Trauma is when a part of the self gets stuck or frozen in a traumatic experience. In this 10-day course, we will rescue, renew and restore the parts of ourselves stuck in historic and psychological suffering, using guided visualization, body-centered mindfulness, and the ancient tools of Shamanism and Buddhism, and animism. Connecting with elements of nature and our own best adult self brings love, compassion, and deep healing where it is needed most right now.

10 Session Course
"Your trauma work has been inspiring, beneficial and insightful. It has done more for me than traditional therapy ever could. Thank you for being in mylife. It’s been transformational."
I love the places this course has brought me and never wanted to leave. Today it was the earth who came to me."
Using the power of compassion, we will bring our wounded self parts out of suffering
and into the peace of the present moment to be loved and healed.
Understanding Trauma & Soul Retrieval
Learn about this unique perspective on trauma and an overview of the healing work we will do in the next nine sessions, followed by a short grounding meditation to connect with our own best adult self.
Journey To The Spirit Of Nature
Our first inner journey, or guided visualization, to connect with the peace and power available through the spirit of nature. This is a deeply healing experience and the place we will bring the traumatized parts of the self in future days. We are children of nature, and this is an aspect of our true home.
Connecting With Elements
For Power & Healing
We return to the safe and sacred place in nature that we discovered on Day 2 and connect with an element for wisdom, healing and empowerment. In this work all things hold consciousness, even things we usually consider inanimate, like water, earth, sun, tree, rock or wind. Connecting with the higher consciousness of elements in a direct and visceral is profoundly grounding and healing. These ancient resources provide support, guidance and unconditional acceptance as we grow in the skills and abilities to be our own healthy caregiver.
Spirit Guide In Animal Form
We return to the safe place in nature to add to our resources for power and healing by connecting with a spirit guide in animal form, also known as a power animal. This is an ancient Shamanic practice for gathering wisdom, knowledge and healing that is profound and transformative. The form of the power animal is a teaching.
We connect more deeply with our spiritual guides as we step across historic or psychological time to find and rescue the traumatized part of ourself that most needs help and healing right now. Together we will bring this wounded part of ourself into present time, to the safe place in nature we discovered on Day 2. This is NOT about re-experiencing trauma. This is about getting the wounded part of ourself out of trauma and into the peace and compassion of the spirit of nature in present time. They are cared for, healed and supported by the element we connected with in day 3 and the spirit guide in animal form from day 4.
Teacher In Human Form
We add to our inner resources for wisdom, power and guidance by finding a spirit guide or teacher in human form. This compassionate being comes with us to deepen our relationship and healing with the part of ourself that was traumatized. All self parts hold vital life energy. We will notice what is good about this now healing part of ourself and see if they want to remain with the spirit of nature in non-ordinary reality, or if they want to return with us into our life today.
Healing Our Relationship With Self
We look at our relationship with the wounded part of ourselves. We foster a healthy internal relationship and discover that how we treat ourselves internally has profound implications for our life experience and our recovery. With the support of our guides and teachers, our own best adult self is now their healthy caregiver and they are safe in present time with the continued support of our connection with the spirit of nature.
Deeper Healing: Releasing and Receiving
We deepen our healing experience by bringing the now healing part of ourselves to the spirit of nature and ask the guides to assist them in releasing any emotions, beliefs, though patterns or other energy formations that they have carried as the result of trauma. All aspects of nature are masters of energetic transformation and this part of ourself can release anything that no longer serves them and make room to receive the love, healing, compassion and life energy that they need right now.
Power Retrieval & Exchange
In this work life force or personal power has a form and substance. Our spirit guides will facilitate the profound process of taking back, or receiving, any life energy that was lost, drained or stolen during the traumatic experience. We will also release anything we have taken on, consciously or unconsciously. This is a safe and empowering process with the higher self of a person who has harmed, drained or disempowered us knowingly or unknowingly.
Next Steps: Layers of Trauma Recovery
Congratulations on your inner work. We recap the inner processes we have done and describe the value and practical steps to repeat the inner journeys in this course. Trauma is often a complex and multi-layered dynamic. Repeating some or all of the sessions of this course can help to integrate and heal the many parts of the self that may be dissociated, lost or stuck in trauma. Trauma recovery is a rebuilding, restructuring process and we can trust our own psyche for guidance on the order that optimal healing wants to happen.
Give yourself the gift of healing.
"Powerful, gentle, healing, life changing work. So grateful.."
