John Lockley, Xhosa Sangoma/Shaman leads ceremonies in his native South African, Xhosa tradition, worldwide. He is unique in being initiated in three timeless traditions: African Shamanism as a Xhosa Sangoma, Yoga and Zen Buddhism, and he also holds an honors degree in Clinical Psychology. John is reputed to be one of the first white men in recent history to become a fully initiated Shaman (or Sangoma) in the Xhosa lineage of South Africa – the tribe that gave us Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu.
