A private, individual shamanic healing session with Byron utilizes specially developed HoloShamanic variations of journeywork, breathwork, personal inquiry, energy work, and the use of music, sound, and sound healing, brainwave entrainment technologies. As appropriate, varied aspects of these methods and exercises are incorporated to support each individual client’s level of shamanic and spiritual understanding and development.
During the course of a shamanic healing session, activities in which the client engages are strictly voluntary. The client is invited to experience and use particular methods in their ongoing understanding of themselves. Each person’s uniqueness is respected and supported as it emerges and unfolds towards its full potentiality. There is no attempt to lead or point the client toward any specific perspective, position, or understanding. During this process, the client is supported and encouraged in discovering the truth in whatever is unfolding in their experience. Much of the progress is a function of the client’s intentionality and inspiration. (Contact Byron for a more detailed description of the shamanic healing process, exercises, and methods.)
During a shamanic healing session, It is not uncommon for experiences of soul recovery, and extraction of negative/toxic energies and intrusions to occur. Sometimes these can be spontaneous experiences during a session or can be experienced over an extended time frame. An increased capacity for seeking and receiving knowledge and insights from higher sources (the spirit world) is also quite common and is general seen as a natural outcome of doing this kind of work.
The primary differences in Byron’s shamanic healing approach and traditional shamanic methods are the intention of the client and the methods employed by Byron. For example, in a typical soul retrieval session, as described by Sandra Ingerman and others, the shamanic practitioner will journey on behalf of the client to locate, bring back (retrieve) the lost soul parts of the client. The dramatic effectiveness of this method is well documented. However, Byron approaches the issue of soul loss somewhat differently and uses the term “soul recovery” instead of “soul retrieval” as a way to highlight the differences. In this soul recovery process, the client assumes a much more active role. The client and practitioner work together as a team, utilizing a variety of methods, including journeying, shamanic heart work, personal inquiry, and sound healing to clear away energies and patterns that are blocking the natural return of the client’s missing soul parts or essence. Eventually the soul recovery process is being fully directed by the inner wisdom of the client/student. This results in greater self-empowerment, expanded integration of the soul recovery process, and less dependence on the shamanic practitioner. Although this approach usually requires more than one shamanic healing session, the results are deep and profound and well worth the time and effort.
