Home of Shamanism 101
A school where you can study shamanism, train in shamanism,
and learn shamanic spirituality and healing, while being personally mentored
on our Earth's most ancient spiritual journey...


Shamanism 101 is the leading online school for the in-depth, world-wide core of comprehensive shamanic education. Whether you are training and preparing for personal practice, for for your service to others, or even for preparation for teaching, you have found the school that makes the most sense financially, philosophically, and in terms of an unquestionably comprehensive education.

From basic journeying to soul retrieval, from shamanic metaphysics to ethics, and from divination to shamanic psychopomp, you will be guided down the essential paths of growth and discovery that shamans have forever navigated across the globe and throughout history. Because shamanism in one form or another has - even if forgotten - once thrived somewhere in everyone's unique ancestry and region of the world, and if you have a deep instinct that there is more to shamanism than adopting some culturally unfamiliar path, you are correct.

Shamanism with integrity has always been self-generated and can never be copied from some pre-formatted orthodoxy, especially from a foreign culture. Shamanism arises naturally through the self and soil of one’s own land and person. If you instinctively know this, you understand. Whether you live anywhere from the USSR to the USA, Canada to South America, and Africa to Asia, our efforts at Shamanism 101 are for you to discover your own path: the shamanism that is your own.

Welcome to Shamanism 101, your access to the worldwide core of the ancient shamanic paths to personal spiritual wellness and the recovery of wholeness. Join us in what is also the benchmark 
training program of shamanic practices, and for some, for teaching shamanism. For all levels of training, we invite you to a comprehensive education in shamanic spiritual wellness and healing that is simultaneously your unforgettable journey of personal spiritual growth and recovery.

We love shamanism!

Yes, this is us. We are the teachers here at Shamanism 101. Personal mentoring in shamanism is unusual in today's world, however here, one of us who will guide you through the crucial personal growth that can only happen when you are followed closely by someone who knows the nuances of what is ahead. Let us assure you, we have walked the path! Grounded on many thousands of years of worldwide shamanic practices, our curriculum and your experiences in these courses will assure your personally mentored, solid and comprehensive education.

Through the course's thoroughly explained reading and encouraging audio lectures, regular assignments of classic shamanic activities and experiences, and amidst the back-and-forth scurry of emails between deeply engaged students and their equally motivated teachers, the opportunity to learn shamanism online with Shamanism 101 has shown itself over and over to be today's surprising return through technology to the historically respected, traditional approach of one-on-one shamanic mentoring.

These courses are designed to meet the three primary levels of interest: Basic shamanic practice for personal growth and discovery, practitioner training to learn to work with others, and shamanic teacher training. In all classes, course materials include readings, audio lectures, regular class assignments and Mentor support to ensure a continuing, solid foundation in shamanism.

Level 1, Learn to Journey: Basic Shamanic Practice, Personal Growth and Discovery

When your desire is to establish a personal shamanic practice for insight, well-being and spiritual growth, Level 1, guided by your own personal teacher, is the perfect match. Here you will learn the foundations of shamanism including core techniques such as learning to journey. You will explore the upper, middle and lower worlds, learn strong ethics and protocols, and meet your power animals, spirit helpers and teachers. You will learn rituals such as calling in the directions and sage cleansing, and throughout it all, follow your own path of shamanic inner-work to bring forth your true essence, and much more...

The first level of Shamanism 101 training puts students squarely on the shamanic path themselves, just as throughout prehistory, shamans had their students face their own initiations long before anyone even thought about working with others. The foundation of any good practitioner has been first, the regathering of one's own lost power. Before one is ready to help others in shamanism, one must find one's own full, true self.

Once this is done in Level One, a student is ready to learn how to work with others. This is where for those with a professional inclination, Shamanism 101 is also the benchmark program for certification in professional shamanic practice, which is the core of Levels Two and Three. Your competency as a practitioner is assured because your work is individually monitored by a closely observant teacher whose own competency has been amply demonstrated, and all of this within a school where the curriculum is unquestionably grounded and solid.

Level 2 and Level 3: Merging with Power and Soul Work: The Practitioner who Works with Others

For those who have a strong desire to establish a practice and provide skilled shamanic healing and divination, levels two and three are unequaled. Again, both levels Two and Three (basically intermediate and advanced) are personally mentored and carefully followed with training guidance by one of our teachers and advanced practitioners. From Dancing the special dance of one’s spirit helper to dance doctoring, from the extraction of a spiritual intrusion, to soul retrieval, and from the broadest awareness of how our clients might come to us, to the most ancient initiatory experiences of shamans throughout time, you will experience all of this and much, much more during what may be the larger part of a year of regular training.

For more information on what goes into these levels of training, take a look at the pages dedicated to these. We believe this training is truly the most comprehensive curriculum for education and preparation in shamanic practice that you can find. You will graduate knowing that you are extremely well prepared to work with others but as a most unusual and highly significant matter, we will also be able to certify you and your demonstrated abilities - not simply that you showed up for a class - at each level of training because we have monitored your progress every step of the way.

For more information on training at the intermediate Level 2: Merging With Power, follow this link.

For more information on working with others at the advanced
Level 3: Soul Work, follow this link.

Level 4: Teacher Training

Finally, for those who have successfully graduated and become certified in the first three levels of training, and for those whose ethics and expertise are reaching for excellence, a periodic training course that may last up to a year and a half takes a small cohort of exceptional practitioners into their full capability.

Essentially, Teacher Training doubles the self-discovery, development and preparation of what the student gathered through the first three levels. Every area that has already been studied is taken farther and deeper. Interestingly, although all areas of shamanic practice when first taught may expand one hugely, it still seems to be just the beginning. Teacher training provides one with a small group of close colleagues to return to every step along the path and really look closely and potentially move light years beyond what one had at some point, initially addressed in their education and growth.

Moreover, in learning to teach, one naturally studies and challenges their personal ways of interacting with students who are themselves, learning shamanism. We look closely at the different channels we have to interact, support, and help develop those who come to us to learn. Moreover, there is no better way of insuring that one truly knows their subject well than to face and respond to the questions and concerns that students invariably bring to us. Here is truly an education by fire. For those who are ready for it, the best way to really master a subject, is to have to teach it.

This is, as you can well imagine, the narrowest of paths, and exists as it always has been, for those who truly need to excel. We insist that those who teach must be this good.
 Again, because we are monitoring your development and capability every step of the way, you will become certified through us as a shamanic teacher at graduation.

In exchange for Teacher Training, you teach for us for at least this period of time and get paid for this after a fairly short initial training period.
