About this Workshop

In these challenging times, shamanic work, when combined with ordinary reality knowledge and action, can make an immense contribution toward effective long-term solutions for community and global problems. Shamanic divination - asking the fully compassionate spirits for answers to questions - is particularly helpful in providing inspired and workable ways to address complex issues in ordinary reality.

This workshop offers practical methods to gain and apply wisdom from the spirits to resolve persistent problems facing humanity, our precious Earth, and its inhabitants.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Practice applying shamanic divination/journeying methods to the problem-solving process
  • Use shamanic divination to gain insight into real-world issues you care about
  • Examine ethical guidelines and issues of permission
  • Look at some of the personal benefits of spirit-inspired community action
  • Explore possible ways to ethically bring the power of the compassionate spirits to our world

PREREQUISITES: (1) “The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power” workshop (online) OR the in-person “Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism,” AND (2) The online workshop in “Shamanic Divination in Practice.” OR any of the Foundation’s in-person advanced weekend workshops.

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.

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.) Instructions for Zoom and workshop access will be provided by the instructor after registration. The course consists of six hours of training. Faculty members may teach the workshop in two three-hour sessions or in a one-day version.

The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge & Power (or the in-person Basic Workshop) is a prerequisite for other online workshops offered by the FSS. Completion of the entire workshop (6 hours) is required for credit.
