John Lockley is an ancestrally trained and initiated Xhosa Sangoma – a traditional South African Shaman.
According to John’s Xhosa elders in the Eastern Cape, John Lockley is one of the first white men, in recent history, to become a fully initiated Sangoma in the Xhosa lineage of South Africa – the tribe that gave us Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu.
A Sangoma receives guidance (through dreams and trance) from ancestors in the spirit world, in order to heal and guide the community. Sangomas are South African Shamans, meaning seers, dreamers or prophets – the traditional healers of Africa.
John was recently interviewed by Earth Medicine Alliance in San Francisco. Please click here to watch the interview.
