Internationally renowned anthropologist Michael Harner founded the FSS in 1985 to preserve, study, and transmit shamanic knowledge worldwide. Dr. Harner has been recognized as the pioneer in the revival of shamanism in the west since his work in the early 1960s with Amazonian shamanic cultures.

The Foundation for Shamanic Studies has built a reputation of consistency and dependability by providing reliable training in core shamanic techniques to interested learners worldwide. Their Shamanic Journeywork® recordings have been specifically designed for serious journey work as explained in Michael Harner's classic work The Way of the Shaman (Harper & Row, 1980; Harper San Francisco, 1990).

The Foundation's recordings evoke the traditional shamanic experience by using the frame drum and other primitive instruments. A steady, simple beat continues through the length of the journey, and each journey ends with a precisely signaled callback. These are the classics in the field, used for decades by thousands of shamanic students and practitioners. On most of the Foundation's CDs, half-hour journeys are split into two tracks for your convenience; you can select the first track for a full half hour, or the second track for a 15-minute journey.
