Intensive Soul Retrieval and Soul Clearing Workshop

  • Mar 17, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • HeartMind House

This powerful day-long workshop will teach you both Soul Retrieval and Soul Clearing - the two most important shamanic healing practices for restoring energetic and spiritual wholeness and integrity!

Soul retrieval is one of the most powerfully healing practices available to us through the tool of the shamanic journey. Shamans understand soul loss as one of the major causes of the physical, emotional and spiritual symptoms people experience. Most of us have lost many parts of our souls due to trauma over the years. This soul loss helps us to survive in the moment - because there's simply less of us present to endure the trauma. But over time, the cumulative losses of so many parts of our soul leaves us feeling fragmented, depressed, anxious, and cut off from joy.

Fortunately, there is a remedy: soul retrieval! As you become proficient in shamanic journeying, you will be able to develop close relationships with wise, compassionate guides - who can then help you travel into non-ordinary reality to retrieve the parts of your soul you've left behind or become separated from. Reintegrating these soul parts is an extraordinary process, and can make an enormous difference in your life!  It will help you feel much more whole, resilient, joyful, and able to love and be loved.

Soul clearing is the other key component to physical, psychological and energetic health. Most of us are carrying around numerous energies, emotions and imprints that are not our own.  There are many ways that this "energetic interference" can take hold. As children, many of us took on our parents' or family members' energetic matter. In intimate relationships, partners often become deeply emotionally entangled. And some of us are so porous that we routinely take on the "stuff" of people around us - friends, co-workers, clients, even strangers. In order to restore our own energetic integrity and be fully able to grow and heal, we need to clear out all of these other energies.

Once again, our guides can help us separate out what is truly ours from what is not. Often, we need to use a "differential diagnosis" process to determine which of our symptoms come from lost soul parts that need healing, and which come from foreign energies that simply need to be released. For instance, many people describe hearing negative inner voices that criticize or attack them. Often, this phenomenon contains both components: a wounded younger self that has learned to expect and internalize such treatment, and a foreign energy that has become lodged inside of us. Therefore, combining the practices of soul retrieval and soul clearing is even more effective than using either practice alone.

This day-long Soul Retrieval and Soul Clearing workshop teaches you fundamental healing practices that you will be able to use for the rest of your life. These tools are quite literally life-changing! To attend this day, you MUST already be familiar with the practice of shamanic journeying, and in contact with at least one compassionate guide. You may satisfy this prerequisite in one of numerous ways: 1) By attending one of my full-day journeying intensives (for instance, the one on Saturday, March 16 - conveniently scheduled for the day before this class, so you can make a full weekend of it if you choose); or 2) By doing a private session with me; or 3) By learning the practice of core shamanic journeying with another teacher. (If you have any question about whether your prior experience adequately prepares you for this class, just email or call and we'll figure it out together.)

Fee: My fee for this full-day workshop is only $95. This is far less than half the cost of other such workshops in this area. (For instance, the Foundation of the Sacred Stream, where I studied, only teaches this material in a 2 1/2 day workshop, for which they charge $595.) However, because I'm passionate about keeping this work accessible, I also offer a sliding scale in cases of need. And as long as I have at least four full-fee participants signed up, I won't turn anyone away for lack of funds! So if you feel strongly drawn to attend (and have the necessary background) but cannot afford this class, please get in touch, and we'll find a way to work it out.

About me: I've been formally studying core shamanic practices for ten years, and teaching them for six.  I also have extensive background in hypnotherapy, energy medicine, Focusing and other healing modalities. I've published seven books and have taught at numerous colleges and universities. For much more information about me and my work, please visit my website at

    Authentic, healing, educational, compassionate, creative, multi-dimensional, precise yet open to everyone's unique experience of traveling through the other realms.
    Ruth brings a calm listening grounded-ness and strength within a peaceful magical setting that allowed me to feel very comfortable in my journeying. I feel everyone's experiences were honored and respected.
    I left the workshops with techniques I will be able to use, personalize and expand upon. I am very happy that I attended and look forward to more learning. Thank you Ruth, and thanks to all of the other attendees for sharing their experiences as well.
