FoxFire Institute is a Shamanic-based School and Spiritual Community Founded in 1988.

Now celebrating our 32nd year!

Our school offers programs in:

  • Cross-cultural Experiential Shamanism
  • Enneagram Studies
  • Native American Medicine
  • Integrative Medicine
  • Spiritual Crisis and Emergence
  • Professionalism, Ethics and Safety
  • Mythology, Storytelling & Circle Work
  • Continuing Education for Shamanic Practitioners

We also offer a professional qualification as a Certified Shamanic Practitioner® after completing a five-year training based on the subjects above.

As a community, we are people trying to live in a spiritual way in a modern world. We have created an environment where people that feel called to be of service can learn, heal and grow personally as well as professionally. Shamanism informs and guides the work that we do in our respective fields. We work as artists, teachers, in medicine, design and business.
