Thanks to all of you who have expressed interest in the Soul Retrieval intensive coming up on Nov. 21, from 1-7 pm. Several people have told me that they would also like to attend the morning tutorial on shamanic journeying, from 10 a.m. to noon - so that is definitely ON.

(If you do not have previous experience with shamanic journeying, you may come from 10 a.m.-noon to learn the basics - $25 additional charge. Then we'll break for lunch, and you'll be ready to come to the Soul Retrieval class at 1:00!)
What is Soul Retrieval?sign
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-$120, sliding scale, for the six-hour Soul Retrieval workshop; $25 additional for the morning tutorial in basic shamanic journeying practice, if needed. Assuming sufficient enrollment, partial scholarships may be available for those who need them -- I try not to turn anyone away. My aim is to make this powerful healing practice available to as many people as possible. CEUs are available for CA-licensed MFTs and LCSWs.
