Shamanism 101

September 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm



Where can I start learning about shamanism?

Which course should I sign up for? There’s so many choices now.

I feel called to learn more about healing but I don’t know exactly what that means for me.

Can modern Western people be shamans? Am I one? How do you tell the real ones from the fakers?

If these questions have crossed your mind, join me for Shamanism 101, a five-part course and intimate conversation. With weekly Zoom gatherings and supportive, exploratory emails PLUS bonus resources, you’ll have a solid foundation to take with you— into a full shamanic healing course, into your existing work and spiritual practice, or simply as a stand-alone experience.

Though not everyone is called to be a healer, many of us are called, as Yoruba elder Yeye Teish says, “to recover our indigenous mind.” We’re craving an experience of indigeneity, of reconnection. This connection serves both for our personal well-being and our ability to heal what’s missing in our world today. When we rediscover our deep and abiding relationships to Nature, our ancestors, and traditional ideas, we mend the rifts and heal the wounds that have harmed us all for generations. We become the light we seek.

If you’re curious about what shamanism holds for you, we’d love to have you join the circle for rich discussion, transformative practices, and supportive community.


This isn’t a training in “how to be a shaman”: it’s about context, history, and an exploration of shamanism’s relevance to us as modern people.

It’s the course I wish I had taken before I committed to years of trainings.


Topics we’ll explore together include:

~What is a shaman? Who are the “real” shamans?

~Shamanism and social justice: cultural appropriation and what to ask when you sign up for a training.

~The energy body: chakras, trauma, healing, and perception. How our reality is created, and how to change it.

~Ritual, ceremony, sacred space, and rites of passage. How and why to make a ceremony for yourself.  

~Tools and power-phernalia: altars, medicine bundles, rattles, feathers, and more

~Spells, consent, and protection: energy “hygiene.” 

~Shamanic journeying, power animals and allies, personal practices for insight and guidance


You’ll also receive

~A resource list with my favorite books, videos, and other educational tools to continue your study

~A discounted private healing session with me

~A recorded mp3 drumming track for your own journeys

~Email support between live sessions (which will be recorded)

~ A supportive and curious community of like-minded seekers
