From the tribe that gave us Nelson Mandela & Desmond Tutu, we invite you to listen to this very special interview on Cafecito Break with Sangoma African Shaman, John Lockley.

Our topic: Traditional Shamanism For The Modern World.


John trained under difficult conditions in the townships of the Eastern Cape, serving a 10-year apprenticeship with his teacher Mum Ngwevu, a well-known Sangoma medicine woman. She had foreseen his arrival in a dream giving him the initiated name Ucingolwendaba, meaning messenger or connector between people and cultures. He is unique in being initiated in three timeless traditions: African Shamanism, Yoga and Zen Buddhism, and also holds an honours degree in Clinical Psychology.

Oct 2013 in NYC John will be hosted by The NY Shamanic Circle and ARE Edgar Cayce Center.  For details go to  nyshamaniccircle.org or  http://www.nyshamaniccircle.org/node/290

“My journey is about reconciliation and part of my job is to help heal the past. When people are more connected with their own spirits, there is less of a desire to destroy or put down another..." ~John Lockley
