The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power™

The shamanic journey is a remarkable visionary method for entering into another reality with discipline and purpose. Using classic drumming techniques to alter consciousness, participants will be introduced to the shamanic journey to awaken one's soul and dormant spiritual power. Travel outside of time and space into another reality and make contact with compassionate helping spirits, such as teachers and power animals, for personal wisdom and to gain knowledge to help create a better world.

Participants say:

"MAGIC! It really is amazing to do this work and get results from journeys that are helpful and powerful. We seemed to be able to work with different people in pairs or threes and got to feel the essence of the people in circle."

"Content is ideal for a beginner; with basic skills and practice, a new student learns just enough to practice after attending workshop. With Zoom, I felt as connected as if in-person; as if we were in the same room."

"Exhilarating in this day and age that something so liberating could be made so accessible. Afterwards, I was so inspired and encouraged I journeyed for a few more hours and was uplifted by the results. This workshop was a life changer; so much more than imagined was given to me."

"It amazes me how well these zoom sessions work, to the extent that I have lost patience with classes I take in other fields. They fail to use the variety of options that the Foundation uses, like breakout rooms, breaks, and practicing our skills."

This experiential online training taught by FSS faculty members is offered via Zoom video conferencing. Participants will see and hear each other and interact in pairs and small groups, as well as in the full circle. (All students must participate with audio and video and access the meeting through their own individual device.) Instructions for Zoom (free to individual users) and workshop access will be provided by the instructor after registration. The course consists of 7 hours of training. Faculty members may teach the workshop in two 3.5-hour sessions or in a one-day version.

The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power is the prerequisite workshop for other online workshops offered by the FSS. The in-person Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman also meets the prerequisite for FSS online advanced workshops. Please note: The Shamanic Journey online workshop does not meet the prerequisite for the FSS in-person advanced weekend workshops. The Basic Workshop: The Way of the Shaman will still be required for the in-person workshops.

Completion of the entire workshop (7 hours) is required for credit.
