This special double intensive course will introduce a range of working methods, key power practices and essential ethics in shamanic healing and soul retrieval. The main work of the shaman is, and always has been, to heal illness and help others maintain their good health. The concept of power is essential in understanding shamanic healing, as it nearly always deals with re-empowerment. On this course we will examine different ways of returning lost power and working with the client’s essential and natural power as a way to health.
Course participants will also learn to sense and identify unwanted power intrusions and work with shamanic extraction healing - the removal of inappropriate energy. Together we will undertake group healing ceremonies and explore ways to work shamanically with distance healing.
Tools can be useful for both diagnosis and treatment, and we will look at how to identify and assemble them. We will work with the healing power of song and words, and ally ourselves with plant helpers for treating specific illnesses and for creating health.
The course will also cover the ethics of working with shamanic healing and essential practices such as deep listening, helping clients receive, and maintaining our own health when doing this work.
Soul Retrieval is a way of shamanic healing that is very specific work and needs special skills and understanding. In traditional societies around the world, soul-loss is seen as a major cause of much serious illness. Soul-loss can make us feel separated from our bodies, our feelings, our relationships, and from Life itself. Soul-loss keeps us from feeling connected to the Earth, and to the joy and power she has to offer to us.
It is a classic part of the shaman's work to find missing soul-parts and bring them home. Participants will be introduced to shamanic work with soul-loss, and learn how this can be effective in working with those who have suffered physical, emotional or spiritual trauma.
This course is mainly for people who want to bring shamanic healing and soul retrieval work into their practice to help others. It is also for those who wish to use their experiences from the course to go deeper and strengthen their relationship to their Spirit helpers.
Participants will also have the opportunity to be isolated in Nature overnight if they wish, in a traditional “Utiseta” (Sitting Out) to ask for guidance and personal power.
Participants must have completed introductory course The Shaman's Journey or agreed equivalent. All must be experienced in shamanic journeying and have a good connection with at least two Spirit helpers.
