Upcoming Basic Workshops in Core Shamanism

Michael Harner's
THE WAY OF THE SHAMAN®: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing

September 28-29, 2019
Workshop is 9-5 both days and held at the University of Victoria
Early bird price is $275, or $325 if paid after end of day Thursday, September 5th, 2019

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.

Christobel’s students say:
"One of the best things I've ever done. She was a perfect guide. Her knowledge was huge, she was kind and generous, and I trusted her completely."
"Thank you for such a wonderful and life changing weekend!" 



Advanced Workshops

Michael Harner's

March 23-24, 2019
Workshop is 9-5 both days and held at the University of Victoria
Early bird price is $275, or $325 if paid after end of day Thursday, February 28th, 2019

Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.

Note: Successful completion of this workshop is one of the prerequisites to take FSS' Power Soul Retrieval training.

PREREQUISITES: the FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman®, with an authorized FSS Faculty Member.

Christobel’s students say:

"Beautiful, insightful, empowering."
