The soul's purpose is to awaken


Shamanic Practitioner Training

Starting 10-11 October 2020


An in-depth, spirit-guided and soul-expansive shamanic practitioner course 


Powerful, in-depth training


Join a powerful and in-depth shamanic practitioner training to learn and practice these 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.


During the course we will work both individually and in circle to walk the shamanic path through the drum, for ourselves and others.


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.


About Fotoula Adrimi

Fotoula was born into the Adrimi family (Adrimi means of the Oak tree). The family hold a shamanic lineage from ancient Greece, although many of the old practices have been fast disappearing. As a child, Fotoula was intrigued by the ancient ceremonies of bone divination and full moon rituals.

When the shamanic path called her, Fotoula went through a death experience and severed herself from her previous life. 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.

About the Course


This is a journey of 12 months and one day. 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 some experience of shamanism, either by receiving a shamanic healing or, preferably, attending a shamanic circle. 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 the two hour Way of the Drum shamanic circle.

Once you sign up, changes may take place to align you with your path and soul's calling. Places are limited.
