The Shamanic Worldview: Everything is Alive™

The shamanic worldview underpins the ethical and effective practice of shamanism. Experiential knowledge of this worldview leads to a profound awareness of the sacred nature of our world and an awakening of compassion, resulting in a deep desire to relieve pain and suffering and restore balance and harmony.

Using journeying and experiential shamanic methods, in this online workshop you will have the opportunity to personally explore and experience the fundamental aspects of the shaman's worldview: Everything is alive and has spirit; unity with the totality of nature; independent spirituality of the shaman; and the implications of these principles related to effective and ethical shamanic healing and divination.

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

What Participants Say
"This workshop is amazing. I am so grateful that FSS is doing these workshops for us. FSS has expanded my experience of life in so many ways, in so many worlds, on so many levels."

"I really enjoyed this workshop. I liked the way I could enjoy the teachings from the comfort of my home, rather than being rushed and exhausted from travelling and preparing to be away from home when I attend a workshop. I found the breakout sessions more intimate, somehow, as it was really face-to-face with a partner."

"I felt we were an intimate group. Zoom works really well and I can take courses that are usually very expensive for me to attend due to flying, accommodations, etc."
