$1200 ( $1100 Early Bird )





An introductory experiential training in which you will learn about shamanism
and the shamanic journey. Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, a skill
used worldwide by shamans to enter non-ordinary reality to work with their
spirit helpers and teachers, those sources intimately connected to our life path.

In this introductory workshop, you will learn to:

Meet your Power Animal and Spirit Helpers, those sources intimately connected with your life path.
Cultivate these relationships to gain guidance, healing, and assistance.
Learn to do a Retrieval of Power for others.
Help you to explore and relate to unfamiliar fields of consciousness safely.

There are no pre-requisites; this is an introductory training.

Fulfills the pre-requisites for all advanced workshops.




4 day training with an evening ceremony on the 3rd day

The four-day workshop is designed exclusively for those who wish to bring shamanic healing techniques into their practice with others. Participants will be trained to work with the issue of soul loss, will explore the experience of partial soul loss resulting from personal trauma and illness, and will learn how to track a person’s soul and return lost essence to that individual. The course also focuses on life after soul retrieval: how to create a healthier life after healing has taken place and how to alleviate generational suffering. Individuals attending the training will perform and receive a soul retrieval during the course of the workshop and are given extensive instruction on how to work with clients after a soul retrieval through the use of shamanic journeying, ritual, and ceremony.

Success at shamanic journeying and good contact with power animals and/or teachers in non-ordinary reality is essential for participation.




Participants in this training learn how to sense and carefully remove intrusions - those energies that create imbalances in the body, mind, and  spirit. Emphasis is placed on developing relationships with loving, compassionate spirit helpers and safely merging with their power to facilitate these powerful shifts. Extractions often create the opening for effective soul retrieval integration and profound retrievals of power. Extractions find the origin of the imbalance, allowing healing to take place with lasting results.
PRE-REQUISITE: you are journeying successfully and have a working relationship with your helping spirit(s).

Anyone studying with Alida will be blessed with the best that shamanism has to offer."
-Sandra Ingerman author of Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self

Paras Paradise - TRIBE One Heartbeat
" I immediately knew this was my life work and flew to the USA to train with Alida in learning the Shamanic techniques of journeying and Soul Retrieval. The effects I witnessed just through our training was profound, inspiring, grounding, exciting and heart opening. This was work and connection to worlds beyond what we see with our eyes that I have always had and practiced, as many of us do. Upon completing my training, I knew in my heart it was time for Alida to come to Australia and teach this incredible modality. Alida also performed a dark energy extraction on me, and I have never felt the same since - just incredible - and so aware of energies entering my field that aren't mine. I'll be joining you in training in learning the extraction method, and sharing this with our community.

It's incredibly needed for those with Shamanism in their heart to step up, and train again - for ourselves, our friends and families and communities. Through conditioning Shamanic work has been almost wiped from the Earth - and we are all people of the Earth - we all know this connection in our hearts, souls, and our connection to our own ancestors. It's time for this work to be readily accessible to the community again. For our health, vitality, peacefulness and connection on Earth"

~Diana, England (Thanks to you!))
"Alida's work is powerful and life-changing. She is a clear channel to the spirit world and working with her has been a blessing to me. The sessions that I have had with her have lifted me out of a seemingly 'despairing' situation often providing me with immediate relief, peace and clarity and even facilitated a major relationship breakthrough. My teenage daughter also worked with Alida and was restored into a fuller more joyous life. Shamanic healing work has proven to be (for me and those I love) much more effective and healing than countless sessions of 'talk therapy'. I've worked with her in person and long-distance, and both sessions were equally effective. Her work as a shamanic healer and teacher are extraordinary. I recommend her highly." 

~DF, Portland
" I feel reborn with a sense of vitality...For the first time in my life, I am meeting new people....My dearest friends have told me I am different and they are enjoying the happiness that I apparently seem to exude. They all say I am doing things (activities) that I have not done for al long time...Thank you so much for your guidance and wisdom. You and your friends have helped me once again "

~DV, Oregon
"I looked in the mirror the next day and I was back. The nurse at my doctor's office was so excited to see me so vibrant again. Now my kidneys are functioning normally."
