Shamanism, death and dying.


A two weekend course, although the weekends can also be taken individually.


Dates: 2018 - dates to be confirmed. Please email me if you are interested.


Venue: Llandudno, North Wales.


Tutor: Paul Francis. Other Foundation-Course tutors will be assisting at times.


N.B. This course is an ‘advanced’ foundation course, and as such is strictly only for students who already have a good grounding and experience with a good number of the other foundation courses.


Being a nature-based spirituality, the notion of everything having it’s time and it’s season is central to shamanic practice. Shamans often say one needs to live with death ‘at one’s shoulder’. This helps us not only prepare for our own death, but to live life with the knowledge that all things are impermanent; to live the present moment more fully, and to not cling on when it is time for things to change.


On this course we explore a shamanic model of what happens when we die. We will look at preparing for our own death, and look at how to use this knowledge to help us live more fully. In doing this, as shamans say, death can become one of our greatest allies and teachers.


We will also touch on how to help those who have died, but where the journey of death has become stuck. Known as psychopomping, this process of helping the dead to ‘move on’ is an important part of shamanic work.

In addition, we will look at death in a much wider sense than just the death of the physical body. We will explore death as endings: of periods in our life; relationships that need to be released; of old identities; of habits and patterns; of any thing that no longer serves us and that is holding us back. We will look at the process of letting go and moving on (and explore our resistance to doing this). In doing this we will journey to meet Death itself, as an archetypal energy, and build a relationship with it. In doing so, we will learn how Death, far from being something to fear, can become our greatest ally, and potentially the source of great shamanic power.

“These courses were life changing for me. I was a little daunted to be honest – death is a bit of a taboo in modern society! Over the course of the two weekends my views on both life and death were completely transformed. I am so pleased I faced my initial fears, rather than living a life time of running from them, as so many people do. Paul has structured these course to really get to the heart of the key issues around death in our culture, as well as imparting ancient knowledge from the shamanic perspective. No stone was left unturned, and yet I felt completely safe and haven’t laughed so much in ages! These courses have helped me to make big decisions about what I want out of the life that the earth has given me. I am no longer scared to die and I am no longer scared to live.” L.M. , Cumbria.

Shamans say we need to learn to live with Death on our shoulder.

Shamans believe that we are a ‘composite’ being, made of different bits. Simply put, we can think of these as being: Spirit, Authentic Soul, Ego and Body. On death, different things happen to these different aspects of ourselves; each has it’s own journey to make. We will look at how we may prepare for this (inevitable) event in our own life.


We will also touch on how to help those who have died, but where the journey of death has become stuck. Known as psychopomping, this process of helping the dead to ‘move on’ is an important part of shamanic work.

In addition, we will look at death in a much wider sense than just the death of the physical body.
