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.


  • Activate your physical senses—how to unlock the hidden magic in your vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch
  • Ignite your intuition—practices to strengthen your “sixth sense” of deep knowing and spiritual awareness
  • Honoring your ancestors—powerful ways to connect to the living lineage in your blood and bones, as well as your adopted and spiritual ancestry
  • Shaking medicine—use your breath, body, and heart to activate your “lightning rod” (spine) for spiritual power and wisdom
  • Plant medicine—using plants in your environment for cleansing, healing, and connecting to the natural world
  • Overcoming obstacles—the most common roadblocks to spiritual practice and how to clear them
  • The practice of dreaming—how to receive the wisdom of your dreams and use them as a gateway to your true eternal nature

Beautiful message

John first made a very good impression on me at Sounds True’s shamanic summit a year or so ago. He has a very pure, heartfelt message. This program is a gem.
