Foundation for Shamanic Studies


The Foundation for Shamanic Studies offers courses in shamanism and shamanic healing for practitioners. The foundation’s teachings are based on universal or near-universal truths, rather than cultural-specific beliefs.

Since 1979, the center has been training individuals based on the work of Michael Harner, an anthropologist who helped to bring Shamanism to the West after years of study and practice. Training courses are offered in locations around the world several times per year. Upon completion of a course, participants receive a certification and may move on to the next level of training. Members of the site receive a discount on items for sale in the online bookstore, including books and audio meditation aides.
