ONLINE WORKSHOPS & OFFERINGS

The Shaman As Psychopomp™

IN THE Shamanic Healing Online Training Program

Shamans are concerned with the human soul, with healing during life and assisting the soul's passage out of the Middle World after death. Familiar with the realms of the dead, a shaman can act as a psychopomp - a conductor of souls. A trained shamanic practitioner is able to guide the soul of a deceased person out of the Middle World to a place where the soul can receive help in taking the next step on its path. The focus of this training is on learning and practicing the psychopomp method.

In this fully experiential workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore what happens for human souls from a core shamanic perspective after they leave the body - the "destiny of human souls" in the Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds
  • Learn and practice the psychopomp method to help the souls of the deceased out of the Middle World to a better place
  • How to locate a soul in the Middle World that may be stuck and in need of help
  • How to obtain the soul's permission to offer shamanic assistance
  • How to guide the soul to a place in the Upper or Lower World where it will be helped to continue on its journey

This 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 and workshop access will be provided by the instructor after registration. The course consists of 10.5 hours of training. Faculty members may teach the workshop in three 3.5-hour sessions or one seven-hour and one 3.5-hour session.

PREREQUISITES (available online now).
