Shamanic, earth-centred practices are to be found in cultures throughout the world. Ancestral wisdom traditions have long celebrated the interconnectedness of all life, for all life is sacred.

The ancient practice of soul retrieval is based on the belief that when a person experiences trauma, he or she loses a part of his or her soul. In order to survive the experience, the soul part disassociates (a psychological term), becoming “stuck” in what is called non-ordinary reality.

A shamanic practitioner must travel in a “journey” (a form of meditation) to this non-ordinary reality to retrieve the soul part and restore it to the person or animal.

In returning soul parts, the shamanic practitioner restores balance, power and wholeness to an individual. In restoring a person to wholeness, the shamanic practitioner restores the ability of an individual to move forward in life with wisdom, clarity, courage and trust.



In this two-hour practical workshop, we will explore the importance of soul-retrieval in a contemporary context, and understand how this ancient ancestral practice can benefit our lives and personal relationships in remarkable ways. Through a guided shamanic drum journey, process work and embodied awareness, we will reclaim aspects of self that have long been forgotten - aspects which hold our beauty, power and magic.
