Cultures throughout time have understood that the quest of a soul after it has left the body is to find its way home. While belief about where that home is varies across cultures, it is generally accepted that some souls struggle to find their way. It is the souls who have become, for whatever reason, lost on their way back home that the psychopomp helps.
The shaman will team up with some of their helping spirits to locate ‘lost’ souls and then establish ways to help them along the way so that they continue their journey home.
For those who are called to this work, they find it a beautiful experience to witness completion of the soul’s journey homeward. In this time when there are so few practitioners engaging in this work, it is certainly well needed.
