Dear Ubuntu Friend,

As the seasons start to change and our spirits start to move inwards to the dream time, I find myself appreciating the wonderful summer that has gone by.

I recently received a copy of my 'Sangoma teachings' interview when I was interviewed by the Earth Medicine Alliance in San Francisco in June. Please click above to view. I especially liked performing the Sangoma chant to honour Nelson Mandela.Enjoy!

I did a pilgrimage to Ireland where I climbed the legendary, Croagh Patrick mountain. The mountain of visions, dreams and mysticism. It was a beautiful day, and I was astounded by the age range of pilgrims from 3 to 68 years! And the amazing tenacity and spiritual fervour of all, seeing as it is a hard vertical climb! I recommend pilgrimages to ignite your spirituality and inspiration.

My Ubuntu medicine journey continues to feed me on many different levels and I am being blessed by adventures in new and interesting places. I took part in the pagan conference, PaGE2012 in Belgium. It was my first time in Belgium. The conference was a wonderful success with people singing, dancing and being together.

I am looking forward to my upcoming workshops and collaborations. I will be teaching alongside Charlie Morley on Sunday for our talk 'Healing through Dreaming'. And next week I have been invited by Ya'Acov Khan of the school of movement medicine to do a spiritual performance for his community in Totnes, Devon. And no season could be complete without a tour of Glastonbury. I will give a talk there on the 23rd September.

For my upcoming events around the UK, USA & Canada please read below.

As human beings we have the wonderful facility of being able to re-create ourselves. We do this through dreaming, visions and inspiration. I look forward to the day when these gifts can find a way to deal with our shadows of violence, corruption and greed. With the right intention I beleive it is possible.

I wish you all an inspirational and dream filled Fall!

I look forward to meeting you again.

Warm wishes,

I can only help people who are willing to work. I am a simple guide, teacher and healer. My job is to facilitate peoples' healing process, not to do it for them. 
The spiritual journey is often called the 'Hero's quest' because it involves courage, fortitude, and discipline. Saying all this it can also be a great deal of fun.
"My journey is about reconciliation and part of my job is to help heal the past. When people are more connected with their own spirits, there is less of a desire to destroy or put down another. I don't intend to bring Xhosa or South African shamanic culture to the West as such, but rather to use its essence - the techniques of prayer, dream work and connection to nature - to help people connect with their own ancestors and spiritual traditions."  - John Lockley
