Shamanic training

Thank you for your interest in the shamanic path of power and in my training as a “Shamanic Practitioner”.
On this page you will find a detailed description about it.

I live and teach authentic European shamanism, as it was already practiced in the Neolithic Age in the extended Danube region, now the Dunkelsteinerwald. Mythologically embedded in this field, participants are encouraged to develop their own abilities and find their place in the cosmos. From this rootedness, growth will take place and it will be possible to anchor in the shamanic world.

We will acquire all the tools necessary to accompany people lovingly, powerfully and empathically in their personal development in a safe framework, with my idea of morality and ethics. To be able to ensure this, one focus of the training is dedicated to your own “emotional growth”; emotional balance is essential for shamanic, magical work!


In the first section, Module I-V, you will be introduced to the shamanic worldview and the basics of shamanic work. On an emotional level, the focus is on your own “healing”. In addition, your power body will be strengthened so that you can absorb and work with more magic. You will get to know the trance in all its facets and begin to put into practice what you have learned with your group colleagues.

In the second section, Module VI-X, you build your own frame drum, your ally in the Otherworld. You dive deeper into the shamanic, magical universe and begin to create your own world. You are the creator of your universe and perceive yourself more as a magical being. After deepening shamanic processes, working with yourself and with clients, you experience your life task. You will enter the purifying sweat lodge and after a 48-hour time-out alone in nature, you will carry your vision out into the world.

The training cycle is divided into 10 modules. Most of the modules take place on weekends from Friday to Sunday, so that they can be easily integrated into a work schedule. Except module 1 (Thu-Sun) and module 10 (Mon-Fri).
The entire training period extends over approximately 2 years. Between the modules, students will practice what they have learned independently in peer groups and exchange ideas. Individual self-experience with me as needed, is seen as part of the training. Another training point is assisting at open workshops. Here you will be introduced to accompanying groups.
