"Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going? How am I going to get there?" We've all asked these questions, but most of us have only gotten fuzzy answers, leading to a psychospiritual malaise of "whatever." Society ignores the mythopoetic notion of destiny--the idea that we have contracted with the gods to have certain experiences on earth for our enlightenment and empowerment, and so for our life's purpose and meaning. Destiny Retrieval shows how to reverse destiny loss with shamanic practices like soul clearing, pathfinding, and signpost recognition. In this comprehensive exploration, author David Kowalewski uses cross-cultural research, scientific findings, field-tested protocols, and personal experiences to unpack this ancient practice. Find out how you can be a hero in your own mind--and in your own reality--by embarking on your destiny quest with the help of shamans and their spirit allies. You can learn the costs of a purposeless and meaningless life and discover how shamans can reverse malaise with destiny-retrieval practices from the ancient past. Using a variety of practices, this guide offers an in-depth examination of the ancient shamanic craft of retrieving destiny to restore purpose and meaning in life.
