International Conference on Shamanism,
Healing & Transformation



"As once the winged energy of delight
Carried you over childhood’s dark abysses,
Now beyond your own life build the great

Arch of unimagined bridges

- Rainer Maria Rilke…



2015 Conference – Building Bridges
September 5 - 7

Bridges between worlds ... Bridges between indigenous teachings and modern education... Bridges between generations ... Bridges between disciplines ... Bridges between mind and body ... Bridges between arts and sciences ... Bridges between dreams and waking life. Weaving together worlds and stories.

Circles of Support
We are starting off this year's fundraising project, Circles of Support. In order for the next Shamanism Conference to happen, it is imperative that our Society raise sufficient funds. With your support, we can help keep shamanic knowledge alive and grow for the next seven generations. The Society is a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation, 501(c) (3), and registered charitable trust. All donations are tax deductible. Payments can be made via PayPal or by check. To donate, click here.

We will keep you Posted
We are truly blessed with the opportunity this year, to bring elders including the grandmothers and grandfathers of the Waitaha, People of Peace from New Zealand to the conference. They are willing to share their ceremonies and traditions with us. This means we must also generate funding for transportation.
