Training as a Shamanic Practitioner

A shamanic practitioner is someone who is

willing to step into the unknown and surrender

to the River of Life and Divine Will

Shamanism has been practiced for thousands of years. As the veils

between the worlds become thinner, in these times, many people are

drawn to the ancient spirituality of Mother Earth and Father Sky.


Shamanism is a lifetime practice. It is a vocation, an inner calling, a way

of life. When the calling comes, either in our heart or through a spiritual

experience, Fotoula, as a teacher, can help you navigate the spiritual

planes and teach you how can harness your inherent shamanic gifts.

Through the training as a shamanic practitioner, you have the

opportunity to grow personally and spiritually and if you choose to,

become a vessel of spiritual power and light that can help other people, as well as your community. 


At the same time, a practitioner needs to be grounded. Unless the practice is based in the present and everyday reality, it has little value.


Rather than teaching individual modules, we offer an in-depth training that will cover the aspects that you need

for your work. Our teaching includes theory, but it is experiential. You will learn through group work, individual practice, initiations, ritual and ceremony. 


These are some of the topics we cover in our training

The Shamanic Practitioner Training is based on Classic Core Shamanism Practice

Power Retrieval and Introduction: We will cover the three shamanic worlds, the three times, as well as experiential practice of shamanic healing and working with the animal spirits in alternative realities. Participants also learn to retrieve power and life-force for clients through journeying.

In Medicine for the Earth and Shamanic Healing with Spiritual Light we ally with the four elements, perform space clearing and experience our own radiance through the light of our essence, the shamanic transfiguration. 


Soul Retrieval in the cornerstone of shamanic healing and practiced widely across the globe by indigenous shamans. We learn to retrieve other peoples' soul essence, remember our intention for incarnating and release

the soul essence we have carried that belongs to other people. 


Shamanic Extraction is a way to extract energetic intrusions from the body of your client and neutralise them, 


A big part of our work is being the psychopomp, helping those who are in the process of dying or have died but could not cross through the veil. You will  learn about the soul's journey after death, the rebirth in the spiritual realms and how to support people who are grieving. We also work with de-possession. This is the work of Death and Dying.


Ancestral Healing is a very important part of the course. Many of the issues we face in our lives, may originate in the ancestors. We learn how to heal our lineage and integrate its gifts. We work with and honour the wise ancestors who are part of our healing team.


Ceremonial work focuses on working with Mother Earth, the Wheel, the sun and moon and astral energies.

We see ourselves as part of the Earth and Nature and at the same time we are the cosmic traveller.  


Shamanic Birthing and Rebirthing initiates a new beginning on our path of life. A wonderful way of working

to heal our own birthing into the world and to connect once more to our intention for incarnating.

Supporting your Work – Having A Spiritual Shamanic Practice

In committing to walk the shamanic path, you open yourself to spiritual beings of light and it

is important to work with integrity and for the highest good. It is also important to practice. 


Below are some suggestions for people who wish to focus on, and take ownership of their

shamanic path:


  • Practice shamanic journeying once a week.

  • Have a regular daily spiritual practice that helps calm the conditioned mind. This could be

  • meditation, mantra chanting, time in nature, ritual, ceremony etc. It may be different for each person.

  • Continue personal development through inner work. Shamanism is a path where we embrace our vulnerability, open our heart and work with integrity and love. As we walk this path, issues and patterns will come up. If we choose to acknowledge and work with the patterns they can be cleared, and we can move towards becoming 'the clear vessel' through which the light of spirit shines.

  • As we walk further along the path we will be called to: develop our integrity, and personal responsibility;

  • look at addictive behaviours and what takes us out of balance; develop self love, as well as understanding

  • and compassion for all beings; whilst at the same time embracing our own personal power and soul purpose.


Dear Fotoula – I wanted to say how invaluable and rewarding it has been undertaking Shamanic training with the ISIS School. And repeating the training has been so positive. It has deepened and widened my direct experience and practice. Also, I have met such beautiful people and received important support and insight through these connections. As always your teaching is spot on and I know it is completely guided by the transcendent guides who are at the heart of this ancient sacred healing practice. I hope others will consider doing the course again, because it really is an incredible opportunity. Thank you from my heart for the important work you are doing.
