POWER PATH ONE YEAR SHAMANIC STUDIES PROGRAM 2023/24
With Jose, Lena and Anna Stevens
The purpose of this program is to learn about the shamanic path, from ancient to modern through powerful practices, ceremonies, lots of time in nature, wilderness solos and other shamanic experiences, to assimilate its wisdom and integrate it fully into daily life.
Enrollment is limited to 26-30 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 is $6500, with a $2500 deposit and 10 subsequent $400 payments.
The program is open to those who have an interest in shamanism as a life path. Prior experience with shamanism is not required but is helpful. 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. Participants must also be willing, able and available to commit to the curriculum in between meeting times of homework, a buddy system and zoom calls. Note: We cannot accommodate very restrictive diets or numerous food allergies. Participation in the program is dependent upon acceptance by the school.
There will be 5 meetings beginning with a meeting October 4-8, 2023 and ending with a graduation the weekend of October 3-6, 2024.
The first meeting as well as 2 others will be held in Northern New Mexico, two hours NE of Santa Fe, one will be a Southwest Road trip to work with power spots in and around the Southwest, and one will be at a private resort on the beach one hour north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The meetings at our ranch will be all-inclusive once you have arrived at the Ranch 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 a few optional extras such as a whale watching oportunity. All Mexican-style meals and lodging in shared rooms and cabins are included. The Southwest road trip requires camping in individual or shared tents and shared meal costs (participants will team up for bringing and 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 traveling to and from our ranch in Northern New Mexico. We suggest carpooling and sharing accommodations when possible.

Here are what previous students are saying about the program:
This program has been a blessing to my life as well as the lives of the people close to me. It was a powerful portal to walk through. The teachings were clear, concise, and functional. The experiential aspects were permeated with truth and beauty. The facilitation by the Stevens’ was masterful. I have grown and expanded on many levels. This was the sort of education that I have been wanting for a long time and am so glad that I made the decision. – Vlaiko, Chicago, IL
The One Year Program with the Power Path changed my life. I cherished all of it, from the incredible adventures, the wonderful teachings, the community (who now I call my family), to witnessing myself grow and transform. The benefits from The One Year Program has had a positive ripple effect on all areas of my life including my relationships, health, work and art. Not one day goes by where I don’t refer to the wisdom shared or the tools given to navigate my life. The Power Path is built on integrity and clear of any dogma and sticky boundaries sometimes found in spiritual communities. Throughout the year I had to pinch myself – I sometimes couldn’t believe that I was so fortunate to be in such beautiful settings and learning all the things my heart has always yearned for. I hold that year near and dear to my heart and I am forever grateful that I took the leap and signed up, it puts a smile on my face just to recall it all and warms my heart! -Leah, Santa Fe, NM
The one year program has been a true blessing with the teachings, support calls and homework.
Dormant medicine gifts and past life memories have been reawakened and I am filled with gratitude, love and awe, to see, feel and hear how everything is unfolding without any resistance.
The power path and clan is supporting me to connect with my true essence and also in my quest to my true soul work and remaining mission during this lifetime.
The connection with spirit, the universe, the elementals, and my allies have given me back my trust and opened my heart even more, to share my love, medicine and joy with every being on this planet and beyond. -Tanya, Stuttgart, Germany
I’m extremely grateful to Jose, Lena and Anna for their wisdom, their inspiration and their hard work. The Power Path One Year Program set numerous things in motion for me which are now central in my life, family, work and daily practice. I’ve longed my entire life to find this community and to begin to unlock the endless teachings and traditions kept amongst our indigenous brothers and sisters. It was also a great honor share the experience with my wife. Together and independently we’ve become stronger and more clear about our path. As a result, our lives continue to be enriched with tools for healing, tools to express our joy, gratitude and love. We are now able to anchor in our personal power and better navigate imbalances that show up in our relationship. The program was not easy and it’s probably not for everyone but profound initiations which many of us seek, to deepen our truth, to awaken our intuition and to celebrate the gift of being alive, can be found in this incredible work. – Adam, Santa Fe, NM
The one year program was so much more than advertised. The powerful places that we went to, the personal one on one time, and the experience with as a group was a once in a lifetime event ! It has opened eyes and my heart, I will truly never be the same. Thank you Power Path!!! – Dan, Tulsa, OK
