Leopard warrior reviews
John Lockley’s story is a remarkable and fascinating testimony to the ways in which the African ancestors pick and choose who they want to be the voice of their wisdom in the world. He is evidence that the ancestors have gone outside the tribal lineage to recruit ambassadors who can spread their wisdom and healing traditions. John’s story is a captivating testimony of a hero’s journey into uncharted territories. --Malidoma Somé, Dagara medicine man and elder, author, Of Water and the Spirit
"Leopard Warrior is a truly 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!" --Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Soul Retrieval and Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of a Shamanic Life
"In our time, many non-tribal Western people are now experiencing strong dreams in which they are invited to return to the shaman's ancient spiritual path of direct revelation. The South African-born John Lockley is one such person, and his fascinating story provides us with evidence of how the tribal ancestors of his land are recruiting ambassadors outside of their lineage who can spread their wisdom and healing traditions into our troubled world. Lockley is one of those who receives messages from the spirit worlds through dreams, visions, and divination so he can serve as a bridge and give these messages to us. In Leopard Warrior, John Lockley lifts the veil between ignorance and wisdom and reveals how those called to the shaman's path live in the liminal spaces between the shadowlands and the light. From my own experience, this is quite an adventure." --Hank Wesselman, PhD, anthropologist and author of The Re-Enchantment: The Shamanic Path to a Life of Wonder, the award-winning Awakening to the Spirit World (with Sandra Ingerman), The Bowl of Light: Ancestral Wisdom from a Hawaiian Shaman, and the critically acclaimed Spiritwalker trilogy
