This remarkable story began with a dream that called a young blond South African to spend years studying shamanism and he describes the time he spent with a Korean Zen master. One day, when he was back in South Africe, he was asked if he wanted to be a sangoma; thus he became an apprentice to the secrets of medicine, dreams and dance, His final initiations with the Xhosa community involved animal sacrifice, and this confused his certainty about the Buddhist teaching not to kill, but once again powerful dreams led him on to enter initiation and the spiral of transformation to become a Leopard Warrior. An amazing story, modestly told.
