Fresh from spending many weeks in the wilderness of the Kalahari Desert, traditional South African shaman John Lockley dives deeply into the wisdom he has cultivated through spiritual practice involving nature, the elements, and his ancestors. In this episode we explore:

  • The creation of the Kalahari retreat - praying to do wilderness work, being guided to a tracker in Botswana, and the tracker's mystical communication with a leopard which called for John's presence.
  • Mission to transmit ancient teachings of Africa and the wilderness to people from overseas. Using dreams to connect with the inner tracker and ancestors and teach the external tracking of wilderness.
  • Viruses work through nature in the wilderness to balance populations of species when needed, and how this is now illustrated at the human level with coronavirus.
  • Contrast in cultures regarding coronavirus. John's work in South Africa often deals with death and suffering. For many in the US death is not in the forefront of life which has allowed for denial and detachment from the natural cycle of life.
  • John's earliest teachers were wounded special forces soldiers during the Angolan War when he was an Army medic. He was keenly interested with determining why the black African special forces soldiers were healing at more than three times faster than their white counterparts when the treatment offered was identical.
  • Animal world is watching us with intelligence and communicates with us.
  • African wilderness has so much to teach beyond merely seeing the animals in the flesh, but the greater opportunity is tuning into their spirit.
