Lena guides us through a Shamanism Without Borders process on how to work with the element of fire, the importance of honoring this  powerful element and how to be of assistance to those negatively effected.

Shamanism Without Borders (SWB) is a Global Response Network of the Society for Shamanic Practice. If you find this work meaningful and would like to get involved please visit shamanicpractice.org/swb. Here you will find free online training, how to become an SSP supported Shamanism Without Borders Community Leader and our Free Leadership Training Event this spring in Santa Fe, NM led by Jose and Lena Stevens.


Lena Stevens is an internationally known teacher, shamanic practitioner, CSEE board member and SSP board member. She apprenticed for 10 years with a Huichol shaman from Mexico and has studied cross-cultural shamanic healing from numerous traditions including those from the Amazon basin, Native North America, Northern Europe and Siberia.

One of her specialties is the woven song tradition of the Shipibo tribe in the Peruvian Amazon, the singing of Icaros or healing songs. Lena is the co-author of The Secrets of Shamanism: How to Tap the Spirit Power Within and a contributor to The Power Path School of Shamanism.

    Thank you Lena for this journey and teaching on Fire. I was particularly struck by your emphasis of the importance of our relationship with the elements, in this case fire–honoring it, feeding it, tending to it, providing what it needs–so it doesn’t have to “take what it needs” as you suggested is happening with the fires in Australia, how these fires mirror how out of balance we are with Nature and our relationships with the transcendent spirits of the land. Thank you. Sheldon
