2013 TRAINING WORKSHOPS FIVE-DAY SOUL RETRIEVAL TRAINING
May 28-June 2, 2013 in Germany
This workshop will be taught in Beuerhof in Uxheim/Vulkaneifel which is a beautiful location in the countryside.
The workshop will be translated from English into German.
This training is residential and is based on Sandra Ingerman’s books Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self and Welcome Home: Following Your Soul’s Journey Home and the CD program “The Soul Retrieval Journey” produced by Sounds True.
The five-day workshop is designed exclusively for those who wish to bring shamanic healing techniques into their practice with others, not for personal healing. Participants will be trained to work with the issue of soul loss, explore the experience of partial soul loss resulting from personal trauma and illness, and will learn how to track a person’s soul and return lost essence to that individual.
Particular emphasis will be placed on integrating this potent healing process in a modern day culture. Training will be given on developing communication skills that help the practitioner tell healing stories to their clients based on the spiritual information received in their journeys.
The course also focuses on life after soul retrieval… how to create a healthier life after healing has taken place. Individuals attending the training will perform and receive a soul retrieval during the course of the week, and are given extensive instruction on how to work with clients after a soul retrieval through the use of shamanic journeying, ritual, and ceremony. This work results in creating long term healing.
Success at shamanic journeying and good contact with power animals and/or teachers in non-ordinary reality is essential for participation. Please do not enroll if you are not confident with your journeying skills.
MEDICINE FOR THE EARTH GATHERING AND HEALING WITH SPIRITUAL LIGHT
June 4- June 9, 2013 taught in Scotland
This workshop will be held in Lendrick Lodge which is in the Trossachs. This is such a beautiful and powerful location.
This training based on the information in Medicine for the Earth teaches how to transform personal and environmental pollution by learning how to transmute negative beliefs, attitudes, and energy which is generated by emotions.
The process continues with learning how to work in cooperation with helping spirits and the spirits of the land as well as getting in touch with our own internal divine nature to create healing and transmutation.
The training includes learning about working in cooperation with all the elements earth, water, air, fire. Other key elements and spiritual practices will also be explored which can be easily incorporated into daily life. These methods are necessary and helpful for transforming and transmuting environmental and personal toxins.
With spiritual practices and learning how to shift our consciousness we can add to all the brilliant environmental work going on today. But we must learn the power of integrating spiritual work into our daily lives. And this is the major theme of this training.
Participants will also take part ceremonies to transmute water and other substances as well as to transmute planetary problems. There will be a fire ceremony to help us manifest our visions.
Because the etiology of illness today is different from ancient times, our healing methods must be updated to deal with modern-day illness such as cancer and immune deficiency problems caused by environmental pollution.
Sandra will teach new methods of healing based on the Medicine for the Earth work that can be integrated into a shamanic healing practice.
The ceremonial work done as a group in collaboration with community and the spirits is truly a life transforming experience.
Prerequisite: There are no workshops required for this training. Experience with shamanic journeying is required. To find a local teacher to teach you shamanic journeying please visit www.shamanicteachers.com
Required Reading and Audio: Medicine for the Earth: How to Transform Personal and Environmental Toxins, How to Heal Toxic Thoughts, andthe CD program “Miracles for the Earth” produced by Sounds True.
For many of us the word “shaman” calls to mind a spiritual healer steeped in secret knowledge and mysterious powers. But in this workshop, based on Sandra Ingerman’s book Shamanic Journeying: A Beginner’s Guide, drumming will be used to help participants directly experience the shamanic journey.
Using the shamanic journey to meet up with our own helping spirits we will explore altered states of awareness that can unlock answers to difficult personal questions and mobilize energy for reaching goals in everyday life.
Participants will learn how to use the shamanic journey for insight, vision, and healing. Sandra will also teach a couple methods for healing others as well as shamanic methods for reconnecting with nature to bring balance and harmony into our lives and to the planet.

THE POWER OF FOCUSED INTENT
A couple of years ago Sandra taught a course titled “Working in Community”. Participants met for a four-day workshop. We focused on how we can use our thoughts and words to change our personal life and be in service to all of life on the planet. We learned how to dream into being the world we wish to live in. And we looked to how we could use the practices of gratitude, blessings, and transfiguration to support our personal lives and also the community we created.
We then did two years of regular teleconferencing where Sandra lectured and led spiritual practices. And we created a yahoo group where we could share our experiences of doing this incredible work for each other and ourselves.
In January, 2012 Sandra started a six-month online course that was based on the Working in Community course. Once a month for six months she taught a live session where she lectured on material and lead spiritual practices to help anchor the work. There is also a forum that Sandra is a part of where we can share our experiences of keeping up with the practices.
The intention will be to use spiritual practices to help ourselves but also make a commitment to radiate light and send blessings to all in the course. And we will continue to share with each other over the six months on the online forum created by Sounds True. In this online course we will create a virtual community committed to creating the inner landscape needed to give solid results in the outer world. We will learn to concentrate our thoughts and words so that we can produce our desired goal. And we will work together in full support of each other so that each person’s goals are exponentially met by the group’s energy.
