Core shamanism consists of the universal, near-universal, and common features of shamanism, together with journeys to other worlds, that shamans use to enter a non-ordinary reality for problem solving, well-being, and healing. Susan Mokelke leads the participants in a series of experiential exercises to learn the fundamental methods for successful shamanic journeying including the use of classic shamanic drumming to access the shamanic state of consciousness to receive answers to important life questions and to do healing work. This workshop is a prerequisite for all advanced workshops and training courses given by faculty members of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
Susan Mokelke, JD, is the president of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. She has co-taught and trained extensively with Michael Harner and leads the FSS faculty.
