Shamanic Training in Creativity™

Led by: Nan Moss

Creativity is so ancient that it is at once fundamental and complex, even a driving force in our lives. Shamanism brings a fresh approach to Westerners for cultivating their creative potential. In this workshop, based on years of research, participants will have the opportunity to enhance their creativity through the practice of shamanic methods. Selected historical and anthropological examples will illustrate connections between shamanism and creative abilities, and a variety of specific shamanic exercises will be taught that participants can apply to their personal lives. (Article: “Shamanism and Creativity” by Sandra Harner.)

Prerequisite: FSS Basic Workshop: The Way of the Shaman®, Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing.

13 FSS Continuing Education (CE) Credits available

Power Soul Retrieval Training™ (FSS Advanced Workshop)

Led by: Nan Moss

Learning shamanism is not just a matter of acquiring methods, but also of increasing spiritual power and knowing how to use it. From the shamanic point of view, people who are not spiritually “power-filled” are prone to illness, accidents, and misfortune. Anyone who has had a traumatic experience may lose a portion of their soul, of their spiritual essence. There are also other reasons this may occur. In this workshop, participants will learn about soul loss and soul retrieval from a shamanic perspective. There will be a particular emphasis on the importance of shamanic power to do successful soul retrieval. Participants will also learn how to re-empower a client’s soul after it has been returned so that the client is once again spiritually power-filled, leading to greater health and well-being. This soul retrieval training is based on worldwide core principles and methods. It does not require Western psychological perspectives and practices.

PREREQUISITE FSS WORKSHOPS: Because effective soul retrieval practice is based in shamanic power, which comes from strong connections with helping spirits and advanced practice in shamanism, participation in this program requires these prerequisites: 1. Shamanic Extraction Healing AND Shamanism, Dying, and Beyond; OR 2. Completion of the Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive (offered annually on both coasts of the USA).
