Findhorn Foundation Training in Astroshamanism

26 February – 13 March 2011
with Franco Santoro

I invite you to join the ninth edition of the Findhorn Foundation Training in Astroshamanism, in Cluny Hill College (Moray, Scotland), or any other astroshamanic training module or upcoming workshop in 2011 (click here for a calendar of events).

Among the wide range of workshops available in the healing marketplace, including all the events I offer, the Findhorn Foundation Training in Astroshamanism (26 February – 13 March 2011) is the longest and most comprehensive all-in-one astroshamanic course. The training consists of two workshops, which can also be attended independently, which means that you can also attend only the first week, from 26 February to 4 March 2011.

Since the first edition in 2003, this training has received abundant praises from those who have attended it. The course is always unique and in close alignment with the present, never repeating itself twice. Hence some participants often take it every year.

If you resonate with the themes of astroshamanism and holistic awareness, I can assure you that this training will provide a precious opportunity to explore them experientially.

This edition of the training is particularly special since its new format allows me to work more closely with each participant, exploring and promoting their unique potentials, and offering individual consultations.

I believe that these two weeks can offer support and clarity regarding your potential, providing opportunities to ground it in everyday life, both for your benefit and as part of your service to the environment.

The training is also an ideal opportunity to get to the root of critical issues, healing blocks and energy loops, so that you can step with power into a brighter and more fulfilling experience of life.

These years have been described by many light-workers and spiritual leaders as a crucial time for setting in motion major shifts in human consciousness.

In particular, within the astroshamanic network we regard this time as an opportunity to increase the capacity to master intentions and taking decisive steps for creating the new reality we wish for ourselves and the world.
This implies stepping into the richness of our experience on Earth, letting go of decaying paradigms based on separation and gaining a solid awareness of the connection with the web of life.

I would be most delighted and motivated to work more directly with you during this training or other astroshamanic training modules this year, such as the Astroshamanic Practitioner Training, the Operative Training in Astroshamanism and the Findhorn Foundation Training in Astroshamanic Trance Dance (15-28 October 2011)

Please feel free to contact me at if you have any question or wish to receive more details on any aspect of astroshamanic work. We can also meet or arrange a telephone (Skype) appointment, if you wish to explore which workshop or course is the right thing for you.

Findhorn Foundation Training in Astroshamanism - Basic Details

The Findhorn Foundation Training in Astroshamanism (26 February - 13 March 2011) provides an in-depth experience of contemporary shamanism, holistic awareness and spiritual healing research in alignment with the principles of inner listening, co-creation with nature and service that characterise the Findhorn community.

Participants in the training are encouraged and supported in opening, discovering and implementing the relationship with their inner guidance and soul’s purpose. This also involves releasing blocks and retrieving hidden potentials, learning to use shamanic healing in their life and relationship with others.

The training also implies exploring alternative realities, non-ordinary perception, ecstatic realms and spirit guides, yet with a sensible and down-to-earth attitude, aimed at ensuring a healthy integration with everyday life.

The training takes place in a parte of the year, aligned with the transition from Pisces to Aries, Winter to Spring, is most ideal for voyaging into alternative realms and integrating the related visions through the grounding force of spring.

The training is designed for newcomers as well as for those who wish to consolidate previous experiences with shamanism or related methods. Franco runs these two weeks not only with the aim to teach basic and advanced techniques, and how they can be applied according to your individual potential, but also to provide participants with the support thereafter. Hence the training is aimed to allow participants to continue their work autonomously with gained clarity and sense of purpose, while also giving them a solid basis for more advanced work and training options within astroshamanism or on other holistic healing paths.

A vital benefit of all astroshamanic training modules is that they are designed for you as an individual, both at an ordinary and multidimensional level. The courses also involve individual work, aimed at helping to get the most from the healing work.

The astrological chart and its experiential applications are another most unique and effective aid in all astroshamanic trainings, and constitute a constant reference throughout the courses. The group element also plays a central healing role, and if you have attended other astroshamanic workshops you will be familiar with the amazing connections that the group experience.

Completion of the training provides a solid basis for more advanced work. It is also aimed to allow participants to continue their work autonomously with gained clarity and sense of purpose.

The training consists of two workshops, which can also be attended independently.

The training is held by Franco Santoro and a team of experienced members of our Astroshamanic Faculty.

 Comments on the Training:
This is an all-comprehensive two-week training aimed at providing a basic experience and understanding of neo-shamanism, astroshamanism, and one’s soul’s path. Since the first edition of the training in 2003 more than 300 participants have benefited from this course (see a selection of comments below).
“A very well crafted programme, beautifully balanced, finely taught out and excellent value for money.”
“It has been wonderful and heart-opening. Doors for me have opened about being in relationship in a new way and also my views on spirit guides have deepened in a very valuable way, and my inner sense of why I am on this planet and what I am to do here has become clearer.”
“This workshop brought me back to my true passion and feeling of being fully alive.”
“I gained a much wider and brighter picture of who I am, which I know I will continue to connect with.”
“My awareness has grown immensely. I have found clarity regarding my true intention on earth and the tools to mani-fest it”
“Franco is an excellent communicator and facilitator. He tailors the programme according to the nature of the participants, blending group dynamics with shamanic proc-esses.”
“Franco is a gifted man with wisdom and sense of hu-mour. He is down-to-earth.”
“Franco is a wise man who knows his work well, dedi-cated, inspiring, gentle, passionate, welcoming, available and open to questions.”
“I would like to affirm that this has been a mile-stone on my life’s journey. Thank you.”
“I worried at first that the course would conflict with my spiritual beliefs. In fact it not only complemented but en-hanced my knowing.”
“I found most valuable to learn the techniques and hear the explanations first hand from a practitioner who was open, serious and light-hearted, knowledgeable, and very capable of creating and supporting the environment and energies we were working with.”
“The programme has been life changing. It’s really that simple. And for that I’d like to extend an enormous hug of gratitude to Franco for pioneering this work, for living it and sharing it. And I hope that in less easy moments that hug will be there to remind you of the way that these tools, this work and you touch people. Thank you.”
“I am very happy to have done this programme – very much right timing. It has enabled me to make important connections. It has put me back in touch with my imagina-tion. It has been healing. It has been brilliantly focalised. I thank Franco and the Findhorn Foundation. I thank my guidance.”
