The Art and Practice of Shamanic Healing:
A Three-Year Professional Training and Initiation

September 2019 – April 2022

The “3Y” is a comprehensive shamanic practitioner training that is designed for individuals who are called to provide spiritual healing and facilitate spiritual well-being on behalf of others. Those who feel drawn to working exclusively as shamanic healers, as well as those who feel drawn to offering shamanic healing in concert with one or more complementary healing modalities (such as allopathic medicine, functional or holistic medicine, psychiatry, psychology, psychotherapy, acupuncture, energy medicine, one or more bodywork modalities, etc.) are equally welcome to apply. 

The arc of the 3Y curriculum is designed to unfold with increasing complexity over time, which affords participants the opportunity to gather and cultivate their unique medicine gradually throughout the training. Thus, during the course of this immersive training, participants can expect to develop a sophisticated array of shamanic skills, clarify and refine their areas of particular affinity as shamanic healers, and receive transformative shamanic initiations and empowerments – all within the safety of a strong, consistent practice container.

A Note from Julie

Dear Prospective 3Y Applicant,

By way of writing to you directly, I’m formally casting the circle for the 2019–2022 3Y cohort. I’ve been sensing the qualities of this circle-to-be for months, and I so look forward to meeting the people who will enrich, enliven, and shape it with their unique medicine. If you feel that you’re one of these people, I wholeheartedly invite you to apply to the 3Y now.

The purpose of the 3Y is to provide you with the opportunity to hone your craft as a shamanic healer within the embrace of a strong, stable container. I often describe the 3Y as a shamanic incubator whose function is to turn out practitioners who are thoroughly trained in the shamanic healing arts and who will go on to share their knowledge and gifts in the world in myriad ways. What makes the 3Y circle shine is when there is a shared level of commitment and wholeheartedness among all of the participants.

In light of that, I would like you to know that I’m available to answer any questions you may have about the 3Y once you’ve read through the information below. I appreciate that it’s a significant commitment, and I want to ensure that you have all the information you need before applying. To that end, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly via my landline at (303) 417–1189 or via email in the weeks to come. It will be my pleasure to talk with you about the possibility of you joining the 3Y.

With love,
Julie

The Art of Divination

Accurate divination lies at the heart of effective shamanic healing. Through extensive practice during the course of the 3Y, you will become fluent in the language of your helping spirits, and refine your ability to receive and convey clear, reliable, and insightful guidance to your clients. Furthermore, you will hone your skills as a shamanic diagnostician, determining by way of diagnostic divination the presence of shamanic illness in your clients as well as the steps for remedying it.

Restoring Lost Power: Soul Retrieval and Power Animal Retrieval

From a shamanic point of view, our basic sense of well-being is a function of our connection to our spiritual power. When that connection becomes compromised or severed, we become vulnerable to spiritual illnesses such as soul loss and power loss. During this segment of the 3Y, you will learn the symptoms and ramifications of power loss, the remedies for restoring lost power by way of Soul Retrieval and Power Animal Retrieval, and preventative practices for continually strengthening your connection to your spiritual power.

Becoming Transparent to the Divine: Merging and Transfiguration

Merging and Transfiguration are classical shamanic practices for becoming fully permeable to the divine for the purpose of bringing through healing spiritual light. You will begin by enlisting the support of a Gatekeeper and Body Protector, and proceed with an exploration of the Spirit Gates, which are the portals of communication with non-ordinary reality. With that foundation firmly in place, you will learn the shamanic healing techniques of Merging and Transfiguration, as well as the myriad applications of these powerful shamanic healing rituals.

Removing Foreign Energy and Energetic Enmeshment: Extraction, Cord Cutting, and Curse Unraveling

During this portion of the 3Y, you will learn how to diagnose and remedy foreign energy, energetic cords, and intentional and unintentional curses. You will also discover the role that negative thoughtforms play in compounding shamanic illness, as well as the difference between feeling and sending emotions. Finally, you will experience the process of becoming inspirited as a means for prevention and protection against foreign energy of all varieties.

Psychopomp and Compassionate Depossession: Shamanic Healing for the Dying and the Dead

Shamans tend to the spiritual well-being of the living, the dying, and the dead. As such, it is essential for shamanic healers to possess the appropriate skills and sensitivity for working with those who are actively in the dying process, as well as the souls of those who have already passed and are in need of shamanic support. Therein lies the focus of this segment: to learn how to guide those who are actively passing to a peaceful crossing, and to provide support to those who have failed to cross over successfully and are in need of compassionate assistance in order to do so.

Healing Wounds from Other Lifetimes

Memories, fears, and unresolved issues from other places and times can accompany us into our current lives, making it difficult for us to be fully present in our current circumstances. During the 3Y, you will learn how to revisit the other lives of your clients for the purpose of uncovering and resolving underlying issues and wounds from other lifetimes, freeing them from those past entanglements.

Partnering with the Natural World

This exploration will provide you with an opportunity to discover and cultivate relationships with your allies in the natural world, including the benevolent spirits of the elements, trees, stones, plants, flowers, the sun, the moon, the stars, the guardians of the land, etc. You will experience rituals for visioning, discharging, grieving, and empowerment that you will undertake in partnership with your new allies, and that can be easily adapted to meet your clients’ own needs.

The Alchemy of Your Unique Medicine

The 3Y is a unique practice container that is dedicated to safety, trust, depth, transformation, and spiritual initiation. The power of the work that transpires during the training is determined by the level of commitment among the participants, as well as the degree of safety that is cultivated within the circle. The 3Y is intended to serve as an incubator for shamanic practitioners in training who are gradually honing their skills and gathering their medicine within the safe chalice of a dedicated circle. You are not expected to know how to be a shamanic healer in order to join the 3Y; that is what the 3Y is designed to teach you. You simply need to know that you are called to this path of healing, and then you need to be willing to commit to it wholeheartedly.

The Client-Practitioner Relationship

As with any healing modality, the sense of safety that a client feels when working with a shamanic healer is critical to the outcome of the session. Safety is generated by strong boundaries as well as the experience of being held in one’s process with compassion and care. In order for you as a practitioner to be fully present in those ways, you must be clear about your boundaries, committed to your own self-care, and skilled in the art of navigating the intimate relationship between a client and a healer. This module will enable you to take a close look at both sides of the client-practitioner relationship, with the intention of bringing awareness, clarity, and thoughtfulness to the tending of that chalice.

The Art of Divination

Accurate divination lies at the heart of effective shamanic healing. Through extensive practice during the course of the 3Y, you will become fluent in the language of your helping spirits, and refine your ability to receive and convey clear, reliable, and insightful guidance to your clients.

The Pillars That the 3Y is Built Upon

The Residential Retreat Schedule

Throughout the course of the 3Y, there are six weeklong in-person retreats at the Sunrise Ranch Spiritual Retreat Center in Loveland, Colorado.

Here is when the retreats will take place:

First Retreat: Thursday, September 19 – Thursday, September 26, 2019
Second Retreat: Monday, April 13 – Monday, April 20, 2020
Third Retreat: Monday, September 14 – Monday, September 21, 2020
Fourth Retreat: Monday, April 12 – Monday, April 19, 2021
Fifth Retreat: Monday, September 13 – Monday, September 20, 2021
Sixth Retreat: Monday, April 11 – Monday, April 18, 2022

Each of the residential retreats will follow the same basic schedule:

Arrival Day

Check-in: 2pm – 5pm
Dinner: 5:30pm – 6:30pm
First Session: 7pm – 9pm

Full Session Days

Breakfast: 7:30am – 8:30am
Morning Session: 9am – Noon
Lunch: Noon – 12:30pm
First Afternoon Session: 2pm – 3:30pm
Afternoon Tea: 3:30pm – 4pm
Second Afternoon Session: 4pm – 6pm
Dinner: 6pm – 6:30pm
Evening Session: 7pm – 9pm

Departure Day

Breakfast: 7:30am – 8:30am
Final Session: 9:30am – Noon (please be advised that you must vacate your room prior to joining the morning session on the departure days)
Lunch: Noon – 12:30pm

Approximately every four months, the entire circle will gather virtually for a daylong practice intensive facilitated by Julie. If your time zone permits you to, you will be invited to join the gathering live. However, if your time zone doesn’t allow you to participate live, you will be able to watch a recording of the gathering. Please note that participants will not be expected to be in front of their computers all day. The virtual practice day schedules will consist of a combination of lecture, Q&A, group dialogue, and shamanic practices. Participants will log off periodically throughout each day for designated periods of time in order to engage in the practices, as well as to take breaks. The dates for the eight virtual practice days will be announced at the beginning of the training.

One of the features that distinguishes the 3Y is the combination of in-person residential retreats with an in-depth curriculum that participants follow from home. The At-Home Curriculum consists of a wide variety of daily and weekly shamanic practices intended to further enrich the participants’ learning. To that end, the daily and weekly “Fieldwork” is delivered to the circle every other week by way of email and Facebook. The Fieldwork is comprised of written instructions and/or an audio recording that Julie generates containing instructions for the practices for the upcoming two-week period. Participants are expected to commit to remaining current with the daily and weekly Fieldwork throughout the entire 3Y, as the curriculum is progressive and builds upon itself over time.

Before the conclusion of each of the in-person residential retreats, the circle will be divided into small practice pods (generally consisting of 3 or 4 participants each) that will meet monthly until the circle reconvenes for the next retreat. Each pod will then have the opportunity to schedule their monthly pod meetings for the intervening period until the next retreat begins. (The pods will meet in person and/or via Skype or Zoom, depending on where each pod member lives.) The monthly “Fieldwork” that the pods undertake consists of written instructions and/or an audio recording that Julie generates containing instructions for the monthly pod practice. At the start of the pod meetings, the pod members read the written instructions and/or listen to the audio recording in order to receive the instructions for their time together. The remainder of the pod meetings are spent engaging in intensive shamanic practices designed to help participants continue building their shamanic capacity and developing their shamanic skills.

What Participants from Current and Previous 3Ys Would Like You to Know

“Studying with Julie M. Kramer in her three-year professional shamanic training program has been a life-changing experience.  From the very first day of class until now, almost two years into it, it amazes me that I keep becoming happier and happier with the entire program.  Julie is a gifted and masterful teacher and an astonishing healer. She creates a strong, stable container which supports the depth of the teachings and healings, as well as the vastness of the personal growth that occurs.  The structure of the program has been very important to help me feel supported and guided the whole way, and having the small groups to practice with monthly has been essential for building my skills and confidence.  The community is also a strong part of the beauty and power of this program; we are deepening into our paths together and supporting each other, and there are the glimmers coming through of our future shared shamanic work.  I decided to study with Julie having never met her in person, but now that I know her, I can assure those of you who may be considering doing the same that she is exactly how she presents herself  over video or through her writing – generous, honest, full of integrity,  humble, open, curious, and kind.  I have learned so much, grown so much, experienced immense personal healing along the way, and am so honored and grateful to be part of this program and community.”

Nicole Doorish, New York, NY, 2017–2019 3Y

“The deep and abiding love Julie has for teaching and for engaging in this exploration is the heart of the 3Y training.  I have never witnessed such an experienced practitioner and teacher arrive in known territory with such humility, grace, and patience the way Julie does.  I am so grateful that my personal relationships and my shamanic practice are now entrained to this posture.  Whatever you think the future might hold for you with regard to your unfolding shamanic path, being in this circle that is held with such strength, skill, and trust is healing in and of itself.  If a shamanic calling is in alignment with your life’s path, I wholeheartedly recommend that you join the 3Y training in order to learn the art of sovereign collaboration and healing with the benevolent unseen realms.”

Katie Poinier, Seattle, WA, 2017–2019 3Y

“During a beautiful dream, I was called to seek a shamanic teacher of the utmost integrity to deepen my shamanic practice so that I could bring myself fully forward as a shamanic healer. Gratefully, I discovered Julie’s introductory workshop and within the first day knew I wanted to attend the 3Y program. Quite simply, Julie and this program have changed my life. I feel deeply held and supported by the container woven by Julie. Her heart pours into every part of the program, and her ability to articulate the seen and unseen worlds is unparalleled. She is a loving and fearless shamanic practitioner and teacher who provides practical, credible, and comprehensive instruction to her students. If you feel called to explore or deepen your work as a healer, and you have the opportunity to participate in this program, know that your life, and your heart, will be forever changed in the most profound and beautiful ways.”

Heather L. Porter, Denver, CO, 2017–2019 3Y

“Doing Julie’s three-year professional shamanic training has been a true blessing and Joy in my Life. Julie’s integrity as a teacher, guide, and HUMAN is both humbling and awe-inspiring to witness and experience first hand.Her love and connection to the spirit world as well as HUMANITY is honest and real. The sacredness for ALL that she carries within her moves through our circle, creating a chalice where absolute trust, safety, and love are able to live, blossom, and thrive. In our shamanic training with Julie, we laugh, we cry, we question and discuss, we witness, we dance, we sing, we drum, and we bless and are blessed. I now, more and more, can live life with my higher self truly in the driver’s seat, all the while seeing, hearing, feeling, and witnessing the magic and mystery of all of the worlds unfold and open.”

A. A., London, England, 2017–2019 3Y

“The 3Y has been one of the most healing and empowering experiences of my life. It has allowed me to begin working as a shamanic practitioner and I have gained a close new circle of beloved practitioner friends. Julie teaches with extraordinary skill, insight, and care. I highly recommend this course!”

Matthew Tenzin, Boulder, CO, 2017–2019 3Y

“Julie is one of the most gifted and eloquent teachers of contemporary shamanism. Her 3Y training offers a deep dive into learning the skills needed to become a shamanic practitioner of heart, integrity, and compassion. The healing practices learned in her program are a missing link in both modern life and modern health-care systems.”

Erin Love, Boulder, CO, 2012-2015 3Y

“Julie brings a level of professionalism into the 3Y training that is impeccable. I have learned how to bring this beautiful spiritual work into my profession as a psychologist. The personal growth was profound and continues to inform my personal and professional life.”

Olga M. Vera, PhD, Boulder, CO, 2012-2015 3Y

“The 3Y training was a phenomenal journey of the heart. Julie’s mentorship was profound, compassionate, and fully informed by her own deep connection with her helping spirits. Not only did we learn shamanic techniques so that we may help others, but the very act of practicing these skills was transformative and has helped to heal many of my own wounds. I highly recommend this training.”

Amy K., Boulder, CO, 2012-2015 3Y

“I entered the 3Y not having clear expectations. What I knew was that it felt right to be a part of the training, and that it would become evident why as time passed. What came to fruition over the course of time was a journey of a lifetime. A journey that has helped to ground me and expand my view of working with the unseen world to assist in healing at a soul level. Through doing so, I have witnessed my life transform, as well as the lives of the other beauties who took the training alongside me.”

Rose, New York, 2012-2015 3Y

“As a holistic nutritional counselor who has been on a decades-long personal and professional quest to experience and share transformational healing modalities that are truly life-changing, I can wholeheartedly say that Julie’s 3Y training has finally quenched my thirst. Julie is a master shamanic practitioner and teacher, as well as one of the most principled healing professionals I have ever worked with. If you have the opportunity to study with Julie, take it.”

Shaya Mercer, Bellingham, WA, 2012-2015 3Y

“I was thoroughly trained in shamanic healing techniques. This included practicing with the amazing community that was our group. I also grew immeasurably through all the practice sessions I received, all the loving support from Julie, and my own ongoing effort and dedication. This is for those who are tired of piecemeal weekend snippets and who desire thoroughness and community.”

Karyn, Boulder, CO, 2012-2015 3Y

“Dear Prospective 3Y Student,
You are in for a life-changing, transformative, plumb-the-depths journey into the discovery of your True Self and how that will manifest out into the world. Before Julie’s introductory shamanic journeying workshop, I had never done a single shamanic journey. Just over three years later, as a graduate of her 3Y shamanic practitioner training, I am taking my seat as a healer. If your helping spirits are guiding you to do this program, you are in for the best three years of your life! Blessings on your journey. The world needs you.”

Lakshmi Ananda, Evergreen, CO, 2012-2015 3Y

“The 3Y training was life-changing for me. I started the training with a deep interest in shamanic healing, but with little experience and confidence in my abilities. Julie’s method of teaching is patient, thorough, devoted, and present – she created a very safe space for us to be truly vulnerable and learn from the core of our being. Throughout the course of the training, I developed my skills and confidence, and closed the training by launching my own healing practice. I am incredibly grateful to Julie for her guidance, wisdom, and support. I highly recommend the 3Y training!”

Esther, Boulder, CO, 2012-2015 3Y

“I yearned to grow as a shamanic practitioner and in relationship with the spirit world under the tutelage of a seasoned practitioner and teacher, and this 3Y training filled that yearning. I grew in trust and depth personally, in relationship with others, and in the techniques of addressing spiritual illness and wellness. My heart is a new place to live in now, and this is the heart I share with others in my healing practice, my community, and my creativity. This is a precious jewel of a training with a teacher who exudes the essence of what is being taught and shared.”

Susan Feathers, Marblehead, MA, 2012-2015 3Y

What Participants from Current and Previous 3Ys Would Like You to Know

“Studying with Julie M. Kramer in her three-year professional shamanic training program has been a life-changing experience.  From the very first day of class until now, almost two years into it, it amazes me that I keep becoming happier and happier with the entire program.  Julie is a gifted and masterful teacher and an astonishing healer. She creates a strong, stable container which supports the depth of the teachings and healings, as well as the vastness of the personal growth that occurs.  The structure of the program has been very important to help me feel supported and guided the whole way, and having the small groups to practice with monthly has been essential for building my skills and confidence.  The community is also a strong part of the beauty and power of this program; we are deepening into our paths together and supporting each other, and there are the glimmers coming through of our future shared shamanic work.  I decided to study with Julie having never met her in person, but now that I know her, I can assure those of you who may be considering doing the same that she is exactly how she presents herself  over video or through her writing – generous, honest, full of integrity,  humble, open, curious, and kind.  I have learned so much, grown so much, experienced immense personal healing along the way, and am so honored and grateful to be part of this program and community.”

Nicole Doorish, New York, NY, 2017–2019 3Y

“The deep and abiding love Julie has for teaching and for engaging in this exploration is the heart of the 3Y training.  I have never witnessed such an experienced practitioner and teacher arrive in known territory with such humility, grace, and patience the way Julie does.  I am so grateful that my personal relationships and my shamanic practice are now entrained to this posture.  Whatever you think the future might hold for you with regard to your unfolding shamanic path, being in this circle that is held with such strength, skill, and trust is healing in and of itself.  If a shamanic calling is in alignment with your life’s path, I wholeheartedly recommend that you join the 3Y training in order to learn the art of sovereign collaboration and healing with the benevolent unseen realms.”

Katie Poinier, Seattle, WA, 2017–2019 3Y

“During a beautiful dream, I was called to seek a shamanic teacher of the utmost integrity to deepen my shamanic practice so that I could bring myself fully forward as a shamanic healer. Gratefully, I discovered Julie’s introductory workshop and within the first day knew I wanted to attend the 3Y program. Quite simply, Julie and this program have changed my life. I feel deeply held and supported by the container woven by Julie. Her heart pours into every part of the program, and her ability to articulate the seen and unseen worlds is unparalleled. She is a loving and fearless shamanic practitioner and teacher who provides practical, credible, and comprehensive instruction to her students. If you feel called to explore or deepen your work as a healer, and you have the opportunity to participate in this program, know that your life, and your heart, will be forever changed in the most profound and beautiful ways.”

Heather L. Porter, Denver, CO, 2017–2019 3Y

“Doing Julie’s three-year professional shamanic training has been a true blessing and Joy in my Life. Julie’s integrity as a teacher, guide, and HUMAN is both humbling and awe-inspiring to witness and experience first hand.Her love and connection to the spirit world as well as HUMANITY is honest and real. The sacredness for ALL that she carries within her moves through our circle, creating a chalice where absolute trust, safety, and love are able to live, blossom, and thrive. In our shamanic training with Julie, we laugh, we cry, we question and discuss, we witness, we dance, we sing, we drum, and we bless and are blessed. I now, more and more, can live life with my higher self truly in the driver’s seat, all the while seeing, hearing, feeling, and witnessing the magic and mystery of all of the worlds unfold and open.”

A. A., London, England, 2017–2019 3Y

“The 3Y has been one of the most healing and empowering experiences of my life. It has allowed me to begin working as a shamanic practitioner and I have gained a close new circle of beloved practitioner friends. Julie teaches with extraordinary skill, insight and care. I highly recommend this course!”

Matthew Tenzin, Boulder, CO, 2017–2019 3Y

“Julie is one of the most gifted and eloquent teachers of contemporary shamanism. Her 3Y training offers a deep dive into learning the skills needed to become a shamanic practitioner of heart, integrity, and compassion. The healing practices learned in her program are a missing link in both modern life and modern health-care systems.”

Erin Love, Boulder, CO, 2012-2015 3Y

“Julie brings a level of professionalism into the 3Y training that is impeccable. I have learned how to bring this beautiful spiritual work into my profession as a psychologist. The personal growth was profound and continues to inform my personal and professional life.”

Olga M. Vera, PhD, Boulder, CO, 2012-2015 3Y
