When James Hall was working in Africa with legendary singer Miriam Makeba, she perceived he had the rare gift to see both into the future & into people's souls. She urged Hall to consult a Sangoma, a traditional healer, who told him he was possessed by ancestral spirits who could give him the power to heal others & to become a Sangoma himself. He underwent a 2-year initiation into the mysteries of psychic possession & traditional healing. He also learned how to read meanings & messages in his set of divination bones, & began his education in the collection & preparation of plants & roots used as traditional medicines. Photos.
