Introduction to Shamanic Journeying

A Beginner's Training

June 6-7, 2020

Latham, New York


Shamanic journeying is the ancient practice of traveling into the spiritual realms to connect with helping and compassionate spirits for guidance, wisdom, and healing.


In this highly experiential beginner's workshop, you will be introduced to the path of shamanism and the art of shamanic journeying! 

A shamanic practitioner is an individual who enters an altered state of consciousness, and in that altered state, travels through spiritual realities to connect with their helping spirits. Because shamanism is a path of direct revelation, we directly communicate and work with our spirit helpers, empowering us in profound and awe-inspiring ways.

This course focuses not on any one shamanic culture, but instead on working with the transcultural themes and practices present in shamanic cultures across the globe to benefit yourself and others.

In this class, you will discover:

- The definition and practice of shamanism.​

- The three spiritual worlds that shamans work in.​

- How to safely enter an altered state of consciousness using drumming.

- How to take shamanic journeys into the spiritual realms.

- How to receive guidance for yourself and others through shamanic divination.

- How to interpret the messages you receive in your shamanic journeys.

- How to create a drum circle in your community.

- Illness from a shamanic perspective.

- The shamanic healing method of power animal retrieval, and how to bring it to in-person and long distance clients.

And much, much more.

In addition to learning the above principles and techniques, students will connect with like-minded individuals, practice the material with the guidance of a well-trained teacher, and be opened to the amazing reality of the spiritual realms.

No experience with shamanism or a spiritual practice is necessary to participate in this course. Because shamanism is methodology, not a religion or belief system, people of all spiritual and religious traditions can (and do) practice it with great success.

Being introduced to the path of shamanism and learning to work with shamanic journeying gives you a way to work with the helpful spiritual forces of the universe in a practical, loving, and healing way that benefits yourself, others, and all of life!
