Animist Shamanic Training

Training Series with Quynn Red Mountain-  WELCOME!

q nevadaUpcoming trainings designed by Quynn Elizabeth Red Mountain are listed here.  These training series  assist you as you hone your ability to listen to the worlds within and around over a period of time (series times vary).  This deepening process leads to you being able to share your abilities with others in a sacred way.

Whether or not you feel called to be a Shamanic Practitioner, you can use sacred Practitioning Techniques in your Life and Healing Practice.

If you are Called, and you Listen, You will be Guided.

 “All People, of all ethnic backgrounds, have ancestors who, at one point in the past, knew the ways of Earth and understood the ways of Magic.  Each person has these ancestors in their DNA, and you can call upon these ancestors and ask them to whisper to you, to tell you what to do in these times.”  Told to Quynn by a Rock Grandfather in 2000.


ISA drummerTraditionally speaking, there are two ways that people called to the shamanic path learn their craft-

1) They apprentice to human teachers

2) They are taught by the Spirit World itself, the trees, the water, ancestors, animal guides…even the ‘ghosts’ of shamans who have passed on to the Spirit World.

Many types of training are a step by step ‘teaching’, laying out the exact path or way for the student to travel. However, in the realm of Full Circle Shamanic Training, it is ultimately the person’s Spirit Helpers who teach her or him what, when, and how to shamanize.  Quynn has been taught in this way. Her Spirit World has guided her each step along her path and shown her what she needs to do.  There is an important role for human teachers, however, which is to ‘turn people on’ to new ideas, share ahah! moments and help them connect the dots.  A  Tour Guide of the Soul and Inner Wilderness is sometimes needed when the initiate is unfamiliar with the territory.  This is Quynn’s role now. She sets up these situations and sacred places (called “Trainings”) for people to practice, ask within, and connect with others of like mind and heart, as they travel along their shamanic path.

Each training series is created with people who attend ISA circles in mind.  Quynn tunes in to what circle participants, and those she has yet to meet, seem to need and want, as well as what the Teaching Spirits want to share, and she builds a training around those needs.  Quynn is committed to offering affordable and useful training sessions that can assist each participant connect more deeply with their Spirit World, their sacred abilities, and their healed, creative spirit!   Join Quynn in a training that suits you :)



ISATestimonials from past Practitioner Trainings:

“The Shamanic Training series helped me to string together the pieces in my life that I now better perceive as Gifts, and provided the space to explore them.  Due to this series I feel more confident in my ability to connect with my Spirit Guides and am ambitious to continue exploring the lessons that the Spirits hold for me.”

“Quynn’s Shamanic Practitioner workshop series has expanded my repertoire for my healing practice and helped me feel more comfortable using the shamanic techniques I have learned.  It also helped me to realize how at home I feel incorporating shamana into my life’s work.”

“I am grateful for this course as it has helped me to build confidence.  Being in this space is a relief because it is a place where I feel I can express the “unknown” without prejudice and judgment, and that is refreshing.”

“I loved all of the stages of this program and the transformation that we all experienced.  Every time we gathered for another day of journeying and sharing, it seemed like it was an orchestra of Spirits shaping and shifting our energies, putting us through powerful initiations.”

“I would recommend an ISA training to anyone seeking to develop their shamanic arts.  We all have gifts or talents in this area and Quynn is so adept at helping us to realize this.  The sessions gave us many opportunities to practice and develop our skills.  Quynn facilitates sessions that are respectful, safe and supportive of all participants.  They are quite affordable and so worthwhile.”


Quynn Red Mountain-OOlah (One Who Balances)Quynn’s drum sang astonishing harmonies that supported my amazing, insightful, and playful journeys. I now feel much more competent to journey on my own whenever I need Spirit guidance, very welcome and supported in my personal “shamanalandia .” I highly recommend this class/ experience to all new journeyers, and to other journeyers who, like me, never became truly familiar with their personal spirit world.”

Last year’s ISA’s practitioner training with Quynn gave me a tremendous amount of guidance, and many new opportunities have arisen this year because of this experience.  I feel such a great and happy debt of gratitude to ISA’s practitioner training for my ability now to so confidently guide others with words, drum, and sacred presence. I feel that I benefited from the practical aspects and practice opportunities of ISA’s practitioner training, and also from the encouragement—and nudging!—both seen and unseen that was offered (and received). Also, I feel so happy and inspired to continue developing in this work, and I highly recommend ISA’s practitioner training and the work of Quynn to others. May many benefit!”

Thank you for creating the space for me/us to PRACTICE….. I know that I wouldn’t be practicing on people without your encouragement and you having this class.”


IMG_2213-3 smallYour guide is Quynn Red Mountain, shamanic practitioner, founder of Intuitive Shamanic Animists, author and media producer. Quynn was called to the shamanic path in 1996 and has worked with many people in individual and group settings.

“Quynn, as always, conjures an outstanding circle. The energy channeled through her drumming touches people, myself included, and provides safety that is heard and felt in all the connected worlds.”

“I learned much by simply observing and experiencing Quynn’s very skilled shamanic circle facilitation during the training. She demonstrates a certain fearlessness that cuts through, as well as her own deep honesty and presence—all of which makes her highly effective as a facilitator and trainer.”

Join Quynn in an upcoming Training series that calls to you.  Find out more by going to the page of each training.  If you are called to participate but you don’t feel you are ready, you can participate in a  circle in Tucson, or participate in online options.
