15+ Shamanic Retreats in California

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

From plant medicine ceremonies like Ayahuasca, to deep sound journeying to Cacao ceremonies to Firewalking, we’d like to invite you to explore the following list of upcoming shamanic events, all of which have the intention of connecting people with nature, their essential selves, inner wisdom, and clarity.

If you’re new to shamanic practice, the key to choosing a shamanic experience or teacher, is ensuring you’re personally aligned with the principles and spirituality of the teachings. This is typically VERY personal work, which goes well beyond Ayahuasca healing.

Learn more about what shamanism is.

We’d recommend the shamanic teachers you’ll find over on the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, founded by Michael Harner, who wrote the beautiful book, The Way of the Shaman. We also love the teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz , author of The Four Agreements, and Sandra Ingerman both of whom offer shamanic retreats and workshops. Sacred Stream in Berkeley California has a great reputation for the programs and shamanic intensives they offer..

If you’re looking for a California meditation retreat or yoga retreats in California, we’ve got you covered on both fronts. Happy seeking! Let us know if you need more tips- we’re here to support your journey from the head to the heart.
