Shamanism is a form of spiritual practice that is found in the roots of almost every culture on earth. It brings us back to our place of origin, to a place of connecting with nature and the spirit worlds in a deep and organic way.
A key component to healing practices within shamanic traditions is the healing of a person’s soul. To enjoy a full and joyful life and to live a life of purpose we need to be whole and complete within ourselves. The practices of Soul Healing, Soul Calling, and Soul Retrieval are worked with to return lost vitality, essence, and aspects of self that are missing. We may lose these essential energies through trauma, sickness, emotional wounds, or grief. When these vital energies are missing or fragmented they need to be returned so that healing can occur on all levels.
A loss of vital essence, soul energy, or aspects of self may result it apathetic feelings toward life, a lack of passion or enthusiasm, a feeling of disconnection from self or the world around us, and can even manifest physically in autoimmune diseases.
Every indigenous culture has its own practices for healing the soul. Although there are many similarities in these practices there are also unique components to each practice that enable us to see these practices from different perspectives and to work in unique ways that offer different approaches to this form of healing.
During this retreat we will engage in practices, techniques, and ceremonies from several different indigenous cultures to call back vital energy, to heal our soul essence, and to return lost or fragmented aspects of our self.
Our days will be filled with teachings and trainings, our evenings will culminate in ceremonies to move us deeper into integrating the work. There is also a pool available for use between activities.
This is a residential program which includes meals and lodging. We strongly encourage everyone to stay on premises through the entire workshop to cultivate a sense of community and to make sure that you can stay "in the work". Shamanism isn't about "practicing" it is about "living and being".
What will be covered
- Understanding the nature of the soul and how loss and fragmentation of self occurs
- Behavioral practices to prevent this loss and fragmentation from continuing to happen
- Cultivating our Masculine/Solar and Feminine/Lunar energies to be whole human beings
