Welcome to the wisdom teachings from Southern Africa. Meet John Lockley, a 20 year sangoma (traditional South African Shaman) veteran apprenticed in two lineages, the Xhosa & Swazi nations. John is one of the first white men, in recent history, to become a fully initiated sangoma in the Xhosa lineage of South Africa.

Join us for an evening of African dancing, chanting, storytelling & meditation delving further into John's bestselling book, ‘Leopard Warrior’: A Journey into African Teachings of Ancestry, Instinct, and Dreams.

About John Lockley

John was born to become a sangoma with his mother’s visions of Africa. His teachings speak of our shared ‘Ubuntu’ (humanity) and how to put an end to war. As an army medic at the height of South Africa’s civil war ie, Apartheid; he speaks with profound passion & understanding. “To end war we need to shine a light on our own inner shadow selves, then we have an opportunity to truly blossom like the lotus flower”.

John’s book will be available for purchase. John will also be leading a one day workshop on Sat 27th July in London.

"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!"
