LIVESTREAM - Traditional Shamanic Teachings from South Africa

Join John Lockley for this exclusive online event and group ritual


  • How to connect to your Ancestors and your humanity (Ubuntu)
  • Listen to your Heart-beat through trance dancing & Meditation
  • Work with your Dreams (night time journeys)

Welcome to this interactive ceremony to help you to connect to your Spirit and the Spirits of Nature.  A key question in South African shamanic practice is “what is the call of your Spirit?” The focus is on your soul not your personality or ego. When we can learn how to grow our soul, the immortal wilderness or wild space inside of us; then the outer wilderness will thrive, not die. In South African traditional culture, every human being is responsible for finding their calling to strengthen the circle of life and humanity (Ubuntu).

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.

Participants will learn how to connect to their Spirit and spirits through an intricate ceremony conducted in a circle around an earth altar or shrine.  The ceremony is an interactive, dynamic process involving Trance dancing or ‘shaking medicine’, learning how to connect to your Ancestors/ Nature spirits and Dream work.

“In order to feel like the leopard, we need to move and dance like the leopard”. With ‘SHAKING MEDICINE,’ John will show participants how to energise their spine to awaken their intuition. This is a gentle dance open to all fitness levels. It is a wonderful way to awaken the heart and connect to the heart-beat, the first step in learning indigenous tracking.

Important items to have for the webinar * Blanket for meditation • Dream journal to record dreams.

NB: This Ceremony requires all participants to engage with their own process 100%. It requires the hearts of warriors, fearless individuals who are not afraid to face their own Shadows.
