DOCTORING THE SOUL: Jungian and Shamanic Perspectives on Diagnosis and Healing of Soul

Classic Shamanic Soul Recovery & Extraction, Jungian methods of Soul Recovery and Inner Parts work, De-possession work, Trauma Healing through Psychoshamanic Ritual. Ethics and guiding principles.

In this series I will be presenting material from a lifetime of experience as a doctor of soul.

Jung liked the term “soul doctoring” as a description for his own style of work. It is a broader concept than soul retrieval and extraction. Initially we will use Jung’s clinical work as a psychoshamanic framework for the series, and as a way to discuss what we are doing in modern therapeutic terms when needed. We explore Jung’s correlation with the Archetypal World and the collective unconscious, with the “spirit world” or Dreamtime of the shaman’s cosmos. We will be using of lot of shamanic journeying and active dreaming in the series to navigate the deep psyche and the archetypal world, learning modern as well as very ancient skill-sets in soul doctoring.

In this certificate series students can select the specialty within soul doctoring they want to focus on. Some will be learning the classic shamanic method of soul recovery and extraction, some will be more interested in areas related to counseling or psychotherapy such as coaching, counseling, or psychotherapy. Each student will pick a focus according to their specialty and readiness. However, there will be a very substantial amount of shamanic journey work and active dream-work in this series.

We will also cover ethical issues and safety principles for soul doctoring work, and also developing client and dyadic skills for processing, holding space, and helping clients integrate material. We will also familiarize ourselves with a depth psychological framework for those who will, in the future be involved with soul recovery, extraction and other forms of soul doctoring associated with shamanic plant ceremonies.

The first workshop will be in a weekend retreat format. It will be introductory. Subsequent workshops in the Fall of 2017, late winter will be one day workshops, each very focused on a specific issue and skill set. The Spring workshop will be a weekend retreat, and the Summer Intensive will be a 5-day event.
