Raised in a culture where the Earth is considered as sacred and holys the heavens, where Consciousness is known to reside in a plant, in the birds, in the oceans, mountains, and in you, Mark embodies human life. As a Kahuna and Ninjitsu martial arts Master, he teaches that being grounded is an essential connection to the ancient wisdom entrusted to earthly existence, and that your grounded attention puts you in touch with the wholeness of yourself and the entire Universe.

Do you think you’re awake? If you’ve tasted a level of awareness beyond duality – beyond “me” as subject and “other” as object – you recognize our perceived waking state as a veil to penetrate. Waking up into undivided awareness is no doubt life-changing. Yet it can be disembodied. Waking down is the essential second half of the journey, stabilizing and integrating esoteric wisdom back into the body…into the bone. When this happens matter is spiritualized, made completely Aware, and life embodied is known as heaven. This individual becomes an instrument of the highest order, living from above the ceiling of usual awareness. When this happens, you become the instrument of transformation.

John is one of the first white men in recent history to become a fully-initiated sangoma priest in the Xhosa lineage of South Africa. In the Foreword of John’s book, Leopard Warrior, our Malidona Some wrote, “John is testimony to the ways in which the African ancestry pick and choose who they want to be the voice of their wisdom in the world... His life is a testimony of a hero’s journey into uncharted territories. He is an artisan of these teachings and more... his work deserves respect and reverence.”
Having spent a long weekend in ceremony with John recently, I completely agree. I am honored to introduce all of you to John... and he, in turn, to introduce you to the Way of the Leopard!
