Alida Birch is a teacher of shamanism and spiritual healing in Eugene Oregon, offering introductory and advanced trainings in the shamanic journey, shamanic healing, and soul retrieval.. Trained in soul retrieval by Sandra Ingerman and certified in shamanic counseling by Michael Harner, Alida assists her clients to heal the past and to create a life of joy. She received her shamanic initiation in the 1980's, has facilitated thousands of soul retrievals, and has been training others for three decades. Her first book, The Co-Creation Handbook: A Shamanic Guide to Manifesting a Better World & a More Joyful Life, is now available as a paperback, e-book, and audiobook.
Alida performs shamanic healings of all sorts, including soul retrieval, the retrieval of power, long-distance healings, and spiritual extractions. During this time, all sessions are performed long-distance.
WHAT ALIDA WILL DO TO HELP YOU: Shamanic healing can offer immediate help to those suffering pain from abuse, trauma, or injury. It can restore your sense of power, giving you renewed strength in your daily life. It addresses the spiritual components of illness making other forms of treatment more effective (and sometimes performing miracle healings). Alida can retrieve your own helping spirits who can give you wisdom and a sense of comfort and well being. Shamanic work speeds physical and emotional recovery, making your days brighter faster.
For more information about specific shamanic healing methods, go to the links to the right or, if on a mobile site, down below.
When you contact Alida, tell her what problems you would like to overcome. Maybe it is a sense of emptiness, a physical pain, emotional hurt, loss of early childhood memory, or unresolved grief. If you want a particular treatment, such as soul retrieval, request it.

How to Receive a Shamanic Healing
Before paying for a long distance session, Alida must agree to work with you.
First, contact me through the contact form to ask if I am available to work with you. Briefly describe what you need help with.
If I find it is a 'go' to work with you, I will send you an invoice from Paypal (if you are long distance). Local clients can pay by check or cash. Long-distance clients may pay by PayPal or check. Alida charges $150 for a session. Pay Pal can use either your credit card, debit card, or can make a direct withdrawal from your checking account. Cancellation Policy: Once the payment has been made, there is a $25 cancellation fee for the administration of the refund.
Long-distance clients: if paying by check, the funds must clear before the healing session is performed.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW TO RECEIVE THE MOST FROM A LONG DISTANCE HEALING SESSION
This work is not bounded by the constraints of either time or space. For this reason, long-distance healing can be as effective as in-person healing. The compassionate spirits are willing to work on your behalf no matter where you are at the time. For them, place and time are irrelevant. We, as humans, may have difficulty acknowledging the power of long-distance work. For that reason, the spirits have given me a set of guidelines to prepare you:
Write down a list of issues or goals you would like help with. Communicate these to me via phone or e-mail.
We will make an appointment for the healing work just as if you were going to be there. (Example: Margaret is in Maine. She makes an appointment for a healing session at 10 am on July 15th. Margaret writes the appointment in her calendar).
Here is your writing/imagining assignment: Go back to your list and re-read. Now start a fresh sheet of paper and ask yourself "What is the truest and most beautiful story about my life that I can imagine?" Let your imagination tell you a story. Let it start to show you what is possible.
At the appointment time, Zoom or call Alida for a discussion of what you would like help with. This may last 5 to 15 minutes. - Although it is ideal to sit quietly through the session (about an hour) it is not essential. Your conscious attention is one way of helping your ego to accept that work has been done on your behalf.
Alida will first do a diagnostic journey to learn what her spirits believe is the best course of action. Then she will journey to do the work they suggest, often the treatment you requested - but sometimes a different course. The spirits know what is best for you and help you accordingly. Alida will record the journey on a Digital Voice Recorder, capturing the messages her spirits give for you to hear. She will describe the work performed and give you follow up exercises to make sure the power "sticks". This may include doing brief meditations daily, checking inside yourself to feel the spirits she retrieved, and asking them for help and wisdom. Or it may include a "prescription" from the spirits, such as getting more sleep, improving your diet, visualizing healing in your body, etc. (Please - think of shamanic work as a complement to modern medicine, not as a substitute.)
After the session she will send the recording over the internet to your mailbox. The recording will relay the information from the shamanic work along with any recommendations. When you receive the recording, listen to it in a quiet space. You may have noticed changes in yourself already.
