Soul Retrieval Training with Somatic Movement Approaches

A Transformative Course for Healers, Therapists & Bodyworkers


This course blends therapeutic shamanism, somatic movement and polyvagal theory creating a powerful healing approach for unresolved trauma.

Are you a healer, therapist or bodyworker looking for deeply transformative ways to work with trauma? The Soul Retrieval Training Course with Somatic Movement Approaches is specifically designed to provide practitioners or people who are drawn to this course, with the skills to confidently facilitate soul retrievals for themselves and for others.

Unresolved trauma can stop us from fulfilling our full potential and living happy and creative lives. This course combines therapeutic shamanism and somatic movement as a healing approach for unresolved trauma. You will learn the art of soul retrieval through a four-session structure that facilitates safety, transformation and integration within the body, mind and soul.

Somatic movement therapy supports the participant to build a safe and intimate relationship with their body, access deep-rooted trauma held in the nervous system and develop a sense of agency. Therapeutic shamanism enables the participant to reclaim their spiritual authority, integrity and wholeness. Both of these modalities draw upon the transpersonal experience of the participant, reconnecting them to a deeper and wider sense of Self that enables powerful healing to occur.

What is Soul Retrieval: The Healing Journey

Soul retrieval is an ancient shamanic healing practice designed to address the impact of trauma and soul loss.

In indigenous cultures, soul loss was believed to occur during times of trauma, grief, or significant life events. It was believed that a part of the soul could become detached as a coping mechanism, leaving the individual feeling incomplete or disconnected. This fragmentation was often seen as the root cause of emotional and physical imbalances, leading to symptoms of illness or spiritual malaise.

Traditional healers would enter an altered state of consciousness to access the spiritual realms to locate and retrieve these lost soul parts, facilitating their safe return and integration. This process can bring profound healing, restoring a deep sense of wholeness and connection to one’s true essence. There is often a sense of ‘coming home’ or feeling like oneself once again.

Healing from trauma and soul loss is a courageous and transformative journey. It involves acknowledging and validating the pain and experiences that led to soul loss while cultivating a nurturing and supportive environment for inner healing.

Soul retrieval allows us to embrace the totality of our experiences, honouring both the light and shadow aspects of our soul. Through this integration, we reclaim our power, resilience, and capacity for joy.
