THE SHAMANIC WORLDVIEW: EVERYTHING IS ALIVE™ (ONLINE)
(a 7 hour online workshop delivered in two 3.5-hour sessions or one 7-hour session)


The Shamanic Worldview is the basis for the ethical and effective practice of shamanism. Experiential knowledge of this worldview leads us to a profound awareness of the sacred nature of our world and an awakening of compassion. This results in a deep desire to relieve pain and suffering and restore balance and harmony in ourselves, others, and our world. 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
  • All is one—interconnected and related to everything else
  • Independent spirituality—the shaman as “one who knows”
  • The implications of these principles related to permission when doing shamanic healing and divination

This experiential online training taught by FSS faculty members is offered via Zoom video conferencing, which is free to individual users. Participants will see and hear each other and interact in pairs and small groups, as well as in the full circle.

SHAMANISM, SPIRITS, AND HEALING

  • 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.

This experiential online training taught by FSS faculty members is offered via Zoom video conferencing, which is free to individual users.

THE SHAMAN AS PSYCHOPOMP


Shamans are concerned with the human soul, with healing during life and assisting the soul's passage out of this 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 this Middle World to a place where the soul can receive help in taking the next steps on its path.

The focus of this training is on learning and practicing the shamanic 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;
  • Locate a soul in the Middle World that may be stuck and in need of help;
  • Obtain the soul's permission to offer shamanic assistance;
  • Guide the soul to a place in the Upper or Lower World where it will be helped to continue on its journey.
The course consists of 10.5 hours of training offered in three sessions of 3.5 hours each.

The Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Power and Healing, The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism.®


Below is the prerequisite, introductory workshop required for all advanced workshops and courses. During this Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to Core Shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods used by shamans to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey. The shamanic journey is one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.

Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature. Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. Participants are also provided with methods for journeying so they can meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice.

Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet. Completion of this Basic Workshop with an authorized Foundation Faculty Member qualifies participants to take the advanced FSS workshops.

Shamanism and the Spirits of Nature


From ancient times, shamans have worked with the spirits of nature for healing, survival, and knowledge. By learning from the plants and animals, from the rocks and mountains, from the winds and waters, and from the sun, moon, and stars, shamans helped their peoples live in harmony with the universe. In a world now out of balance, the way of the shaman can teach us again how to respect nature, our Planet, and its inhabitants at a deep spiritual level. As our ancestors everywhere once knew, our survival depends on the survival of other species. By working together intensively through shamanic journeys and other spiritual experiences in this workshop, we will dedicate ourselves to working in both non-ordinary and ordinary reality to restore and maintain a healthy, living Planet.

Shamanism, Dying and Beyond


Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the "destiny of souls" or what happens to souls when they pass, from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with after-death realms, tracking a person who has passed using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over and classic psychopomp work (guiding souls who have passed).

Shamanic Divination Training


One of the classic tasks of the shaman is to journey into non-ordinary reality in order to obtain answers to questions, both at the request of others and for oneself. Participants in the workshop have the opportunity to engage in divination journeys for each other as well as for themselves and to gain experience in using a wide variety of time-tested shamanic divination techniques. In the shamanic search to become persons of knowledge, participants learn, as shamans have from time immemorial, how to converse with plant and animal spirits, how to learn about the use of quartz crystals, and how to seek and receive revelatory knowledge from visionary sources.

Advanced Shamanic Healing Practice


NEW! This two-day workshop is designed to provide to students with advanced FSS training the opportunity for hands-on healing practice using multiple core shamanic methods.

The first day includes a review and practice of these primary methods: extraction healing, power animal retrieval, psychopomp work, and power soul retrieval. General parameters of a shamanic healing session as well as important ethical considerations will be discussed.

On day two, participants will have the opportunity to offer a complete shamanic healing session for another workshop participant. Afterward there will be group Q & A and discussion focused on clarifying the methodologies and addressing issues that arise during the healing sessions.

This training provides students the opportunity to "put it all together" by applying multiple core shamanic healing methods in a solo session for another participant. This is also a rare chance to exchange information and discuss shamanic healing with other advanced practitioners.

Those who are beginning a shamanic healing practice, as well as seasoned practitioners seeking to increase their proficiency, can benefit from this hands-on training.
Prerequisite FSS Workshops
This hands-on practice in advanced shamanic healing requires the following prerequisites:

Three advanced workshops: a. Shamanic Extraction Healing Training, b. Shamanism, Dying and Beyond, and c. Power Soul Retrieval (or the FSS Five Day Soul Retrieval Training completed before October 2009); or Completion of the Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive (offered annually on both coasts of the USA).

Note: In addition to the above required courses, Shamanism Practicum: Guidelines for a Healthy Shamanic Practice is highly recommended.

Power Soul Retrieval Training™


The Foundation of Shamanic Studies is pleased to announce this new advanced weekend workshop: Power Soul Retrieval Training developed by Michael Harner.

Learning shamanism is not just a matter of acquiring methods, but also of increasing spiritual power and knowing how to use it. From the shamanic point of view, people who are not spiritually "powerful-filled" are prone to illness, accidents, and misfortune. Anyone who has had a traumatic experience may lose a portion of their soul, of their spiritual essence. There are also other reasons why this may occur. In the workshop, participants will learn about soul loss and soul retrieval from a shamanic perspective. There will be particular emphasis on the importance of shamanic power to do successful soul retrieval. Participants will also learn how to re-empower a client's soul after a soul portion has been returned so that the client is once again spiritually power-filled, leading to greater health and well-being. This soul retrieval is based on world-wide core shamanic principles and methods. It does not require Western psychological perspectives and practices.

Prerequisite FSS Workshops
Because effective soul retrieval practice is based in shamanic power, which comes from strong connections with helping spirits and advanced practice in shamanism, participation in this program requires the following prerequisites:

Three Weekend Workshops:
  • The Way of the Shaman (Basic Workshop)
  • Shamanism: Dying and Beyond
  • Shamanic Extraction Healing Training

OR Completion of the FSS Two Week Intensive Healing Program

The Way of the Shaman workshop is the prerequisite for this advanced workshop.
