Further-Steps in Therapeutic Shamanism
After completing one of the college’s First-Steps courses, and ideally at least one of the Next-Steps courses (although having done a Next-Steps course is not essential), the Further-Steps courses continue the exploration of Therapeutic Shamanism and take people’s practice to new levels and into new areas.
These courses include topics such as exploring the shamanic Upper-World, shamanic spirituality and meditation practices, the ‘cycle of life’ (sometimes referred to as the “medicine wheel”), a shamanic exploration of the chakras and the body’s other energy systems, a shamanic view on death and dying, plant spirit medicine, shamanism and healthy boundaries, and much more.
Like the courses that precede them, the Further-Steps are usually arranged into one or two online sessions a week, with exercises to practice at home. Courses vary in length, depending on the topic being covered, and can be taken in any order.
Future Further-Steps courses will include:
- Mother, Father, Lover: Healing Our Mother and Father Wounds and Our Relationship With the Masculine and Feminine Archetypes
- Shamanic Protection and Healthy Boundaries
- Exploring the Middle-World
- Spirits of Place and Land
- Time Travel: Healing Ancestral, Family, and Future Wounds
- Plant Spirit Medicine
- Sea Shamanism
- Bird Shamanism
- The Tree of Life (sometimes called “The Totem Pole”): Shamanism, the Chakras, and the Human Body
- Soul Retrieval and the Fort Holder: Shamanic Soul Retrieval
- Inner Tribe Work: Shamanism, Internal Family Systems, and Parts-Of-Self Therapy
- Adulthood: A Shamanic Initiation

Participants will of course have to have an internet-enabled device (computer, tablet or smartphone) and wi-fi access to take part. The platform we use is Zoom meetings – help will be available for getting set up if needed.
Shamanic work can be of great benefit with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues. However, shamanic work does require a reasonable degree of mental robustness and groundedness, and emotional resilience. As such, like meditation and other similar practices, it can be contra-indicated in mental health issues such as psychosis, mania, severe depression, or disassociative disorders. So, if you have any mental health issues (current or historical) which you feel may impact on your ability to journey safely, then please do discuss this with the relevant course tutor prior to booking on the course. Any discussion will, of course, be treated confidentially.
