Venue: House of Yoga, Berkeley

Retreat 4th starts 6pm - 9pm; Saturday: 11 am-6 pm & Sunday: 1 pm - 3 pm

  • 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.

John Leads his talks like a ceremony in an interactive way with live drumming, singing and chanting. People will get an opportunity to learn the trance dance from South Africa and feel their energy move. This retreat is conducted as a ceremony, with chanting, dancing and meditating. A key intention behind John’s teaching is ‘uvula indlela’, opening the road through 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.

With ‘SHAKING MEDICINE,’ John will show you how to energise your spine to awaken your intuition. “In order to feel like the leopard, we need to move and dance like the leopard”.
