Our Continuing Work, A Statement from FSS President Susan Mokelke

Remembering Michael
Continuing Michael Harner’s work in the Foundation
A Statement from FSS President Susan Mokelke

Michael and Sandra Harner’s focus has always been on the work itself, as stated in the Foundation’s mission: “Dedicated to the preservation, study, and teaching of shamanic knowledge for the welfare of the Planet and its inhabitants.” They, along with the Board of Trustees, had the wisdom more than a decade ago to imagine this time of change and to carefully and meticulously prepare and train the faculty, staff, and a new president to carry the mission forward seamlessly. The Foundation is in good heart and is thriving and growing, fostering the current and next generation of shamanic healers and practitioners. Read the statement.

February 3, 2018

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Michael Harner, Founder of the FSS and originator of Core Shamanism, transitioned early in the morning of February 3.

He was supported in the days prior to his passage by his loving wife Sandra Harner and his devoted family. He passed peacefully out of this world and on to the next.

Michael’s legacy lives on in this world through all of you — his tens of thousands of students and practitioners of shamanism. His work will continue into the future through the educational efforts of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
