Shamanism Without Borders

LEADERSHIP TRAINING

A Free In-Person Event | Sept 24-26 | Santa Fe, NM

We are grateful to share that our Shamanism Without Borders (SWB) program has been gaining momentum over the last year. This Fall, we will offer our very first in-person leadership training for those committed to facilitating this work. An opportunity for our SWB Community Leaders to learn more about the practice of Shamanism Without Borders and hone your craft as a practitioner. Over the course of three days, we will share and explore our vision for SWB, discuss the leadership guidelines, ethics and best practices, and most importantly we will all learn together, through experience. We will work in small and large practice groups both remotely and through local field trips to practice Shamanism Without Borders in and around the Santa Fe area.

Prerequisites to attend this free training event:
Offered to leaders who are already shamanic practitioners.
Read the SWB Guidebook and understand the purpose of Shamanism Without Borders.
Completed our online training series.
Attended at least 2 monthly leadership calls.
Lead a call-to-action either to your community or the monthly SSP CTA.

If you are not already an SWB Community Leader, we are currently accepting new applicants to this program and encourage you to visit our Shamanism Without Borders page. The Community Leadership application begins with a free 3-part audio training that will provide you with more information and the foundations of this practice.
