"Excellent, intense, and unexpected. I’ve been journeying and studying for years, and there were plenty of surprises, emotional moments, and solid focused information." – Allison R.
POWER SOUL RETRIEVAL METHOD
Soul loss due to trauma - such as emotional pain and shock, accidents, long term illness, constant stress, overwork and even the loss of connection with nature - is a spiritual illness, recognized by shamans cross-culturally. A missing soul portion can be thought of as part of a person's vitality and essence that they can no longer access, leaving them diminished and lacking in power. Soul retrieval is a classic shamanic method in which the practitioner, with the assistance of their helping spirits, in an altered state using rhythmic drumming or rattling, makes a shamanic journey to locate and return any missing portions of a client's soul.
In this fully experiential online workshop, participants will be trained in the core elements of soul retrieval, including:
Definitions of the soul and soul loss.
The importance of spiritual power to effective soul retrieval and exercises to build power and strong relationships with your helping spirits.
How to find and bring back a lost soul portion for a client.
Practice with other participants offering and receiving soul retrieval to help restore wholeness, personal vitality, and health.
This experiential online training is offered via Zoom. Participants will see and hear each other and interact in pairs and small groups as well as in the full circle. All students **must participate** with audio/video and access the meeting through their own individual devices. Instructions for Zoom and workshop access will be provided after registration. The course consists of 10.5 hours of training.
What You Need
Please bring the following items to the Zoom workshop:
notebook/pen to take notes
eye covering (bandanna or mindfold) to block ambient light
blanket if you tend to get cold easily
If you'd like recommendations for items that Amara uses in her in-person workshops, click HERE.
Before the workshop begins, select a private location where you will not be disturbed. Consider a comfortable chair or place to sit/lie down for journeys. You might also like to use headphones or ear buds for an easier listening experience (but these are not necessary).
NOTE: The use of a laptop/desktop computer, or at minimum a tablet, is recommended for this workshop. A smart phone screen is too small for effectively viewing other participants during the direct healing practices. AC power is suggested. Please download the latest version of the Zoom app the day of the workshop so you can fully participate. Download participant instructions HERE, including audio/video settings.
