One of the main techniques of shamanism, and the method I use the most, is called “Soul Retrieval”, but to understand why you might want or need a soul retrieval you first need to understand “Soul Loss”. In this video of a portion of my talk to the Luminosity Group in Pagosa Springs, CO, I tell a story of soul loss and relate it to Dr. Stuart Brown’s “7 Properties of Play.” This is a simple way to see how soul loss is common to everyone and in associating soul loss with play – something we all relate to – we come to easily understand the concept.
