Foundation for Shamanic Studies Faculty

Faculty members of the Foundation teach workshops worldwide in the core shamanic methods of healing and divination. FSS Faculty are Harner-trained and are experienced shamanic practitioners as well as teachers. FSS faculty members must complete the Three Year Program of Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing and the Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive. All faculty members have active shamanic healing practices; many have over a decade of shamanic healing experience.

In addition to these minimum requirements, faculty members must have taken as a participant each workshop they teach multiple times and are required to update their training periodically with an advanced teacher to ensure knowledge of the latest content. This combination of rigorous experiential training and active shamanic practice has produced a world-class team of shamanic teachers who can help you gain depth in your shamanic training and confidence in your shamanic practice.
