"The Three-Year Program has changed my life on a cellular level. It has been the best experience of my life!" -- A Recent Graduate
"I love my life now. Since I've been doing this work, I have a deep sense of my purpose on this planet. That is not something I thought I would ever have. My life is deep, purposeful, profound and fun!" -- 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.

She has trained with the FSS and Michael Harner since 1988 and over the past thirty years has developed a broad background in spiritual studies and practices. She teaches for FSS in the greater Los Angeles area, and has had years of experience as part of the teaching staff with Michael Harner and Alicia Gates at the Two-Week Intensive Course and Three-Year Program in Advanced Shamanism and Shamanic Healing on the West Coast.
