 Apprenticeship with Renee Baribeau, The Practical Shaman

Welcome to The Practical Shaman Apprenticeship Program, a transformative journey led by Renee Baribeau, The Practical Shaman. Drawing on her Nautilus Gold Award-Winning book, Winds of Spirit,  her upcoming new book, The Practical Shaman,  and decades of shamanic initiations, extensive training, and direct revelation, Renee brings ancient shamanic wisdom tools to practitioners seeking profound personal and community transformation.

Renee is also known for co-hosting the popular weekly podcast, The Shamans Cave, with Sandra Ingerman. This apprenticeship program is designed for individuals interested in deepening their understanding of ancient shamanic practices. It requires a willingness to explore the depths of your soul’s longing and embrace the journey of personal transformation, wind alchemy, initiation, and community. Through this program, you will learn to navigate life effortlessly with the guiding force of the Wind propelling your sails.

The Practical Shaman Mastery course is a self-mastery program that equips you with the tools and knowledge to bring ancient shamanic wisdom into your daily life and share it with your community. You will be prepared to facilitate wind work healing, teach beginner classes, and find balance in both your personal and professional life.

Please note that this program is not for casual participants or those who seek quick fixes through attending numerous webinars. We will be diving into the universal principles of shamanism, including surrender, self-inventory, forgiveness, and service. If you tend to juggle multiple classes simultaneously, this program may not be the right fit for you. Our objective is to empower you to stand confidently in your power and serve others.

If you are still reading, I am eager to learn more about you and your intentions for the coming year. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student of shamanism, all that is required is a sincere willingness and an authentic heart. This program is ideal for those who wish to integrate wind work into their healing practices, pursue business opportunities, or aspire to teach this profound wisdom.

We look forward to embarking on this transformative journey with you.

 I began my journey with Renee when I committed to holding space as a Fire Tender last October I think it was. Well, since these past months, including the 5 week Mastery class of Winds Of Spirit I can say that my life has changed for the better and I’m so much happier .I navigate and trust my messages from spirit! I am grateful for your amazing work Renee!


Your class is exactly what I need right now. The tools you are giving us are fantastic.

The winds of Spirit are here to move us through the changes necessary to heal ourselves, each other and Mother earth. This course will give you practical and effective ways to ground your vision into the here and now. It will help you remove the obstacles standing in our way of tilling the soil. It will guide you to plant seeds to be grown and tended to, in order to yield the harvest of your dreams.

During our 5 weeks together I learned the importance of embodied instruction. Renee’ is breaking ground with Wind Work, which is a new language and content. Renee’s knowledge gave ground to help the group stay moving with this deeply experiential work. I am an instant devotee to Wind work! It is essential on one’s spiritual journey.

This course kicked my butt, it created a side of myself that I had no idea was in me to grow from. Now I will not live without this work. I’ll weave this work into my daily life. I loved the friendships and trust among all involved. Renee says it like it is, she moves, and pushes you to really feel the wind navigation and grow. I’m grateful Renee Baribeau for believing in me.

This course was a deep dive into buried treasure.  Working with resistance isn’t easy but the rewards are huge.  Renee is an excellent guide.  There needed to be trust, and there was, heaps of it.

Last Fall I did the Finish the Year Strong program with Renee. I went into it with some career goals I wanted to tackle and some personal issues that I wanted to experience more healing and peace about. The program gave me the tools and processes I needed to work towards and through all that I brought to the course for tending plus so much more than I could ever have imagined. Still, with just a little over a week left of Winter, I am still experiencing new results and growth (and honestly, kind of blowing myself away!) with the changes that are coming and with much less effort than before. The biggest gift I got from Finish the Year Strong was deep alignment with myself….and more trust in trusting that so that anything out of alignment can fall away. I cannot believe how different I feel in just two seasons and I can’t wait for the Spring program! I feel like I am finally in my body and fully present since I finished the last wind class.
