The FSS is postponing in-person workshops and training programs during the pandemic. Though we may not be able to meet in person for a time, many powerful digital tools are available for face-to-face learning and practice. The Foundation and the FSS faculty are offering fully interactive and experiential workshops and community meetings by Zoom video conferencing. Once the crisis passes, FSS in-person workshops and training will be rescheduled and future online offerings will be evaluated.

Shamanic Divination in Practice

The skilled practice of shamanic divination, the process of consulting the spirits for knowledge, is an essential aspect of shamanic healing and of bringing the wisdom of the helping spirits to bear on personal, local, and global issues. This workshop offers students opportunities to practice journeying to contact their compassionate spirit helpers and to enhance their abilities to form on-topic questions and interpret the messages received. Participants will also experience classic shamanic ways to build and nurture strong relationships with their own spirits.

Shamanism for Inspired Local & Global Change™ (online)

In these challenging times, shamanic work, when combined with ordinary reality knowledge and action, can make an immense contribution toward effective long-term solutions for community and global problems. Shamanic divination – asking the fully compassionate spirits for answers to questions – is particularly helpful in providing inspired and workable ways to address complex issues in ordinary reality. This workshop offers practical methods to gain and apply wisdom from the spirits to resolve persistent problems facing humanity, our precious Earth, and its inhabitants.

COMING SOON: The Shamanic Worldview: Everything is Alive™

The shamanic worldview underpins the ethical and effective practice of shamanism. Experiential knowledge of this worldview leads to a profound awareness of the sacred nature of our world and an awakening of compassion, resulting in a deep desire to relieve pain and suffering and restore balance and harmony.

IV. COMING SOON: Shamanic Healing Series Online Program

Beginning in the Fall 2020, FSS will offer a series of shamanic healing workshops online. The series will consist of the primary shamanic healing methods, with supporting workshops in healing-related topics to provide depth and increase participants’ effectiveness in the methodologies. The workshops will be rolled out one at a time, with each workshop serving as a prerequisite to those that follow. (Selected FSS in-person weekend workshops may serve as prerequisites for some of the online offerings.) Online workshops will be taught by the FSS faculty and students may choose workshops at their convenience from among the calendared offerings.

Please note: These online trainings do not duplicate the full and rich content or the group experience of the in-person weekend workshops, though the healing methods themselves are the same. When we are able to offer in-person training again, it is highly recommended that those who desire additional depth and hands-on practice, take the in-person weekend workshops to master the methods.
