Franco Santoro

Astroshamanism is a holistic system of healing aimed at expanding human perception through integrating the basic principles of shamanism with experiential astrology, the contemporary revival of archaic mystery traditions and the spirit of the Findhorn Community.

This two-week intensive offers a unique and thorough exposure to shamanic practice with a continuity of contact with Franco and his associates. Participants in the programme will experience practical tools for opening, discovering and supporting the relationship with their core spiritual identity and essential intent - a wide-ranging journey encompassing a tapestry of spiritual practices mainly from the Christian tradition, integrated with the structure of astroshamanism. They will also focus on releasing blocks and retrieving hidden potentials, and will learn to bring shamanic healing work in their life and relationship with others

The programme is designed for newcomers as well as for those who wish to consolidate previous experiences with shamanism or related methods. Francodrumming-1Completion of the programme provides a solid basis for more advanced work, and will also allow participants to continue their work autonomously with gained clarity and sense of purpose. The programme consists of two workshops, which can also be attended independently.

The workshop includes: shamanic voyages, trance dance, use of the sacred circle, energy work, planetary chants, rituals and various opportunities for integrating shamanic work with ordinary reality.

Advanced Week: The Voyage Through The Zodiac

During this second week participants will experience the whole spectrum of astroshamanic and planetary archetypes, retrieving and transforming blocked energies, strengthening the relationship with their multi-dimensional self and life Intent.

This workshop is designed for people who intend to employ shamanism both for themselves and in their practice with others.

The programme has been life changing. It's really that simple. And for that I'd like to extend an enormous hug of gratitude to Franco for pioneering this work, for living it and sharing it. And I hope that in less easy moments that hug will be there to remind you of the way that these tools, this work and you touch people. Thank you.

Previous programme participant

I worried at first that the course would conflict with my spiritual beliefs. In fact it not only complemented but enhanced my knowing.
