Mandaza Kandemwa's picture

Mandaza is a spirit-medium and medicine-man from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. He was born a svikiro – a carrier of many earth and water spirits. He is a mhondoro, a Lion Shaman, one who is constantly in prayer on behalf of others. He was initiated through the tradition of the njuzu, the Water Spirits.

As a vessel of the Spirits, Mandaza receives visions and dreams, makes offerings, performs healing rituals, and serves as a messenger for the Ancient Ones. Mandaza carries with him in his heart the African spiritual tradition of healing and peacemaking. He is known internationally for his loving presence and for his preservation of the old ways. He stands for Truth, Love, Justice and Peace in this world. Like the Water Spirits he carries, Mandaza flows between the worlds, moving easily between the worlds of religion and the secular, the traditional and the modern, the industrial and the earth ways, all that is sacred and profane. Mandaza works from home and travels internationally, offering teachings and healing counsel to groups and individuals of all backgrounds and cultures. Mandaza teaches us to become "living prayers" in service of the One Spirit that exists in all things.
