Basic Workshop: The Way of the Shaman(R)

  • During this workshop you will be introduced to basic techniques in core shamanism, the universal and near universal methods used by shamans:
  • How to journey to non ordinary reality
  • How to meet and communicate with your Spirit helpers
  • How to ask for help and healing
  • How to retrieve information for yourself and for the benefit of others
  • How to communicate with Nature for divination purposes

Shamanic Extraction Healing Training

Participants are initiated into the extraction method of healing, including how to see, sense, and remove localized illness and pain connected to spiritual factors. This is an important part of shamanic healing training. The training includes learning how shamanic practitioners can work in partnership to increase the effectiveness of this work. The Extraction Healing Training workshop is designed exclusively for people who want to bring shamanic healing work into their practice with others. The training is not designed for people looking for personal healing.

Shamanism, Dying, and Beyond

Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help people affected by a terminal illness or those who have already passed on. Additional learning will include how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, following a person’s spirit using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.

Harner Shamanic Counseling Training August 2016, San Francisco Bay Area

“The HSC work is among the most powerful I have encountered, not only for myself at the training, but in use with clients afterwards. With regard to the training itself, I really loved it. I came away, not only with insights and new practices for myself, but a method I can use to help clients develop their own disciplined work and connection to helping spirits,” says Susan Rossi.

This five-day course provides intensive preparation in a highly effective system of personal problem-solving and guidance for those who wish to use the methods for themselves or professionally for others. Harner Shamanic Counseling (HSC) was originated in the early 1980s by Michael Harner based on his earlier devised core shamanism.

“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.
