John Lockley

John Lockley

John Lockley is one of the first modern white men in recent history to become a fully initiated Xhosa sangoma (African Shaman). His journey begins while working as a medic in the South African military towards the end of apartheid.

He trained extensively under Zen master Su Bong in South Korea before returning back to post-apartheid South Africa where he spent 10 years in apprenticeship with MaMngwevu, a medicine woman from the Xhosa tribe.

She named him Cingolweendaba, meaning the messenger or connector between people and cultures. John now splits his time teaching in South Africa, Ireland, Europe, and the US, facilitating 'Way of the Leopard' retreats.
