Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.

Workshop times are Saturday 9:00 am - 6:00 pm and Sunday, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm.


You must complete Michael Harner’s The Way of the Shaman® (The Basic Workshop) with an authorized FSS Faculty Member before attending any advanced workshop.
