More about John
John’s story is a remarkable testament to the human spirit to survive adversity and trust in one’s dreams. His story started in Dublin in the 1950’s with is Mother, Anastasia Kelly’s vision of African elephants whilst walking the Dun Laoghaire peer. For the last 20 years he has worked alongside some of South Africa’s top diviners, healers and herbalists. Now over 60 years later he has returned bearing gifts of African indigenous technology in the form of storytelling, ancestral dreaming, divination, plant healing, trance dancing and shaking medicine, to name but a few. John is a specialist with dreams and clients are welcome to discuss theirs with him.
A Review for ‘Leopard Warrior’:
“Leopard Warrior is truly a remarkable account of the initiation of a white male in South Africa into becoming a sangoma. This is quite a sign to be entrusted with these deep ancestral mysteries. John Lockley shares a wealth of stories that will bring tears to your eyes as well as inspire you to want to learn more. The exercises he provides are simple yet transformative. This book is brilliant!”
