Watch the documentary The Way of the Shaman: The Work of Michael and Sandra Harner, the story of their work in the history and development of core shamanism. This film is an inspiring look at the people behind the evolution of this groundbreaking spiritual healing methodology.


The Way of the Shaman pioneered the shamanic renaissance in the West and remains the foremost resource and reference on practical shamanism. Cave and Cosmos, its sequel, draws from a lifetime of personal shamanic experiences, providing instructions on Michael Harner's innovative core shamanism.

Your donation will help preserve endangered shamanic knowledge and return this transformative healing practice to contemporary society — as well as fostering essential long-term planning crucial to sustaining the Foundation's programs.
