"Excellent, intense, and unexpected. I’ve been journeying and studying for years, and there were plenty of surprises, emotional moments, and solid focused information." – Allison R.
WAY OF THE SHAMAN
Michael Harner's The Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Power and Healing, The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism.®
The Way of the Shaman® is the introductory workshop required for all advanced Foundation for Shamanic Studies workshops. During this basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods used by shamans to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey. The shamanic journey is one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.
Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with nature. Practice includes discussions by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic healing and intuitive tools that can be used when seeking answers to life questions.
Participants are also provided with methods for journeying so they can meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice.
Participants learn how the journey is used to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the planet.
