Core Shamanism and the Foundation for Shamanic Studies

An Interview with Susan Mokelke

Susan Mokelke describes the work of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, which anthropologist Michael Harner founded with his wife, Sandra Harner. As its President, Susan works to bring the core shamanic practices Michael developed from his extensive travels and research to people interested in finding their connection to spiritual dimensions. The resulting access to one's compassionate helping spirits provides wisdom and guidance for those who seek to be of service to the world.

This interview is part of The Way of the Psychonaut documentary series, which explores the life and work of Stanislav Grof, Czech-born psychiatrist and psychedelic psychotherapy pioneer. Stan's quest for knowledge and insights into the healing power of non-ordinary states of consciousness, influenced the discipline of psychology and profoundly changed many individual lives. One of those transformed by Stan is filmmaker Susan Hess Logeais.
