Program Description

Join shamanic practitioner and teacher Dory Cote for a week of dancing, drumming, singing, fire ceremony, and shamanic art. While learning about and practicing the sacred nature of a powerful shamanic soul retrieval practice, we will celebrate as a community, welcoming our soul essences home.

You will have opportunities to be the “client” receiving your own soul retrieval and to experience a number of supervised practice sessions performing soul retrievals for others. You will learn:

  • The history of soul retrieval and what circumstances in our modern-day life may cause soul loss
  • The practice of past-life soul retrieval and body-part soul retrieval
  • How to work with people of all ages and backgrounds in an effective, loving, and compassionate way that promotes maximum results and healing.

As you spend time working with partners during this inspiring 5-day retreat, you will create and nurture our community, a hallmark of this work.
