My Buffalo Drum I created,
For my Journey Work.


Core Shamanism is my spiritual practice. It is based on a practice developed by Michael Harner. For me, it is a way to go deep within myself and with clear intention, discuss with my Power Animal or Teachers issues of my life. This going deep is referred to as a Shaman Journey. I’ve used Core Shamanism in some of my writings where some characters practice the method to help themselves and others. 

I have been blessed in my life to train under many great shamanic teachers including Michael Harner, Sandra Harner, and Sandra Ingerman.

I would encourage you to click on the links above “Core Shamanism” and “Sandra Ingerman” to learn more in-depth about Core Shamanism. I also highly recommend reading Michael Harner’s book: The Way Of The Shaman which can be found on the Core Shamanism website store.

Michael Harner has this to say about Core Shamanism:

“After having personally practiced shamanism, shamanic healing, and shamanic journeying for more than half a century, I can say that there is nothing I have encountered in reports of the spiritual experiences of saints, prophets, psychedelic drug experimenters, near death survivors, avatars and other mystics that is not commonly experienced when following classic journey methods using a drum.”
