The Shamanic Worldview: Everything is Alive

Thursdays April 20th and 27th, 5pm-8:30pm


**Prerequisites: The Shamanic Journey and Shamanic Divination in Practice (online) or The Way of the Shaman (in person)

This workshop will be required to complete the Healing Series


The shamanic worldview underpins the ethical and effective practice of shamanism. Experiential knowledge of this worldview leads to a profound awareness of the sacred nature of our world and an awakening of compassion, resulting in a deep desire to relieve pain and suffering and restore balance and harmony.

Using journeying and experiential shamanic methods, in this online workshop you will have the opportunity to personally explore and experience the fundamental aspects of the shaman's worldview:

  • Everything is alive and has spirit

  • Unity: We are part of, connected with, the totality of nature

  • Independent spirituality, the shaman as "one who knows"

  • The implications of these principles related to permission when doing shamanic healing and divination

Cost is $150 for this workshop

Shamanism, Spirits, and Healing

Thursday May 18th and 25th, 5pm-8:30pm

**Prerequisites: The Shamanic Journey and Shamanic Divination in Practice (online) or The Way of the Shaman (in person)

**Strongly recommended: The Shamanic Worldview

This workshop is required to continue with the Healing Series

Effective shamanic practice depends upon knowledge of the spirit realms and how to access them to build strong relationships with the compassionate helping spirits. Powerful shamanic healing requires training, discipline, and experience.

In this experiential workshop, which sets the context for the Shamanic Healing Online Training Program, you will have the opportunity to personally explore:

  • The three worlds of the shaman (Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds) and the qualities of ordinary and non-ordinary reality;

  • The nature of the spirits of the three worlds;

  • Middle World non-ordinary reality spiritual aspects and their relationship to illness and wholeness.

Primary shamanic healing methods will be described, including shamanic extraction healing, psychopomp to help the spirits of the deceased, and soul retrieval. You will learn and practice power animal retrieval, with the chance to work with another participant to both retrieve and receive a power animal.

In addition to the items listed at the top of the page, please have with you:

A rock (NOT a crystal) about 2-3" in diameter, preferably found in nature, that is new to you

A human-made piece of artwork that is able to be visible on your screen (Examples: A sculpture, ceramic dish/vase, painting, weaving, stuffed animal, jewelry (larger), drawing, etc. NO ELECTRONICS OR PHOTOGRAPHS -- nothing with people in it.)

The Shaman As Psychopomp

Thursdays July 20th and 27th and August 3rd, 5-8:30pm

**Prerequisites: The Shamanic Journey and Shamanic Divination in Practice (online) or The Way of the Shaman (in person)

**Strongly recommended: The Shamanic Worldview


Shamans are concerned with the human soul, with healing during life and assisting the soul's passage out of the Middle World after death. Familiar with the realms of the dead, a shaman can act as a psychopomp - a conductor of souls. A trained shamanic practitioner is able to guide the soul of a deceased person out of the Middle World to a place where the soul can receive help in taking the next step on its path. The focus of this training is on learning and practicing the psychopomp method.

In this fully experiential workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore what happens for human souls from a core shamanic perspective after they leave the body - the "destiny of human souls" in the Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds

  • Learn and practice the psychopomp method to help the souls of the deceased out of the Middle World to a better place

  • How to locate a soul in the Middle World that may be stuck and in need of help

  • How to obtain the soul's permission to offer shamanic assistance

  • How to guide the soul to a place in the Upper or Lower World where it will be helped to continue on its journey

Cost is $235 for this workshop

Shamanic Extraction Healing Method
Wednesday August 16th and Thursdays August 24th and 31st, 5-8:30pm

**Prerequisites: The Shaman As Psychopomp and its prerequisites, and The Shamanic Worldview (online) or The Way of the Shaman (in person)


Shamanic extraction healing is a powerful practice for treating localized pain and illness resulting from spiritual factors. "The shaman works to remove things that interfere with the health of the body, such as spiritual intrusions, and extract them. This is not done through journeying. It's done through working here in the Middle World in an altered state of consciousness." Michael Harner, Shamanic Healing

In this fully experiential online workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn methods to build spiritual power to prepare for extraction practice

  • Sense and see spiritual intrusions, which may be causing localized illness

  • Practice with other participants to safely extract (remove) spiritual intrusions

  • Re-empower a client after a shamanic extraction to restore health and well-being

Cost is $235 for this workshop
