Talk at InsightLA in Santa Monica, USA.

We are all born human, that is clear. However, in order to connect to our life essence, our true nature & true humanity, we have to make a decision, a decision to activate our ‘umbilini’ (kundalini) energy.

As a traditional healer from South Africa, and mindfulness practitioner in the zen tradition, John Lockley will speak about the third jewel in Buddhism, the ‘Sangha’. The sangha is much bigger than our friends and community, it reflects our humanity, the blood that binds us all and our collective ancestry. John will teach people how to ‘activate’ their ‘umbilini’ energy through shaking medicine, heart-beat meditation and ancestral veneration. This involves, cultivating deep love and gratitude for our ancestors and the sacrifices they made in order for us to be born human.

There will be an opportunity to buy John’s bestselling book, ‘Leopard Warrior’ & audio teachings ‘Way of the Leopard,’ both produced by Sounds True.

John will be running a one day workshop on Saturday 18th.
