The Shamans Path to Awakened Living

with Don Simmons

“The ones who live intentionally, compassionately and intuitively are the Shamans of the world.”

Shamanism has been around since the beginning of humanity. The ones who live intentionally, compassionately and intuitively are the Shamans of the world. Enriching and Awakening the lives of others while growing their relationship to the Great Spirit is their mission.


No one culture owns Shamanism; it belongs to and grows from your own personal calling to live authentically. Discover your journey through The Shamans Path, a unique awareness of the world where communication with the Great Spirits is simply a way of life.

The next Shamans Path to Awakened Living class begins February 2019.


Due to the overwhelming response to this class, more and more people are wanting to sign up. Instead of more people per class, you will now be able to choose either a Saturday or Sunday class with a limited number of students per class. Each class will be the same teaching and once you choose your class, either Saturday or Sunday, you will need to stay with that class. (*)

(* if you know you will miss a class, you will be able to either take the class on the opposite day than yours, or attend the make-up class to be held on the Sunday morning on the following month from 10am - 12:30pm. This will need to be confirmed with Don Simmons before you miss or change class. You are allowed only 3 changes for the year. You will still be required to pay for make up classes.)


This long form shamanic training prepares you to accept the Shaman’s Path as a way of living and gives you not only the foundation of shamanism but also the tools to discover for yourself the deeper life you can live by living as a modern day Shaman. There will be at least one SHAMANIC JOURNEY each session and more will be required for the interim between sessions.

Each class builds upon the last and each level is required for the next. You can take the classes one at a time with an upfront 3 month minimum commitment and stop anytime you like but you must start from the beginning and build up.


Sorry ~ No skipping allowed and no Drop Ins.  Includes a free CD download for Shamanic Practice

Cost: $675 for 10 months if paid in advance or $75/class with a 3 months minimum commitment ($225).
