WITH ANCESTORS, NATURE AND SPIRIT

John Lockley is a traditionally trained Sangoma (African Shaman) from the Xhosa nation, the same tribe as Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu.

He will be offering shamanic teachings from South Africa; focusing on ancestors, Ubuntu (humanity) and dreams.

A key question is ‘what does it mean to be a human being?’ And ‘How can we realise our humanity?’ In Africa to connect with spirit means to dance and sing. John leads his talks like a ceremony, with storytelling, dancing and chanting in the Xhosa language.

Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn about one of the oldest shamanic cultures in the world, the sangoma medicine people from South Africa.

John Lockley is one of the first modern white men in recent history to become a fully initiated Xhosa sangoma (African Shaman). His journey begins while working as a medic in the South African military towards the end of apartheid. He trained extensively under Zen master Su Bong in South Korea before returning back to post-apartheid South Africa where he spent 10 years in apprenticeship with MaMngwevu, a medicine woman from the Xhosa tribe. She named him Cingolweendaba, meaning the messenger or connector between people and cultures. John now splits his time teaching in South Africa, Ireland, Europe, and the US, facilitating 'Way of the Leopard' retreats.
