Announcing a new Meetup for East Bay Shamanic Journey Group!

What: Special Workshop on Soul Retrieval

When: Sunday, November 21,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $60.00 per person

Where: HeartMind House
6853 Simson St.
Oakland, CA 94605

This in-depth Soul Retrieval workshop will meet for six hours -- 1:00-7:00 p.m. -- in order to give us a chance to go deeply into this practice. Please note: participants must have previous experience with shamanic journeying! If you have not previously journeyed, but would like to attend, please get in touch; if there is sufficient interest, I can teach a small group how to journey from 10 a.m. to noon on the same day. Then we can break for lunch, and you'll be ready to come to the Soul Retrieval class at 1:00!

What is Soul Retrieval?

Shamans believe that in order to survive trauma, parts of our soul split off from our core. Although this helps us bear what might otherwise feel unbearable, we need to retrieve our soul parts in order to feel whole and to truly move forward with our lives. Difficult relationships can also take parts of our souls. Fortunately, the tool of the shamanic journey can help us retrieve our soul parts from ex-partners, parents, or from wherever they may have become frozen in the past.

Shamanic journeying is an amazing practice - deceptively simple, yet able to provide myriad pathways to inner wisdom and healing. I've led numerous workshops and had a private shamanic healing practice for over 7 years; participants find that I create a safe space and a very powerful container for transformation.

Suggested donation: $60 for the six-hour Soul Retrieval workshop; $25 additional for the morning tutorial in basic shamanic journeying practice, if needed. Assuming sufficient enrollment, a sliding scale is available for those who need it -- pay what you can, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. My aim is to make this astonishingly powerful healing practice available to as many people as possible. CEUs are available for CA-licensed MFTs and LCSWs.

For more information about my work, please feel free to visit, and/or my private healing practice website,

In service of healing,
Ruth L. Schwartz, Ph.D.
