In 1990, during the beginning of the end of apartheid, a young white medic in the South African army named John Lockley had a powerful dream. This dream, which he describes as a "calling," began his extraordinary odyssey beyond the barriers of race, culture, and belief into the world of the shaman.

Leopard Warrior shares the remarkable story of how John Lockley became one of the first modern white men in recent history to become a fully initiated sangoma - traditional priest and healer - in the Xhosa lineage of South Africa, the tribe of Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. Here he invites you to discover:

  • Powerful insights into the spiritual tradition of the Xhosa lineage of South Africa - the tribe of Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu
  • Ubuntu - a core concept for recognizing and embracing our deep interconnection with all living things
  • Ancestor medicine - how we can learn to honor the blood in our veins, the heritage of our soul, and our shared humanity
  • Recovering our forgotten knowledge about the wisdom of our dreams, the spirits of plants and animals, and the power of the unseen world

With Leopard Warrior, he brings us an inspiring call to action - showing how we can bridge the barriers that divide us, embrace the gifts of our ancestors, and reclaim our rightful place as compassionate caretakers of our world.
