THE SEARCHER'S ROAD MAP
“Ellen Winner practices shamanic healing and teaches core shamanism for the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. Core shamanism consists of universal, near-universal, and common features of shamanism, together with journeys to other worlds. This is a form of shamanism developed by Dr. Michael Harner, an anthropologist who was initiated into their shamanic traditions by indigenous shamans of many different cultures.

Ellen Winner speaks about Core Shamanism.
