MEDICINE FOR THE EARTH GATHERING AND HEALING WITH SPIRITUAL LIGHT
March 12-16 2014 Location: Joshua Tree Retreat Center in Joshua Tree, California Contact: Girvani Leerer email address: firstname.lastname@example.org phone: 510-649-9624
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.
In 2004 Sandra was invited by The School of Integrative Medicine at the University of Michigan to participate in a pilot research study to study the effects of the Medicine for the Earth work on people who suffered depression after having a heart attack. The study used a variety of standard physical and mental benchmarks to track the success of the program.
The conclusion of the published research study showed that a spiritual retreat such as Medicine for the Earth could be used to increase hope while reducing depression in persons with acute coronary depression.
In this training you will learn what Sandra taught to her group in Michigan and how to teach the work to others.
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.

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.
