Power Soul Retrieval Method™

Soul loss due to trauma—such as emotional pain and shock, accidents, long term illness, constant stress, overwork and even the loss of connection with nature—is a spiritual illness, recognized by shamans cross-culturally.

A missing soul portion can be thought of as part of a person's vitality and essence that they can no longer access, leaving them diminished and lacking in power. Soul retrieval is a classic shamanic method in which the practitioner, with the assistance of their helping spirits, makes a shamanic journey to locate and return any missing portions of a client's soul.

In this fully experiential online workshop, participants will be trained in the core elements of soul retrieval, including: Definitions of the soul and soul loss; the importance of spiritual power to effective soul retrieval and exercises to build power and strong relationships with your helping spirits; how to find and bring back a lost soul portion for a client; and practice with other participants offering and receiving soul retrieval to help restore wholeness, personal vitality, and health.

Participants must be able to successfully journey in the Upper, Lower, and Middle Worlds, and have a strong relationship with a Power Animal and/or Teacher from the Upper or Lower Worlds.
