"It is wonderful to be part of the Foundation's dedicated team. The Foundation for Shamanic Studies has had enormous impact on our world, helping to connect people all over the world with powerful sources of compassion and wisdom. Many indigenous traditions have been preserved or are reawakening and our technological world has a greater appreciation for their value. The core shamanic teachings brought to us by Michael Harner are fundamental and timeless. By learning the practice of shamanism, people are having the experience of the oneness of all things, knowledge that has tremendous potential to heal our world. I am honored and delighted to be part of helping FSS move into the future with the same high standards and depth that have been the Foundation's trademarks."
