Soul Retrieval is an ancient shamanic practice introduced into modern Western healing traditions by Carl Jung, and more recently by the anthropologist Dr Michael Harner. Jung’s psychological research highlighted humanity’s malaise as directly related to an alienation from soul- full- ness.

Traumatic events may be the triggers for a soul part to leave for its survival – e.g accidents, operations, grief and stressful relationships. Symptoms of soul loss include low self-esteem, anxiety, apathy,  low resistance and malaise. Feelings of emptiness may be covered up with addictive behaviours, eating disorders and a life of feeling elsewhere, not truly in one’s body.

In my practice I have found soul retrieval has proven to be a profound healing experience with the capacity to transform past traumas into sources of illumination. An invaluable intercurrent to homeopathic treatment,  as to heal we must be in our bodies. If healing necessarily requires spiritual work, soul retrieval recovers the client’s power from past events, restoring vital energy and retaining it for the creative present.

Shamanic Healing sessions are capable of facilitating a catalysing  process creating gentle release of negative emotional experiences. A full healing session  (1.5  hours) generally includes extraction, soul retrieval and a power animal retrieval.

Feedback from the Soul Retrieval Workshop: “Thanks Pauline for an awesome day…I feel I have reached a deeper level of understanding and knowing. I am more confident and trusting of my guides and my “Intuition” and am beginning to “see” not just “feel” when I am journeying. I am also very excited about incorporating all of this into my Energy Healing work.” Sue T. (edited)

“As people feel more present in their bodies and in the world, they become more conscious of behavior that might be out of balance and disharmonious. When we are numb we might be aware that things in the world are not right but we can easily distract ourselves from feeling a need to change. When we are fully “inspirited” there is no place to retreat to and we are more inspired to change our lives.” Sandra Ingerman
