The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power™
Saturday October 10, 10am-5:30pm

The shamanic journey is a remarkable visionary method for entering into another reality with discipline and purpose. Using classic drumming techniques to alter consciousness, participants will be introduced to the shamanic journey to awaken one's soul and dormant spiritual power. Travel outside of time and space into another reality and make contact with compassionate helping spirits, such as teachers and power animals, for personal wisdom and to gain knowledge to help create a better world.

This experiential online training taught by FSS faculty members is offered via Zoom video conferencing. Participants will see and hear each other and interact in pairs and small groups, as well as in the full circle. (All students must participate with audio and video and access the meeting through their own individual device.) Instructions for Zoom (free to individual users) and workshop access will be provided by the instructor after registration. The course consists of 7 hours of training. 

The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power is the prerequisite workshop for other online workshops offered by the FSS. The in-person Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman also meets the prerequisite for FSS online advanced workshops. Please note: The Shamanic Journey online workshop does not meet the prerequisite for the FSS in-person advanced weekend workshops. The Basic Workshop: The Way of the Shaman will still be required for the in-person workshops.

Cost is $140 for this workshop

Shamanic Divination in Practice

Saturday October 24, 10am-5:30pm

**Prerequisite: The Shamanic Journey or The Way of the Shaman, taught by a qualified FSS faculty member

The skilled practice of shamanic divination, the process of consulting the spirits for knowledge, is an essential aspect of shamanic healing and of bringing the wisdom of the helping spirits to bear on personal, local, and global issues. This workshop offers students opportunities to practice methods for contacting their compassionate spirit helpers, particularly through the shamanic journey, and to enhance their abilities to form on-topic questions and interpret the messages received. Participants will also experience classic shamanic ways to build and nurture strong relationships with their own spirits.

Shamanism for Inspired Local and Global Change
Saturday December 5 and Saturday December 12, 10am-5:30pm

**Prerequisite: The Shamanic Journey and Shamanic Divination in Practice (online), or any of the FSS advanced weekend workshops (in person)

In these challenging times, shamanic work, when combined with ordinary reality knowledge and action, can make an immense contribution toward effective long-term solutions for community and global problems. Shamanic divination - asking the fully compassionate spirits for answers to questions - is particularly helpful in providing inspired and workable ways to address complex issues in ordinary reality.

This workshop offers practical methods to gain and apply wisdom from the spirits to resolve persistent problems facing humanity, our precious Earth, and its inhabitants.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Practice applying shamanic divination/journeying methods to the problem-solving process

  • Use shamanic divination to gain insight into real-world issues you care about

  • Examine ethical guidelines and issues of permission

  • Look at some of the personal benefits of spirit-inspired community action

  • Explore possible ways to ethically bring the power of the compassionate spirits to our world

Cost is $275 for this workshop
