Shamanism is not regulated or licensed in most countries, so there is no formal certification process for becoming a shaman. In traditional shamanic cultures, a shaman would be recognized and initiated by the community, often through a series of tests or challenges. However, in modern western cultures, many people who practice shamanism may choose to receive training or certification from a teacher or organization in order to develop their skills and gain credibility with clients. At Embracing Shamanism we offer professional training in Shamanism providing credentials to secure insurance and be able to practise as shamanic practitioners and teachers dependent on training.
