A soul retrieval ceremony is a four-hour ceremony that works to repair any fragmentation that may have happened to you on a soul level. This ceremony helps to support your spiritual clarity and wholeness.
Soul fragmentation can occur as we go through any of life’s painful, traumatic or overwhelming experiences. These events can cause aspects of our soul’s energy to separate from our body in order to keep them safe and protected from the trauma that is occurring on the physical level. Once the traumatic event is over, we may have a hard time calling home and reconnecting to those aspects of our soul that we pushed away. Thus, we move forward without full access to our soul’s power. This can affect our vitality, intimacy, creativity, and general sense of well-being on all levels.
Another way soul fragmentation can occur is through relationship. When we are close with someone— a lover, child, parent, teacher, student, friend— we connect with them on an energetic level. These connections can be called “energy cords,” and they are non-verbal pathways of communication. If one person in a relationship is struggling, stabilizing energy can get passed back and forth through these cords. When the relationship ends, you may still carry energy with you that is not yours, or some of your energy may still be with the other person. In addition to remaining with people from our past, aspects of our soul can also stay connected to past locations where significant events took place.
This fragmentation of the soul creates empty energetic spaces in our body and spirit where our soul’s energy used to reside. Over time, we may intentionally or unintentionally try to fill these empty spaces with people, places, substances, or behaviors. Although perhaps offering temporary relief, these external sources are not fully in alignment with our true nature and soul. This creates a disjointed experience of living that does not feel fully authentic, and can lead to repeated patterns of chaotic or challenging events, or personal barriers that we cannot seem to overcome despite seeking help from multiple sources.
Soul retrieval is actually an umbrella term for a large ceremony during which many smaller clearing and healing ceremonies take place to both remove any non-self energies, and to call home to the body any missing soul pieces. This ceremony supports the wholeness and clarity of your soul being fully present in and with your body.
A soul retrieval ceremony is not the only route to repairing soul fragmentation. Every level of our being is interconnected, and sometimes as we heal psychologically, physically, or emotionally, pieces of our soul spontaneously return. If this specific ceremony is the right method of soul healing for you, you will instinctually know and feel called to it. As part of our preparation for the soul retrieval, we will set up a time to talk on the phone about your intentions and questions.
This ceremony does not replace the physical, psychological, and emotional healing processes that are a necessary part of recovering from traumatic or painful events. This ceremony is for tending to the impacts of these events on your soul.

Because this is a large ceremony, you will invite a supportive friend or ally to be with you, and there will also be a shamanic drummer present.
