Come back, lost soul. I am whistling to guide you. You are walking on moonlight.
— From the story of Medatia, first shaman of the Makiritare
In Celtic tradition, you can sing the soul back home. Gwydion, the shapeshifting shaman-poet of the Mabinogion, sings a lost soul down out of a tree by chanting a poem he composes. Guarani shamans perform soul healing by giving you the right words. When a shaman is talking to you, they say, he or she is giving you soul. Their words are soul, and the Guarani actually have a term, ayyu, that means “word soul.” This comes alive in you when your heart is touched, and the magic words enter you and change you.
We can learn to be soul singers and word doctors for each other. We can learn to grow a dream — a healing image, a soul story, a song that calls back soul — for someone who does not have a dream.
In the class you will be invited to learn the arts of dreamgrowing, story swapping and poetic enchantment for the benefit of others. You’ll learn Robert’s powerful and original Vision Transfer technique, which has brought fire and spirit to many. You’ll rejoice when you see it working in the life of someone you’ve been concerned about through the brightness of returning soul shining in their eyes.
In this module, you’ll discover how to:
- Help others connect with the animal spirits
- Grow a dream for someone in need of a dream
- Guide others to places of healing and empowerment in non-ordinary reality
- Become a “word doctor” who can help others to heal by offering them the right stories
- Find your own power songs and share them with others
