The Foundation for Shamanic Studies

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies was founded by internationally renowned anthropologist Michael Harner.

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies has a three-fold mission:

  • to study shamanism,
  • to teach shamanism, and
  • to preserve shamanism

for the welfare of the Planet Earth and its inhabitants.

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies has built a reputation of consistency and dependability by providing reliable training in Core Shamanism to interested learners worldwide.

Shamanism? What are you talking about

Over tens of thousands of years, our ancient ancestors all over the world discovered how to maximize human abilities of mind and spirit for healing and problem-solving. The remarkable system of methods they developed is today known as “shamanism,” a term that comes from a Siberian tribal word for its practitioners: “shaman” (pronounced SHAH-mahn).

Shamans are a type of medicine man or woman especially distinguished by the use of journeys to hidden worlds otherwise mainly known through myth, dream, and near-death experiences. Most commonly they do this by entering an altered state of consciousness using monotonous percussion sound. (definition from The Foundation for Shamanic Studies)
