Meet John Lockley, a traditional African healer or yogi from Nelson Mandela's tribe the Xhosa nation. John's bestselling book 'Leopard Warrior' Warrior’ is a call for people to listen to their inner nature and face their own shadows. For many people it means facing their wounds, their vulnerability and therein lies the alchemy for our transformation.

Sangomas are traditional healers/ shamans from South Africa. They are called in a profound, ancient way via dreams and a mysterious illness to become mystic healers.

John was born to become a Sangoma and recalls his odyssey from civil war in South Africa, Zen Buddhist meditation in South Korea to prophetic dreams and a ten-year apprenticeship under MaMngwevu, a traditional Xhosa woman from Nelson Mandela’s tribe.

This evening talk is a prelude to John's weekend retreat/ceremony 'The Way of the Leopard-Warrior'; transformation through listening to the wind of our soul.  Pioneering wilderness work from the Heart of South Africa. 

Exchange: $40 + special weekend workshop offer.
