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. Definitely take the time to ensure you’re personally aligned with the principles and spirituality of the teacher, especially before signing up for plant medicine ceremony of any kind.
Here are four of the shamanic healers we’ve explored and recommend.
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.
Sacred Stream in Berkeley California has a great reputation for the programs and shamanic intensives they offer.

We also love the teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements. He does travel and teach both workshops and retreats. Read his books and if you’re ready to dive into his Toltec wisdom, check his site to see what’s coming.
