The Three Ravens College of Therapeutic Shamanism UK

Further Steps in Therapeutic Shamanism:

The Online Courses


After completing at least two of the college’s Next-Step courses, the Further-Step courses continue the exploration of Therapeutic Shamanism and take people’s practice to new levels and into new areas. The courses included exploration of the shamanic Upper-world, shamanic spirituality and meditation practices, the ‘cycle of life’ (sometimes referred to as the medicine wheel), exploring the body’s energy systems, and much more.


Like the courses that precede them, the Further-Steps are usually arranged into one or two online sessions a week, with exercises to practice at home. Courses vary in length, depending on the topic being covered, and can be taken in any order.




The next courses are:


The Upper-World 1: Grounded Spirituality. A fresh look at spirituality, meditation practices, and mindfulness from the perspective of Therapeutic Shamanism. The role of the shaman as one of service. Four Saturday meetings: Aug 7, 14, 21, 28. 4pm start (UK time). Each meeting is between 3½ to 4 hours long. Cost is £100. There will be two tutors at each session, with Paul Francis, Chris Holt, Jayne Birkett, and Marie Edwards all contributing to the teaching. For more details or to book, contact Marie on marielouiseedwards@hotmail.com


The Upper-World 2: Exploring the shamanic Upper-World. How to journey to the Upper-World, and making sense of what you encounter there. Developing shamanic Upper-World practices. Four Saturday meetings: Oct 2, 9, 16, 23. 4pm start (UK time). Each meeting is between 3½ to 4 hours long. Cost is £100. There will be two tutors at each session, with Paul Francis, Chris Holt, Jayne Birkett, and Marie Edwards all contributing to the teaching. For more details or to book, contact Chris on chrisgibbons01@hotmail.com


The Wheel of Life: The Shamanic Guide to the Seasons of the Year and the Stages of Life. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Medicine Wheel’, this course explores the cycle of the 5 elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth. Learning this can not only be of immense help in helping us to reconnect with Nature and the natural cycles of the year, but can also provide us with a profoundly useful road map for our own emotional, psychological and spiritual development too. This course, and the knowledge in it, is one of the ones that students most often refer to as life-changing and life-enhancing, and one that most brings their shamanic work together. Starting in 2022, the course consists of eight Sunday morning meetings, 10 am start time (UK time), each roughly 6 weeks apart, following the eight “sabbats” of the year. Dates (all 2022) are: January 30, Mar 20, May 1, June 19, Jul 31, Sept 18, Oct 30, Dec 18. Each meeting is between 3½ to 4 hours long. Cost is £200. There will be two tutors at each session, with Paul Francis, Chris Holt, Jayne Birkett, and Marie Edwards all contributing to the teaching.
