– 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.

Shamanic Journey CDs and MP3s, New Look, Even Better; Digital Download: Drumming, Rattle, Didjeridu, Musical Bow, Singing Chorus

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Michael Harner’s CD No. 1: Shamanic Journey Solo and Double Drumming is now available forMP3  digital download on the Foundation’s website. The solo drumming is in the classic mode by Michael Harner using a single-headed, round-frame, hand drum. The double drumming, which some journeyers prefer, is also by Michael Harner, assisted by David Corbin. Both are using single-headed, round-frame drums. The drums are beaten facing each other at a slight angle, about four feet apart, to produce the maximum effect without excessive reverberation. Program 15 and 30 minute solo or double drumming play with callback.

CDs are getting a new look, with even better sound. CDs 1 and 7 have been digitally remastered in 2010.

No. 5: Michael Harner’s Shamanic Double Drumming (TM) NEW to CD
The use of two drums, played facing each other, creates more reverberations and overtones than are usually produced by one drum alone. The slower measured beat of this recording is useful for many shamanic practices, such as calling in the spirits, and may also be used for journeying. Digitally remastered to CD June 2010.

All of the Shamanic Journey CDs in the series are now available in MP# format for convenient digital download:

  • No. 2: Michael Harner’s Shamanic Journey Didjeridu
  • No. 3: Michael Harner’s Shamanic Journey Singing Chorus
  • No. 4: Michael Harner’s Shamanic Journey Musical Bow
  • No. 6: Michael Harner’s Shamanic Journey Rattle
  • No. 7: Michael Harner’s Shamanic Journey Multiple Drumming
