The Foundation for Shamanic Studies (top of page)

Started in 1979 as the Center for Shamanic Studies, the Foundation for Shamanic Studies presents the world’s foremost training programs in shamanism and shamanic healing.  They are based on the pioneering work of anthropologist Michael Harner, who brought shamanism to contemporary life in the West after extensive field and cross-cultural investigation, experimentation, and personal practice.

The Hoffman Institute Foundation (top of page)

Emotional learning that occurred early in our lives largely shapes our adult experiences.   Negative aspects of this conditioning can produce unwanted outcomes and self-defeating behaviors in our adult lives.  Hoffman teaches how to release and resolve the persistent negative feelings of being unloved and unlovable.   The ultimate aim  is to help reach forgiveness and acceptance.  Whether you choose the Hoffman Process as a rite of passage, a journey of self-discovery or a way of laying to rest the ghosts of your childhood, there is no doubt you will experience a future very different from your past.

Ian Watson Consulting and Seminars (top of page)

The basis of Ian's work is self-healing and personal transformation, and he starts from the premise that you already have within you everything you need to live a healthy, creative, fulfilling and authentic life. His role as facilitator is to remind you of what you already know and to assist you in aligning yourself with the source of your own inner wisdom and self-healing capabilities.

Ian's work is quite insightful, informative, and sensitively respectful.  I personally recommend his individual consulting services AND his many very reasonably priced seminar recordings.   Click here to listen to samples of his seminars.   If you decide to make a purchase, please be sure to do it through this "listen to samples" link. 

Jason-Aeric Huenecke (top of page)

Jason-Aeric’s mastery of two different and profound healing arts was possible because he began studying at such an early age. Mystically inclined as a child, he loved nature, art, and creative play and read everything he could find regarding mythology, world religions, and spiritual traditions.  Jason-Aeric’s personal healing journey and spiritual development are intimately connected with his practice of healing, spirituality, and transformation.
