Discover the specific wisdom your compassionate ancestors hold for you to help you navigate these difficult times — from personal challenges to planetary healing.
Access guidance from helping spirits and learn shamanic ceremonies to help heal family, community & societal wounds.
Shamanism is the world’s oldest spiritual practice — and we need it now more than ever...
This ancient wisdom brings the focus back to our humanity and spirituality at a time when much of the world doesn’t seem to value these parts of life....
Between our health concerns, financial woes, jam-packed schedules, relationship struggles, a profound sense of isolation, climate change, and so much more...
It’s clear we’ve become increasingly disconnected from the wisdom that can help us most.
Fortunately, people all over the world are waking up to what our ancestors have been trying to give us... wisdom “breadcrumbs” for how to survive the times we’re living in — right now — in our personal lives, in our communities, and on the planet.
We often rush past these hidden realities in our daily lives and miss opportunities for the exact guidance and healing we’re seeking — and a powerful sense of love, connection, and guidance... that’s always available to us.
Compassionate spirits in invisible realms are ready to offer their guidance and healing on behalf of ALL of life on Earth — including you and the details of your life.
Through the practice of shamanic journeying — entering into an altered state of consciousness and traveling outside of time into hidden, non-ordinary realms — you can access this wisdom, and do your part to restore harmony and balance between humankind and the forces of nature.
You can also step into the role of a shamanic practitioner and journey for others and perform healing ceremonies for friends, loved ones, clients, your community, and the planet.
A shaman is a man or woman who has the ability to travel into hidden realms. He or she interacts directly with helping spirits to address the spiritual aspect of illness, perform soul retrievals, and remove spiritual blockages...
These practices are at the heart of shamanism — the most ancient spiritual practice known to humankind, dating back over 100,000 years.
Shamanism also teaches us that:
- Everything that exists is alive and has a spirit
- A web of life connects all of life — and the spirit that lives in all things
- Any belief that we’re separate from other life forms — including the Earth, stars, wind, etc. — is purely an illusion
Now you can explore the foundations of shamanic journeying as you bring it into your own life. You’ll explore surprisingly simple practices for accessing helping spirits — for YOUR healing, and the healing of our world...
As you’ll discover, shamanism is a system of direct revelation. All shamans might describe experiences differently — and the ways YOU see and interpret these experiences are what make them beautiful...
Receive Guidance & Training From One of Shamanism’s Most Respected Teachers
In a powerful new program with Sandra Ingerman, you’ll explore how shamanic journeying cultivates a rich inner landscape as you confidently step into exciting new possibilities for your life.
As you master entering into deep inner states, you can unlock more joy, self-empowerment, and appreciation for your life.
You can also discover how to walk the path of Spirit — no longer distracted by what your ego is pushing you towards — so you can experience what gives your life true meaning.

- How to welcome and work with helping spirits
- Self-care when practicing shamanic journeying — for yourself and with others
- What to do when doubt sets in — for example, if you’re convinced you don’t “see” anything when journeying, or you’re starting to think you’re just making it all up
- The true meaning of divination as it relates to shamanic journeying
- The purpose of drums, rattles, whistling, sticks, bells, didgeridoos, click sticks, and chanting — in shamanic journeying
- The healing effects of shamanic journeying on human brain waves
- How shamanic journeying can give you a new perspective on climate change — and provide you with ceremonies you can perform for planetary healing
- Why your helpings spirits will be giving you an individualized lesson plan — and doing a personal dance with you
- How to approach the practice so you become a vessel of universal love and light
- How to step away from your ordinary thoughts and burdens to enter a field of energy beyond doubt, seeing from your heart instead of through the eyes of ego
- How to trust the spirit world — and feel safe and held in love within your practice
- How to rely on seeing through your heart, like shamans of the past, and stepping more into our unseen senses of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience
- A powerful guided journey to meet your favorite nature being — whether it be animal, bird, reptile, insect, plant, or tree... you’ll learn about each others’ lives and become good friends
- And so much more...
As Sandra shares, shamanic journeying unlocks your ability to understand the root causes of emotional and physical illness (both in yourself and others) and to heal those imbalances at a spiritual level.
Through shamanic journeying, you can gain access to a team of compassionate helping spirits — devoted to your healing, growth, and evolution, who can provide you with advanced knowledge about how to navigate important areas of your life — from career to love to fulfilling your greatest purpose.
You can also access a direct connection to your ancestors, who offer blessings and guidance for your daily life... and cultivate new capacities — from courage to compassion — empowered by your helping spirit allies.
A letter from Sandra:
Did you know that the word shaman comes from the Tungus tribe in Siberia, and it means “spiritual healer, one who knows, or one who sees in the dark”?
A shaman is a man or woman who uses the ability to see “with the strong eye” or “with the heart” to travel into hidden realms.
The shaman also divines information for the community. Shamans act as healers, doctors, priests and priestesses, psychotherapists, mystics, and storytellers.
Shamans perform a variety of ceremonies. They officiate marriages, for example, and also lead ceremonies to help people:
- Welcome children into the world
- Transition to a good place at the time of death
- Mourn the death of loved ones
- Mark certain life transitions — including moving from childhood into adulthood
One of the major ceremonies a shaman performs is called a shamanic journey, when they move into an altered state of consciousness and travel outside of time into the hidden realms that many term non-ordinary, and are parallel to the “real universe” we reside in.
Shamans typically use some form of percussion, especially drumming or rattling, to go into an altered state, which allows the free soul of the shaman to journey into invisible worlds.
When you’re in an ordinary state of consciousness, your brain waves are in a beta state. When the shaman or shamanic practitioner listens to a rhythmic or monotonous drum beat, the brain waves slow down — first to an alpha state, which is a light, meditative state of consciousness, and then into a deeper state called a theta state....
And that’s the state that allows the shaman’s free soul to journey into the invisible worlds and gain access to helping spirits.
These helping spirits work with the shaman to bring healing to individuals, the community, and the environment. The helping spirits are also consulted with when information is needed...
I’ve trained over 10,000 people how to journey, and I’ve never met anyone who couldn’t journey if they kept trying! If you feel shamanism is the right path for you and keep up the practice over time, you’ll find your own doorway into the non-ordinary realms...
Through your work with your helping spirits, you’ll discover parts of yourself that will amaze you — as we often feel so small, and disconnected from our inner light and the power of our own spiritual nature.
You’ll discover a richness and beautiful textures in your inner landscape that you've been unaware of...
We are multidimensional beings that have the innate ability to journey into the transcendent dimensions of reality to gather guidance, healing energies for ourselves, our loved ones, clients, our communities and all of life, and the planet. We have the ability to join in cooperation and mutual love and respect with Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. It is time for us to establish a relationship of love and honor with nature that goes both ways. We honor that which gives us life and we are honored in return.
Shamans have been carrying healing energies from outside of time into this dimension of reality for tens of thousands of years.
This is not a time to lose hope. Let’s keep hope alive!
Join me in this powerful foundational training and learn how to apply this timeless shamanic wisdom to every area of your life — and to our collective experience here on Earth.

Can You Practice Shamanism and Keep to Your Christian Faith?
Video Dialogue between Sandra Ingerman and Karen Furr

In this powerful dialogue, Sandra, who’s been teaching shamanism internationally for close to 40 years, affirms that there is no conflict between shamanism and Christianity. In fact, she once gave a keynote lecture for 300 Catholic priests and nuns on how to bring shamanism into the Catholic healthcare system.
Karen Furr, a former Catholic nun who’s now an ordained priest in the Independent Catholic Movement and a practitioner of alternative healing through shamanism and reiki, describes how she reconciles the practice of shamanism while being a practicing Catholic.
