The Shamanism Annual is the Foundation's full-color journal, exclusively for Members of the Circle of the Foundation. It includes scholarly articles about shamanism and shamanic consciousness worldwide, and other valuable information not accessible through the FSS E-News or the website.
Polestar is the Foundation's interactive e-post. As a Circle member, you will receive this via a monthly email. Polestar offers a shamanic approach to the issues that influence us daily. We hope that it will support you as you integrate shamanism into your life and enable you to share your questions, concerns, and insights with a thriving network of people.
The Members Voluntary Telephone Directory is published each year in the Shamanism Annual. Inclusion in the Directory is optional. If you choose to be listed, your listing will appear in the 2019 Directory if you join or renew by November 8, 2019; otherwise, your listing will appear in the 2020 Directory. Listing includes your name, telephone number and, if applicable, information about your shamanic training and practice.
