Introduction to Journeying Workshop
Shamanic journeying is a process for accessing information that is not necessarily available in Ordinary Reality through a process of Direct Revellation. We honor the ability of each individual to access their Compassionate Helping Spirits to find guidance and aid, and to enrich the quality of their lives.
In this introductory workshop, we will learn to journey into the World of Spirit and begin to build relationships with our Compassionate Helping Spirits for personal exploration, spiritual guidance, and community. Working with the sonic driven approach to journeying, our work will include the creation of Sacred Space, Lower World and Upper World journeys, and exploring Middle World protection.
This class provides beginning skills for further work in Shamanic trainings, Journey Circles, and other work offered by this instructor.
In this two-weekend residential training, participants will experience techniques for soul retrieval, power animal retrieval, diagnostics, soul remembering, and retrievals for specific body parts.
Participants will experience both giving and receiving soul retrieval.
Topics will include:
- Ethics of performing these practices
- Use of healing words in interactions with clients
- Ways to help clients to reclaim a sense of power and integrate the healing work.
- Demonstrated success with shamanic journeying, including Upper and lower world journeying.
- A strong relationship with your power animal and spirit teacher. This training is for individuals who are experienced with shamanic journeying and are dedicated to their own path of unfolding through the guidance of their compassionate helping spirits.
The instructor, Gail Gulick, is authorized by Sandra Ingerman as a teacher of soul retrieval and other shamanic healing techniques. This workshop is the equivalent of Sandra Ingerman's Five Day-Day Soul Retrieval Training.
There are Pre-Requisites
When someone experiences illness, injury, or emotional trauma, the experience may be too difficult to bear, and a loss of soul essence can occur.
Parts of the soul that split off from the body may be unable to return on their own, leaving vital energies depleted. In some cases this depletion can be extreme.
Some signs that soul loss may have occurred: on-going feelings of bereavement, helplessness, confusion, isolation, or detachment.
During the shamanic practice of soul retrieval, the shamanic practitioner journeys into non-ordinary reality to locate these lost soul parts. With the help of her helping spirits, the practitioner is able to recover the lost soul parts and return them to the client's body.
After the recovery of the missing soul parts, and the practice of compassionate self-care, a sense of safety, trust and compassion towards the self may also return.
In this workshop we will learn techniques for transforming personal perceptual blocks, inhibiting belief systems, and internal conflicts through the practice of Spiritual Transfiguration. Drawing on the Power of Spiritual Light, we will deeply engage our own Divine essence as a catalyst for profound change in ourselves and in our lives.
