Soul Loss

We live in a time and culture in which the soul --that aspect of our truest self which attends to the needs and desires of our deepest nature-- has lost its way. As a result, our access to genuine happiness (let alone joy) and our trust in ourselves and the meaning in our life is diminished. Additionally, we have a loss of community and a sense that any problems we have are ours alone. If we do not have the resources to meet the need, we are simply out of luck. Collectively, this has led to a place where nearly every social system, from how we birth and celebrate to how we grieve, grow, and even die has become virtually soul-less. Many (if not most) feel alone, unheard, and unsupported -- oftentimes in their own families. The only cure for this is a return to the care of the soul.

In many times and tribe around the world, the care of the soul was in the province of the shaman. "Soul loss" was considered a condition of utmost urgency and quickly attended to for the benefit of both the individual and the community. Through the shaman, help was obtained from nature, archetypal forces, and guides that work beyond "consensus reality." The return of the contemporary shaman is a vital and growing movement. While there is yet much to learn, there is also much healing that is available now. It is effective regardless of age, race, religion, or belief systems.

The Soul Care Clinic offers access to shamanic help and healing through Shamanic Soul and Life Force Retrieval. Each day, there will be one or more of our shamanic practitioners offering immediate care at a discounted rate (it is not free, as some kind of exchange is needed in shamanic work, as well as in a culture that values what it pays for) for anyone in need. Our vision is for soul care to be as available as medical, dental, and mental health care are today. Click Here To Find Us On Facebook: The Soul Care Clinic

How It Works

THE SOUL CARE CLINIC was originally formed under the master guidance of Contemporary Shaman, Teacher and Waysayer Robin Rice. Our mission is to provide our community with soul care at a rate that is accessible to everyone. All practitioners are graduates of Robin's apprenticeship program.


THE 2-HOUR SESSIONS are uniform in format. The first hour is spent in a general overview of your life. This is followed by a 15-30-minute shamanic journey (if remote, this part is done off line) and then a 30-minute sharing of the journey again by phone or Skype. Issues of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being can all be addressed with special focus on current, lingering and/or traditionally unexplainable issues. This work takes place in Non-Ordinary Reality, where anything in ordinary reality can be affected. Because of this, long distance work has repeatedly proven to be as effective as in-person work. In addition, because this work is outside of time and space, often healing begins as soon as the appointment is booked.


Each practitioner is offering her services for a two-hour session at a rate of $120, with a sliding scale offered to those who are in need. Please contact the practitioner of your choice to learn more.
