This specialized two-year long program is ideal for those interested in deepening their personal and spiritual growth and further integrating shamanism into their lives, as well as those who wish to take shamanism into their professional practice and help others achieve their potential through this work.

The program offers students a combination of close personal mentorship, advanced shamanic training through courses and group work, as well as the opportunity to develop their counseling skills through supervised one-on-one work with fellow students. In this manner, students enjoy the distinct advantages that private shamanic counseling offers alongside the benefits of long-term systematic training in specialized shamanic techniques and practices.

In order to participate in the school, it is necessary to have completed Arvick Baghramian's Basic Workshop "Magic of Shamanism" in advance and to have been qualified by Arvick for the program.

Shamanic practices which students are introduced to such as: shamanic healing, communication with the spirits of nature and the elements of the weather, soul retrieval work, divination work, extraction healing, and advanced shamanic counseling.

Course modules focuses on: relationships, wealth and abundance, death, living and mortality, personal and professional self-realization. Program participants will learn how to work more effectively with shamanic journeys, ritual, ceremony and practices inspired by indigenous shamanic cultures, and how to bring shamanism into their lives with awareness, heart, responsibility and respect.

The training program consists of 6 modules of 4.5 days each, with consist of approximately 8-12 hours of work per day, along with ongoing personal supervision. Each meeting will cover a variety of topics and techniques, but the exact sequence and content will be determined by Arvick as the course progresses to best tailor the program to the specific needs of the group.

Unlike attending separate courses covering different topics of shamanic work, this program is designed to provide participants with structured continuity between workshops and ongoing personal mentorship throughout the learning process. Therefore, in addition to participating in the 6 workshop modules, each participant will be assigned homework and will be required to report back to Arvick on their work and progress between meetings (in English!). The total length of the program is 2 years, with 3 group meetings per year.

All meetings will take place at the Tu i Teraz center in Nowe Kawkowo. The meetings will be stationary, which means that the participants will be accommodated in the center for the entire duration of the classes. All workshops will be translated into Polish. While individual correspondence with Arvick outside the workshop will be in English.

Before joining the program, all participants should:

  1. take part in the workshop for beginners "The Magic of Shamanism" led by Arvick,
  2. read Arvick's book "The Magic of Shamanism"
  3. complete a short form (in English) stating your motivation and the reason for your interest in the programme.
  4. be qualified for the program by Arvick

Arvick Baghramian

I am a psychotherapist, specializing in the field of child sexual abuse and adult survivors, and a shamanic counsellor and teacher. It was my work with traumatized children and adult survivors of abuse that led me to shamanism, and to the other healing techniques I have been teaching and practicing since the 1980s. Working with this particularly traumatized group of people led me to the realization that traditional, verbal therapies, while effective up to a point, had serious shortcomings in helping people to truly heal their past hurts and traumas, transform their lives and become self-empowered. In my search for more powerful techniques I first became a Play Therapist, NLP practitioner and Eriksonian Hypnotist, and later a practitioner and teacher of Reiki, Conscious Breathing, and a visualization technique called the Personal Totem Pole.

I first learned about shamanism in the mid-90s, when I attended a workshop led by Jonathan Horwitz at the Scandinavian Center of Shamanic Studies. I trained with Jonathan for several years, and have been practicing and teaching shamanism around the world ever since. Although I run workshops in shamanism and train people to become shamanic counselors themselves, I have never ceased to be a student of shamanism, and since 2008 I have also studied extensively with Michael Harner’s Foundation for Shamanic Studies in the United States.

My therapeutic practice today draws on shamanism, Reiki, conscious breathing, visualization and art work. I draw on each of these techniques when needed, to help the people I work with to discover their true potential, heal, transform, and empower themselves. However, I consider myself to be primarily a shamanic counselor, and while I regularly run workshops of Reiki, Conscious breathing, and Personal Totem Pole, it is Shamanism as a spiritual and healing technique that I most rely on in my private practice. My teaching has taken me all over the world, and in the past twenty years I have been training not only in Spain, where I currently live, but also in the UK, the USA, Israel, the Scandinavian countries, New Zealand and Poland.

In 2007, my book The Magic of Shamanism, was published in the UK by Book Guid. A second edition in English (paper and ebook) was later published by Guild Publications, along with the Spanish translation of the book. The Magic of Shamanism is also now available in Polish.

I also developed the therapeutic game Revelations, designed to facilitate communication between children and their parents, teachers, or therapists, in a fun and exciting way. The game was published in 2008 and is now available in English, Spanish, Hebrew, and Polish.
