“The Three-Year Program has changed my life on a cellular level. It has been the best experience of my life!”

Originated by Michael Harner and based upon his decades of research and experimentation, this course is the most advanced training in shamanism and shamanic healing offered by The Foundation for Shamanic Studies. It is widely considered as unparalleled in the world. It involves intensive extended training in progressively higher levels of very advanced shamanism, including initiations into rare and little-known practices and principles.

“I love my life now. Since I’ve been doing this work, I have a deep sense of my purpose on this planet. That is not something I thought I would ever have. My life is deep, purposeful, profound and fun!”  ~Three Year Program Participant

In this residential program, the same group of participants meets for 12 days in three Novembers (2015, 2016, 2017) in Bali, Indonesia, with practical assignments between meetings. The program is devoted to advancing the participants’ knowledge and practice as far as possible during the three sessions. Enrollment is limited. Sessions are held at a retreat center; on-site lodging and meals will be arranged during registration.

PREREQUISITES: The FSS basic Way of the Shaman course, Shamanic Extraction Healing Training, and two other advanced FSS two-day workshops of your choice; or the Two-week Course (in US only). Those who successfully complete the Three-Year program are entitled to receive the Bronze Certificate of Completion, issued upon request by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. Please request information and an application by e-mail: info[at]  Each application will be evaluated individually by the Foundation Review Committee.
