Shananism “… the experiences that are called ‘visions,’ the whole so-called
‘spirit world,’ death, all those things that are so closely akin to
us, have by daily parrying been so crowded out of life that the
senses with which we could have grasped them are atrophied.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet, #8

    This article is mainly taken from the ideas discussed in Sandra Ingerman’s book called Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self.  In this book Ingerman discusses the techniques a shaman uses to retrieve parts of a person that have left them when a traumatic situation has occurred.  These situations can range from anything which some would consider insignificant like the loss of a toy as a child to sexual and physical abuse.
