- Shamanic journeying for Soul Retrieval
- Grounding and Integrating of the retrieved soul parts: shamanic and psychosynthesis concepts
The ancient shamanic concept of ‘Soul Loss’, like the contemporary psychological concept of ‘dissociation, recognises the human ability to split off parts of the psyche, mainly in response to adverse circumstances and/or trauma. Soul Loss is seen as a common experience that fragments us and diminishes our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual potential, severing the connection to our deepest and authentic self in the process.
Although everyone experiences Soul Loss, it can manifest in different ways, but it always results in split-off parts of the psyche, unavailable to the individual, and therefore in a curtailment of vital energetic life powers.
In the psychotherapeutic field we aim to help the individual retrieve and integrate those parts so that the individual can heal and lead a more creative authentic life, which is both meaningful and purposeful.
In traditional cultures, it is also believed that the retrieval and integration of lost soul parts is essential. Unlike contemporary approaches, shamans have always assumed that certain parts are difficult to access by the individual. They have therefore ‘journeyed’ into the unconscious and parallel realms, using deep trance states, to retrieve lost soul parts, acquiring a vast knowledge about those realms and the teachers and helpers available.
The course fees include a non-refundable deposit of £ 50.00 and an administration fee of £ 5.00. Refunds are only made up to 6 weeks before the course commences.
Participants will receive an email with joining instructions and further information in June 2019.
