Our ancestors on the North West Coast of British Columbia believe that when a person experiences a traumatic event, such as a near drowning, that a part of their soul is lost, it breaks away and remains in the geographic location until healing is sought to retrieve the missing part of the victim. When we lose a part of self through trauma, through violence, through abuse or neglect, this is called soul loss.
Soul retrieval is the ability to return to the traumatic event to retrieve the missing part of self. Returning enables the soul–emotions, beliefs and physiological experiences–to become clear. Returning enables the individual to bring together splintered parts of spirit, body and mind.
