Patricia White Buffalo's Walking the Shaman's Path Program has been deeply transformative and healing on a personal level as well as exceptionally good training for aspiring Shamanic practitioners. As I walked the medicine wheel, I reclaimed aspects of my soul and healed the wounds of lifetimes past and present. Amazing! I cannot recommend this program emphatically enough. ~Juli Gumbiner, Boulder Creek, CA~
I am very excited to introduce my Shamanic Training & Personal Transformational Program "WALKING THE SHAMAN"S PATH"! A unique, extensive, training & transformational program that includes all the basic teachings of the shamanic practice, but more importantly, A POWERFUL LIFE TRANSFORMATIONAL EXPERIENCE.
With holding the basic belief that, “No one can take another where they have not walked themselves,” you will be trained as a Shamanic Practitioner who has walked their own personal path of self-healing. You will develop mastery of the shamanic journey and communication in the shamanic realm. Learn several core shamanic techniques, as well as advanced techniques that I have created. Also included in the training is the basic art of laying-on of hands that I have blended with Shamanism. Your training will include work with individuals, humanity, and the planet.
The program will also incorporate the modern sciences of anatomy, epigenetics and quantum physics to develop a greater foundation for more conscious work in the non-ordinary realities. Finally, you will study psycho-spirituality and develop counseling and professional skills necessary to establish a successful practice.

THE PROGRAM INCLUDES
THE STUDY OF SHAMANISM
"Shamanism is a path of knowledge, not of faith, and that knowledge cannot come from me or anyone else in this reality. To acquire that knowledge, it is necessary to step through the Shaman's doorway and acquire empirical evidence."
~ Michael Harner, Ph.D. ~
In order to interact effectively in the parallel-reality of the Shamanic World, you need to be pro-active, empowered, and have the confidence to seek direct information for healing in any given situation regarding a client, humanity, or the planet. This requires the practitioner to master the ability to enter, walk, interpret, and communicate within this realm, where all the answers and healing knowledge occurs.
In this program you will master the ability to enter the doorway of the Shamanic World. One of the basic forms that will be emphasized will be the shamanic journey. With the aid of drumming and other repetitive sound techniques you will learn to go into a altered state of consciousness that allows you to enter this mystical realm. After mastering this ability you will learn how to use the information and shamanic techniques to heal and problem solve at every level of your client’s mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual being.
Although Shamanism has many different practices from its world-wide traditions, there are several core shamanic techniques that are universally shared. In this program you will learn these basic core techniques such as soul retrieval, power animal retrieval, extraction healing, past-life healing, soul remembering, ancestral healing, and elemental healing. Integrated with these core techniques is a perceptive blend of shamanic techniques that I have developed through my own practice. They include: sound, cellular, quantum, creation, systems of the body healing and destiny healings. I have also incorporated these shamanic techniques with my own form of hands on healing.
In all traditions of the shamanic studies there is the importance of accessing one’s own helpers in the form of power animals, nature spirits, guardian spirits, and the ancestors to aid the Practitioner in their healing work. In this program you will be supported as you develop these vital connections to your shamanic helpers. And most importantly, receive support to help you connect to your own ancestral shamanic tradition.
THE PERSONAL TRANFORMATIONAL PROCESS
In the process of becoming a Shamanic Practitioner, one must walk their own personal healing journey to truly be able to guide another. In this program you will be required to take this personal path of self-transformation and realization through the program’s main psychology/spiritual teaching, The Wheel of Awakening. This is a unique model that utilizes the teachings of the Medicine Wheel, Early Child Development, Transpersonal Psychology, and Eastern Spirituality. Through these teachings and transformational processes, your early childhood developmental foundation is strengthened, unhealthy false belief systems rewritten, and the divine truth of who you are is realized. The integration of personal process work with the training of basic Shamanism helps you become healthier, grounded, and more balanced with a stronger, foundation of the lower chakra system and a clearer connection to your higher chakra system. While opening and centering the self in the heart chakra the door way to the Shamanic realm. By learning and experiencing the basic techniques in your own transformational/realization process, you learn how to walk your clients through their personal process. This gives the Practitioner a greater ability to heal and serve others, humanity and the planet.
THE STUDY OF MODERN SCIENCE
The true power of Shamanism is in the ability to walk in both worlds, with one foot in the present-reality, and one foot in the parallel-reality of the shamanic realm. By mastering this discipline, one has greater ability to create profound and lasting transformational shifts in their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being.
This program is solidly grounded in this discipline. It teaches students how to master the ability to enter and travel the parallel-reality of the Shamanic World utilizing its transformational and healing potential. While also teaching the studies of anatomy, quantum physics, epigenetics, science of the mind and evolution, to solidly place our footing in present reality.
The marriage of scientific knowledge and the ability to travel in non-ordinary reality is unique and powerful for self-transformation and healing. This combination of studies and skills produces Shamanic Practitioners that are more solidly grounded in both worlds and more powerfully effective as conscious masters of creation.
COUNSELING AND PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE DEVELOPMENT
To be an effective Shamanic Practitioner it’s important to genuinely connect and know how to work with various personalities to be able to reach clients at a deeper soul level. In this program you will be taught the necessary skills to confidently give a personal interview, a collect case history, and evaluate your client’s characterology. With this information you will be better able to communicate and administer to your client.
You will also learn the basic skills of transference, listening with presence, and contact while holding healthy boundaries. At a higher level of contact you will learn how to directly communicate with your clients at a soul to soul level. This is an essential skill to receive the confidence of your client so that deeper forms of healing can occur.
Shamanism is sacred and powerful work that requires a high level of professionalism and ethics. Each participant will be taught and develop the basic professionalism and ethics necessary to hold the sacred trust of their client, humanity and the planet in performing this work.
Note: Several of these courses will be taught over the Internet on a Webcast site or as a telecourse, to allow more time during our class meetings to focus on the transformational and Shamanic work of the program.

"I urgently recommend that you make a home video of yourself before you start Walking the Shaman's Path with Patricia White Buffalo. Why? Because you wouldn't believe how much you will change in such a short time. After one year of Patricia's program I have transformed tremendously: I feel self-confident and secure, understand my children, don't argue anymore with my wife and love to make contact with other people. I have learned to apply powerful healing techniques and I have developed shamanic abilities, which I did not know I had. I am so blissful that I have found my true calling. There remains only one question, for which an answer is still beyond my imagination: Who will I be after the third year of the program?"
