ConjureMan Ali, also known as Dr. Raven, is a long-time student of the occult and esotericism. Born and raised in a family with ancient ties to the magi of the Near East and the prophets and seers of antiquity, he began his journey into the occult at a young age. At birth the elders of his family recognized a spiritual calling in him and he was deemed the spiritual heir of his family's patriarch.
The inkling that his elders had about him turned out to be true: from a young age he took up the studies of the occult and made his foray into spiritual practice even beyond what was taught to him by his elders. He became an avid student of traditional occultism and took up the classical studies of Astrology, Hermeticism, Alchemy, and the Qabalah. He was adopted into the hoodoo
tradition by his first conjure teacher, who also gave him the name of Dr. Raven, which he has kept in her honor. This name was later confirmed to him by his spirits.
Supplementing his work in conjure and hoodoo ConjureMan Ali also took up the practice of grimoire conjuring and developed a strong alliance with several chthonic spirits who along with his ancestors and his other personal spirits further cemented his image as a magician and mage associated with the grave and the power its inhabitants can hold.
A devotee of the mysteries of the Tarot, ConjureMan Ali took on his first reading client in his early teens and his first rootwork case shortly afterwards. His innate talent in matters of occultism and magick has made him somewhat of a prodigy even in his younger years that was recognized by those around him and resulted in people years older than him seeking out him as a teacher.
ConjureMan Ali is also an initiated Tata (high priest) in the African Traditional Religion of Quimbanda and the founder of The House of Quimbanda
ConjureMan Ali's approach to magick emphasizes the importance of classical occult education with a deep appreciation and respect for tradition which is applied to practical real-world experiences. He is a professional rootworker
, Tarot reader, geomancer, astrologer
