Living the Sacred Path

Advanced Practices in Shamanism for Personal Healing, Growth and Enjoyment

"Having completed our foundation course, many students want to continue their studies and receive the mentorship. Yet, they are not drawn to becoming a shamanic practitioner... Spirit is calling them nonetheless to deepen their self practice."

Shamanism for Self-Healing- Shamanism 101 (pre-requisite)

Living the Sacred Path is the continuation of the dedicated student’s growth from our foundation practices.  These students have demonstrated and excellence in shamanic self-practice and want to continue their studies.  However, they are not being called to become a shamanic practitioner.

This course requires successful graduation of our foundation course, Shamanism for Self-healing/ 101 in order to enroll.


Foundation Course Details

The mentor-student dialogue continues to be an invaluable cornerstone of this training.

Personal Mentor

Each student is assigned a private instructor who mentors and supports you every step of the way. Our teachers are all certified shamanic practitioners and certified practitioner trainers.  This is an essential aspect of our training...that you always have someone who you can turn to.  The Instructor also provides the push that you may need to look deeply and keep your fire burning.

Comprehensive Studies- 36 Units

Living the Sacred Path is a building and deepening process, each lesson carries profound healing and opening. We know that you are not just 'learning' techniques but you are developing and discovering your Self... a metamorphosis of sorts is happening, this takes time and focus...and Spirit's guidance.

24 - 36 months of Training

Running alongside our Practitioner's course, this course takes from two to three years to complete depending on your pacing and life's other plans. Basically it takes time to hone your skills, to develop your practice and this simply cannot be rushed. At the same time, we want you to complete your units in 2 or possibly 3 weeks each.

Online Training Flexibility

We offer the complete and mentored training all through the internet.  This allows you to study wherever you live.  Sometimes its not possible for you to leave home and travel to a training.  Here you get as close as we can to one-on-one mentoring.  And also receive the benefits of having a whole team of mentors from Shaman College holding the light.

Online Meetings

Over the course you will have the opportunity to meet privately with your teacher 3 times.  And we encourage you to join the optional, teacher-led group meetings so you can meet other students and learn from each others' questions and experiences.

"Anyone who embarks on this path has a deep love for nature, ritual and the helping spirits. They know that there is not a separation between their own personal work with the Spirits and the vibratory impact on the world all around them."

Living the Sacred Path takes the self-healing, true expression, and personal rituals more deeply into your life.

Merging, healing modailites and direct divination.

Throughout history, the essential shamanic practice of merging has traditionally been recognized as one of the most useful ways to learn from spirit helpers and integrate the power that is associated with them. Hence, much of this training is devoted to learning a breadth of divination and healing practices that rely on merging. Modalities such as human words, song, and even dance are experienced. By now, you are actually ready for advanced forms of divination and merging, including the initially daunting practice of direct divination. 

Personal projects, shamanic tools, drumming and rattling.

You will be mapping your psycho-spiritual realms and beginning to gather a personal book of practices and discoveries that you will be able to refer back to throughout the years ahead. As with all shamans throughout history, you will start creating and gathering important shamanic tools, such as a Siberian Eye Curtain and your Outfit/Medicine Bag, and you will learn to empower these. You will learn to journey simply with the use of a rattle, and then develop this to your drum. You learn how to contact the compassionate spirits who want to express themselves through you. 

Power Animal Necklaces, Working with Plants and Creating Rituals

You will be developing your daily and weekly connections with Spirit. Creativity is a natural part of this. You will find out how the Spirits and all of Nature want to be contacted and expressed through you. Your intimacy with your helping Spirits grows as you discover how these powers want to be honoured.  You will become adept at creating self-healing rituals and ceremonies to honour all of life. You will strengthen and integrate practices that empower you, ground you, and boost your power.

Ancient, important and traditionally tested shamanic initiations.

Time-honored and intentionally shrouded from view, these are experiences that are rarely, if ever spoken of openly. An initiatory experience is a sacred time for you. when your relationship with the spirit world is deepened and where self-understanding grows. We know that  initiations solidify the deeper understanding and provide a insight that is difficult to otherwise achieve, thus we are able to offer these to you as you go through this in-depth training. 

Shamanic Education about the types of healing that are available, knowledge empowers you.

This training does not cover some of the more advanced practitioner modalities.  However, you will become quite educated and aware of the techniques of Extraction and middle world work such Psychopomp.  These techniques are reserved for people that are going through the practitioner training because they naturally require a client. They are not self-healing techniques and even experienced practitioners seek out assistance from others when they need this type of healing. You will become aware of them and able to seek assistance from the necessary professionals should you find that you require this specific type of healing.
