Franco Santoro and his associates
offer a wide range of both basic and advanced training courses on holistic
spirituality, astroshamanism, experiential astrology, spiritual healing,
astroshamanic dance. These also include distant learning training module.
All our trainings are flexible and
adapted to each individual, according to their potentials and needs. We prefer
to have an interview or session with each candidate so as to assess together
what training format can be more beneficial. We usually suggest attending an
introductory workshop or a series of three individual sessions before
committing to a course or longer training. Trainings may involve individual
tuition, group modules and self-study distant learning.

THE OPERATIVE TRAINING IN
The Operative Training in
Astroshamanis is a complete system of teaching aimed at providing a deep
investigation and experience of our soul journey both in the inner and outer
life. The basic intent of the training is to foster the reawakening of our
original multidimensional nature, the development and implementation of our
authentic talents, the release of grievances based on the perception of
separation and the integration of our body, soul and mind
The Operative Training in
Astroshamanism consists of three independent stages of initiation and is
accompanied by specific literature and manuals. The First Basic Level
represents the first stage. This training comprises 144 hours of teaching with
a flexible structure that can be tailored to fit individual needs and
situations, including a home-study course. Previous participation to an
astroshamanic workshop, or a cycle of three individual sessions, are a
prerequisite for attendance.
Before deciding to join the
Training, applicants will thoroughly examine their current life situation,
purpose and learning potentials in order to verify whether this step can truly
serve them. Entry into the Training also requires that intuition or specific
individual guidance (received through a shamanic journey, vision or dream)
proves that this work is appropriate.
The programme of the Training will
include significant experiences with shamanic states of consciousness as well
as relevant opportunities to ground the work in ordinary reality. Participants
will learn a wide range of shamanic techniques and directly explore the
astroshamanic cosmology as it is reflected in their inner and outer life. They
will receive initiation in specific healing and ceremonial practices in
accordance with each Sector of the Sacred Circle, integrating their shamanic
experiences with information drawn from astrology and other esoteric sources.
The First Basic Level covers the
following areas: astroshamanic voyaging and cosmology, Sacred Circle, Intent
and Function, Sacred Cone Work (release practices, basic ritual, shamanic
extraction), Spirit Guides, Totem Spirits, shamanic forms and detectors, spirit
medicines, sacred tools, astrodrama, trance dance, totemic postures, dreamwork,
glossolalia, exploration of the 12 Sectors, astroshamanic chants and planetary
scales, an outline of astrology and its application to astroshamanism, elements
of astroshamanic healing and soul retrieval.
The curriculum of the Training has a
specific structure and there is a certain amount of work to do. At the end of
the journey, the energies of each of the 12 Sectors and four Directions of the
Sacred Circle will all be explored. The First Level has to do with building a
foundation for the spiritual journey and reawakening of our multidimensional
nature. According to astroshamanism, the existence of a stable container is
essential for the energies beyond ordinary perception not to get lost or
misused. The information and tools that are shared in the Training serve this
For the first lessons the work is
preparatory. After this initial stage, the Trainee can start the exploration of
the 12 Sectors and four Directions. One of the strategic purposes of the
journeys in the Sectors is to activate tools of power, develop potentials,
release grievances, make agreements with Spirit Guides, planetary forces, Totem
Spirits, etc. and recall significant lost memories.
The practices and exercises related
to the Sectors are devised to accompany you on a quest for treasures and powers
that lie dormant within. This process strategically unfolds through
recognising, retrieving and expressing each of the 12 basic archetypes (Totem
Spirits) through our physical as well as emotional, mental and spiritual body.
This work involves learning a multidimensional language and requires patience,
constancy and attention mixed with sacred playfulness and adventure.

Astroshamanic Practitioner Training (APT)
A formation process aimed at training individuals to
become proficient astroshamanic practitioners. The APT consists of a general
charter applied to all trainees, and a specialised curriculum based on specific
individual talents. The APT includes three independent units: a two-year
Foundation Course, a two-year Accreditation Course and a one-year Practice
Training with the direct supervision of Franco Santoro.
The Operative Training in Astroshamanism, which can
also be taken during the Foundation Course, is a requirement for participation,
as well as an interview and a series of introductory sessions with Franco.
Astroshamanic formation is also aimed at training shamanic practitioners who
wish to draw inspiration from this work, integrate it with other methods,
support other lineages and traditions, or develop their own method, without
necessarily becoming astroshamanic practitioners.
