Diploma Programme

Shaman PathwaysThe Diploma offers you the opportunity to acquire the skills, experience and knowledge you need to practice as a confident, effective shaman healer. Our Shaman Studies programme will prepare you to practice professionally as a shaman bodywork practitioner, allowing you to set your own private healing practice.

It is a 2 year distance learning programme based on 24 monthly modules of study. Students are allocated a personal tutor to supervise their learning during the course.

The Diploma is a comprehensive, easy to follow academic and practical study of shaman techniques and is designed for those wishing to undertake a more in-depth training in the shamanic healing arts.

Each month students receive course notes for the module and also details of meditations they are required to do. Students are required to submit and complete a lesson review, practical assignment and essay per module. Monthly support is provided through a one and half hour monthly telephone review with your course tutor.

Students are also required to attend two weekend courses each year, where they have the opportunity to see and participate in practical demonstrations of shaman healing treatments and techniques. There will be lots of hands-on experiences in the classroom including live case studies.

The Year One syllabus consists of 12 modules with the emphasis on enabling the student to understand the human versus shamanic spiritual connection, and on healing the Self before committing to working with others. Students will become familiar and proficient in a number of key Shaman Initiations during this first year.

The Year Two syllabus also consists of 12 modules with the emphasis on applying these initiations in a clinic environment. The student will learn a number of Shaman Ceremonies which form the basis of most shaman healing treatments. The emphasis is on mastering clinical skills, professional conduct, client care and confident articulation of shaman therapies in a professional healing environment.

A Certificate of Completion is provided in all individual modules, upon successful completion of assignment and essay. Certificate Year One (Shaman Initiations) and Certificate Year Two (Ceremonies) are provided on successful completion of each year of study.
