This four day training workshop teaches you the classical method of Soul Retrieval and integrative shamanic- as well as psychotherapeutic techniques. The concept of ‘soul loss’ recognises, as does the modern psychological concept of ‘dissociation’, the human ability to split off parts of the psyche in response to traumatic situations or adverse circumstances. According to shamanic views everybody experiences ’soul loss’ to a certain extent during a lifetime. Fragmentation and loss of parts of the person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual potential and life energy is the price to pay.
Indigenous healers have always known that the activation of dissociative mechanisms requires an altered state of consciousness. Unlike modern therapeutic approaches they believe that certain split-off parts cannot be accessed and retrieved by the affected person. Shamans therefore ‘journey’, utilising deep trance states and their intent, to retrieve lost soul parts and re-integrate them for the individual and the community. In the process of their journeying into subconscious and parallel universes, they have acquired a vast knowledge about those realms, their landscapes and maps, their archetypal imageries, language, and vibrational fields and about the teachers and helpers available in those realms. Shamans see the retrieval and integration of lost soul parts as a most essential step towards Healing and Oneness.
