       Shamans are often called “seers” or “people who know” in their tribal languages, because they are involved in a system of knowledge based on firsthand experience. Shamanism is not a belief system. It’s based on personal experiments conducted to heal and to get information. In fact, if shamans don’t get results, they will no longer be used by people in their tribe. People ask me, “How do you know if somebody’s a shaman?” I say, “It’s simple. Do they journey to other worlds? And do they perform miracles?” 

—Michael Harner, author, The Way of the Shaman, and Cave & Cosmos

Core Shamanism is the universal or near-universal principles and practices of shamanism not bound to any specific cultural group or perspective, as originated, researched, and developed by Michael Harner. As the modern world overwhelmingly lost its shamanic knowledge centuries ago due to religious and political oppression, the programs in Core Shamanism from The Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) are particularly intended for modern persons to reacquire access to their rightful spiritual heritage through quality workshops and training courses. Training in core shamanism includes teaching students to alter their consciousness through classic shamanic non-drug techniques such as repetitive drumming so that they can discover their own hidden spiritual resources, transform their lives, and learn how to help others. FILM Trailer about the work of the FSS: http://www.shamanism.org/Michael-Harner-Way-of-the-Shaman-movie.php

The Way of the Shaman basic course: 

During the Basic experiential workshop, participants are introduced to core shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods of the shaman to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.  Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. They are also provided with methods for journeying to meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet. Two days; 9am-6pm each day.

  ADVANCED COURSES (The Way of the Shaman basic course is prerequisite; if you have already taken the basic, you needn’t repeat it and can go directly to these advanced courses)

Shamanic Extraction Healing Training:  

Participants are initiated into the extraction method of healing, including how to see, sense, and remove localized illness and pain connected to spiritual factors. This is an important part of shamanic healing training. You will also learn how shamanic practitioners can work in partnership to increase the effectiveness of this work. The Extraction Healing Training workshop is designed exclusively for people who want to bring shamanic healing work into their practice with others. It is not designed for people looking for personal healing.

Shamanism, Dying & Beyond: 

Participants explore dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, and helping a person to cross over or transition into transcendent realms (classic psychopomp work).

Power Soul Retrieval:

Soul Retrieval is one of the most powerful shamanic healing practices, and so very needed in our world today. We’ll learn to return portions of the soul that may have moved away or dissociated as a result of trauma or any situation in which we were unprepared to feel the associated emotions. Shamans believe that soul loss is a common source of illness, depression, and chronic fatigue, as well as a variety of mental and emotional disorders.  In this advanced course, we will learn how to find and retrieve these portions for clients in a healing session.  **Both Extraction Healing and the Shamanism, Dying & Beyond advanced courses are prerequisite.

Kevin Turner (著) Sky Shamans of Mongolia


Sky Shamans cover & back


シャーマニズムに関する本というと、徹底的に第三者として観察して自身では儀式に関わらない学者が書いたものか、シャーマン自身が自分の体験を記述したものになりがちですが、この本はそのどちらの要素も多少持っている点がユニークです。著者は自分自身シャーマンですが、第三者としての視線でモンゴルのシャーマニズムを取材し、実際に儀式を体験して主観と客観、両方の観点から冷静な視点を得ています。この本は失われつつあったモンゴルのシャーマニズムがいかに復興を果たしつつあるかの、興味深いドキュメンタリーとしても読めます。昔ながらの伝統文化が現代社会でいかに共存できるかについて、また著者自身が儀式を通じて得たスピリチュアルな体験について、またシャーマニズム全般の世界観を一般的な読者にわかりやすく解説する本として、どの観点からも面白く読めます。僕はこれまでに何冊もの関連書籍を読んできましたが、この本のようにバランスを得ているものはこれまで見たことがありません。シャーマニズムの優れた紹介にとどまらず、この本の読書体験そのものがスピリチュアルな経験をもたらして、世界観を広げてくれます。 ~ I. K.

Book Description: Part travelogue, part experiential spiritual memoir, Kevin Turner takes us to visit with authentic shamans in the steppes and urban centers of modern-day Mongolia. Along the way, the author, a practicing shaman himself, tells of spontaneous medical diagnoses, all-night shamanic ceremonies, and miraculous healings, all welling from a rich culture in which divination, soul-retrieval, and spirit depossession are a part of everyday life. Shamanism, described in the 1950s by Mircea Eliade as “archaic techniques of ecstasy,” is alive and well in Mongolia as a means of accessing “nonordinary realities” and the spirit world. After centuries of suppression by Buddhist and then Communist political powers, it is exploding in popularity in Mongolia. Turner gives compelling accounts of healings and rituals he witnesses among Darkhad, Buryat, and Khalkh shamans, and goes on to provide us with his insights into a universal shamanism, principles that lie at the heart of shamanic traditions worldwide. This astounding, inspiring book will appeal to shamans and shamanic therapists, students of Mongolian culture and comparative religion, and fans of off-grid travel memoirs.

English reviews:

Sky Shamans of Mongolia is a fascinating and serious work that is an important contribution to shamanic knowledge. A must–read for anyone wishing to learn about Mongolian shamanism and to understand its place in the world.”—Michael Harner, PhD, author of The Way of the Shaman and Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality

“As one who has worked and taught alongside Mongolian shamans, I find this book by Kevin Turner has illuminated much about this stunningly powerful and mysterious form of shamanism. He shares what he has learned firsthand, and he frames it in a rich context of multiple dimensions of shamanism, including neuroscience, and rolls it into a vision of shamanism as personal evolution with a vision of the future. Read this book!”—C. Michael Smith, PhD, clinical psychologist and author of Jung and Shamanism in Dialogue and Psychotherapy and the Sacred

“Kevin Turner’s marvelous fieldwork describes shamanism and shamanic knowledge as it really is in Mongolia.”—L. Chuluunbaatar, PhD, professor of linguistics at National University of Mongolia

“Kevin Turner’s Sky Shamans of Mongolia covers a subject few authors have investigated in depth. In this wonderful and well-written text, Turner explores shamanism in the kind of detail only an initiate could communicate.  Not only does Turner speak to the cultural role of shamans, but he reveals the experiential cosmos in which they journey for the benefit of community.  I recommend this book for anyone interested in Asian shamanism.”—Larry Peters, PhD, author of Tibetan Shamanism: Ecstasy and Healing

“Turner’s unique qualifications make this book an immensely valuable resource for Westerners interested in Mongolian shamanism, or shamanism wherever practiced. An American living in Asia, speaking several Asian tongues, himself a shamanic practitioner, Turner possesses not only the gift of understanding but the gift of putting that understanding into clear, readable language. Unlike academics attempting to describe shamanism from the outside, Turner knows it from the inside, and the same familiarity that gained him the confidence of the shamans enables him to be a sure-footed interpreter for the reader.”—Frank DeMarco, author of The Sphere and the Hologram

“A fascinating and compelling account of contemporary shamanic practice, based on firsthand experience and simultaneously an exercise in religious anthropology and cultural ethnography, this work explores a sacred tradition whose deep impact on the West is gradually being rediscovered and interpreted anew.”—Paul Bishop, PhD, author of The Archaic: The Past in the Present

“Kevin Turner is an explorer of the inner worlds, a researcher of the deep meaning of life. His book, in addition to being an anthropological text, is also a travel story, full of surprises, between blue skies and green landscapes without boundaries, the songs and costumes of the shamans, their miraculous healings and visions, and the sterile discussions among academic scholars described with fine irony. [A] trip to real but extraordinary experiences.”—Guido Ferrari, journalist and director of Tao: The Watercourse Way at Wu Yi Mountain

Sky Shamans of Mongolia is an invaluable guide for anyone interested in understanding one of the world’s oldest shamanic traditions with an abundance of detail to satisfy a curious reader or a serious student of global shamanism.”—Robert Thé, medical anthropologist

“Kevin Turner brings a rare combination of skills and tools to the table, which in Mongolia opened doors and hearts normally closed to Western researchers of shamanism. He is a linguist, a teacher, and a practicing shaman. As a Western shaman, he had to endure much skeptical probing before being accepted by the Mongolian shamanic community and invited to their gatherings and healing ceremonies. Writing Sky Shamans of Mongolia from the perspective of a shamanic practitioner himself, Kevin Turner offers his readers a rare in-depth overview of the history and current practices of Mongolian shamanism, which after a period of persecution and decline is experiencing a revival of astonishing proportions.”—Sabine Lucas, PhD, Jungian analyst, and author of Past Life Dreamwork

Sky Shamans of Mongolia provides authoritative and extensive coverage of a little-known tradition. The writer’s personal encounters enliven the account, furthered by his position as a practitioner of ‘universal shamanism’ which enables him to enjoy privileged access. There are moments when the reader is so drawn in by the firsthand descriptions that it feels as if one were actually there.”—John Dougill, author of Shinto Shrines: A Guide to the Sacred Sites of Japan’s Ancient Religion

“The dramatic resurgence of shamanism in Mongolia, as detailed in this beautifully written study, is testament to the indomitable nature of the soul’s healing powers. Kevin Turner gives us both a window into shamanism as a worldwide phenomenon and a detailed account of ancestral Mongolian shamanic practices. Most interesting of all, Sky Shamans is that rare glimpse into the shamanic psyche, transmitted through these accounts.”—Jeremiah Abrams, author of Meeting the Shadow: The Hidden Power of the Dark Side of Human Nature

“An enjoyably written introduction to Mongolian and Inner Asian shamanisms that is based in experience and filled with knowledge. Recommended.”—Jeremy Narby, author of Shamans through Time and The Cosmic Serpent

“Author Kevin Turner has brought something of great importance to those seeking to understand and practice shamanism: a valuable contribution to the understanding and practice of shamanism in the West and a richly rewarding, fascinating study of Mongolian shamanism. The author’s adventures in the land of the shamans brings much food for thought and great insight.”—Nicholas Breeze Wood, editor of Sacred Hoop magazine

コア・シャーマニズム Core Shamanism

コア(核心の)・シャーマニズムとは、ハーナー博士が研究、考案、発展させた、地球上の シャーマニズムにほぼ共通した普遍的な体系とその実践のことで、彼の膨大な現地調査や異文化間のリサーチ及び実践の積み重ねが基になっています。いかなる 特定の文化組織や思想とも結びつくものではありません。シャーマニックな知識の大方は何世紀も前に甚だしく失われてしまっているという現状から、コア・ シャーマニズムのプログラムには、現代人が良質のワークショップやトレーニングを通して、人類の正当な精神的遺産との繋がりを取り戻せる様にとの意図が込 められています。トレーニングでは、意識を変性させていく際にドラムの音やラトリング(ガラガラ)の様な伝統的手法を使い、参加者がどのように自らの精神 的源泉を発見し、人生を変容させ、他者の助けとなっていけるかということを伝えていきます。コア・シャーマニズムは特定の先住民族の儀式等を研修するので はなく、信念体系に縛られずに霊的啓示を自ら直接受け取っていくスピリチュアル的自律を目指しています。財団の全てのトレーニングプログラムは、本物の シャーマニック体験と実用的な結果を導く為に、丁寧にデザインされ十分に検証されています。

      Shamans are often called “seers” or “people who know” in their tribal languages, because they are involved in a system of knowledge based on firsthand experience. Shamanism is not a belief system. It’s based on personal experiments conducted to heal and to get information. In fact, if shamans don’t get results, they will no longer be used by people in their tribe. People ask me, “How do you know if somebody’s a shaman?” I say, “It’s simple. Do they journey to other worlds? And do they perform miracles?”      —Michael Harner, author, The Way of the Shaman

この2日間の体験的ベーシックワークショップでは、参加者はシャーマニズムの普遍的基本体 系であるコア(核心の)・シャーマニズムに触れ、問題解決やヒーリングの為に非日常的リアリティへと入っていく。ここで特に重要なのが古典的なシャーマン の旅、ジャーニーである。これは人類が隠された世界を探究する為に使った非常に先見的な手法であり、この手法なしには、隠された世界は主に神話や夢を通し てのみしか知り得ないものであったろう。参加者はシャーマンの旅をする手ほどきを受け、ドラムの音やその他のテクニックの助けを得ながらシャーマン的意識 状態に入っていく。そして大自然と繋がることや眠っているスピリチュアルな能力を目覚めさせる体験をしていく。またシャーマンの旅の中での気付きについて 参加者同士で話し合ったり、シャーマンの直感的予見やヒーリングの実習もする。更に、非日常的リアリティにて旅をする中で自分のスピリットヘルパーと出会 い、そこから学んでいくというシャーマンの実践に欠かせない古典的な手順も伝授される。このように参加者は、この旅をどのように自らのスピリチュアルなパ ワーや健康を回復させるのに役立てていくか、どのようにしてシャーマニズムを現代生活の中に活かし、自分や他人を癒したり、この惑星を癒すことに役立てて いくかを学ぶ。 マイケル・ハーナーによるコースデザイン、 講師:ケヴィン・ターナー

皆様にジャーニーサークルを効果的に開催する事に関しての以下の記事を日本語でお届け出来るのを嬉しく思います。ジャーニーサークルは自律的な会であり、有志による独立した集まりです。発足に際しての私からのアドバイスとして、まずシャーマニズム研究財団(FSS)のベーシックコース「シャーマンへの道」を修了した人達で始めるのが良いと思います。そしてサークルをテクニックを教える場ではなく、コースで学んだ事を練習する場所として活用する事です。 例えば、上級コースを修了した人はコースで学んだ技法(例えば摘出テクニック等)をサークルで練習することは出来ますが、上級コースを受けていない人は上級テクニック自体をサークルで練習することは出来ません(クライアントになる事はできます)。このようにコースで学んだテクニックを練習したい方はご連絡ください。あなたの地域の他のサークル参加希望メンバーとコンタクトできるようアレンジします。  Download Journey MP3 here

“The shaman’s arduous routines and the ceaseless demands of their communities have led some Western observers to wonder why anyone would want to shamanize…. What the outsiders miss, not having experiential knowledge of shamanism, is the great spiritual joy and ecstasy one commonly experiences working with the spirits and helping others who are suffering or in pain.”

Harner Shamanic Counseling Follow the fantastic shamanic journeys of one woman as she explores otherworldly realms, encountering power animals and teachers who provide her with life-changing guidance and healing. Ema bravely decides to expand her self-knowledge by embarking on a spiritual adventure with author Sandra Harner initially leading her through sessions of Harner Shamanic Counseling. By the end of her sessions with Harner, Ema has discovered her own innate ability to find answers to pervasive personal questions, overcome inhibitory fears, and acquire self-confidence and wisdom. Ema’s sixty-four journeys are shared with us here, thanks to taped recordings of her simultaneous narration. Ema’s Odyssey: Shamanism for Healing and Spiritual Knowledge (release date January 7, 2014)


Cave and Cosmos continues to receive enthusiastic reviews from many sources,including Parabola (magazine Fall 2013 and parabola.org online), Watkins Mind Body Spirit, and New Dawn magazine.

“Michael Harner, more so than Carlos Castaneda, Gordon Wasson, Terence McKenna, Alan Watts, Abbie Hoffman or Timothy Leary, has perhaps done more than any other to enlighten the West on the truly global nature of shamanism — a cultural and spiritual heritage that seems to unify every archaic and indigenous culture around the world.”

— Marc Star, New Dawn (July – August 2013).

Cave and Cosmos by Michael Harner

The German edition has just been released. French, Italian, Norwegian, and Slovenian editions are coming soon. Cave and Cosmos may now be purchased in paperback directly through the Foundation, as well as through online and local bookstores.

Articles and Information


The work of Aboriginal traditional healers called ngangkari is becoming increasingly recognized in mainstream health in Australia. Read the article by Emma Sleath, from abc.net.au. There is also a book, which includes first person narratives of over 20 ngangkari, Traditional Healers of Central Australia.


Manduhai Buyandelger, author of Tragic Spirits and an anthropologist from MIT, finds that after Soviet domination, a rebirth of shamanism helped Mongolia rewrite its own history. Read the article by Peter Dizikes, MIT News Office. Submitted by Michael Oddo, FSS Three Year graduate, Columbus, Ohio.


View a video with a 1-2 minute description of soul retrieval done by curanderos for “susto” (fright). This is part of a TED talk, “Connecting Modern Medicine to Traditional Healing,” by Cheo Torres, a professor at University of New Mexico, who runs a cross-cultural shamanic event there every summer.

In the practice, in the presence of family, friends and neighbors for support, they sweep the patient’s body with rue, basil and rosemary three times a week for one month on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, asking the patient’s spirit to return. Cheo says it worked to cure his cousin, suffering with PTSD from Viet Nam. View the video (for the soul retrieval segment, start watching the video at about 5:20 minutes in). Submitted by Ellen Winner, FSS Three-Year graduate and faculty member, Boulder, Colorado.

NOTE: Each issue we plan to post on the website or provide a link to an article or other media with useful information about shamanism or shamanic healing. Check the Articles section for several varied perspectives on shamanism and shamanic healing, many from past issues of Shamanism and the Shamanism Annual, the Foundation’s scholarly journal – one of the exclusive benefits of the Circle of the Foundation.

Healing Words



Psychiatrist Dr. Rieko Hagihara reports from Japan that respected Ainu Elder Grandma Saki has not only recovered from her illness but is even healthier and more powerful than she was before her illness. Grandma Saki collapsed while visiting Tokyo from Hokkaido last year, and she was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor. There was great concern among the Ainu community as she is one of the last Ainu myth-song keepers, and she had no students interested in inheriting her tradition. The Ainu in her region of Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan, prayed continuously for her recovery, and her eldest son even flew to Tokyo to bring her an Ainu spirit carving. Nevertheless, she showed no improvement, and spent months back and forth from death’s door.

Dr. Hagihara invited FSS Director for Asia Kevin Turner to accompany her to the hospital to visit Saki on November 4, after completing a Way of the Shaman basic course in Tokyo. Her worried family led them into the hospice room.

Kevin explains:

“Saki was very weak and only partially conscious when we arrived. She was in a room with several other patients of advanced age, few of whom were expected to survive. I sensed ancestor spirits about, perhaps waiting on her departure. I was inspired to offer a healing to make the eventual transition easier. Saki gave her approval. There, in midst of the doctors, nurses, and other patients, I shook my rattles, sang an invocation song, and performed a gentle extraction. Divining no further course of action, I felt compelled to simply pass healing power to her. An unfamiliar cool and gentle rush of power flowed from behind, through my arms, and into her shoulders. Saki gently swooned into a restful sleep.”

Two days later Grandma Saki’s relatives telephoned Dr. Hagihara to report that upon awakening the next morning, Saki exploded at a nurse, I’m Ainu and I will not be defeated! Saki then told her family that she had dreamt of her (deceased) husband chanting sutras, and of fighting against the shamo (the Ainu derogatory word for the Japanese). A new specialist doctor arrived shortly later, and found her condition to be completely benign. Saki dramatically improved throughout the day, and was released from the hospital the following day, much to the surprise of all. Grandma Saki has no memory of the healing, nor even of Dr. Hagihara and Kevin visiting, but gave her blessing to report this. Her doctors can only attribute her recovery to initial misdiagnosis.

In March this year, Dr. Hagihara visited Grandma Saki in Hokkaido with an Okinawan medium (kaminchu). The kaminchu divined, Saki’s mission is to teach the next generation how to live. Saki now has five young students that she teaches at monthly meetings with elders (fuchi). She calls her helping and protective spirits regularly, and always gives prayers to the mountain spirits before searching for mushrooms. She explains to plants that she needs them for food and medicine and asks permission before cutting. Dr. Hagihara learned to weave spirit offering baskets from her, and is learning to make preserved Ainu foods. She also gave Grandma Saki some blue corn from the Hopi in Arizona, which she was able to sprout and grow herself in Japan (see photo above).

It remains unclear what led to the Ainu elder’s miraculous recovery, but it is Kevin’s opinion that Ainu Helping Spirits wish Grandma Saki to stay in this world until she passes her knowledge to the next generation, and that he was probably only a coincidental intermediary for the healing to occur.

Internationally renowned anthropologist Michael Harner pioneered the return of shamanism and the shamanic journey to contemporary life. In 1979, Michael and Sandra Harner established the Center for Shamanic Studies, the precursor to the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, which took over the function of the Center in the mid-eighties. FSS is dedicated to the preservation, study, and teaching of shamanic knowledge for the benefit of the Planet and its inhabitants. Join the thousands of people each year who take the Foundation’s rigorous training in Core Shamanism, which consists of the universal, near-universal, and common features of shamanism, together with journeys to other worlds, a distinguishing feature of shamanism. Originated, researched, and developed by Michael Harner, the principles of core shamanism are not bound to any specific cultural group or perspective.  The workshops and training programs have been carefully developed by Dr. Harner and thoroughly tested to provide an authentic shamanic experience and practical results.

ソウル・リトリーバルはシャーマニックヒーリングの中で最も強力なものの一つです。人は何かを体験した時に、それによって沸き起こった感情を感じる準備がないと、感情を感じずにその部分の魂を置き去りにしてしまう事があります。これが魂の失われた部分であり、これを取り戻して本人に再統合するのがソウルリトリーバルです。シャーマン達はこの魂の欠落が病気や抑鬱、慢性疲労、様々な精神的または感情的な病のよくある原因だと信じています。 この上級コースではヒーリングセッションの中でクライアントの魂の失われた部分をどの様に見つけて本人に再統合するのかを学びます。シャーマンの摘出治療コースとシャーマニズム死ぬ事とその先の2つの上級コースを修了している事が条件です。

The Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Healing, and Power

この2日間の体験的ベーシッ クワークショップでは、参加者はシャーマニズムの普遍的基本体系であるコア(核心の)・シャーマニズムに触れ、問題解決やヒーリングの為に非日常的リアリ ティへと入っていく。ここで特に重要なのが古典的なシャーマンの旅、ジャーニーである。これは人類が隠された世界を探究する為に使った非常に先見的な手法 であり、この手法なしには、隠された世界は主に神話や夢を通してのみしか知り得ないものであったろう。参加者はシャーマンの旅をする手ほどきを受け、ドラ ムの音やその他のテクニックの助けを得ながらシャーマン的意識状態に入っていく。そして大自然と繋がることや眠っているスピリチュアルな能力を目覚めさせ る体験をしていく。またシャーマンの旅の中での気付きについて参加者同士で話し合ったり、シャーマンの直感的予見やヒーリングの実習もする。更に、非日常 的リアリティにて旅をする中で自分のスピリットヘルパーと出会い、そこから学んでいくというシャーマンの実践に欠かせない古典的な手順も伝授される。この ように参加者は、この旅をどのように自らのスピリチュアルなパワーや健康を回復させるのに役立てていくか、どのようにしてシャーマニズムを現代生活の中に 活かし、自分や他人を癒したり、この惑星を癒すことに役立てていくかを学ぶ。 マイケル・ハーナーによるコースデザイン、 講師:ケヴィン・ターナー
