Steven, initiated into shamanic practice in 1974, has a private practice of transpersonal counselling and shamanic healing. He is Co-President of the Association for Transpersonal Psychology and a Board Member of the European Transpersonal Association.
Shamanism is the oldest spiritual tradition known to humankind and continues to be relevant to our contemporary world. It persists because it is practical and it works. Shamans have developed and used technologies (knowledge, tools, skills, and expertise) for shifting consciousness and for transformation.
These ancient technologies can be integrated with modern psychology to help us understand and facilitate healing of modern illness, alienation, dispiritedness, and dysfunction. This course will explore the practice of shamanism through the perspectives of Transpersonal Psychology and the practical lense of a Shamanic Practitioner.
