the Journey begins here

Program Courses

The next Shamanic Studies Program
starts in January!

    In 2000, when I began designing and teaching this program, I don't know that I could have imagined the impact it would have on my life, the extraordinary people I would meet, and the blessing it would be to witness students, heal and grow and bring beautiful changes to their lives and the world.  Join me in January as we begin the next adventure into the world of Shamanism.

This program is now being offered as Hybrid learning. 
You can now study with Donna from
ANYWHERE!

Join us In-Person at Donna's office in Chicago Heights, IL, or via Zoom.
There is an 8-student maximum for In-Person. 
Once we begin the Shamanic Healing Modalities portion of the program, students wishing to fly in and join us In-Person, there will be accommodations made for the over-capacity at the office. 

2023/2024 Schedule  
 

  The first 8 months of the program lays the foundation for the basic components of Shamanism, including Plant & Animal Medicine, Spirits of Nature, Medicine for the Earth, and the Power of Ceremony, as well as the basics of energetic self-care when working with others.  Having a working knowledge of these teachings is needed to walk into the second part of the program, learning Shamanic healing modalities.

   Full participation in each course is required to receive your certificate of completion.  This certificate states that you have successfully completed all of the required courses and have a working knowledge of the healing modalities taught.  You then can choose to become a Shamanic Practitioner.  As a way to support you in opening your practice, you can take part in an internship with Donna.  You are also able to take advanced trainings as well as learn how to teach the two basic Journey of the Soul Introduction to Shamanism courses.

   No one can become a certified Shaman.  Anyone walking a Shamanic Path, no matter what their degree of participation in the spiritual practice, is always evolving, aligning, learning, and growing.  This is a path of remembering and unfolding, not a becoming. We are all students and teachers on this path, walking a humble walk. I ask graduates of this program to call themselves Shamanic Practitioners.

   By agreeing to take part in this program, I ask that you be 100 percent committed to the process and the courses.  We will become a community, supporting each other in growing, learning, healing, and experience the power of walking a Shamanic Path. 

*** One-day classes and two-day courses have a $100 cancelation fee.  Three-day courses have a $200 cancelation fee.
