An Advanced Weekend Workshop*
with Beth Beurkens, M.A.

Course Description

Participants learn how to deal with the issue of dying and the destiny of souls from a shamanic perspective. The workshop is both for those who wish to learn for themselves, and for those who wish to help others who are in terminal situations or who have already passed on. Experiences to be undertaken include learning how to become experientially familiar with the after-death realms, tracking a person using shamanic journeying, completing unfinished business, helping a person to cross over, and classic psychopomp work.

Shamanism, Dying & Beyond is one of the FSS prerequisites for the Core Soul Retrieval Training and the Three Year Shamanism Training.
