Michael Harner's
A Special Benefit for the Foundation for Shamanic Studies
San Francisco Bay Area
taught by Sandra Harner & Susan Mokelke
August 23-24, 2008
Working together intensively, we will dedicate ourselves to deepening our spiritual relationship with our living Earth.

From ancient times, shamans have worked with the spirits of nature for healing, survival, and knowledge. By learning from the plants and animals, from the rocks and mountains, from the winds and waters, and from the sun, moon, and stars, shamans helped their peoples live in harmony with the universe.

In a world now out of balance, the way of the shaman can teach how again to respect nature, our planet, and its inhabitants at a deep spiritual level. As our ancestors everywhere once knew, our survival depends on the survival of the other species. By working together intensively through shamanic journeys and other spiritual experiences, we will dedicate ourselves to working in both nonordinary and ordinary reality to restore and maintain a living Earth.

Prerequisite: The FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman, taught by FSS Faculty member.

The workshop will be held at Point Bonita Conference Center, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, surrounded by ocean beaches, rolling hills, and incomparable views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the rugged northern coastline.

About the Foundation for Shamanic Studies

Internationally renowned anthropologist Michael Harner pioneered the return of shamanism to contemporary life. In 1985, he founded the FSS to preserve, study, and transmit shamanic knowledge worldwide.

Join the thousands each year who take the Foundation's rigorous training in Core Shamanism, the near universal principles and practices of shamanism not bound to any specific cultural group or perspective.
