Gogo Moyo is a Sangoma (Traditional Healer). She heeded her calling at the tender age of 19 and has been a practicing Sangoma since her initiation - in which she uses bones as a divination method.
A Sangoma is a diviner, healer and spirit medium that has been initiated into ubungoma (the process and procedures of becoming a sangoma) through the process of ukuthwasa.
Gogo Moyo plays the role of a healer, teacher (Gobela), advisor and counselor within her community. She leverages off the technologically innovative mediums afforded to her and she mainly uses YouTube to share ancient teachings of ubungoma and the different cultures in our diverse communities. She is passionate about an African inspired and liberated lifestyle which mainly focuses on the freedom of expression.
Her biggest focus is on understanding that spirituality opens our worlds to interacting and engaging each other’s groups and spaces, which we would otherwise not so easily access. Since her initiation at only age 19, most of Gogo Moyo's adulthood has been to embrace, celebrate and educate about our people and the differences in our customs.

On this week's episode of #GMTV I will be sharing the juice of my birthday road trip to KZN and dropping all the details of my latest competition. There's a celebratory dining experience loading.
A Sangoma is a traditional medicine practitioner, or shaman, of South Africa. Sangomas communicate with Ancestors, work with plant medicine (herbalism) and use the power of prayer for healing. While most practice all three, you will find others that work solely with one or any combination of these methods. Their training varies depending on lineage and land location. However, what they all have in common is a calling to serve their families, their communities and the Earth in accordance with the unconditional love of God (Goddess, Creator, Universe, Source, Great Spirit, Allah, Buddha, etc.). Being a Sangoma is not and does not replace a religious practice. It is a way of life. All are one.
"Being a gifted child is difficult and requires a certain level of consciousness and selflessness to understand and learn about ones role in the community. I aim at the challenging systems that exist which don't allow us the freedom to be, practice and celebrate our uniqueness."
