Resources for Training - Appendix

Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality - Michael Harner 2013

Resources for Training

If you wish to compare your own experiences by using the information in Appendices A and B, I suggest you use the simultaneous-narration method, described on this page, and a high-quality shamanic journey drumming recording. They are available online in digitally remastered CD and MP3 download formats from the Foundation (see contact information below).

To go farther, and if you are new to core shamanism, I highly recommend the Foundation’s two-day “Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman,” which will introduce you to experiencing both the Upper and Lower Worlds and to getting help and seeking healing. The workshop is required preparation for more advanced Foundation courses that deal with all three worlds, such as the “Two-Week Shamanic Healing Intensive,” the “Three-Year Program of Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing,” and many others. All the Foundation’s workshops and courses are taught by a carefully selected and trained faculty with years of experience in shamanic healing and other aspects of shamanism.

“The Way of the Shaman” workshop is offered in English throughout the United States and in the following other countries: Canada (also in French in Quebec), the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. It has long been offered in other languages in other countries, starting with my 1978 teaching in Germany. You can find more information on the Foundation’s website:
