After centuries of misunderstanding, animism is taking its rightful place as one of the great spiritual systems for awakening, healing, and transforming our lives. Animism provides a pathway of hope and practical action, allowing us to build the inner resources and access sacred guidance that support us in becoming a positive and effective agent of change. It also helps us cultivate more alignment and a natural sense of sacred connection to the world around us. In short, animism can bring us home to our highest self and assist humanity with transcending self-defeating patterns and fostering a soul-powered way of living on Mother Earth that truly benefits all.
This 13-month training is a Tree Of Life initiation to living an animist life in our modern world. You will connect with the ancestors of your own cultural background and lineage, assemble 13 power stones or power objects, learn self-healing rituals, connect with elementals and spirit guides, and more. At the end of this process you will have developed good working relationships with your guides and assembled the tools you need to answer the question “Why am I here?”, know your unique gifts and how you can bring them into the world.
In-person training is one full day each month for 13 months on a Saturday, plus self-study and practice assignments with unlimited email support, one phone or Skype support session per month, if needed, and reduced rates for shamanic healing sessions.
Prerequisite is the ability to do shamanic trance journeys to drumbeat, which is taught in our workshop The Shamanic Journey, or similar journeying experience. A free question-and-answer session about the yearlong training programs follows each introductory workshop.
This training is also available as a distance option for those who are unable to commute to Hope, BC. The teachings and practice suggestions offer training in Practical Animism and Ancestor honouring. Offered every other year as a group training over the course of 13 months, or one-on-one, starting any time. For more details and to register, please contact us.
After completion of the Year 1 training above, or with the necessary pre-requisites, you have the option to continue into a second year apprenticeship and learn shamanic healing rituals and ceremonies to bring the gift of shamanic healing to others, including:
The training is over five weekends, Saturday and Sunday, roughly two months apart to allow for practice and case-study work between classes. Some classes may have an evening ceremony on the Saturday. Classes build on each other and must be taken in sequence. Case study reports must be handed in prior to next class.
There is no distance option for the apprenticeship.

Ulrike is an authentic, grounded and humble teacher. I found her to be truly devoted to teaching Animism in a way to positively impact our lives and the planet. She teaches from a place that facilitates independence, self growth and self reliance, rather than dependence on a teacher or spiritual guru. Ulrike has a unique ability to translate animistic wisdom so that it is accessible to anyone who is looking for personal and spiritual growth.
I’ve known Ulrike for several years now, and studied with her in her Shamanic Living year-long training. This was an invaluable program in understanding and practicing modern day shamanism. In our monthly training I developed strong journeying skills, forged relationships with my ancestral spirit guides, built a power bundle of sacred stones and objects, and birthed a spirit rattle. Ulrike’s compassionate nature and skilled teaching helped me to discover my unique strengths and connect to my highest potential. I have grown and changed immeasurably over the course of this program, and I highly recommended it to anyone seeking shamanic training. It is a powerful, life-changing path.Read More
