The Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) was incorporated in 1985 as a non-profit educational organisation dedicated to the preservation, study and teaching of shamanic knowledge. Led by its founder Dr. Michael Harner (author of The Way of the Shaman) and in the UK by Simon Buxton (Founder of The Sacred Trust), it is now generally recognised as the foremost institution in the world engaged in the revival and teaching of practical shamanism and its application to health and other problems of daily life. Its field staff of fifteen works with tribal shamans from the Amazon to Siberia, and its international faculty members teach in twenty-three countries. Read more...
This year we shall be offering the introductory weekend workshop The Way of the Shaman on three occasions as well as a further eight advanced FSS courses, including Harner Shamanic Counselling Training and the new workshop Shamanic Training in Creativity.
Please note: The Way of the Shaman workshop is the prerequisite for all advanced FSS workshops.
Simon Buxton introduces participants to core-shamanism – the universal and near-universal basic methods of the shaman to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving, well being and healing. During this experiential weekend workshop, particular emphasis will be placed on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by mankind to explore the hidden universe; otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.
Participants will be initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and movement techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities and connections with Nature.
Participants are provided with methods for journeying to discover their own individual spiritual helpers and teachers in non-ordinary reality and to study with them, a classic step in shamanic practice. They will also learn how the journey can be utilised to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied to contemporary daily life to help oneself, others and the Earth. Practices include comparisons by participants of their discoveries and experiences, as well as introductory training in shamanic healing and divination.
