Shamanic Lightworker Apprenticeship Training Programs ada41b7150e77d6b4ec3a1e2912917d5

Learn how to walk a balanced path towards self-empowerment, exploring core shamanism and healing techniques from around the globe. Our apprenticeships lead you towards a clearer, stronger version of you: an empowered and integrated person whose soul and physical life is in harmony, whose very existence helps clear mass consciousness and improve the quality of all life on earth.

What is a shaman? A shaman is a person who is aware of the energetic flow and patterns of the universe, someone who acknowledges the spirit in everything, and works with that spirit and flow to shift the world. The word “shaman” is Siberian in origin, and means “(s)he who knows”. There have been shamans in every culture on Earth throughout the ages, people who can connect with Source, or Spirit, to heal and create balance in the world.

What is a lightworker? A lightworker is someone who works with the light for the highest good of all beings. Lightworkers believe in the interconnectedness of all things, all beings, and strive to create a more harmonious, light-based realm on Earth. “Light” shamanism focuses on techniques that can be used heal oneself and the community on multiple levels.


Lessons draw on a wide variety of traditions from around the globe, rather than any one specific cultural belief system. You learn to enter heightened states of awareness to meet your own guides and power animals, and learn to help others do the same. At the end of eleven months, you will receive a certificate noting your completion of the Elemental and Intermediate Shamanic Lightworker Training.

Your studies will include:
