Shamanic Training Program

The Two Year Apprenticeship Program includes:

  • Sacred Teachings of the Medicine Wheel – It is set up with the 4 directions and a centerstone – each direction has its gifts and lesson to help us.  They are made all over the world – ancient times to present – to help manifest your prayers
  • Meeting & Working with Animal Guides & Totems – they assist in your efforts.
  • Connecting with Nature Spirits – animals, trees, plants, stones, water all have energy and a spirit
  • Journeying for information – this technique of traveling is what makes Shaman work unique
  • Maintaining and/or Restoring Personal Power – tools are given to find your way back to who you were to be
  • Ceremonies – to honor an event by taking it out of ordinary life
  • Drumming, Rattling & Trance Dancing – to quiet the mind and let go of everyday problems
  • A Vision Quest

There is a commitment of 2 years, meeting every 2 months on Saturday 4-10 PM and the following Sunday morning 9-12 AM, for a total of 13 weekend sessions with each session building on the next. (It is recommended but not required to spend the night).  The cabins in Colden are rustic & you will be immersed in nature.  The 1st class (Sat & Sun) dates will be determined by the group.  There will be a maximum of 10 students for individual attention.
Cost:  $1,000 per year.


For any participant unable to be in the woods for whatever reason, an Intro Class and a 2 Year Program at Mystic Wolf in Williamsville will be offered.

For the ultimate Shaman experience, the class in the woods is highly recommended. However, the non-woods class offers many tools and experiences that will be of great value to you and enhance Spiritual Growth.
