Michael Harner provides the keynote address on the ancient and contemporary practice of shamanism and shamanic healing at the first conference on global healing at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
The founder and president of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, Dr. Harner pioneered the introduction of shamanism and the shamanic journey to contemporary life. He is recognized as the world leader in this movement.
In his half century of anthropological fieldwork, cross-cultural studies, experimental research, and first-hand experience, Michael Harner arrived at the core methods of shamans worldwide. The applicability of this "core shamanism" to contemporary Westerners has been substantiated by the experiences of his thousands of students. The experiential methods are simple, safe, and have been used successfully by them with positive life-changing results.
Honoring the oral tradition of indigenous shamans, for the last quarter century, Dr. Harner has conveyed his shamanic knowledge first-hand through teaching and experiential work rather than through writing. Today, he and the FSS Faculty trained by him annually teach thousands of students, who in turn introduce thousands more to shamanism.
