“The Three-Year Program has changed my life on a cellular level. It has been the best experience of my life!” – A Recent Graduate
“I love my life now. Since I’ve been doing this work, I have a deep sense of my purpose on this planet. That is not something I thought I would ever have. My life is deep, purposeful, profound and fun!”
- Three Year Program Participant
Originated by Michael Harner, this course is the most advanced training in shamanism and shamanic healing offered by the Foundation and generally is considered unparalleled in the world. It involves intensive extended training in progressively higher levels of very advanced shamanism, including initiations into rare and little-known practices and principles.
In this residential program, the same group of participants meets for a week twice a year (usually May and October) for three years, with practical assignments between meetings. The program is devoted to the objective of advancing the participants’ knowledge and practice as far as possible during the three years. Enrollment is limited. Sessions are held at a retreat center; on-site lodging and meals will be arranged during registration.
Alicia L. Gates has studied with Michael Harner for more than twenty years. She has worked with thousands of shamanic clients and has a profound depth of knowledge and practical experience. “Alicia is an outstanding shamanic practitioner and healer, and in recent years, working alongside me, has been the principal teacher of the West Coast Three-Year programs and the Two-Week Intensives,” states Michael Harner. Alicia brings to her teaching a clarity and certainty about shamanic healing methods that can only come through long experience and a deep love for the work. Says one workshop participant: “I felt very connected to Alicia and most grateful that someone as gifted and deeply connected to source energy is willing to share her considerable talent and knowledge with us.”
