Sandra Ingerman integrates her shamanic studies and experience into her work as a modern psychotherapist. Part of me sees her work as too willing to accept the superstitions (in my postmodern world) of shamanism. But I also see the psychological value in what she does.
Here she explains her practice in this 30 minute interview.

Very interesting interview with shamanic healer, psychotherapist, and author Sandra Ingerman. Her book Soul Retrieval is considered by many to be the seminal text on this cross-cultural, shamanic healing practice. In this interview she explains the mechanism of soul loss and the importance of retrieving and integrating these scattered pieces of self. She also discusses why and how so many of us have submerged our inner light, to live as cogs in an industrialized society, rather than living our soul's purpose.
