Guest Professor:

Claude AnShin Thomas

Start date

08/08/2022 – 08/18/2022

Place: Lake Baikal, Buryatia, Siberia. Russia

There is only one humanity but there are many mountains that divide us. Can we be with ourselves, with others and with the world.

An intense and deep exploration to overcome and dissolve the divisions and separations that prevent us from being the One. After the workshop we will start a journey in the Republic of Buryatia.

This unique personal growth event will incorporate shamanic rituals, Transpersonal Breathing (Holotropic), systemic constellation, integration and stillness.

We are all human with the same basic needs. We are all one; But there are mountains that separate us from each other. Each of us needs a place we call home, we need fresh air to breathe, clean water and healthy food. Our boys and girls all need a good education. We need other beings with whom we can relate honestly and authentically, that give us space for our individual truths, for our likes and dislikes. We all need security and non-violence. We need intimacy, and a place for our creative expression.

We need the recognition and respect of others. It is the food of the soul; Our body and soul will starve if there is not enough.

Baikal trip

Departure date

August 18-25, 2022



General tour

This seminar trip is designed for those interested in discovering the culture, people and lifestyle of Buryatia and shamanism who with a spirit of adventure are equally tempted by the encounter of authentic shamanic work and by the possibility of experiences of internal exploration that place us in our relationship with nature and our origins.

Siberia, in this part of Lake Baikal, is steeped in shamanic culture. On the northwestern slope of Baikal, shamanism was reunited with the Christian Orthodox religion, while on the southeast side, it was influenced by Buddhism.


Along the slopes of the picturesque Barguzín valley and those that surround Lake Baikal, you reach lost villages in the Siberian taiga, and a wise local lifestyle. We will visit the nature reserve and we will know Barguzín, and quiet corners in the exuberant nature, where nothing seems to interrupt the course of the tranquility of its inhabitants.

We will have the opportunity to meet and work with various shamans, in different approaches.


A trip to the place where Shamanism was born, a spiritual tradition and a means of healing.
