The Foundation for Shamanic Studies with drumming

Founded in 1979 by anthropologist Michael Harner, The Foundation for Shamanic Studies is dedicated to the preservation, study, and teaching of shamanic knowledge for the welfare of the planet and its inhabitants. All of our work is based on the concept of core shamanism, a system designed for Westerners to apply shamanism and shamanic healing successfully to their daily lives. This system is based upon the universal features of all brands of shamanism, rather than upon variations specific to certain cultures and regions of the world.
