> February 3, 2018
> It is with great sadness that we inform you that Michael Harner,
> Founder of the FSS and originator of Core Shamanism, transitioned
> early in the morning of February 3.
> He was supported in the days prior to his passage by his loving wife

> world and on to the next.
> We expect that there will be a celebration of Michael's life in the
> coming months.
> Michael's legacy lives on in this world through all of you — his tens
> of thousands of students and practitioners of shamanism. His work will
> continue into the future through the educational efforts of the
