John Lockley

South African Shaman
Canada

John Lockley is a fully initiated and ordained Sangoma (African Shaman) in two lineages from South Africa, the Xhosa and Swazi nations.

He was foreseen in a dream by his teacher, MaMngwevu, a senior Xhosa sangoma from the same tribe as Nelson Mandela, who invited him to be her apprentice. His Xhosa apprenticeship took 10 years. He was one of the first modern white men in recent times after Apartheid to be awarded the title of 'Ligqira Linkulu' by his Xhosa elders, meaning senior sangoma. His Xhosa, name given by his teacher, is 'Ucingolweendaba', meaning 'the messenger or bridge between cultures.'

For the last 15 years John has pioneered the bridge between modern western Psychology and traditional South African healing, facilitating 'Ubuntu' (Humanity) and Way of the Leopard retreats worldwide, and teaching people how they can reconnect to their Ancestors, Spirit, and the Earth. A passion of his is teaching people indigenous African medicine to help them reconnect to the earth. He facilitates this through his 'Dreams & Tracking' retreats in the Kalahari Desert every year, and 'Leopard Warrior trails' in South Africa.

John holds an honors degree in Clinical Psychology. He is also a Zen meditation practitioner with over 30 years of experience. He took Buddhist precepts with Zen Master Su Bong from South Korea in 1992. John offers private divination and healing sessions online. He is the author of the book 'Leopard Warrior', and audio teachings 'The Way of the Leopard', both published by Sounds True. He splits his time between South Africa, Botswana (Kalahari Desert), and Canada.
