A 7-Part Program
with Shamanic Teacher
Sandra Ingerman
New Live Training Starts
Tuesday, December 2, 2014

A powerful opportunity to develop your ability to use shamanic practices to access hidden dimensions, unseen allies and healing wisdom for your life and our world...

Be prepared to open your heart, expand your mind, experience the divinity within all life, and advance on your spiritual journey – all in a beautifully supportive community.

Imagine, for a moment, that you had the ability to understand the deeper roots of emotional and physical illness – both in yourself and others – and to heal those roots at a spiritual level.


Imagine you had access to a whole interior team of wise guides who are at your beck and call – who can provide you with advanced knowledge about how to navigate areas of your life, from career to love to fulfilling your greater purpose.

Imagine feeling directly connected to your ancestors, who are then able to pour their blessings into your daily life.

And imagine that you could ignite new virtues and capacities, from courageous power to profound compassion, through the empowerment of spirit allies – all for free.

The truth is, none of the above requires a real leap of imagination, for all of these capabilities are available now to each and every one of us!

The only barrier is that most of us have never been taught the practical shamanic tools that give us access to them – particularly the ability to access non-ordinary states of consciousness and travel in unseen realms for guidance, healing and wisdom.

As you learn these skills, your 3-dimensional perception takes on an added dimension of intuitive knowing and healing insight.

You begin to perceive through your heart and mind at the same time, receive information from other levels of reality, and experience a kind of communion with nature that dissolves your sense of separation.

You begin to open the doors of perception so that your five senses are more alive AND you are more open to synchronicity and subtle messages from the world around you.

As you do this, you become more embodied, whole and empowered, living with greater attunement to your body and the needs of those around you.

You become more sensitive and, at the same time, stronger and more able to hold your center. You awaken more fully to the sacred dimension and begin to live and breathe the spirit of love and beauty in your daily life.

It’s a wonderful picture, yes?

The Shamanic Science of the Soul


The truth is that all this and more is available to you as you learn to walk the shamanic path, the oldest and most widely practiced healing art on the planet. Modern medicine, as amazing as it can be, is a late arrival on the scene. Shamans had to develop ways of working with disease, disturbance and disharmony long before we had the scientific methods.

Indeed, what they cultivated through experimentation (and a lot of help from spirit allies), is a kind of complementary science of the soul that includes powerful understandings of how we get blocked and out of balance in our energy, power, hearts and souls.

Shamans evolved an understanding of energy, trauma, and disease that has been proven effective in treating major traumas, PTSD, addiction, depression, emotional disturbance and more.

And what’s truly remarkable is that indigenous shamans who were disconnected in space and time developed similar practices for gaining this information – which validates that the practices themselves are grounded in real insight into human consciousness and evolution.

This remarkable path to transformation has, in recent decades, become more available to sincere seekers, healers and explorers the world over. A combination of shamanic practitioners and social scientists have assembled an understanding of “core shamanism” that takes the essence of shamanic practices from across the globe and translates them into our modern lives.

These core skills are highly effective for creating deep healing, evolution and growth because they work at the root levels of your consciousness.

According to shamans, traumatic life events as basic as a childhood ridiculing or as devastating as the death of a loved one can cause your conscious awareness to withdraw from parts of your body and your life. This triggers a kind of “soul-loss” that create “holes” in your body, mind and soul that attract disease, misfortune and other issues.

Often when people say, “I’ve never been the same since...,” it is because they are referencing an event that led to a literal loss of energy and soul that needs to be reclaimed and healed before the surface symptoms can go away.

Shamanic journeying is explicitly designed to heal those wounds, restore your soul, and in the process, bring your life into a state of sacred wholeness.

Whether you are relatively healthy, happy and grounded or experiencing intense challenges, wounding or loss, shamanic methods offer you a pathway for self-healing, self-knowledge and self-growth that is empowering because it gives you the means to evolve on your own.


You learn to access your own sources of inner wisdom and healing intelligence, which helps you navigate the many challenges of life with greater perspective. Instead of feeling helpless, you feel more confident and capable in meeting those challenges.

You also gain access to a wide range of wise allies, from power animals to beloved ancestors to archetypal guides.

Perhaps even more importantly, shamanic practice is wonderful for connecting you to spiritual community through ceremonies that are healing, enlivening and just plain fun.

Embarking on Your Shamanic Journey

It can be challenging in the midst of a busy life, with no time to travel to a retreat center – much less a rainforest – to begin to access this vital skillset for your life and community.

That’s where the Shamanic Journeying for Healing and Guidance training comes in. It is a state-of-the-art virtual program on essential practices of shamanism that can help you access hidden dimensions and unseen allies and discover great wisdom and healing power for your life.

This 7-part program has been created to give you a step-by-step system of spiritual practice that is distilled from cultures around the world and delivered in a form that you can apply in the modern world. It is appropriate both for those who are new to the path and those who have been practicing for some time.

During the seven modules of the program, you will:

  • Learn the foundations for safe, effective and intentional journeying that you can apply for a lifetime.
  • Distinguish between different spirit allies and their expertise they can offer you for your path and work.
  • Understand why shamanism is relevant today, and how it can be bridged into modern-day culture to improve the quality of your life – emotionally, mentally and physically.
  • Learn the four categories of classical diagnosis (and treatments) for how shamans view emotional and physical illness
  • Leare the core elements of how to perform healing ceremonies.
  • Discover how to identify wounds that you might not be aware of and begin to heal them.
  • Gain greater clarity and insight into any number of life challenges – from medical problems, to family dynamics, to business struggles.
  • Learn how to transform the energy behind your thoughts so you are sending loving energies to yourself, your loved ones and into the world.
  • Understand how to use percussion to enter into non-ordinary journey states and to return safely.
  • Develop skills for journeying to “Upper,” “Middle” and “Lower” Worlds, and understand why you want to access one or the other.
  • Learn how to dismember blocking beliefs, judgements and disappointments.
  • Deepen relationships with different unseen allies – including some that may really surprise you! – who you can continue to access for advice, healing and support.
  • Understand shamanism from a non-dual perspective in which the unseen allies and dimensions are all seen as part of an indivisible unity.
  • Apply shamanic wisdom to living your daily life.

The Importance of an Expert Guide


When dealing with non-ordinary states of consciousness and hidden realities, it is especially important – and even essential – to have a skilled and trusted guide who can help you avoid the pitfalls and challenges that can arise in shamanic work.

There are rabbit holes you do not want to go down and energies and entities that can have less beneficial effects if you don’t know how to enter into shamanic journeys in a way that is both open-hearted AND well-protected at the same time.

There may be no single woman who has done more to bring shamanic wisdom and practices to a global audience than Sandra Ingerman. For more than 30 years, she has made it her lifework to bridge core shamanic principles and teachings to a global audience, training tens of thousands around the world in skills for their own lives and for working with clients.

She is the award-winning author of nine books, including Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self, and her soon to be released book, Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life.

She has developed a stellar reputation for integrity, love and deep support in addition to her scholarly brilliance and practical skills.

In short, you are in very safe and loving hands should you choose to enter this initiatory pathway with her as your guide.

A Sacred Virtual Community To Serve You

And, the truth is that while Sandra will be teaching, guiding and initiating the sacred community that gathers for this course – every participant is also a co-creator. The nature of co-created ritual is one where every person brings their full intention, love, consciousness and commitment into the space. And together, something happens that is much larger and more mysterious than when there is a single teacher lecturing to a group.


There is a larger, intelligent field that is created that leads to remarkable shifts, openings, healings and activations for participants – going beyond the one teacher model.

With shamanic journeying it is all about being an active participant rather than a passive “client” or “patient,” and thus, you will be active in practicing the skills and participating in co-creating the group field that will, in turn, offer profound benefits to everyone who joins in it together.

Imagine having hundreds of people working on your behalf to support your health, well-being and success...

That is exactly what Sandra will be creating!

Every single module of the program will have a powerful, co-created community ritual that focuses on healing, success, health and empowerment for yourself, as well as for the world.

Extensive experience has shown that physical presence is not required for healing and transformation to take place. Indeed, without the outer world logistics and distractions, and with the power of drumming, voice and prayer, remarkable fields of connection, community and intelligence can open up.

As you experience these fields, you will not only benefit from their direct transformational power but also gain insights into how you can activate similar fields with your loved ones and community.

That’s because, at the root, shamanic practices are not for the liberation of just one person but for the sacred healing of entire communities.

Your healing becomes the healing of those you love as you gain skill and experience in shamanic practice.

(December 16)


In this session, Sandra will share how connecting with the unseen forces and spiritual allies in nature can improve your health and well-being. She will teach you how to journey into the invisible realm of the “Middle World” to discover an element – earth, air, water or fire – that can be a healing ally for you.

During this module, you will:

(January 13)

This session will explore the shamanic teachings around the power of words and how the words we use create what we experience in our lives and in the world. Sandra will guide you in discovering the core beliefs blocking you from using your full creative potential and show you ways that you can start to work on releasing these beliefs.

In this session, you will:

  • Experience the support and love from your ancestral line.

  • Explore ways to be a bright light to transform the energy in your home, work place and surroundings.

Module 6:The Power of Initiation
(January 20)


Every change you go through in life involves a death. In shamanism, death is not seen as an end but is viewed as a transition. The transitions you go through are actually an initiation or rite of passage that lead us into a new stage of life. For the shaman, these rites of passage are what led to acquiring their gift to heal and be visionaries for the community. Through these initiations, they have experienced a sculpting of what is on the surface of their egos and personalities so that the depth of their spirit can shine through. As most of us do not go through formal initiations, we find that life brings us experiences that inspire, transformation and evolve us.

In this session, you will:

  • Learn how shamans view the little deaths we go through in life as well as the big death, as we transcend at the end of our lives.
  • Experience a journey that includes disintegration, illumination, re-membering, reconstruction and re-emergence that will help you dissolve your sense of separation from Source and the creative forces of the universe.
  • Explore the topic of initiation and how important formal initiations are to mental and physical health as well as beneficial for the younger generation.
  • Learn about the importance of community to welcome home initiates so they feel honored instead of being seen as outcasts, whether they are returning from war, a tragedy, or after dealing with mental or physical illness.
  • Experience a journey of initiation for liberation, purification, transformation and healing in which illness is cleansed and removed from your body and you feel revitalized.
  • Learn how to dismember blocking beliefs, judgements and disappointments.
  • Journey to ask a teacher to provide a blessing for you after your initiatory journey.
  • Join together in community to journey to the “Inner Chamber of Light.”

Module 7: Experiencing Your
Inner Light
(January 27)


In this last module of the training, you will learn how to evolve your shamanic practice to work with the power of unity consciousness. You will discover how your perception creates your reality, and how you can use your “strong eye” to view the world through the eyes of Spirit. Sandra will lead you on a journey to experience who you are beyond your skin – which is divine spiritual light.

In this session, you will:

  • Discover how you can change your reality by shifting your perception.
  • Learn how to use your “strong eye” to perceive your life and the world around you through the eyes of Spirit.
  • Experience your inner divine light and what it feels like to be lit from within.
  • Find simple methods to help others in need of healing by working with spiritual light.

Bridging Shamanism into a Modern-day World
Audio Dialogue with Sandra and Llyn Roberts


There is a huge resurgence of interest in the practice of shamanism. Sandra and Llyn, both well-known shamanic teachers, will share their experiences in bridging the ancient practice of shamanism into our culture today.

Llyn Roberts, MA, is an award-winning author and a prominent teacher of healing and shamanism. Her dynamic teaching and writing styles incorporate a background in contemplative psychotherapy, Tibetan Buddhism, work in remote locations with diverse indigenous shamanic groups, Reiki, and Western body-mind approaches to healing. Roberts holds a Master’s Degree in Tibetan Buddhist and Western Psychology and was initiated by shamans in South America and Siberia. She has trained extensively with Ecuadorian Quechua healers and facilitated sacred journeys to indigenous people living in remote regions of the Amazon, the Asian steppes, high Andes and in ancient Mayalands.

Shamanic Story Telling and Its Power to Heal
Audio Dialogue with Sandra and Lewis Mehl-Madrona


Shamans have always known how to tell the stories that would bless and heal clients and their community. Lewis Mehl-Madrona is renowned for his teaching on the art of sharing indigenous stories to heal emotional, mental and physical illness. Sandra and Lewis have an engaging conversation on this topic.

Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, graduated from Stanford University School of Medicine and trained in family medicine, psychiatry and clinical psychology. He has been on the faculties of several medical schools, most recently as associate professor of family medicine at the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine. He continues to work with aboriginal communities to develop uniquely aboriginal styles of healing and health care for use in those communities. He is also currently working with people who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia to explore healing through dialogue in community. He is the author of Coyote Medicine, Coyote Healing, and Coyote Wisdom, a trilogy of books on what Native culture has to offer the modern world. He has also written Narrative Medicine and, his most recent book, Healing the Mind through the Power of Story: The Promise of Narrative Psychiatry.

Dreamers, Shamans and Soul Recovery
Audio Dialogue with Sandra and Robert Moss


The greatest contribution of the ancient shamans to our medicine and healing today is the understanding that in the course of any life we are liable to suffer soul loss – the loss of parts of our vital energy and identity – and that in order to be whole and well, we must find the means of soul recovery. Shamans journey to find lost soul parts and bring them where they belong. Dreams can show us where soul has gone, and offer paths by which it can be reached and encouraged to come home.

In this important dialogue between Sandra and Robert Moss, we’ll learn why "anyone who dreams is a little bit shaman" and how we can help each other to become the shamans of our own souls and the healers of our own lives.

Robert Moss describes himself as a dream teacher, on a path for which there has been no career track in our culture. He is the creator of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of dreamwork and shamanism. Born in Australia, he survived three near-death experiences in childhood. He leads popular seminars all over the world, including a 3-year training for teachers of Active Dreaming. A former lecturer in ancient history at the Australian National University, he is a bestselling novelist, journalist and independent scholar. His nine books on dreaming, shamanism and imagination include Conscious Dreaming, Dreamways of the Iroquois, The Dreamer’s Book of the Dead, The Three "Only" Things, The Secret History of Dreaming, Dreamgates, Active Dreaming and Dreaming the Soul Back Home: Shamanic Dreaming for Healing and Becoming Whole.
