Why Join? Who can Join? How you Join After you Join



















For now, ISC membership is open to people who have trained with Jonathan Horwitz and/or Annette Høst of the Scandinavian Center for Shamanic Studies. You also need to want to be part of the community and have a continuing interest in the practice of shamanism - whether in your daily life, with others, or the wider world.

As we are still in a relatively early stage, it is important to keep a focus to our circle. This is why we have decided to currently limit ourselves to people who have come from the SCSS, so we share a common approach. However, we are discussing how to widen our circle and welcome ways to look beyond it, to work with the wider future of shamanism and keep the channels of communication open.

If you have not trained with the SCSS but are interested in connecting with us, as a shamanic individual, group or organisation, please email Zara and tell us who you are, what you do and how you would like to connect with the ISC. We hope to extend membership to those outside the SCSS in the future.


Many practising shamanic colleagues and interested friends from past courses of the Scandinavian Center for Shamanic Studies may not have heard of the ISC. Their views and experience can enrich our circle and we want to reach anyone who wishes to be part of this community. If you know someone who might be interested and who trained with the SCSS, please tell them about this website.
