Home-Study Shamanic Healing Training Program
The Shaman's Heart Program is the first-ever comprehensive guided self-study program incorporating shamanic practitioner and transpersonal principles for developing one's highest capacity for soul-based and heart-centered living.
The Shaman's Heart Program is a unique and practical integration of shamanic practice, transpersonal psychology, ancient wisdom teachings, and various contemporary methods of spiritual growth, development and personal transformation. Byron Metcalf's Shaman's Heart Program is specifically oriented toward creating the capacity to navigate these challenging times and complex world in a heart-centered and soul-based manner. To the degree that a person commits to ongoing practice, deep, profound and lasting change can occur.
Byron calls this integral process "HoloShamanic," which means to see, recognize, and experience wholeness and completeness.While the Shaman's Heart Program is not designed to teach or train you to become a shaman or shamanic practitioner, it is based in Byron's 20+ years of experience in both shamanic and transpersonal methods. The program is for people who are truly interested in authentic personal empowerment, and those who are drawn to explore and develop the capacities of the heart from a shamanic and transpersonal perspective.
This program is ideal for both seasoned and beginning shamanic practitioners, as well as those who are interested in, or curious about shamanic work in a more general sense.
Experienced shamanic practitioners will be able to explore new dimensions and aspects of the heart and may even open into surprisingly new territory.
The Shaman's Heart Program is evolutionary - meaning that your development continually unfolds in an organic and uniquely personal way. More fundamentally, this approach is holonistic: meaning that each aspect, quality and potential of the heart is in itself a whole system, embedded in other whole systems. For example, the quality of strength is in itself, a whole system that is also embedded in the quality of compassion. Similarly, compassion is a whole system that is embedded in the quality of intelligence, and so on. As such, the heart is the cosmological center of the personal human experience - the whole and the parts are an interpenetrating matrix of evolving maturity and wholeness that support and guide you toward the full realization of your essential nature and the source of all reality. Your understanding, knowledge, skill and ability to live fully in a soul-based, heart-centered manner, continues to increase, deepen and expand as you go deeper into the program's practices, training and teachings.Potential benefits include:
• Heart-Centered self-empowerment - authentic trust and confidence in one's capacity to navigate life's challenges
• Freedom from fear, worry and anxiety
• Improved immune system and a reduction of stress related and psychosomatic illnesses
• Increased ability to relax deeply and let go
• Enhanced capacity for intimacy and openness in relationships • Increased presence, creativity, mental clarity, focus and attention
• Freedom from an excessive need for external approval, respect and recognition
• A sense of basic trust in one's self-healing capacities
• An expanded experience of one's true self and true nature
The foundational component of The Shaman's Heart Program is a series of exercises contained in a 4-CD package produced in collaboration with Monroe Products. The CDs contain verbally guided exercises, Byron Metcalf's award winning music, subtle sound effects, and specially blended Hemi-Sync® frequencies to guide you into focused whole-brain states of consciousness. Hemi-Sync® helps you achieve and sustain synchronized brainwave activity in both hemispheres of your brain, helping the student/listener to integrate and assimilate the program's exercises more effectively. Expanded and advanced exercises, additional supplemental practices, and detailed information related to the program's exercises, practices and theoretical components are available online for clients, students, and customers of The Shaman's Heart Program.

"Byron Metcalf's gorgeous recordings of percussion, blended with the sounds of nature and the subtle driving frequencies of Monroe's Hemi-Sync® technology, have long been favorites of mine, and many others for shamanic journeywork. His music touches the heart-center and invites you into a warm, relaxed yet centered mood that is ideal for healing divinations. The Shaman's Heart Program integrates Byron's verbally guided exercises and meditations into the mix as well, and has created a beautifully expansive orienting framework for self-directed exploration of the shamanic landscapes."

"True shamans see through their hearts, live a life of honor and respect, and have a light and joy shining through their eyes that Westerners long for. The Shaman's Heart Program by Byron Metcalf (in collaboration with Monroe Products) teaches us how to embrace all these gifts. His work is brilliant and accessible to all. Those new to shamanism as well as experienced shamanic practitioners will receive great benefit from this program. I know I did!"
- Sandra Ingerman, author of Soul Retrieval and The Shamanic Journey: A Beginner's Guide
"It has been said that 'where we place our awareness...so the spirit soon follows.' Byron Metcalf's Shaman's Heart Program extends a compelling invitation to listeners to engage in a deep dive exploration of the heart, the subtle realities of the energy body, and the invisible realities of the spirit world. Augmented by the Monroe Institute's integrated Hemi-Sync technology, The Shaman's Heart Program is a potent doorway of spiritual practice for beginner and seasoned practitioners alike. In our increasingly disconnected and fragmented world, The Shaman's Heart Program is not only a multidimensional tune-up for the heart, mind and soul...it is a vital post-modern tool for healing and transpersonal development."
- Frank MacEowen, shamanic explorer, author of The Spiral of Memory & Belonging
