Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind. Shamanism is an
ancient healing practice where healing, solving problems, and spiritual guidance
can be obtained through altered states of consciousness. Helping spirits from other
dimensions of reality can be contacted and communicated with through these altered
states of consciousness. The power to overcome obstacles, work with energy, gain
knowledge and heal comes with working in partnership with spirit guides, teachers,
power animals, and/or sacred objects. Through journeying, ceremony and ritual, the
practitioner and client create a loving sacred space where healing naturally happens.
Soul retrieval is working with spiritual aspects of illness due to loss of power.
Our soul is our essence and life force. A portion of our soul can leave our body
during emotional or physical trauma in order to survive. Soul loss can occur with
anything that causes pain such as an accident, surgery, divorce or death of a loved
one, etc. Symptoms of soul loss can be chronic depression, chronic fatigue syndrome,
decreased immune system, and loss of vitality. The soul doesn’t always come back
on its own so the shamanic practitioner, through soul retrieval, can assist the client
and bring back the pure essence of the soul that left
This work is based on the book, Medicine for the Earth, How to Transform Personal
and Environmental Toxins by Sandra Ingerman. Sandra shows how to use the ancient
technique of transmutation to change ourselves and the environment. It is about
creating a space that allows change to occur versus trying to make change happen.
The work is extremely effective for inner personal change that creates changes in
the outer world. Sandra says if she could leave only one message about this work,
it would be:
“It is who we become that changes the world, not what we do”.
The life-altering Medicine for the Earth process walks us through transmutation in
a step-by-step meaningful, powerful and profound way.
