The Shamanic Art of Calling the Soul Home

Soul retrieval  finds the lost pieces of your divine essence and puts them back into place, thereby restoring the souL

Soul Retrieval is the oldest known healing modality on the planet. National Geographic dates it back 100,000 years. It is being revived in Western Healing practices and takes years off of the need for therapy. It is thorough, mystical, and creates wholeness. I believe in Soul Retrieval.

I have dedicated my life path and my career to this practice.

As a healer, I have personally done more than 3,500 soul retrievals, and have used this immense amount of experience to obtain information from the spirits evolving this practice to a new level that I offer to train practitioners at LightSong.

What our community members say…

Jan’s art is not just teaching shamanic journeying, but in coloring the experience with ancient wisdom, personal experience, and immense joy. This course is pulsed with high-vibrational energy from the very start. Jan weaves indigenous stories with her own as she guides students through a process that is as much awe-inspiring as it is familiar. This material helped me to remember who I truly am. The world needs Jan’s love and art.

Wow! Through the Rabbit Hole has been life changing! This information has impacted my life and continues to do so daily in ways I never could have imagined. This technique (or tool) to access information and healing from the spirit realm (or universal consciousness) has not only allowed me to make better choices for myself and to help others, it has opened a doorway to see how magical and magnificent life truly is, how connected we are to "all that is". I have learned to live more fully and be present in my own life, and to have an awareness of being part of Great Love and Great Mystery.

Jan has an amazing ability to teach and to live with an open heart, and she presents material in ways that are easy to understand and to use. She is truly a great teacher and healer!

In Through the Rabbit Hole: Explore and Experience the Shamanic Journey and Energy Medicine, Jan Engels-Smith applies the wisdom she has gained from years of soul-work in various spiritual disciplines to the basic practices of shamanism. As an adept shamanic teacher, she graciously leads the student through the basics of shamanism, answering the many questions that often plague newcomers to shamanic practice. And those who already know the basics of shamanism will find potent reminders of the valuable insights that derive from shamanic practice.
