Inspired Shamanic Practice:
The Essentials of Effective & Principled Shamanic Healing

A Live Online Workshop
Taught by Narrye Caldwell

Nov. 19 & 20, 1:00-4:30 pacific time

Tuition: $150 (FSS members $140)

An effective shamanic healing practice depends on a combination of factors, including authentic and rigorous training in methods and direct experience with clients. As a spiritual healing method, the pragmatic aspects of the profession may be easily overlooked, and yet can make the difference between a valuable experience and a profoundly healing one from the client’s viewpoint.

A well-designed container for your healing practice that supports your clients and inspires you, can considerably enhance the effectiveness of your work. This training is appropriate for those beginning a shamanic practice who want advice on what issues to consider and how to proceed, as well as for seasoned healers looking to dialogue with other practitioners and to deepen their own work.

Purpose of the workshop:
To help you develop an ethical, effective shamanic practice that has integrity and is based in respect for all beings;

To offer you guidelines and ways of deciding for yourself regarding ethical issues – such as whether there is permission to do shamanic healing work in a specific situation – rather than “one size fits all” rules or answers;

To increase the professionalism of the practice by helping you create a supportive “container” that enhances your practice, including appropriate boundaries, safety, and freedom to practice within that container.

What will be covered: Ethical issues such as permission, talking with and screening potential clients, what to do before and after a session; brief legal considerations (not legal advice*); practicing with integrity and respect; and some pragmatic aspects of an effective shamanic practice.

This experiential online training is offered via Zoom video conferencing, which is free to individual users. Participants will see and hear each other and interact in pairs and small groups, as well as in the full circle. All students must participate with audio and video.
