Shamanic Divination Training (FSS Advanced Workshop)

Led by: Nan Moss

One of the classic tasks of the shaman is to journey into nonordinary reality in order to obtain answers to questions, both at the request of others and for oneself. Participants in the workshop have the opportunity to engage in divination journeys for each other as well as for themselves and to gain experience in using various time-tested shamanic divination techniques. In the shamanic search to become persons of knowledge, they learn, as shamans have from time immemorial, how to converse with plant and animal spirits, how to learn about the use of quartz crystals, and how to seek and receive revelatory knowledge from visionary sources.

Prerequisite: FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman with an authorized Foundation Faculty member.

Intro to Weather Shamanism Levels I & II

LEVEL I: WEATHER SHAMANISM

A Shamanic Path of Discovery, Personal Growth, Meaning of Life and Global Healing.

A form of spiritual ecology – a call to those who care about where our world may be heading, and who sincerely wish to safeguard the health of our planet.

A look at our culture’s relationship with weather – including our own – and a critical opportunity to expand our world-view beyond the confines of our mainstream perspectives.

An invitation to resurrect the venerable and respected task of the shaman to ensure good relations among the living communities of humans, beings of nature, and the local spirits of our home realm, all my relations.

May we whisper it to the winds.

LEVEL II: WEATHER IN THE MIDDLE WORLD

A deepening of our spiritual understanding of the Middle World and our relationship with the spirits of weather.

We begin to explore the connection between spirit and form, the whirlwind of chaos and order, and where we fit into that dance of cocreation. For this we need to know more about ourselves, and the True Human Being within us.

In Level II our aim is to approach weather shamanism with a high degree of awareness. This quality of deep attention, and full-embodied respect is essential for relating with Middle World spirits and powers.

It is the “knowing” path of direct experience.

The Way of the Shaman®: The Shamanic Journey, Power and Healing (FSS Basic Workshop)

Led by: Nan Moss

Originated by Michael Harner, this is the basic workshop of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies and is the prerequisite for all Foundation workshops and training courses.

During this experiential workshop, participants are introduced 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.Particular emphasis is put 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 movement techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities and connections with Nature. Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as work on personal problem solving. They are also provided with methods for journeying to discover and study with their own individual spiritual teachers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet.

Advanced Shamanic Healing Practice (FSS Advanced Workshop)

This two-day workshop is designed to provide to students with advanced FSS training, the opportunity for hands-on healing practice using multiple core shamanic methods.

The first day includes a review and practice of these primary methods: extraction healing, power animal retrieval, psychopomp work, and power soul retrieval. General parameters of a shamanic healing session as well as important ethical considerations will be discussed.

On day two, participants will have the opportunity to offer a complete shamanic healing session for another workshop participant. Afterward there will be group Q & A and discussion focused on clarifying the methodologies and addressing issues that arise during the healing sessions.

This training provides students the opportunity to “put it all together” by applying multiple core shamanic healing methods in a solo session for another participant. This is also a rare chance to exchange information and discuss shamanic healing with other advanced practitioners.

Those who are beginning a shamanic healing practice, as well as seasoned practitioners seeking to increase their proficiency, can benefit from this hands-on training.
