Three Year Program of Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing™


This course is already in session and is closed to new registration. Stay tuned for details on the next East Coast Three Year Program.

Led by: Nan Moss
Assisted by: Elaine Egidio

Originated by Michael Harner and based upon his decades of research and experimentation, this course is the most advanced training in shamanism and shamanic healing offered by the Foundation. It is widely considered as unparalleled in the world. It involves intensive extended training in progressively higher levels of very advanced shamanism, including initiations into rare and little-known practices and principles.

In this residential program, the same group of participants meets for a week twice a year (usually May and October) for three years, with practical assignments between meetings. There is also a summertime program that meets once a year for two weeks (two back-to-back sessions) over the span of three summers. The program is devoted to the objective of advancing the participants’ knowledge and practice as far as possible during the three years. Enrollment is limited. Sessions are held at a retreat center; on-site lodging and meals will be arranged during registration.
