I am delighted to announce that I have booked the Chi Center in Galisteo, New Mexico for an Advanced Shamanic Healing Practitioner Training. This training will be for two separate weeks during a year’s time. I never unpacked my workshop supplies from my last training before the pandemic, so I am ready. You can see photos and learn more about the Chi Center by visiting their website

I am so excited to be able to teach in person again. And the healing methods of shamanism are what we need at this time of so much personal challenge and planetary change. In this training, you will be gifted with my 40 years of experience teaching and working with clients. I have collected over 10,000 case studies of the amazing results of shamanic healing work.

Imagine being able to dance and sing together. Share meals and wonderful conversations with each other making friends for life. And the joy of working in nature and performing ceremonies together is something my soul has been missing. I wonder if you are missing these deep strong community connections too.

The first session of the course will be taught April 21-27, 2024.

All sessions must be attended during these six days.  

In this first session of the training, you will learn the material I teach in Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light, Extraction of Pain and Illnesses, and also a training in Death and Dying.

The second session of the course will be taught September 15-20, 2024.

Again, all sessions must be attended. And both weeks are mandatory for this year-long training.  During this week you will experience my entire 5-Day Soul Retrieval Training.

Our days will start at 10:00 am and end around 9:30 pm with breaks during the day. I like to have a long break in the afternoon so people can rest and absorb the beauty of the land, the pond, and the amazing ancient trees.

For this Advanced Shamanic Healing Practitioner Training, you need the prerequisite of a full course on Shamanic Journeying including divination work and power animal retrievals.

I do plan on teaching a Teacher Training after the Practitioner Training and those of you who show promise with the work will get first choice to apply for my Two-Year Teacher Training.

Tuition is $700 for each week and lodging and meals range from $1140 to $1320, depending on the type of room you get.

For questions, more information, and an application, please email Sylvia Edwards at Please include your full name and email address.

Please only apply if you are planning to be a shamanic practitioner and take this work into the world. It is not a training to take for personal healing. It is a professional training to learn how to be a shamanic practitioner working from your highest place of integrity while being a hollow bone and vessel for the divine spirits who perform the healing work for our clients. 

The application deadline is December 15, 2023.
