The Power Path One Year Shamanic Studies Program

With Jose, Lena and Anna Stevens

Our extensive shamanic training program began in the year 2000 with a seventeen-day intensive course that quickly ballooned to a two-year course through participant demand. This two-year course involved extensive travel to the Andes in Peru, the Amazon, Guatemala, and Mexico to meet and study with shamans on site. Eventually, as this type of travel became progressively more expensive and was quite time consuming, there were many requests from people to slim it down to one year with less travel and more teaching. 

So, in 2009, the one-year programs commenced and have been running every year to the present. The newer one-year program no longer travels to Peru and Guatemala, but continues with local travel to powerful sites in the Southwest states and Mexico. Much of it takes place at Eagle Bear Ranch in Northern New Mexico. 

The purpose of this program is to learn about the shamanic path, from ancient to modern through powerful practices, ceremonies, much time in nature, wilderness solos and other shamanic experiences, to assimilate its wisdom and integrate it fully into daily life.

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 qi gong and sometimes staying up at night. 

Each meeting includes song, movement, storytelling, prayer, creative expression, ceremony and practices for building personal power. 

Since the study of shamanism is many thousands of years old, students have the opportunity to learn skills and ways of seeing the world that has since been forgotten or neglected in our modern culture. Many of these practices and techniques are extremely powerful and make one much more effective in managing projects, relationships, and general life affairs.

Students form a supportive community for the year. 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.

Many of our graduates form a tight community of hundreds of people who have shared similar training and experiences and who count each other as their friends and colleagues. Graduates of this program can be found running multinational enterprises, management consulting, directing nonprofits, healing and coaching. 

There are many advanced opportunities available to our one-year program graduates including practitioners trainings, pilgrimages to Mexico to work with the Wixarika (Huichols), trips to the Peruvian Amazon to do plant diets with the Shipibo and journeys to the Andes to visit the Stone Forest and work with Paqos there as well.

One-Year Program Testimonials

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 a group was a once in a lifetime event ! It has opened my eyes and my heart, I will truly never be the same. Thank you Power Path!!!

Dan, Tulsa, OK

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 to 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 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

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

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.
