Shamanic Extraction Healing Method™

IN THE Shamanic Healing Online Training Program

Shamanic extraction healing is a powerful practice for treating localized pain and illness resulting from spiritual factors. "The shaman works to remove things that interfere with the health of the body, such as spiritual intrusions, and extract them. This is not done through journeying. It's done through working here in the Middle World in an altered state of consciousness." Michael Harner, Shamanic Healing

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

  • Learn methods to build spiritual power to prepare for extraction practice
  • Sense and see spiritual intrusions, which may be causing localized illness
  • Practice with other participants to safely extract (remove) spiritual intrusions
  • Re-empower a client after a shamanic extraction to restore health and well-being
What students say:
"Inspirational, life changing, humbling."

"I found this workshop to be very informative and helpful. I liked that we worked on building our strength and power throughout the course. I appreciated how the course built up to extraction work so that it felt manageable and doable."

"This was one of the most powerful workshops for me. Perhaps taking most of the FSS offered courses has laid a strong foundation, and now I am feeling more comfortable with the practice and find it spiritually rewarding. It was a beautiful spiritual experience for me."

"I loved every minute of it. It was very powerful, collaborative and nourishing."

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.
