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.

PREREQUISITES: The FSS Basic Workshop: The Way of the Shaman® and either: 1. The FSS Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensiveor 2.

Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive™

Led by: Nan Moss
Assisted by: Elaine Egidio

Originated and directed by Michael Harner and based upon his decades of research and experimentation, this residential program in advanced core shamanism is described by former participants as “transformative,” “life-changing,” and “the most important spiritual experience of my life.”

A variety of advanced methods are practiced in this program, including extraction healing, power soul retrieval training, psychopomp work, divination, and work with the spirits of nature. There will also be work that is not included in FSS weekend workshops, such as selected advanced healing methods, the dream dance, explorations, and initiatory experiences. (This program does not duplicate Three-Year Program material nor include Shamanic Counseling Training.)

Prerequisite: the FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman®, with an authorized FSS Faculty Member. Applicants who complete this Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive will receive special consideration when applying for Three-Year Programs in Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing. Click here for special offers such as automatic acceptance to the Three Year Program for those completing an upcoming Two Week Shamanic Intensive.

The Two Week Intensive is not designed for people looking for personal healing.
