15+ Shamanic Retreats in California

When it comes to shamanic experiences, California has a lot to offer.

As you consider your options for shamanic experiences, we recommend that you take the time to ensure you’re personally aligned with the principles and spirituality of the teacher.

The work of shamanism is intensely personal, with the potential to bring huge energetic shifts and heart openings. So being in a safe, held space with a trusted teacher is super important.

New to shamanism?

We’ve interviewed shamanic teacher, Angela Prider to bring you a 411 on what shamanism is and how it can support you.

Here are a few shamanic organizations we’d recommend exploring:

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies, founded by Michael Harner, who wrote the beautiful book, The Way of the Shaman.This is a great resource to explore teachings, workshops, and retreats.

Sandra Ingerman is a beautiful teacher, who’s wisdom and guidance is accessible. You can discover virtual workshops and upcoming live events on her site. To get a sense of her style, check out this podcast interview she did for Sounds True.
