Why Attend “Heal Your Ancestral Roots & Strengthen Your Life Force”
A primary source of illness in the Western hemisphere is alienation from spirit — a sense of feeling alone in the world.
At the root of this illness is forgetting who we are and experiencing complete disconnection from the tree of life — our ancestors from within our own lineages and through our cultural and spiritual roots.
For many of us, ancestral shame and guilt, from the experience of oppression, slavery, or historical colonization, has resulted in low spiritual self-esteem, making it difficult to access our spiritual strength. Like a tree, we are cut off from our roots and suffer from a lack of groundedness and connection with ourselves, the Earth, and our deep ancestral origins.
Strengthening your “roots” through your ancestors can lead to deep healing that travels through familial and cultural bloodlines — and across time and space.
World-renowned sangoma (South African shaman) and healer John Lockley stresses that we need to reclaim our “spiritual roots” — the state in which we fully embrace our own unique heritage so we can optimize our health, awareness, and capacity to be good stewards of the Earth.
Class Topics for “Heal Your Ancestral Roots & Strengthen Your Life Force”
During this free online spiritual healing workshop, John will share the powerful spirit of ubuntu — the circle of humanity — in which you can return as a child of nature at one with all of existence. By returning to the innocence of the earth, you will strengthen the roots that link you to all of humanity.
In this hour-long free spiritual event, you’ll:
- Be guided to open your heart, unlock your body, and free your spirit through a journey of “dancing the body divine” accompanied by live African drumming
- Explore the differences between relying on the intellect and connecting with the feeling of embodiment and intuitive nature — and how this essential wisdom can help you navigate your life
- Reconnect with your “blood and bones” as you awaken your nervous system
- Learn about Thobela (humility) as you connect with all of life and the outside world with your belly touching the earth
- Learn practices to reconnect with your inner child, your innocence, and your natural born rhythm — as you connect with the wind inside of you and surrender to the spirit of play
John will also share how healing the bloodlines of your ancestral roots revitalizes your life energy and opens the pathway to fully embracing your soul purpose.
As you learn to trust yourself and your lineages more fully, you can surrender to the path of your destiny.
About Your Teacher – John Lockley
John Lockley is one of the first white men in recent history to become a fully initiated sangoma (traditional African shaman) in the Xhosa lineage of South Africa. He was born in 1971 into a divided apartheid South Africa, with the mark of the sangoma on his face — a band of white birth skin around the eyes.
At 18, John was serving in the South African army as a medic when he had a strong, prophetic dream calling him to train as a Xhosa sangoma. He immediately began to suffer from the thwasa, a severe period of ill health that is inherent in all ancient shamanic cultures and which can only be cured through apprenticeship to a shamanic teacher.
Because of the restrictions of apartheid (which ended in 1994), it would take John seven years to find a Xhosa teacher. During the early days of his calling he trained as a Zen student under renowned Zen Master Su Bong, completing an intensive 3-month Kyol Che in a Buddhist monastery in South Korea. He was then invited by Zen Master Dae Soen Sa Nim to join his “monk army,” but the strength of his sangoma calling drew him back to South Africa.
Eventually, post-apartheid, John met MaMngwevu, a well-known Xhosa sangoma medicine woman, in one of the poorest townships in South Africa. She had foreseen his arrival in a dream and began his 10-year apprenticeship, giving him the initiated name Cingolweendaba, meaning messenger or connector between people and cultures.
