SOUL RETRIEVAL CEREMONY with maggie harrsen 

Join us from near and far for a relaxing 2-day ceremonial class/retreat for those who feel called to open into the deep healing of their soul and nourish their body with the healing foods of Mother Earth. A sacred circle of six women, representing the six directions - South, West, North, East, Below (Pachamama) and Above (Cosmos). Join us as we learn about the native ceremony of soul retrieval and remember our birthright. Each individual will receive a Soul Retrieval Ceremony and Soul Remembering. Together we will explore our inner garden as the heartbeat of Mother Earth takes us into an altered state on a Shamanic Drum Journey. Through this newfound wisdom and expanded perception, we will release the past through the creation of a driftwood Talisman and plant seeds that represent the flowers - of our heart, our dreams, our visions, our spirit. Come together as we support one another in community, as a soul family, coming home to the truth and divine essence that lives within us.

Soul retrieval is an individual ceremony to call back soul pieces that have left us and traveled to Pachamama for protection. It is believed that when we suffer shock from an emotional or physical trauma a part of our soul, our light essence, flees the body in order to survive the experience. This ceremony is for individuals who seek to live in wholeness and spiritual harmony, to live in alignment with their souls path and remember the gifts they were born with. This ceremony was passed onto Maggie through the lineage of the Qero Indians of Peru and the modern-day teachings of her mentor and teacher, Sandra Ingerman. This ceremony involves the use of native sound including drum, rattle and bells and the smoke of sacred plant spirit, Palo Santo. To learn more, Soul Retrieval Ceremony

 

Maggie Harrsen is a Shamanic Practitioner (a modern day medicine woman & ceremonialist) inspiring beings to uncover their true nature and supporting them in a lifestyle of harmony and in rhythm with Pachamama, Mother Earth. She was initiated into the Andean Path as a Kuraq Akulleq, a 4th level Andean wisdomkeeper, in the Inka tradition and is a Mesa carrier of the Q'ero lineage of the Andes.   

Since 2008, her path aligned with studying a range of healing practices including shamanism, Andean mysticism, energy medicine, plant-based nourishment, Usui & shamanic reiki and meditation. She currently lives and works in Sag Harbor, New York, offering individual healing sessions for women/men/children, ceremony and teaching intimate classes. Maggie holds the sacred space for healing, working within the luminous energy field to access ones natural state of wellbeing in mind, body and spirit. She is grateful to the wisdom passed onto her by beloved teachers and mentors from around the world.
