Q&A – Breaking Unconscious Patterns

Posted by on 10 Dec 2013 in Q&A | 0 comments

Dear Kelley, I am writing with great anxiety, pain, and desperation because of a deep sense of loss and sadness and affection, of which I cannot make sense. I have found myself feeling very attached to a man I met briefly a few months ago, and with whom I have kept in contact online. Since meeting him I have felt so powerfully drawn, and deep pain in my heart in ways I have not felt ever before. We live in opposite sides of the world, different lives, etc. Part of me wants to somehow break ‘free’ from this, yet I feel as though I am being punished. Any advice, guidance would be deeply appreciated. Many thanks in advance, Liz. Thanks for your note, Liz. When...

Tragedy, Collective Soul Loss, and the Healing Story

Posted by on 5 Jan 2013 in Essay, Huffington Post | 0 comments

In shamanic work is the concept of soul loss, or when an aspect of the soul has become distanced (I describe it as “shelved”) and can’t re-engage with the earthly consciousness. Souls are infinite, made up of limitless soul parts that travel in and out of our awareness. This soul traveling is the natural progress of growth, widening our awareness, expanding our consciousness. In times of trauma, when a soul part leaves and can’t return to the earthly consciousness, that’s when problems arise: chronic illness, feelings of depression, lack of motivation, feelings of not being completely present. Such is the path of soul loss in an individual....

Gift of the Dreamtime – Awakening to the Divinity of Trauma

Available on: Amazon In the 8th year of its journey, bestseller Gift of the Dreamtime is now available in its second edition, in several ebook formats.

Groundbreaking at the time of its first publication in 2004, still no other modern shamanic work shares an experience of soul healing told from within the shamanic narrative, bringing relatable and credible insight to contemporary shamanic healing. Through that rare glimpse into...

Wise Voice, Author and Modern Shaman–Dawn Paul

Posted by on 18 Nov 2012 in Wise Voice | 0 comments

I learned about Dawn when I read about the December release of her book, “Healer of Souls.”  Based in St Albans Hertfordshire, she has a thriving shamanic practice as both a healer and teacher. How does one become a Healer of souls? Much time has passed since I received a vision of the Inca while at Machu Picchu, Peru, who told me in no uncertain terms that I was to follow the path of the shaman – and that they would help me. And now I see that they have kept their word, as for many years now I have run a thriving shamanic practice, assisting thousands of people from all over the world. These people have come from all walks of life and from all...

Mindfulness and Animism: The Art of Soul Healing

Posted by on 14 Nov 2012 in Huffington Post, Repost | 2 comments

Originally published on the Huffington Post.  Follow me there for updates to my Huffington Modern Animism blog. When I began my shamanic practice almost 15 years ago, I found very different cultural perceptions of modern soul healing than those I run into now. I’ve written about contemporary approaches to shamanism, and how we have remade our perceptions of soul healing. Many people now know what a shaman is, what a shaman does. They know concepts that a mere decade ago were shrouded in mystery: soul retrieval, soul loss, soul wound. In the more recent years of my shamanic practice, I find a pervasive belief that soul healing should in and of itself be enough....
