The Sacred Trust Foundation Courses in Classical Shamanism

The Sacred Trust Foundation Courses offer a comprehensive and detailed tutoring in the foundations of classical shamanism, exploring the underlying principles & applications, methodologies & praxes found cross-culturally. These workshops and trainings cover both introductory and advanced teaching events, from weekend workshops to two-week intensive trainings and are generally considered to be the foremost trainings of their kind. This year we are offering the introductory workshop The Shaman’s Pathway on four occasions with five further advanced courses including Classical Shamanic Soul Retrieval and Classical Shamanic Extraction. These courses are taught by Simon Buxton, the founder of The Sacred Trust who has thirty years experience of practical shamanism.

Please note: The Shaman’s Path or The Way of the Shaman workshops are the prerequisite for our Advanced Courses in Classical Shamanism.

The Shaman’s Pathway

Ecstasy, Trance and the Shamanic Journey

with Simon Buxton

Simon Buxton introduces participants to the basic principles and praxes of cross-cultural and classical shamanism, being the spiritual path of direct revelation. The primary focus of this introductory workshop will be on how to apply these techniques for traveling into and exploring the non-ordinary reality of the shaman’s world through the ancient art of soul flight. Techniques for finding, working with and integrating ones own helping spirits, in animal and human form, will be taught, allowing them to provide guidance, insight and healing. The work will also include an introduction to shamanic healing, which can be used for the self and for others, basic divination methods and a community healing ritual. This introductory course represents the prerequisite for our advanced courses in classical shamanism.

“Simon Buxton is a brilliant teacher, bringing a great deal of heart and integrity to this work. I am delighted that Simon is teaching this work in Britain”
