Certificates & Training

The Certificate Programs in Applied Shamanic Practice and Plant Medicine Integration provide a well-grounded and comprehensive shamanic training that is entirely relevant to the modern context. Graduates of these programs will have all the tools they need to establish and maintain a healing practice based in shamanic principles.

Applied Shamanic Practitioner Certificate

Students who complete this training and an annual report are listed as practitioners on this site. There is an annual fee for listing and review. The requirements for an Applied Shamanic Practitioner are as follows below.

(Please note that all of the courses required for Applied Shamanic Practitioners are also required for the Certificate in Plant Medicine Integration, but not all are required prerequisites to taking the Plant Medicine workshops. Classes indicated below are not required for students interested in taking the Plant Medicine workshops.)

* Attendance at the following workshops offered by Sacred Stream and its affiliates:

  • Please be advised that tutorial versions of courses, designed to help students who missed a prerequisite course to begin training, do not count toward a certificate. They do, however, qualify students to take the full course for which they completed the tutorial at the repeat rate.

* Eight (8) transcripts of sessions with clients: four (4) transcripts of  applied shamanic counseling sessions and four (4) transcripts of applied shamanism sessions (using various techniques, not including shamanic counseling; contact us for details).  Transcripts must be turned in within 12 months of Advanced Applied Shamanism and must pass review. (For active Depth Hypnosis Practitioners, only the latter four (4) session transcripts are required.)

* Session transcript review and certification fee ($250). If session transcripts do not pass review initially, each additional transcript review is $50. (For active Depth Hypnosis Practitioners the review and set-up fee is only $125.)

* Renewal requirements include an annual report, annual fee of $195, and participation in the annual Advanced Applied Shamanism Seminar. The first seminar will occur in 2020. Date TBA.
