Shamanism and Science – One Step from Building Bridges to Cooperation

26.06.2016 by Dr. Andreas Hirsch

Report from the FSSE-Conference at the Johannes Kepler University in June 2016

Shamanism and science – at first glance these represent two paths of knowledge that couldn't be more different. On second glance although not only inner commonalities of those two ways of looking at the world emerge, but also quite a few opportunities to build bridges, even to collaborate in a complementary way. Such an opportunity to ponder all things they share, was the conference "Shamanism and Science", which was realized by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies Europe in Linz. On 9th of June 2016 at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, experts from different areas of science met with practitioners of shamanism – all in all more that 165 participants from more than 10 countries and two continents.

New Three-Year Program

14.12.2015 by Mag. Roland Urban

In October 2016 the tenth European Three-year Program in Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing™ will start.
Originated by Michael Harner and based upon decades of research and experimentation, this course is the most advanced training in shamanism and shamanic healing offered by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. It is widely considered as unparalleled in the world. It involves intensive training in progressively higher levels of very advanced shamanism, including initiations into rare and little-known practices and principles.
Participants should be stable and reliable; furthermore it is expected that the learning will be implemented into regular shamanic practice.
In this residential program, the same group of participants meets for a week once a year for three years, with practical assignments between meetings. Enrollment is limited.
