Shamanic Training for Everyone
Beginning to Advanced

Whether your interest is to explore shamanism and put it to work in your life or you are answering the call to become a shamanic healer, teacher, ceremonialist, or scholar, we offer a comprehensive curriculum of in-depth courses designed to assist you through this transformation.

  • STEPPING STONES: AN INTRODUCTION TO SHAMANISM: If you are new to shamanism, or haven't had much formal training, Stepping Stones is the place to start. We carefully and thoroughly introduce all of the essential practices of modern shamanism. Offered as either a one-week residential intensive or an 8-week online class, Stepping Stones prepares you to live more shamanically while giving you the necessary background for further study. Prerequisite: None.
  • THE MEDICINE WAY OF EVERYDAY SHAMANISM: This 2-month hybrid online and residential retreat includes all of our foundational teachings. Students walk the path of becoming a full mesa carrier and receive the 9 rights of the Munay-Ki as well as other shamanic initiations. During the 2 months of this course, you acquire forgotten knowledge, wisdom, and skills, while exploring what it truly means to be human. Prerequisite: Stepping Stones or prior experience with shamanism and strong journey skills.
  • ADVANCED COURSES: Our advanced courses, taught each as a two-day intensive, cover Illumination & Extraction, Soul Retrieval, Death, Dying & Psychopomp, Ceremony & Ritual, Plant Medicine, Advanced Divination, Ancestors & Ancestral Healing, and Advanced Breathwork. Prerequisite: You must either be a graduate of The Medicine Way or have undertaken extensive study with other teachers and have strong journey skills.
  • APPRENTICESHIPS: Students who have completed advanced coursework with us may apply for an apprenticeship. Apprentices gain valuable, hands-on experience with many or all of the aspects of professional shamanic practice. Apprenticeships are appropriate for students who are considering a shamanic healing or training practice of their own. Email to learn more about apprenticeship opportunities.
