Shamanism Without Borders

LEADERSHIP TRAINING

A Free In-Person Event | April 17-19 | Santa Fe, NM

SWB Leadership Training

April 17 – 19, 2020 | Santa Fe, NM

We are grateful to share that our Shamanism Without Borders (SWB) program has been gaining momentum over the last year and this Spring we will offer our very first in-person leadership training for those committed to facilitating this work. This event is 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 our 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.

If you are not already a 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.
