What is a Sangoma

isangomaa traditional healer or diviner.

The Sangoma’s abilities or power have always been based on the fact that he/she is directly connected or an incarnation of an ancestral spirit or guide and being a manifestation of an inherited spirit allows the Sangoma to thus have a direct line with the universe and open to all channels of communication.

Although sangoma is a Zulu term that is colloquially used to commonly describe all types of Southern African traditional healers, there are differences between practices: an inyanga is concerned mainly with medicines made from plants and animals, while a sangoma relies primarily on divination for healing purposes and might also be considered a type of fortune teller.
