Join John Lockley, renowned sangoma/South African Shaman, for a powerful two-day ceremony which will include dream & ancestral teachings, dance, healing, ritual, & plant medicine (e.g. Pine & Sage).
Malidoma Somé, Sandra Ingerman, & Jack Kornfield have highly praised his work. Lockley is a fully recognized & initiated traditional sangoma/shaman in the Xhosa tribe of South Africa – the same tribe as Nelson Mandala and Desmond Tutu. He uniquely bridges African spirituality with Zen and Western Psychology. Leopard Warrior, his bestselling new book, is published by Sounds True.
This two day ceremony is based on John Lockley’s bestselling debut book, Leopard Warrior: A Journey into the African Teachings of Ancestry, Instinct & Dreams. It will be a joyful exploration of Ubuntu (Humanity) and what it means to be fully human, alive and connected to the natural world. John will teach participants how to connect to their life purpose through the ancient South African traditional teachings of Ubuntu. These teachings speak about the interconnectedness of all life. The workshop will be an exploration of ancestors, dreams and the practice of trance dancing. In this two day ceremony, John will use guided meditation, prayer, song, dance, drumming, plant medicine (e.g. Pine, White Sage, Rosemary), and intention to help the participants to connect with their inner voice, sharing teachings on “Connecting with our Ancestral Lines” and “Remembering our Dreams”. He will also share experiences from working in the African Bush, how to track animals, helping participants to connect with their heartbeat, re-wilding them and strengthening their ability to move towards their life calling, their destiny. John teaches about Ubuntu – Humanity – Connecting people to their Ancestors, their own indigenous roots, re-wilding people, connecting them to their dreams and their soul. John is a dreamer, a healer and a divinator who works with Sacred Ceremony, meditation, song, dance and cleansing herbs to help people to connect more fully to themselves, to find their Life Path, their Soul Calling.
You will learn how to connect to your ancestors in a timeless African way, and how to dance like the Leopard and let your spirit flow. To understand your life purpose it is important to connect to your bones, the roots of your being. Would you like to feel more alive and connected with your life purpose? Then join us for this remarkable day of meditation, dance and mystical teachings.
