Shamanic Soul Recovery



Pre-requisite – none

Ancient shamans knew something that is vital and relevant for our healing in modern times – the understanding that in the course of any life we are liable to suffer soul loss, the loss of parts of our vital energy and identity.

Emma draws on powerful cross-cultural Shamanic practices and Mystery Traditions to help you to journey back through time, recover lost pieces of your soul, so that you can experience greater wholeness, energy and passion for life. She will help you to reconnect with your magical child and entertain your creative spirit to gently and lovingly “re-ensoul” yourself

In order to be whole and well, we must find the means of soul recovery.

Soul loss has many causes…

The world seems too cold and cruel, and part of us goes away. In cases of profound trauma, splitting from our soul may be a survival mechanism.

Our soul may leave because we are compelled to make a wrenching life choice..

We grieve the death of a beloved person, and part of us follows that loved one, even into lands of the dead.

We can lose soul because we refuse to take on the assignments that nourish and entertain our creative spirit. Soul leaves when we won’t follow dreams.

How do you know you have soul loss?

Common symptoms of soul loss include chronic fatigue; emotional numbness; chronic depression; feeling spacey; addictive behaviors; low self-esteem; inability to let go of past situations or people no longer in your life; dissociation and multiple personality disorder; obesity or unexplained weight gain; abusive behaviors; absence of dream recall; recurring dreams of locations from earlier life, or of a self separate from your present self.

Some people try to fill this “hole” with relationships, addictions, success, or any number of distractions, but the truth is that the nagging sense of emptiness never goes away.

So how do we address this common malaise that shamans diagnosed so precisely millennia ago?

One method to address soul loss, soul retrieval, refers to a shamanic operation in which the practitioner makes a journey on behalf of a client to locate lost aspects of soul, brings them back, and transfers them to the client’s body, often by blowing them into energy centers such as the heart and the crown of the head.

Soul recovery, by contrast, is a broader, gentler and mutually empowering approach in which the practitioner helps you become a shaman of your own soul and healer of your own life.

The practice of soul recovery is, in no small part, a process of dream recovery. Many of us in modern society are suffering from a protracted dream drought. From an indigenous perspective, this is a very serious condition.

When we remember dreams, we may find that they show us where our missing parts have gone, opening portals for shamanic journeys we can take in order to reclaim the energy and imagination of our younger selves.

You will discover how to journey, with the aid of Shamanic Visioning – you will also connect with a larger field of energy as well as with beings who can help guide your path, ranging from ancestors to guardian animal spirits to your Higher Self.

Opening to the practice of Soul recovery can turn your nights into a time for transformation, healing and receiving valuable guidance.
