Soul Retrieval [Conscious Media Network]

For those of us who have ever suffered a serious accident, emotional trauma or loss in our lives there is often a sense of having “lost a part of ourselves.” Many indigenous cultures have gathered around the suffering member of their tribe to conduct a healing called Soul Retrieval, which is generally facilitated by a wise elder member of the tribe called a Shaman. Recently, the western world has embraced this valuable practice, and one of its pre-imminent Western practitioners is Jill Juykendall.
