Other Experts Teaching Peak States Related Courses
We are fortunate that occasionlly various experts in related fields either teach courses for us, or teach courses that are relevant and useful for our students and certified therapists.
Training in shamanism can be useful for therapists working with peak states of consciousness and healing. In particular, an affiliate of the Institute, Wes Gietz in Canada occasionally teaches a course that teaches shamanism from a peak states perspective. In the USA, Tom Brown Jr. teaches an excellent series of classes containing the same or similar material. We highly recommend these teachers and their material.

Shamanism and Peak States: Awareness - the Journey of the Healer
Taught by Wes Gietz
‘Awareness is the doorway to the world of spirit’ Stalking Wolf
This course is designed primarily for graduates of ISPS training to teach them the shamanic power and techniques of native healers. As Wes points out in his chapter in Peak States of Consciousness Volume 2, giving people tools to rapidly transform themselves without the years of self mastery and practice required of more traditional methods is potentially a problem. It is also a limiting factor for those wanting to go onto advanced ISPS training as the ability to navigate alternate dimensions and ways of seeing might not have been developed.
A variety of Native American techniques will be used in the training to support the development of the healer. In particular an expanded sense of physical awareness will be used to transition from physical to spiritual awareness. In so doing, participants will create their own ‘good medicine’ place.
Wes has studied and practised natural skills and beliefs for over forty years, with pauses as required by the necessities of love and life. He has been taught by Tom Brown Jr. and Native teachers the skills of survival and living, awareness, and philosophy, the ceremonies of daily life, and the ceremonies and responsibilities of the sweat lodge. He honors them by using these ways and keeping them for the generations yet to be born, and has taught them in workshops and at gatherings since 1993. He also worked extensively in the early days with Grant developing ISPS techniques.
