Free Intro Wednesday, October 23 at 8:00 pm – Class starts on November 6
Trauma often forces the psyche to suppress difficult feelings in order to carry on, but this takes its toll on the soul. Traditional shamans view this “soul loss”—the wounding of a person’s spirit due to trauma—as a leading cause of physical and psychological dysfunction. The primarily unconscious impulse to numb one’s feelings in order to carry on is the psyche’s survival strategy. The shamanic approach to healing this condition is to journey into the inner spirit world, retrieve the lost part of the soul, and reintegrate it into the psyche to return to wholeness.
In this class, we’ll learn shamanic techniques for traveling to the spirit world, diagnosing soul-loss symptoms, developing the ability to “see” the source of our own and others’ traumas, and performing soul retrieval.

“The whole experience has been wonderful. The subject and nature of the class can be a bit difficult to face head-on. . . but at the end of the day, everyone is on the same boat. A group of strangers coming together once a week to be vulnerable together. It’s inspiring!” – Alexandra Diaz
