BASIC WORKSHOP

Michael Harner's
The Way of the Shaman®
Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing
The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism (Weekend)

During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal, near-universal, and common methods of the shaman to enter nonordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.

Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. They are also provided with methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in nonordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet.

WHAT TO BRING. Please bring a rattle or a drum if you have one. Wear comfortable clothing, warm socks, and bring a bandanna, cushion and/or blanket (if the sponsor does not provide cushions), a rough-surfaced rock approximately the size of a grapefruit (NOT a crystal), and a pen and notebook to record your journeys. (Electronic recording — audio, video, photographic — and the use of computers are not permitted during the workshop.)

Completion of this workshop with an authorized FSS Faculty Member qualifies participants to take more advanced FSS workshops. NOTE: You must complete all sessions of this workshop to qualify for further FSS training. Please arrange your schedule so that you can be present at all sessions for both days of the training.
