Review by Ravenari
I'm a fan of this book, though some of it seems to be repetitive. Sandra Ingerman is a counsellor, and it shows throughout the book. For those who are interested in the psychological uses of soul retrieval (and extraction), as well as how to combine shamanic techniques with standard CBT techniques, this is a good book fr you. Sandra is respectful enough towards the modality of soul retrieval that she recommends that no beginner attempts it, but this to me is hindered by the fact that she rarely refers to the origins of soul retrieval, or how its practice radically differs from culture to culture. Her own practice seems to be a mishmash that may have derived from Core Shamanism theories. The book however, remains useful and interesting, despite its flaws. For those interested in soul retrieval as a healing modality, this is a worthy addition to a bookshelf.
