New In Person Shamanic Practitioner Training

A two-year programme starting January 2022 until December 2023

Spirit words given to Fotoula 

in a dream describing 

a shamanic practitioner –

"You are straddling the two realities, the physical and the spiritual, integrating them and bringing them to the whole."

A shamanic practitioner is a bridge between the world of spirit and the alternative realities, and our own physical world. The practitioner crosses the bridge entering parallel universes to bring healing, 

life-force, guidance and deep awareness to themselves, their clients and their community. 

This is a powerful and in-depth shamanic practitioner training that involves learning and practicing ancient ways. The course is designed to take participants through 
the initiations of the shamanic path and teach the healing work of a shamanic practitioner. Participants will work with spirit guides and teachers of the light, to become the bridge between the worlds and bring the spiritual light into the physical reality.

The course will cover: cord cutting and dismemberment, ceremony, power retrieval, soul retrieval, shamanic journeying and divination, shamanic healing, shamanic transfiguration and medicine for the Earth, ancestral healing, death and dying, de-possession, extraction, moon and sun rites and shamanic re-birthing. It is a comprehensive course offering a strong foundation for shamanic practice.

The whole course is taught as a two year ceremony. It is much more than sharing information and techniques. We will be riding a shamanic wave on a journey home to ourselves. We hope that the ceremony will carry everyone to a new depth and inner understanding, within and outside the times we meet.

Shamanic Teacher: Fotoula Adrimi

Fotoula was born into the Adrimi family in Greece (Adrimi means of the Oak tree). As a child, Fotoula was intrigued by the local ceremonies of bone divination and full moon rituals that originate from ancient Greece.

When the shamanic path called her, Fotoula had a spiritual awakening. Since then she has studied and travelled intensively, training in shamanism with Sandra Ingerman and indigenous shamans from various traditions (Native American, Himalayan, Peruvian, Toltec). She has also retrieved many of the old ceremonies and stories from her living elders and ancestral spirits.

Fotoula is highly experienced in teaching the shamanic ways and radiates the light of compassion to her students. She has been holding weekly shamanic circles and workshops since 2009 and teaching shamanic practitioners since 2012. As a practitioner herself, Fotoula has been working with clients since 2007 and has helped hundreds of people. Fotoula is the author of the best selling book: The Golden Book of Wisdom: Ancient Spirituality and Shamanism in Modern Times. 

Video: In this shamanic ceremony, you merge with your shamanic ancestral helping spirit and then your power animal for the purpose of shamanic healing. Fotoula guides you through the creation of sacred space, invocation to the helping spirits and finally a deep merging with these spiritual energies of the light through the drum for the purpose of shamanic healing. 

The video includes a channelling from one of the shamanic ancestors, a grandmother who talks about shamanism in ancient times and offers support to the spiritual and shamanic practitioners of today. The grandmother helping spirit also stresses the need for personal work as this path is both challenging and blissful.

About the Training

This is a journey of two years. To graduate as a shamanic practitioner participants need to complete all modules and casework, and attend the graduation ceremony. This is a commitment each participant makes with the wise spirits/guardians of these ancient teachings. The course teaches the methods but it is up to participants and their wise spirit teachers to develop the art. No-one can make us a practitioner. It is an inner calling and a gift from spirit to the person.

Before subscribing to the course, it is recommended that participants have experience of shamanism and journeying. It is best if people know this path is for them before they take the initiation. To experience a shamanic journey with Fotoula, you can attend one of Fotoula's Online Shamanic Circles. If you are fairly new to shamanism, we strongly recommend our Recorded Webinar Course – Introductory Shamanic Course – the Shamanic Way.

Once you sign up, changes may take place to align you with your path and soul's calling. Places on the course are limited. Should there be any restrictions to meeting in-person (eg lockdowns) the course will continue online for the affected weekends. If you are interested in the Practitioner's course email Fotoula as soon as possible: [email protected]

In addition, there are also spaces available for anyone who has already completed the Shamanic Practitioner Course with The ISIS School of Holistic Health, and wishes to repeat the course.
