2120 South Grand Boulevard
Saint Louis, MO

Your soul has known, and will know, many shapes.

It carries within it the wisdom to support you throughout your soul’s blossoming. In its sacred dance with the body – through choices, trauma, habits – pieces of soul can lose their connection to a lifetime. In these moments, shamanic soul retrieval can summon your soul parts home.

Join Jennifer L. Jacoby in the Mystic Salon as she discusses the shamanic nature of the soul and the healing practice of shamanic soul retrieval. Discover the patterns that whisper of soul loss and the pathway to restoring wholeness.

Come, welcome your soul home!

You MUST RSVP for this event on our website: Mystic Salon
