Answer the Call   •   Claim Your Power.

In this course, we introduce the 60,000 year-old, earth-honoring tradition of shamanic practice to the modern world. You acquire forgotten knowledge, wisdom, and skills while exploring what it truly means to be human. In this course you will:

  • Discover Your Soul's Purpose 
  • Learn Powerful Healing Forms 
  • Become More Emotionally Resilient
  • Engage with Spirit through Earth's Oldest Tradition
  • Transform Your Life with Ceremony and Ritual
  • Begin Walking with Confidence in the World

We introduce the following essential shamanic skills:

Shamanic Journeying

The essential skill of the shamanic individual. Learn to work with spirit guides and power animals and get tips for using journeying to bring hidden information into your conscious life.

Shamanic Breath Work

Managing our state of being not only makes shamanic practice more effective, it makes virtually all aspects of life more enjoyable. We learn how to be shamanic anytime, anywhere.

Shamanic Cosmology

Study the physical and energetic structure of the universe. What are the Upper, Middle, and Lower Worlds? How do shamans dream the world into being? What is the true nature of time? 

Working with Helping Spirits, Totems, and Power Animals

Living a shamanic life means creating and nurturing relationships with entities in non-ordinary reality. How do you do this? Is it safe? Is it real? How can I use this skill in my life? 

Personal Energy Self Care and Maintenance

We live in a universe built literally out of energy. As an energetic being, what skills are necessary to live a healhy and happy life? How do I protect myself from unhealthy energies?  

Using Personal Shrines, Altars, and Ceremonies

What is the difference between shrines and altars? How are they used in a shamanic life? What personal ceremonies can enrich my life and improve my connection to spirit?

Personal Spiritual Protections

Just as you can become physically ill by catching a virus, you can become energetically ill without a properly functioning energetic immune system. You learn about and are offered protective shielding.

Gathering and Using Shamanic Tools

Drums. Rattles. Bells. Whistles. Pendulums, Dowsing Rods, Stones and other objects found in nature. Shamanic tools, when used in the name of Spirit, become magical implements. You learn about tools and begin using tools for yourself.

Working with Nature at the Level of Spirit

Shamans believe that intelligence is present everywhere and in everything. How do you tap in to this omnipresent intelligence? How do you work with this larger community of consciousness? 

We teach Andean Shamanism with influences from Wicca, Tibetan Buddhism, and other major traditions. It is truly a global tradition and all of our curriculum is optimized for effectiveness in the modern world.

Who Should Take This Course?

This course is designed for those looking to quickly become competent in the foundational teachings and skills of shamanism. These are the skills that are the birthright of all humans but have become forgotten, secret knowledge in the modern world. No prior knowledge or experience with shamanism, or any other spiritual tradition, is required.

Upon completion, this course provides a solid foundation for those who wish to practice shamanism for themselves and bring forward the richness of a shamanic life into their own. Further study is required for those who wish to practice for others or become shamanic healers or teachers. We offer a full curriculum for those who have these goals.

The skills taught in this course are the prerequisites for further study with us. Students interested in our intermediate or advanced courses must demonstrate mastery of the topics in this course. This is an ideal introductory or refresher course.
