Perhaps the most well known practice of shamanic healing is Soul Retrieval. Found in most, if not all, shamanic cultures, this work returns parts of a person that, for whatever reasons, had left them. After soul parts return, a person can become more whole and regain some personal power.
Commonly, the shamanic practitioner goes on a journey using the ancient shamanic technique of soul-flight. She or he engages in a search for missing soul parts and is then instrumental in their return. Clients very often report dramatic benefits and positive life changes.
