ADVANCED 5-DAY & LONGER WORKSHOPS
THREE-YEAR PROGRAM OF ADVANCED INITIATIONS IN SHAMANISM AND SHAMANIC HEALING™
"The Three-Year Program has changed my life on a cellular level. It has been the best experience of my life!"
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.
"I love my life now. Since I’ve been doing this work, I have a deep sense of my purpose on this planet. That is not something I thought I would ever have. My life is deep, purposeful, profound and fun!" -- Three Year Program Participant
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 (Note prerequisites have changed for Three-Year programs beginning after July 31, 2012): The FSS Basic Workshop: The Way of the Shaman® and either: 1.
