Soul Matters: Modern Science Confirming Ancient Wisdom
Healing at the Interface of Spirit and Matter
Jeanne-Rachel Salomon PhD, Sandra Ingerman MA
In shamanic understanding, trauma signifies soul-loss. To restore a person to wholeness, the shaman journeys into non-ordinary reality to retrieve the person’s lost soul essence and restores it to the client in ordinary reality. Shamans knew intuitively that existence is a product of consciousness, and that soul requires body to enter physicality, and body requires soul to express life. Yet, there is only a set amount of physical pain and mental/emotional disturbance that an embodied soul can tolerate. Out of self-preservation, a part of the soul leaves just prior to the trauma impact, and retreats - unharmed - into non-ordinary reality, away from physical ordinary reality. This book presents the author’s unique and creative research into the millennia-old shamanic healing modality of Soul Retrieval. Dr. Salomon found that the fundamentals of the shamanic healing method are aligned with quantum principals and that the phenomenon of soul-leaving and soul-returning happens on the quantum-level of existence. The results of her study confirm the relevance of quantum physics’ tenets of non-locality, tangled hierarchy and discontinuity inside shamanic healing. “Shamanism is not well understood by most people. Dr. Salomon has the intelligence and willingness to do the hard work to bring the validity and reliability of good science to the public. Her thoroughness of a difficult subject is clear and understandable. A must read for anyone interested in learning about the laws of the universe and how it affects each of us every day.” – Jeffrey L. Fannin, Ph.D.
