For over 35 years, world-renowned shaman, healer, and traditional ceremonial leader Brant Secunda has been leading programs around the globe. His teachings have helped thousands of people to connect with their inherent power and to walk a path of harmony, unifying soul and body.
Join one of our programs to inherit the ancient wisdom teachings shared with Brant and to explore the practices of pilgrimage, ceremony, and healing.
Shamanic teachings guide us on a path to sustainable harmony with not only all humans, but with each and every plant, animal, and spiritual entity that is a part of our world.
Uplift Your Soul
Our programs guide you through the process of uplifting your soul with daily practices and ceremonial experiences. Allow your soul to merge with the universe.

Harmony is inherent to nature and thus intrinsic to shamanism. Part of our life’s journey is to unify the 3 aspects of Body, Heart & Spirit. This unity allows us to function naturally.
Heal the World
Transform your actions in order to bring healing to yourself, your community and all that lives on Earth. In this way, each step you take on the path of life becomes a healing process.

Types of Programs
Seminars are a wonderful 1-day experience to connect with shamanism. You will gain a grounded understanding of what shamanism is and learn ancient tools to include in your daily life. These shorter events are also a wonderful way for those already on the shamanic path to reconnect with Brant Secunda and his teachings of Huichol culture.
During each seminar, Brant will present useful tools to embrace the spirit of nature and your inherent power as a human being. These teachings of Huichol Shamanism can provide you with a deeper understanding of the interwoven power of nature and can lead to a more fulfilling life. Seminars provide an opportunity to explore shamanism and Huichol culture in an easy-to-follow format integrated into a single day. Though seminars are shorter than many of our programs, they are a great way to take part in the shamanic circle.

Join us for a retreat to learn how to create a life of natural health and harmony. Ancient indigenous wisdom guides the retreat experience, manifesting a unique mix of village lifestyle and powerful pilgrimages and ceremonies. The retreat experience provides a template for shamanic practice in your daily life. By the end of a retreat, you will gain an understanding of how to integrate shamanism into all that is you. Each retreat location is carefully chosen for its unique natural environment and kakuyari — places of power.

An escape from the hectic and often disconnected modern world
Each year we offer journeys through some of the most spectacular places around the globe. We have journeyed through amazing places — Guatemala, Japan and New Zealand — with each location offering an opportunity to explore the amazing beauty of Mother Earth like never before. Join Brant Secunda to explore nature and revered sacred places in a way unlike any other.
In Japan, we traveled through Kyoto, Nara, Tokyo, Mount Fuji and Wakayama. At each place we visited sacred sites revered for thousands of years and wandered to countless remote lakes, mountains, waterfalls and hot springs. In New Zealand, we journeyed throughout the North Island, to Auckland, the Coromandel Peninsula, Lake Rotorua, Lake Taupo, Mount Taranaki and the Waitomo Caves region. There we soaked in hot spring rivers and hot water beaches. We went on pilgrimage to the sacred lakes and mountains and performed ceremonies to honor and connect with the spirit of the Pacific Ocean and this wonderful land.
Each location is hand selected by Brant Secunda for each Journey. These are rare events so space is extremely limited. Keep an eye out for our next journey and join us for an experience that you will keep with you for the rest of your life.
Our Journeys Offer:
Unforgettable experiences in some of the most beautiful places on Earth
Opportunities to journey with a small community in a very spiritual way

Conversations with Brant and other participants, ranging from deep spiritual teachings to simple personal connections and openness
For those looking to intensify their study of shamanism, we offer advanced study groups in the United States and Europe. Our East Coast, West Coast, and European study groups each meet 2–4 times each year in various locations. We have met in places such as Alaska, Sedona, Cape Cod, Florida, Hawaii, Mt. Shasta, Allgäu, Crete, Zion National Park and more.
The Advanced Study Groups are for those wanting to commit to the shamanic path and embrace the ancient Huichol culture as their own. Many members have been a part of this community for over 30 years, while others are constantly joining. It is recommended to first participate in a number of workshops and seminars before exploring options within our Advanced Study community.
