Soul Retrieval Class

When we suffer an emotional or physical trauma a piece of our soul may leave the body in order to survive the experience. Although soul loss is a survival mechanism the problem from a shamanic point of view is that the soul part that left usually does not come back on its own. Common symptoms of soul loss include dissociation, addictions, chronic depression, suicidal tendencies, post traumatic stress syndrome, immune deficiency problems, and grief that just does not heal.

Soul retrieval is a core shamanic healing method practiced all over the world for thousands of years. In this class you will learn about:


  • The causes of soul loss
  • Soul theft
  • How to safely return lost soul parts to a person or animal
  • How to support the healing integration process
  • Soul remembering

This five-day class, based on the book Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self by Sandra Ingerman, will give you a solid foundation in this method that can be used in your own healing practice. The book will be available for purchase at the class. You must have journeying experience and a working relationship with a power animal or teacher as a prerequisite for this class.

Space for this class is limited and must be reserved with an advance registration payment of $250.00 by August 1, 2012. Balance is due at the time of the class. You may commute daily for the class or reserve a room nearby. For additional information contact Mary at 763-444-8146 or 612-859-5908.
