Publisher's Summary

Shake your bones, listen to your dreams, and feel the earth beneath your feet

Inside you is a deep capacity for connection to nature, your ancestors, and the limitless wisdom and creativity you touch every night in your dreams. Yet in this modern age filled with distraction and anxiety, how do you restore your connection to these primal resources for living with power and purpose? "We are all bound together by a symphony of blood and bone", teaches John Lockley, one of the few white men in recent history to become a fully initiated sangoma - traditional priest and healer - in the Xhosa lineage of South Africa. With The Way of the Leopard, he brings you a treasury of practices informed by this powerful tradition to help you embrace your true gifts and become a healing presence in the world.

An audio training course inspired by African Shamanic wisdom

The core spiritual teachings John teaches are all created to help you awaken to your own Ubuntu, or shared humanity. In these sessions, you'll learn to activate the untapped power of your physical senses and intuition; discover how to honor your ancestors and draw upon their guidance; engage with your dreams as a spiritual practice; connect to nature through animal and plant medicine; and dance and shake your way to greater vitality, health, and aliveness.

At the beginning of his sangoma apprenticeship, John Lockley's teacher MaMngwevu gave him the name Cingolweendaba, which means "messenger", reflecting his calling to spread the essential values and principles of South African mysticism to a world in need of healing. "It doesn't matter what color your skin is or what culture you're from", John teaches. "If you are a human being with red blood, you can walk like the leopard and connect with the earth like the elephant." Join this remarkable teacher on The Way of the Leopard for a joyful and invigorating course to help you create a life rich in meaning and supported by spirit.

Kind and Inspiring

I really enjoyed this book and John's teaching. His lessons are simple but meaningful. John has a very nice, soothing voice and he also adds some laughter. I also enjoyed the African language, chants and prayers and will enjoy dreaming from a new perspective and grunt like a leopard whilst I dance! Thanks John! I really appreciate the lessons and just about to start the book again.

for a drummer is a dreamer

I attended one of John's workshops in June 2018 and this audiobook is a great reminder of the teachings. The book is seperated in parts that cover various aspects of how to lead the way of the leopard from dancing to plant medecine to dreaming... each part contains a mix of meditations, teachings, prayers and chats...John's chanting and voice are very grounding as always and his storytelling is magnificient which make the audiobook easy and pleadant to follow. This audiobook is a great way to begin exploring very old shamanic practices and wisdoms and to ignite the more dreamers humanity needs.
