Trance Dance the African Way with John Lockley

Participants will learn the Ancient Art of the South African trance dance. The trance dance is one of the main methods in Southern Africa for healers to connect to the divine and spirit worlds.

The Sangoma rhythm is a particular heart-beat rhythm and the ingomas or songs are chants, sung to invoke the ancestors and healing spirits. It is well known that the sound of the Sangoma drum is enough to help connect people to their spirits and to dream in a mystical way.

John will teach participants to ‘shake their bones’, awaken their intuition and open their hearts. It is a powerful way to connect to one another, our Ancestors, the world around us and our Dreams.

La transe danse avec John Lockley

Les participants apprendront l'art de la danse de transe sud-africaine. La transe danse est l’une des méthodes principales en Afrique du Sud pour permettre aux guérisseurs de se connecter aux mondes divin et spirituel.

Le rythme du Sangoma est un rythme du battement du coeur et les ingomas ou chansons, sont des chants, chantés pour invoquer les ancêtres et des esprits guérisseurs. Il est bien connu que le son du tambour Sangoma suffit à connecter les gens à leur esprit et à leur permettre de rêver de façon mystique.

John apprendra aux participants à "se secouer les os", à éveiller leur intuition et à ouvrir leur cœur. C'est un moyen puissant de se connecter les uns aux autres, à nos ancêtres, au monde qui nous entoure et à nos rêves.

The Way of the Leopard

African Shamanic Teachings on Ancestry, Instinct & Dreams

The Leopard is revered in Southern Africa as a totem of intuitive intelligence, with the ability to move between worlds, the world of spirit and nature. It is a noble creature with a silent promise of what is possible if we learn to listen with the entirety of our being.

He will also share experiences from working in the African Bush. This ceremony will help participants to connect with their heartbeat, re-wild them and strengthen 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 diviner 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.

John Lockley Biography

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.

Monthly Webinar - Honouring the Goddess
Jul
30
2:00 PM14:00

Monthly Webinar - Honouring the Goddess

This month’s Webinar theme will be ‘Honouring the Goddess’, noticing the all pervading feminine presence in nature as reflected in our Dreams. Areas to be discussed will be how we can honour the feminine and goddess in our lives to foster both personal and ecological harmony.

In traditional shamanic cultures like in Africa and South America the earth is seeing as a living feminine being. In ancient Greek mythology the earth is personified as Gaia, the Mother earth goddess. In the sangoma culture in South Africa medicine people are often women. Some sacred medicines like Ayahuasca in South America are imbued with goddess energy giving people an opportunity to ‘touch the divine’.

If we can picture sacred medicine in the world as a grandmother are we inspired to take from her or give? These will be some of the areas to be discussed.

John will give a 20 min talk to introduce this month’s theme. People can then ask questions. We will then carry on with our ‘Dream circle’ where people will have an opportunity to share their dreams with the group. A recording will be sent to each participant, minus the ‘dream sharing’ to maintain confidentiality.

CHAMANISME ET ENSEIGNEMENTS DE SAGESSE AFRICAINE SUR LES ANCÊTRES, L'INSTINCT ET LES RÊVES

Avec John Lockley, auteur, enseignant et homme-médecine

* Présenté en anglais

Le Léopard est vénéré en Afrique du Sud comme un totem d'intelligence intuitive, capable de se déplacer entre les mondes, le monde de l'esprit et la nature. C’est une animal noble qui promet en silence ce qui est possible si nous apprenons à écouter avec l’ensemble de notre être.

Au cours de cette cérémonie de deux jours, John utilisera la méditation guidée, la prière, le chant, la danse, le tambour, la médecine des plantes (ex. : pin, sauge, romarin) et l’intention afin d’aider les participants à se connecter avec leur voix intérieure, en partageant des enseignements sur nos lignées ancestrales et comment se souvenir de nos rêves. Il partagera également ses expériences de travail dans le Bushveld et comment suivre les animaux. Il aidera les participants à communiquer avec leurs battements de cœur et à renforcir leur capacité à s'orienter vers leur vocation, leur destin.

John enseigne à propos d'Ubuntu - Humanité – à relier les gens à leurs ancêtres, à leurs propres racines, à leurs rêves et à leur âme. John est un rêveur, un guérisseur et un divinateur qui travaille avec la Cérémonie sacrée, la méditation, le chant, la danse et le nettoyage avec les herbes pour aider les gens à se connecter plus pleinement à eux-mêmes, à trouver leur chemin de vie, leur appel d’âme.

*********

John est l'un des premiers hommes blancs, dans l'histoire récente, à devenir un Sangoma initié dans la lignée Xhosa de l'Afrique du Sud. Il est né, en 1971, durant l’apartheid divisant l’Afrique du Sud, avec la marque du Sangoma sur son visage - une bande de peau de naissance blanche autour des yeux. À 18 ans, alors qu’il servait dans l'armée sud-africaine en tant que médecin (pendant la guerre avec l'Angola dans les années 1980) John reçu un puissant rêve prophétique qui l’invitait à s'entraîner en tant que Sangoma Xhosa. Il commença à souffrir de la Thwasa, traditionnellement associée à une période d’apprentissage d'un enseignant chamanique. En raison des restrictions de l'apartheid (qui a pris fin en 1994), il faudrait sept ans à John pour trouver un enseignant Xhosa. Au début de sa vocation, il suivi une formation d'étudiant zen sous la direction de Su Bong, maître zen de renom et termina un Kyol Che (intensif de méditation) de trois mois dans un monastère bouddhiste en Corée du Sud. Il a ensuite été invité par le Grand Maître Dae Soen Sa Nim à rejoindre sa « délégation de moines », mais la force de son appel Sangoma le ramena en Afrique du Sud.

Finalement, juste après l'apartheid, John rencontra Mum Ngwevu, une femme-médecine Xhosa Sangoma bien connue, dans l'un des townships les plus pauvres d'Afrique du Sud. Elle avait prévu son arrivée dans un rêve et commença son apprentissage de 10 ans, en lui donnant le nom initié Ucingolwendaba, ce qui signifie messager ou connecteur entre les gens et les cultures. John partage maintenant son temps entre l'Afrique du Sud, l'Europe et l’Amérique du Nord.

********
John est l'un des premiers hommes blancs, dans l'histoire récente, à devenir un sangoma initié dans la lignée Xhosa de l'Afrique du Sud. Il est né, en 1971, durant l’apartheid divisant l’Afrique du Sud, avec la marque du sangoma sur son visage - une bande de peau de naissance blanche autour des yeux. À 18 ans, alors qu’il servait dans l'armée sud-africaine en tant que médecin (pendant la guerre avec l'Angola dans les années 1980) John reçu un puissant rêve prophétique qui l’invitait à s'entraîner en tant que sangoma Xhosa. Il commença à souffrir de la Thwasa, traditionnellement associée à une période d’apprentissage d'un enseignant chamanique. En raison des restrictions de l'apartheid (qui a pris fin en 1994), il faudrait sept ans à John pour trouver un enseignant Xhosa. Au début de sa vocation, il suivi une formation d'étudiant zen sous la direction de Su Bong, maître zen de renom et termina un Kyol Che (intensif de méditation) de trois mois dans un monastère bouddhiste en Corée du Sud. Il a ensuite été invité par le Grand Maître Dae Soen Sa Nim à rejoindre sa « délégation de moines », mais la force de son appel sangoma le ramena en Afrique du Sud.

Finalement, juste après l'apartheid, John rencontra Mum Ngwevu, une femme-médecine Xhosa sangoma bien connue, dans l'un des townships les plus pauvres d'Afrique du Sud. Elle avait prévu son arrivée dans un rêve et commença son apprentissage de 10 ans, en lui donnant le nom initié Ucingolwendaba, ce qui signifie messager ou connecteur entre les gens et les cultures. John partage maintenant son temps entre l'Afrique du Sud, l'Europe et l’Amérique du Nord.

Monthly Webinar Series - Befriending your Shadow...

This month’s Webinar theme will be ‘Making peace with our Shadow’ & overcoming Obstacles to Spiritual practice. John will give a 20 min talk around this area. People can then ask questions.

Have you ever blamed someone else for your problems, a teacher, friend or lover? Ever felt embarrassed or ashamed for your faults and felt the need to be perfect?
Our Shadows have the potential to transform us and our world. There is an old saying in Buddhism ‘No Mud no Lotus !’ The symbol of spirituality is depicted as the Lotus flower. The lotus flower feeds off the mud, and when it is ready it blossoms. The teaching is simple: All we need to do is notice our shadow and not act them out, then they have the power to transform us.

After our the discussion on the Shadow we will carry on with our ‘Dream circle’ where people will have an opportunity to share their dreams with the group.

If you can’t make the webinar don’t worry, once you have signed up you will receive a recording of the session.

African Shamanic Plant Healing Ceremony in London
Jun
1
to Jun 2

African Shamanic Plant Healing Ceremony in London

  • Barnes Green Social Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
036.JPG

John will be facilitating a plant healing ceremony in London over 2 days. The focus is to help people connect more deeply with their spirit and dreams.

Many people in the West associate the term “plant medicine” with hallucinogenic experiences. But this is just one small area of plant medicine. In many Shamanic cultures the Shaman connects and works with the spirit of the plant in order to restore balance and health. In this workshop, Senior Sangoma John Lockley will teach how dreams can help you to connect with your soul and the plant & animal worlds. He will discuss how plants are used in South Africa to deepen one’s connection to the ‘dreamtime’, ancestral world and ultimately help people to connect with their life path. They do this through cleansing and protecting the individual and aligning them with the spirit of nature.

Participants will be lead through a gentle process in preparation for the plant ceremony. The ceremony will start with an ancestral invocation where each person will be given an opportunity to call on their ancestors. This will be followed by a combination of heart beat meditation (to encourage stillness) and shaking medicine (dynamic movement) to raise the umbilini (kundalini) or spinal energy. Participants will experience the plant ceremony as an external cleanse with their feet immersed in the plant mixture. Plant spirits love rhythm and song. To enhance this experience and facilitate deeper healing John will chant ‘ingomas’ or sacred sangoma songs assisted by the African drum. He will lead the participants on a ‘healing journey’ to release negativity and fear and be open to more abundance and joy in their lives.

On the second day John will talk in more detail about different types of dreams, in particular prophetic or ‘teaching dreams’.

For more information please see John’s best selling book, ‘Leopard Warrior’ & audio teachings ‘Way of the Leopard’. These are available in most book stores or online via Amazon. This will form valuable background info to John’s work.

Please bring:

- Pen and notebook
- Towel
- A plastic tub that is large enough for both feet to fit into. Preferably square. It is sold in most supermarket stores as washing basins.

Coffee, Tea and biscuits will be provided.

Timings:

Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

The Way of the Leopard - African Shamanic Teachings on Ancestry, Instinct & Dreams

John Lockley will be leading a one day ceremony (at the London College of Psychic Studies), focusing on helping people to connect to their natural wisdom, their Ubuntu (humanity).

He facilitates in a traditional South African way using drumming, singing and storytelling to activate peoples’ hearts and awaken their spirits.

Ubuntu is seen as a circle, with each person being the centre of their circle. People will sit in a circle around an earth altar, constructed in a traditional African shamanic way to help people connect with their ancestors, the root of their being. To connect to the larger circle, we are called to listen deeply and awaken our bones and blood.

Participants will be taught an ancestral healing practice. The practice starts with our hearts, our inner pulse and continues into our dreams.

The natural world is threatened and we as humans are called to wake up and become guardians of the world. How can we do this?

By becoming wild and reconnecting with our instinctual selves. In South Africa they do this through an intricate mix of prayer, dancing, ancestral work and dreaming.

This workshop will be conducted as a ceremony involving a mixture of stillness, movement, and a discussion on ancestors and dreams.

The stillness practice will involve heart-beat meditation where participants will be guided to connect with their pulse, their life force. The movement practice is the trance dance or xhentsa, also known as shaking medicine. It is a simple and easy practice and doesn’t require loads of fitness and stamina. The dancing and meditation will help to facilitate deeper relaxation, dream recall and ancestral connection.

The Leopard is revered in Southern Africa as a totem of intuitive intelligence, with the ability to move between worlds, the world of spirit and nature. It is a noble creature with a silent promise of what is possible if we learn to listen with the entirety of our being.

The Way of the Leopard Retreat,

Connect with your spirit(s), connect with Nature

Traditional Shamanic teachings from South Africa

039.JPG

Learn how to connect to your 7 senses, and move through the natural world like a Leopard.

 Wednesday 15th Public talk 7-9pm ‘Way of the Leopard’ - connect with your intuition, connect with Nature.

  • John’s talk and retreat will be based on his best-selling book ‘Leopard Warrior’ and audio teachings ‘Way of the Leopard’, both published by Sounds True and available for purchase & signing on the night, and during the retreat.

The Leopard is one of the most revered totem animals in Southern Africa. The reason is because it represents intuitive intelligence and nobility of spirit. The Leopard represents harmony between the spirit and mundane worlds, always dancing between the twilight worlds of light and dark. It is a guide to African medicine people and others who want to listen and wake up.

Retreat from Thursday 16th 7pm to Sunday 19th 4pm

This retreat will be conducted as a ceremony, with chanting, dancing and meditating.  A key intention behind John’s teaching is ‘uvula indlela’, opening the road i.e. teaching people how to find their purpose or calling in life through listening to their hearts, dreams and intuition.

In order to listen effectively we need to stimulate our nervous system and WAKE UP. The retreat will involve trance dancing or ‘shaking medicine’ where John will show people how to energise their spines to awaken their intuition. “In order to feel like the leopard, we need to move and dance like the leopard”.

Learn the three jewels of Indigenous medicine to connect with your humanity (Ubuntu)

·       Listening to our Heart.

·       Connecting with our Bones (Ancestors)

·       Working with our Dreams (night time journeys)

In South African traditional culture, it is each person’s responsibility to connect to their ‘Ubuntu’ (humanity), and in so doing they realise their unique gifts and become effective members of their community.  ‘Ubuntu’ speaks about US, SHARING, TOGETHERNESS. It is literally translated as, “I am what I am because of who we all are”.

·       The ability to feel and listen to our Hearts will be honed through the practice of Heart-Beat meditation and trance dancing.

·       Connecting with Ancestors – John will speak about the importance of honouring our forebears because they have given us the gift of life. A simple ceremony will be conducted to improve our connection to our ancestors.

·       Dreams are the gateway to the spirit world. John will speak about the three levels of dreaming and some simple techniques to harness the power of our dreams.

- Plant Medicine Ceremony - A key part of the retreat is a traditional South African plant medicine ceremony. This is done to help cleanse people so that they can receive insightful dreams. The plants used are ‘non-hallucinogenic’. Participants will place their feet in a bowl of water & herbs.

Important items to bring on retreat

  • A plastic foot basin, preferably square with enough room to fit both feet in.

  • Blanket for meditation

  • Dream journal to record dreams

This Ceremony requires all participants to engage with their own process 100%. It requires the hearts of warriors, fearless individuals who are not afraid to face their own Shadows.

The Way Of Ubuntu: Exploring traditional South African healing
Feb
6
to Feb 8

The Way Of Ubuntu: Exploring traditional South African healing

What is Ubuntu? A unique Southern African philosophy on Humanity. It speaks about a human circle or radical interconnection.

It has been coined by Nelson Mandela & Archbishop Desmond Tutu as ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’.

John will lead participants in a traditional South African healing ceremony over three days during which they will learn to connect to their Ancestors (bones), Dreams, 'Umoya' (spirit) and one another. 'Ubuntu' means 'I am what I am because of who we all are'. It is a circle of interlinking relationships connecting the seen and unseen worlds. The ceremony will involve a plant cleanse, using medicinal plants to cleanse the spirit and open the heart. John will lead an in-depth discussion on 'African cosmology' and the understanding of ancestors, plant medicine and dreaming to create 'Ubuntu'. Retreatants will learn one of the most ancient and misunderstood cultures in South Africa today - traditional healing from a sangoma perspective. 'Ubuntu' in essence represents harmony and is similar to the Zen circle. Linking the past and present, it is an evolving state of co-operation and compassion whereby every human being is linked to their own families and communities as well as the unseen world of ancestors. Please bring a plastic basin which will be used for medicinal foot healing, a dream journal, pen and paper to take notes, a meditation blanket and an open mind. This retreat is suitable for all therapists, healers and those with a desire to heal South Africa.

John will be available after the retreat to offer private ‘bone divinations’ or sangoma consultations. To make an appointment please email John directly via info@johnlockley.com.

EXCHANGE: 3 days' accommodation + R350 surcharge

John will be launching his new book at the Center for Spiritual Living in Santa Fe, NM. He will also be hosting a retreat at the Center, see bottom of description for details.

"A beautiful invitation to open your eyes and heart to whole new worlds of shamanic healing and spirit. A reminder to trust your dreams and inspiration, and to love, dance and awaken to mystery."

Jack Kornfield, Author of A Path With Heart

"Leopard Warrior is truly a remarkable account of the initiation of a white male in South Africa into becoming a Sangoma. This is quite a sign to be entrusted with these deep ancestral mysteries. John Lockley shares a wealth of stories that will bring tears to your eyes as well as inspire you to want to learn more. The exercises he provides are simple yet transformative. This book is brilliant!"

- Sandra Ingerman, MA author of Soul Retrieval and Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life

Details
The Leopard is one of the most loved and revered animal totems in Africa. ‘Leopard 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. John talks about ‘humanity’ (Ubuntu) and his quest to find an end to war which began for him through listening to his dreams and accepting his ‘calling illness’.

Leopard Warrior is a pioneering book bridging South African traditional spirituality and modern Western Psychology.

Divination: 'Throwing the bones'
As a traditional sangoma John is a trained 'diviner' and he receives messages from the ancestral world through dreams, trance dancing and 'throwing the bones'. 

Each session is a ceremony whereby John chants in isiXhosa and creates a circle with tobacco. He chants the names of the client's ancestors into the circle. As the bones fall they create a constellation, representing the client's life. John speaks about the constellation, indicating the client's strengths and challenges. In keeping with the sangoma way, John often gives clients home-work involving private ceremonies or meditations.

NB: These are not fortune telling sessions, but rather sessions to help people discover their gifts, and overcome their challenges. The power of these sessions is dependent on the client’s intention to work on themselves. John is simply a guide. The stronger the client's intention to realise their destiny or life path, the more energy is given to 'the bones'.

Suitable for:
People searching for more direction in their lives, and a way to connect to their bones (ancestors).

Plant Healing
Clients place their feet in a mixture of plant medicine and warm water. They soak their feet for about 20 minutes. During this time John chants in isiXhosa, rattles and encourages the client to listen to their heart beat. Heat in the form of either incense or moxa sticks is applied to the soles of the feet to aid the flow of energy.
Plant healing occurs over three days. The first occurs with John, then the plant mixture is given to the client and John demonstrates how to use the simple mixture for days 2 & 3.

Suitable for:
People who are suffering from fatigue; trauma, emotional or physical.
These plant cleanses are also very helpful to aid in Dream recall.
* This is one of the primary techniques used by traditional healers throughout Southern Africa to cleanse the spirit and help people connect to their ancestors and dreams.

Time: Each Divination ceremony lasts approximately one hour

Divination Cost: $195
Plant Healing Cost: $250

Leopard Warrior Book Launch in Vancouver, BC

John will be launching his book in Vancouver at the Banyen Books and Sound, one of the leading resource centres on the West Coast of America for all things related to spirituality and healing sound.

BK05051-Leopard-Warrior-Published-Cover.jpg

"A beautiful invitation to open your eyes and heart to whole new worlds of shamanic healing and spirit. A reminder to trust your dreams and inspiration, and to love, dance and awaken to mystery."

Jack Kornfield,  Author of A Path With Heart

"Leopard Warrior is truly a remarkable account of the initiation of a white male in South Africa into becoming a Sangoma. This is quite a sign to be entrusted with these deep ancestral mysteries. John Lockley shares a wealth of stories that will bring tears to your eyes as well as inspire you to want to learn more. The exercises he provides are simple yet transformative. This book is brilliant!"

Sandra Ingerman, MA author of Soul Retrieval and Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life

Details

The Leopard is one of the most loved and revered animal totems in Africa. ‘Leopard 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. John talks about ‘humanity’ (Ubuntu) and his quest to find an end to war which began for him through listening to his dreams and accepting his ‘calling illness’.

Leopard Warrior is a pioneering book bridging South African traditional spirituality and modern Western Psychology.

John will be giving a one day 'Way of the Leopard Warrior' workshop on Saturday at East West Book store, followed by private healing/ Divination sessions on Monday 3rd Sep.

Ubuntu, Dreams and Inner Visions in Montreal, Canada

John Lockley is one of the first white men in recent history to be initiated a senior Sangoma (Shaman) in the Xhosa tradition in South Africa, the tribe of Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. His apprenticeship in post-Apartheid South Africa took him 10 gruelling years to complete, from 1997 to 2007. 

This evening will provide a rare glimpse into the unknown world of South-African Mysticism....

Ubuntu,dreams & inner visions

Ubuntu teachings describe a system of growing our souls, allowing us to emancipate ourselves from our individual egos, and expand outwards to the larger community. 

Ubuntu means humanity and acting in a way that is considerate, kind, and which involves a deep listening to ourselves and others. 

'I am who I am because of who we all are'

There exists a common bond between us all and it is through this bond, through the quality of our interactions with our fellow human beings, that we discover our own human qualities. 

We affirm our humanity when we acknowledge that of others.

John Lockley will also talk about the importance of dreaming.

Dreams are a gateway to our immortality and help us navigate the world of the living.

As we become more conscious of our dreams, we become more conscious of our waking lives, of our inner landscape. We are also preparing ourselves spiritually for our final sleep, when we die and leave our bodies.

John will expand on the three levels of dreaming and will teach us how to distinguish between the mundane dreams of everyday life, dreams engaging our psychological or emotional selves and finally prophetic dreams.

This conference will be a prelude to the 2 day Ancestral healing ceremony entitled: The Way of the Leopard

Plant Healing Ceremony & Fire Circle in Quebec

Traditional medicine cultures such as the Xhosa use plant medicine in a variety of ways to bring about a state of harmony in body, mind and spirit. The plants are used to cleanse the body and spirit of impurities and thereby remove any obstacles or blocks surrounding the person.

The main job of a Sangoma or traditional shaman is to help a client dream and realise their potential in this life. Plants are powerful allies along the healing journey. John uses a variety of plants in workshops to help facilitate deep and profound spiritual healing.

This plant healing ceremony should prove to be a unique, very personal and deeply internal experience for all participants.

Participants will be guided through an energetic shaking dance practice to stimulate their ‘Umbilini’ (Kundalini) energy to heighten the effects of the plant ceremony. John will chant in the Xhosa language from South Africa to help everyone connect to the ‘dream/ancestral space.’ A guided heart-beat meditation will then follow as a means to help strengthen the connection to the soul, otherwise known as the wind, the Umoya in the Sangoma lineage.

A plant medicine mixture will be then administered externally. Participants will be encouraged to place their feet (or hands) in a bowl of warm water mixed with the plant medicine. While soaking in the medicine in this way, John will pray, use instruments, and sing to encourage the spirits of the plants as they interact with the spirits of the participants. This is often a profound and moving experience for those involved. It is a direct healing encounter with a high potency.

John frequently uses the local plants in the vicinity of his workshops. He also tends to mix in some South African plants to increase their efficacy, which he travels with. Please note: All plants used are non-hallucinogenic.

All participants will subsequently be invited outside for a sacred fire ceremony, where John will be giving a talk entitled:

Alchemy & the Path of the Wounded Healer; learning to transform our wounds to heal our world.

Exchange: $101
