Shamanic Practitioner Training Course UK

This is a powerful and in-depth shamanic practitioner training that involves learning and practicing ancient ways. The shamanic practitioner 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 shamanic 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 training 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.

The exquisite Shamanic Practitioner’s course with Fotoula and Fi, of the ISIS School of Holistic Health has been entirely life altering. A beautiful trajectory of self discovery, profound revelations and the deepest healing. I had absolutely no idea what I was letting myself in for. I had no experience, expectations and had never even met a Shaman, however I had a deep calling to this work and the first time I spoke with Fotoula, I knew I had found my teacher.


The course itself is absolutely incredible, comprehensive and meticulously put together. Fotoula and Fi are passionate, gifted teachers, they have such incredible wisdom and compassion. Both so generous with their time, nothing is too much trouble. Everything was explained in such detail, we would then carry out each ceremony, step by step. Starting with the basic principals as our foundation, and each month adding to our Shamanic toolkit so that the course flowed seamlessly.


On completion I felt completely confident and fully supported to take a huge leap of faith, and entirely change the landscape of my life, fully stepping onto my sacred path. Since then everything has changed irrevocably, I now hold regular Shamanic Cacao Ceremonies, drum circles, work at women’s retreats, I have one to one clients and new projects in the pipeline.


This course is a joy from start to finish, the only downside for me was when it finished. I loved every minute and would recommend it in a heartbeat. Fotoula and Fi are the most beautiful souls, their teaching style is fabulous, a gorgeous blend of heartfelt humour and hard work. For me, The Shamanic Practitioner’s course was and continues to be completely life affirming, I have never been happier in my own skin, remembering the core nature of my essential being, it brought me home to myself.


If you hear the whisper of Shamanic practice this course is for you and you won’t find more heart led teachers.

Two-year training starting Nov 2023 in Glasgow, UK


Shamanic Practitioner Course UK

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. 

Shamanic Practitioner Course

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

Shamanic Teacher: Fotoula Adrimi

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.

About the Shamanic Practitioner Course, Glasgow, UK

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.

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:

In addition, there may be 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.
