our members include Hounsi Lave Tet in the Haitian T’cha T’cha lineage as well as Caballos de Misterio within 21 Divisions (Dominican) Vudu. We generally hold four open fets per year at which non initiates are welcome. For details on these, please contact gadenouleveuk@gmail.com
