Long Term Training Programmes
Three Year Programme
The Three Year Programme of Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing™ was developed through decades of research and is widely considered unparalleled in the world. Michael Harner himself called it his life’s work. It involves intensive extended training in progressively higher levels of very advanced shamanism, including personal initiations and rare and little-known practices and principles.
A selected and closed group meets for one week of intensive shamanic work each year for three consecutive years. Participants need to be persistent and stable. The insights and learnings should be put into shamanic practice.
