One Year Together

The same group of participants will work together for one year. You will develop a general knowledge of a variety of shamanic healing techniques and skills and an in-depth knowledge of the shamanic journeying technique. You will receive nearly 100 hours - 12 days - of intensive training spread over 5 weekends.

Your Journey

Discover and learn how to use the shamanic journey for many purposes, to work with your power animals and spirit helpers. Discover how to use the technique to help you in your daily life or with creative projects and to do healing work with others.  The basic method of the shamanic journey is a form of meditation using drumming where you learn to soul travel, commune with ‘non-ordinary reality’ and compassionate healing spirits for the purpose of receiving guidance, information and healing. Scientific studies show that repetitive drumming alters brain waves patterns in a way that is comparable to deep sleep and deep meditative states. In this states, the journeyer obtains information and healing visions which have direct application to ‘ordinary’ reality.


You will be supported in discovering your own medicine and gifts and apply it to help others and yourself.


Deepen your connection with life and experience healings that bring fundamental shifts and align you with your higher purpose. Leaning the shamanic path fosters a sacred way of living life in harmony with Nature and the Earth.


After completing the training, you will receive a certificate in shamanic healing from The Medicine Circle as an acknowledgement that you have fulfilled the requirements and attended all sessions, completed your 20 cases studies and handed-in your case study reports.

Course Topics

The 1 Year Program in Shamanic Healing is about connecting to the unseen reality where people can meet and interact with healing, compassionate spirit helpers to help restore balance in themselves, others and the environment. This is what the essence of shamanism is - it's not only personal growth but also a holistic approach to all aspects of everyday life. Walking the path of the shaman is a process of re-empowerment, self-healing and a path of knowledge where a person learns to work with spirit helpers to effect desired results for healing and restoring balance and living in harmony with all of creation.
