John will be giving a book talk at the House of Yoga in Berkely, Michigan; a well known Yoga Centre in the heart of the Midwest.

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.

"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

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.
