ONLINE WORKSHOPS & OFFERINGS

Shamanism, Spirits, and Healing™

IN THE Shamanic Healing Online Training Program

Effective shamanic practice depends upon knowledge of the spirit realms and how to access them to build strong relationships with the compassionate helping spirits. Powerful shamanic healing requires training, discipline, and experience.

In this experiential workshop, which sets the context for the Shamanic Healing Online Training Program, you will have the opportunity to personally explore:

  • The three worlds of the shaman (Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds) and the qualities of ordinary and non-ordinary reality;
  • The nature of the spirits of the three worlds;
  • Middle World non-ordinary reality spiritual aspects and their relationship to illness and wholeness.
Primary shamanic healing methods will be described, including shamanic extraction healing, psychopomp to help the spirits of the deceased, and soul retrieval. You will learn and practice power animal retrieval, with the chance to work with another participant to both retrieve and receive a power animal.

This experiential online training taught by FSS faculty members is offered via Zoom video conferencing, which is free to individual users. 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 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 one seven-hour session.

FOR THE MEETING. Please have handy a notebook/pen for notes, a rattle, a drum (optional), and an eye covering (bandana or Mindfold) to block ambient light. Please have available for the workshop: 1. A rock (NOT a crystal), approximately 2 -3 inches in diameter, preferably found in nature, new to you. (Remember where you got it so you can return it after the workshop.) 2. A small piece of artwork (large enough to be visible to a partner from your screen). Examples: A sculpture, ceramic dish/vase, painting, weaving, stuffed animal, jewelry (larger), drawing, etc. NO ELECTRONICS OR PHOTOGRAPHS -- nothing with people in it.

Before the workshop, consider a comfortable chair or place to sit or lie down for journeys. Many Zoom users find that headphones or ear buds provide an enhanced listening experience. Check the battery power on your computer/device; you will need it to last 3.5 hours. Please download the latest version of the Zoom app the day of the workshop so you can fully participate. Zoom participant instructions and audio/video settings.
