The Foundation for Shamanic Studies

Shamanism Workshops and Training Programs
Core Shamanism — Shamanic Healing — Shamanic Initiations

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies integrated series of workshops and advanced shamanic training programs are widely recognized as unparalleled in the world. Originated, researched and developed over nearly 50 years by anthropologist Michael Harner—the pioneer of contemporary shamanism—the Foundation's training offers students the opportunity to learn and practice authentic, powerful, and effective shamanic healing methods to high ethical standards. By taking workshops in a flexible weekend format, students can advance step-by-step in their training. Five-day and longer advanced residential programs, such as the Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive and the Three Year Program of Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing, include profound and life-changing shamanic initiations. The Foundation's experienced Harner-trained practitioner-faculty help to ensure a high-quality, rich, and transformative learning experience. The Foundation's programs are based in decades of practical experience. Whether you are looking to improve your life or to practice shamanic healing in your community, we look forward to assisting you on your shamanic path.
