The Foundation Weekends and Training Courses
These weekends cover the essentials of shamanic practice, including soul retrieval, working with ancestors, shamanic healing, and much more. The workshops can be done in any order, and people are free to do the workshops they feel drawn to, and to leave other workshops out. Taken together though, the workshops comprise a really thorough and solid training for anyone who really wishes go deeply into shamanic work. Many of these workshops are essential training and experience for those who wish to go on to do the practitioner training.
To attend any of these courses you must have attended one of the college’s own Introductory days first.
If you have not done an intro day with the college, but have trained in shamanism somewhere else and are thinking of asking if you can skip the intro day and go straight onto the foundation weekends, then please read this…
In the early days of the college, I did used to take people onto the foundation weekends without them having done one of the college's intro days first, if they had previously trained in shamanism somewhere else. However, although doing this did sometimes work out, most often it really didn't. Nowadays, we only take people onto the foundation weekends if they have done one of the college's intro days first. There are a number of reasons for this…
The majority of the Foundation courses are held in Llandudno, North Wales. Llandudno is a lovely town, the ‘Queen of the Welsh resorts’, in a truly beautiful part of the world. On TripAdvisor it has been voted people’s third favourite place to visit in the UK (after London and Edinburgh). Many students end up falling for the place, and come on holiday here. You can find out more about the area in terms of where to stay, places to eat, and places to visit here.
In 2019 the college will hopefully be expanding to open a new branches in Leeds and in Peebles, running Foundation Courses in those areas. More details are here.

People often ask which courses they should do first. The answer really is whichever ones you feel drawn to. That being said, if you want to build a solid basis in shamanic work (particularly if you are waning to do the practitioner training), the courses can be divided into:
The current courses fees for foundation, advanced and practitioner weekends in Llandudno are...
£140 if weekends are booked individually. Or £120 per weekend if you book for 2 or 3 weekends in one go. Or only £100 per weekend if you book for 4 or more in one go.
Deposits. The deposit required is £30 per weekend you are booking on.
Booking conditions (please read!) Except in the case of my cancelling the course, deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable (so please do not ask!). The balance for each weekend becomes due three weeks before the weekend is due to start. You can still leave it till the weekend to pay the balance, but if you cancel within this three week period, or do not turn up for the weekend, then the balance will still be due.
