This program is now closed for the 2017/2018 Program.  But the next program will be very similar.  Please email us at if you are interested in the 2019 program that will begin in April of 2019 and we can add you to the list of those to contact once the the 2019 program is open for application.


The purpose of this program is to learn about the shamanic path, from ancient to modern, how it interfaces with modern quantum physics, and, through powerful practices, ceremonies, wilderness solos and other shamanic experiences, to assimilate its wisdom and integrate it fully into daily life.

Enrollment is limited to 30 students that will form a supportive community for the year. A commitment to attend all meetings is expected and required as a prerequisite for any further advanced study.

Tuition: $3800 requiring $1500 deposit (non-refundable after July 1, 2017) with the balance paid in 10 installments of $230/monthly over the first 10 months beginning September 5, 2017.

The program is open to those who have some prior experience with shamanism, and by acceptance of the school. Participants must be in good physical and emotional condition, able to be in altitudes up to 9 thousand feet, hike on uneven ground, camp and sleep in a tent, and participate in all events some requiring early morning chi gong and sometimes staying up at night.

There will be 5 meetings beginning October 5, 2017 and ending October 8, 2018.

Three meetings will be held at Eagle Bear, one will be a Southwest Road trip to work with power spots in and around the Southwest including Chaco Canyon, and one will be at a private rustic resort on the beach one hour north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The meetings at Eagle Bear will be all-inclusive with glorified camping facilities, bring your own tent, or trailer rental on a first come first serve basis. The meeting in Mexico requires your flight to Mexico and some transportation costs and that’s about it as all meals and lodging in shared rooms are included. We may add a whale watching trip at an extra charge. The Southwest road trip requires camping in individual or shared tents and shared meal costs (participants will team up for sharing meal prep) and carpooling in 4-wheel drive high clearance vehicles. Each participant will be responsible for their own travel costs as well as any additional costs of lodging or food when not at Eagle Bear.
