Simon Chamberlain is a shamanic practitioner, drum maker, teacher and founder of the Nordic School of Shamanism. His qualifications, training, experience and teaching cover a wide range of subjects including shamanism, psychology, neuroscience, hypnotherapy, counselling, mentoring, martial arts and naturopathy. He taught psychology, criminal psychology and neuroscience for many years as well as mentoring victims of crime. He is a faculty member of The Sacred Trust and teaches some of their courses in Norway.
Originally from the UK, Simon now lives in Norway on a small farm overlooking the magnificent Sognefjord. His focus is now to increase his dedication to Nature and integrate shamanic principles more closely into his lifestyle. He believes shamanic education should be available to as many people as possible and that a shamanic way of being can bring great benefits to individuals, modern society and the world in general.
We live on a small farm in Ytre Sogn on the banks of the magnificent Sognefjord in Norway, a well known fjord that stretches inland for over 200 km and is in parts 6 km wide. Mountains line the banks of the fjord and snow can often be seen on their tops.and this is where most of the training takes place.
We have a small but developing vegetable garden and enjoy seasonal fruit and berries as well as foraged mushrooms directly from the forest.
You will be surrounded by beautiful Nature and stunning landscapes, with Nature Spirits all around. From the old farm house to the powerful haunts of the forest, the place is here to enjoy while you immerse yourself in the work.
