Shamanism is our ancestral roots wherever we live and whatever sort of culture we have grown up in. Long before such historically recent concepts as organised religion, humans sought understanding, connection and knowledge using a variety of experiential pathways and tools which are just as applicable today as they ever were.

One of these is Shamanic journeying which takes us inside while the body goes into rest mode. The monotonous beat of the drum enables an opening in our visionary centres. Travelling with specific intent garners our inner being/ spirit to give us pictures, senses and feelings to help understanding of life and its patterns.

This method takes participants on an ‘inner journey’ outside of normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic cultures for thousands of years.

We disappear into spirit, detaching from life’s ordinary challenges, able to let go and ‘see’ through and past everyday issues to deeper patterns.  Shamans know that all dis-ease originates in the energy matrix of our being and they ‘travel’ to the source to effect healing. (‘Soul Retrieval’) For many of us these patterns can lie deeply hidden yet affecting us on every level.  Through this method participants enter parallel realities where hidden patterns can be experienced and solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems can be accessed.

Typical symptoms of soul‐loss are when people feel that they are observing life as an outsider rather than engaging and being fully involved. Other symptoms may be the feeling of being ‘spaced’ out a lot of the time, not really present, or a sense of pervasive fear, inability to trust people. Severe depression can also be a symptom of soul loss as can chronic illness. In the shamanic worldview, power and maintaining health go hand in hand, if the body is power‐full, there is no room for illness or disease, which can be regarded as an invasive force.

A big difference between Soul Retrieval and some Western psychological systems is that Soul Retrieval focuses on the return and integration of the lost life force..

This gathering/ workshop will take you deep into soul retrieval and regaining of your life-force.
