Divinations & Healings in Boulder

Private Healings involving Divination OR a Plant Cleanse

John Lockley will be staying in Boulder and offering workshops and private sessions for those who are connecting with his work. He comes from S. Africa and is a traditional Sangoma (healer or shaman). His incredible journey of growing up during the apartheid and being called by his dreams to become a Sangoma is powerful and inspiring. His teachings and healing can be transformative who are serious about doing self-work and stepping into their gifts. John is an ancestral healer, diviner, and traditional healer from South Africa with over 20 years experience.

If you are interested in private sessions here is the list of what he is offering. 

Divination OR Plant Healing. 
Clients need to indicate which session they prefer. For plant healing John requires about 24 hours to mix the medicinal plants.

• 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 he 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.

Cost: $195
