August 31, 2018 - Friday 7-8:30pm - Leopard Warrior Book Launch - with John Lockley

A talk by John Lockley on his latest book, Leopard Warrior: A Journey into the African Teachings of Ancestry, Instinct, and Dreams.

The Leopard is one of the most loved and revered animal totems in Africa. Leopard Warrior is a call for people to listen to their inner nature and face their own shadows. For many people it means facing their wounds, their vulnerability and therein lies the alchemy for our transformation.

Sangomas are traditional healers/ shamans from South Africa. They are called in a profound, ancient way via dreams and a mysterious illness to become mystic healers. John Lockley was born to become a Sangoma and recalls his odyssey from civil war in South Africa, Zen Buddhist meditation in South Korea to prophetic dreams and a ten-year apprenticeship under MaMngwevu, a traditional Xhosa woman from Nelson Mandela’s tribe. John talks about ‘humanity’ (Ubuntu) and his quest to find an end to war which began for him through listening to his dreams and accepting his ‘calling illness.' Leopard Warrior is a pioneering book helping to bridge South African traditional healing with mainstream Western Psychological thinking.
