What participants are saying:

Absolutely phenomenal.

Beyond words.

It was life changing. Experiences unexplained from my earliest memories have been tapped into during this workshop that fill me with healing, guidance, wisdom and teaching. I will never dream the same again.

Beyond my wildest imaginings!

On August 14, 2010, at the first public offering of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies Shamanic Dreamwork workshop, San Francisco, California, Michael Harner presented his recently formulated "A Core Shamanic Theory of Dreams."
