ADVANCED WEEKEND WORKSHOPS

Shamanism for Inspired Local and Global Change™

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.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Practice applying shamanic divination/journeying methods to the problem-solving process
  • Use shamanic divination to gain insight into real-world issues you care about
  • Examine ethical guidelines and issues of permission
  • Look at some of the personal benefits of spirit-inspired community action
  • Explore possible ways to ethically invoke the presence and power of the compassionate spirits in our world

This training is not designed for people looking for personal healing.

Prerequisite: the FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman, with an authorized FSS Faculty Member.

Note: Since this training requires many shamanic journeys, before enrolling it is recommended that you have had success journeying to at least one power animal or teacher of the Lower or Upper Worlds.

Recommended (optional): Shamanic Divination Training

PRE-ASSIGNMENT. There will be a pre-assignment to bring with you to the training, which will be sent to you about a week before the training. It should take you no more than 30 minutes to complete.

WHAT TO BRING. Please bring a rattle or a drum if you have one. Wear comfortable clothing, warm socks, and bring a bandanna, cushion and/or blanket (if the sponsor does not provide cushions), and a pen and notebook to record your journeys.

Students say:

"For years, many of us had been discussing our desire to learn how to use Shamanic practices to help heal the planet. What the workshop presented so well was an ethical framework for how I can proceed. I knew it wouldn't be as easy as me journeying to my compassionate spirits and instructing them to take this quest on. Having a structure for knowing how to check in with them to make sure I am on the optimal path was extremely helpful."

"The many journeys to and with my helping spirits allowed me to focus on possible solutions, some of which came to me after the workshop ended. The workshop gave me the luxury of time and focus for an issue I care about deeply and reminded me to connect more frequently with my helping spirits. I had forgotten how much I love to do so and how much help they are."

"This workshop helped me to recognize some of my barriers to making a difference in this time and offered tools/practices to engage my spirits in my daily work. I often feel that I cannot make a difference. The workshop showed me to journey more, connect with my spirits more, engage all elements with heart and compassion. I am now seeking special moments where I can make a difference. It is freeing and simple."
