Shamanism for Inspired Local & Global Change™

Ammonite close up

In these challenging times, shamanic work, when combined with ordinary reality knowledge and action, can make an immense contribution toward effective long-term solutions for community and global problems. Shamanic divination—asking the fully compassionate spirits for answers to questions—is particularly helpful in providing inspired and workable ways to address complex issues in ordinary reality.

This workshop offers practical methods to gain and apply wisdom from the spirits to resolve persistent problems facing humanity, our precious Earth, and its inhabitants.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Practice applying shamanic divination/journeying methods to the problem-solving process
  • Use shamanic divination to gain insight into real-world issues you care about
  • Examine ethical guidelines and issues of permission
  • Look at some of the personal benefits of spirit-inspired community action
  • Explore possible ways to ethically bring the power of the compassionate spirits to our world

NOTE: Participants must be able to successfully journey to contact at least one helping spirit from the Upper or Lower Worlds.

Training in shamanic methods to address specific issues

If you would like to join with others interested in applying shamanism and the power of the spirits to find ordinary reality ways to help, focused on a specific issue, please scroll down to the calendar listings. In the Instructor column, look for a workshop that displays "Focus on [subject]." For example, for Ukraine, look for "Focus on Ukraine." (Contact instructor for details.) We expect to add more focused trainings soon. If no focus is listed, the participants will each choose their own subject when learning the method.

What Participants Say
"This is a very interesting workshop that challenges your ability to find solutions in OR and NOR. It gave me a wonderful opportunity to explore my vision and my attitudes. ... Creating a world or community view project was a struggle for me in the beginning but with help of the teacher and the spirits I developed something quite unexpected. This project gave me focus, grounding, and purpose. A very refreshing change in this time of uncertainty and anxiety."

"Enjoyed the process of journeying with purpose to refine questions to form a plan of action that was tangible and do-able. The best part is the practice of consulting with the spirits so that there is clearer decision-making based on direct revelation rather than ego based action/reaction."

"The content was not entirely what I expected, but was a lot more than what I expected! I liked the personal aspect of working on self-improvement, or any personal problem we had -- so the workshop incorporated "change" in all its aspects."

"I loved all the journeying! It made a huge difference for me, as I got more comfortable and I cannot think of the right words to express this...but more thankful, joyful, confident."

"This is the only place ever, to get enough academic and accurate knowledge in regards to shamanic work. It answered lots of questions I always had in my mind. FSS is one of the organizations that tremendously helps humanity to fulfill its destiny."
