Paul David has graduated as engineer and worked in the research field.
He developed an interest on phenomena that exist ´aside´ the sciences. After a relatively short period of time shamanism became his primary focus of attention – just because shamanism seemed to be down to real life and practically relevant. After various ´preparatory ways´ he completed the basic workshop in 1993. He has been trained as shamanic counselor, and it registered as ´Certified Shamanic Counselor in 1997. Parallel to his training with the FSS Paul David has learned from shamans in Peru, Siberia, and Mexico.
In 2000 he became a member of the facults of the FSS. Since then he has been implementing workshops in Nordrhein-Westfalen und Rheinland-Pfalz.
