Shamanic Apprentice Program
The Shamanic Apprentice Program of the Spirit Canoe School of Shamanism is a three-year course of study designed to support qualified participants in deepening their relationships with their helping spirits, and to continue their training in the primary core-shamanic healing techniques.
Prerequisites: To qualify for the Shamanic Apprentice Program, students must have completed the following Foundation for Shamanic Studies weekend workshops*:
The Way of the Shaman®
Shamanic Extraction Healing Training
Shamanism, Dying & Beyond
Power Soul Retrieval
During the first year, students will review and deepen their experience with the classic shamanic healing techniques of extraction healing, psychopomp healing and soul retrieval. Students will become well-versed in the ethical complexities involved in practicing shamanism in our culture, and will complete the year with an in-depth exploration of the many kinds of spirits who inhabit non-ordinary reality. The second year of the Shamanic Apprentice Program is the internship year, when students will begin healing sessions with clients, and receive bi-monthly mentoring in pairs to support their work. In the third year, students will receive advanced, individual mentoring, and complete the facilitator training for leading practice groups in the School of Shamanism, and drumming circles in the community.
*If you have had the Way of the Shaman® workshop, and at least one of the advanced workshops, but you have not done all three, please contact Robbie to talk further.
