Narrye Caldwell, L.Ac.
Welcome to Cold Spring Healing Arts. Over the past 30 years I have developed expertise in a number of traditional healing methods that I now offer in my private practice and teaching. My early training was in Traditional Chinese Medicine and martial arts, and these still inform my view of what it means to cultivate health, beauty, and wisdom in the modern world. I also have in depth training and advanced initiations in core shamanism with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I am currently on the FSS faculty, teaching the full complement of in-person and online workshops in core shamanism.
I invite you to reach out to me through the contact form on this site. Let me know what you’d like help with, or what you’re curious about. Also check out my classes and workshops, or put yourself on my mailing list (click on the photo at the bottom of the column on the right) to receive announcements about new offerings.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope to meet you soon!
Workshops in Core Shamanism
“After having personally practiced shamanism, shamanic healing, and shamanic journeying for more than half a century, I can say that there is nothing I have encountered in reports of the spiritual experiences of saints, prophets, psychedelic drug experimenters, near death survivors, avatars and other mystics that is not commonly experienced when following classic journey methods using a drum.” — Michael Harner
As a faculty member with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, founded by Dr. Michael Harner, I teach the full complement of online and in-person workshops in core shamanism.
Way of the Shaman: Shamanic Journeying, Power, and Healing, is the prerequisite workshop for all in-person advanced shamanic healing trainings. The Shamanic Journey: Pathway to Knowledge and Power followed by Divination in Practice, are the prerequisites for more advanced online workshops. Check out the Getting Started page on the FSS website for more information about trainings in core shamanism.
UPCOMING IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS
Power Soul Retrieval Training™
Taught by Narrye Caldwell
Nov. 4 & 5, 2023
10-5:30 Saturday, 10:30-6:00 Sunday
We will be gathering at a beautiful retreat center just minutes from downtown Soquel (Santa Cruz area.)
Tuition: $295 ($275 until Oct. 6)
Learning shamanism is not just a matter of acquiring methods, but also of increasing spiritual power and knowing how to use it. From the shamanic point of view, people who are not spiritually “power-filled” are prone to illness, accidents, and misfortune. Anyone who has had a traumatic experience may lose a portion of their soul, of their spiritual essence. There are also other reasons this may occur. In this workshop, participants will learn about soul loss and soul retrieval from a shamanic perspective. There will be a particular emphasis on the importance of shamanic power to do successful soul retrieval. Participants will also learn how to re-empower a client’s soul after it has been returned so that the client is once again spiritually power-filled, leading to greater health and well-being. This soul retrieval training is based on worldwide core principles and methods. It does not require Western psychological perspectives and practices.
PREREQUISITE FSS WORKSHOPS: Because effective soul retrieval practice is based in shamanic power, which comes from strong connections with helping spirits and advanced practice in shamanism, participation in this program requires additional prerequisites.
