About Claudia Goncalves
Born in Minas Gerais, Brazil, Claudia Goncalves carries the profound wisdom and sacred healing traditions passed down to her by her grandmothers. With a deep reverence for the spiritual path, Claudia embarked on her shamanic journey at the age of 13 under the guidance of elder Dona Mercedes.
After moving to the UK in 1994, Claudia's personal transformational development took on a new dimension soon after her Rites of Passage of becoming a mother for two young children. In 2001, she received a powerful calling from her great-grandmother's spirit during a sweat lodge ceremony, urging her to step into her life's work. Guided by spirits and receiving teachings from both inner and external sources, Claudia dedicated herself fully to the shamanic path.
In October 2003, Claudia and her husband, Mark Halliday, co-founded The Edinburgh Shamanic Centre. Today, they offer a range of shamanic training programs, guided meditation training, Feather Stone Energy Healing work, and various ceremonies to serve the community.
Additionally, Claudia co-founded Youth Vision Charity in 2005 alongside Sara Beauregard. Youth Vision focuses on guiding young people aged 14 to 24 through the transformative process of transitioning from childhood to adulthood.
Claudia also provides support for couples experiencing relationship challenges, empowering each individual to reclaim their personal power, dissolve projections, and grow spiritually, allowing their love and light to flow freely.
Through her one-on-one sessions and group work, Claudia offers a range of healing modalities, including Shamanic Healing, Rites of Passage, Goddess Initiation, and Transformational Healing.
To maintain inner balance and strength, Claudia regularly practices yoga. During December, January, and February, she takes time off to replenish her energy in her homeland of Brazil and to learn from indigenous communities.
In 2009, Claudia was featured in the documentary The Edge of Dreaming by Scottish filmmaker Amy Hardie, further demonstrating her profound spiritual insights.
A brief description of Claudia from the Book What to look for in the Winter: A memoir in Blindness (2010) by Scottish writer Candia McWilliam:
Shaman-Claudia's personal tone was calm, amused, taken at a magnificently easy pace. It is unusual for the very small to be magnificent. Her own magnificence lay in this: That, like a creature, she was at once serious and weightless. She was one of those rare people from whom you get the strong sense of what the world is to them and how it would be to be loved by them. She was both unstrained and entertaining. It was hard to be defended or harsh near her.
Claudia Goncalves is a beacon of wisdom and compassion, she inspires and guide individuals on their transformative journeys toward healing, empowerment, and spiritual growth.
What is Shamanic Healing?
Shamanic Healing focuses on addressing the spiritual and psychic aspects of illnesses, perceiving them as energies that have manifested in inappropriate places or forms. These energetic imbalances often hinder the person's life force, preventing the natural balance and flow. The primary objective of Shamanic Healing is to remove energy blockages, retrieve lost soul fragments, and restore harmony, ultimately revitalizing the person's energy and spirituality.
Healing occurs when a transformation, shift, expansion, or improvement takes place within an individual. It can manifest on emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual levels. Shamanic work specifically aims to heal and restore the spirit at the soul level, understanding that such healing often has a profound ripple effect on other aspects of one's being.
However, true healing cannot transpire if a person remains disempowered. Therefore, the initial step in Shamanic Healing is to empower the individual. This is achieved by invoking the person's spirit helpers and establishing a connection between them. These spirit helpers provide power, energy, and unwavering support throughout the healing process.
Spiritual traditions may differ, but common spirit helpers include angelic beings, ancestors, indigenous peoples, power animal spirits, and other luminous beings associated with the person's own spiritual path. These benevolent beings willingly offer their service to assist in the healing journey.
What is Soul Retrieval?
Soul retrieval is a profound healing practice that addresses the effects of trauma, whether big or small, on our spiritual essence. When we experience trauma, a part of our soul, our very essence, may separate from our body and seek safety elsewhere, leaving us to cope or survive. Sometimes, we may unintentionally give away fragments of ourselves to those we love, or through abuse and neglect, we may lose vital aspects of our soul. This process of soul loss serves as a coping mechanism for our mental, physical, and emotional well-being.
As human beings, we possess an innate adaptation mechanism for survival, and this mechanism allows a part of our essence, our life force, to exist in other dimensions. However, when soul loss occurs, we are left with an indescribable feeling that something essential is missing from within. It may manifest as a sense of disconnection, lack of presence, confusion, a struggle to find clarity or purpose, being trapped in cycles of suffering and pain, or even experiencing depression and intrusive thoughts. Childhood trauma is often a significant catalyst for the need for soul retrieval.
Through the guidance of a skilled shamanic practitioner, our inner helpers and spiritual allies reveal the number of soul parts that need to be reintegrated to address specific challenges in our lives. When healing occurs at the soul level and the reunion takes place, it often triggers transformative effects in all other aspects of our being. Despite its simplicity, soul retrieval stands as one of the most potent forms of shamanic healing, unlocking deep layers of healing and restoration.
Extraction Work: cleansing and clearing intrusive energies
One of the most common concerns presented to Shamanic practitioners is the presence of intrusive energies within a person's energetic field. When there is a hole or vulnerability in the energy field, negative energies can enter and take residence in that space. Over time, these energies can manifest as negative thoughts, inappropriate behavior towards others, physical ailments or pain, and at times, even intrusive and self-destructive thoughts. It is worth noting that these energies may also originate from external sources, such as envy, ill intentions, or directed anger from others.
During an extraction session, the Shamanic practitioner skillfully identifies the intrusion and facilitates its removal from the person's energetic field. This ancient healing technique requires the practitioner to possess sufficient power, emphasising the importance of cultivating a delicate balance between determination and compassion. This equilibrium is fundamental for the success of an extraction work.
By conducting extraction work, we aim to cleanse and clear the individual's energetic field, restoring harmony, balance, and overall well-being. The removal of intrusive energies enables the person to regain their energetic sovereignty, freeing them from the detrimental effects caused by these unwelcome forces.
Through this transformative practice, individuals can experience a renewed sense of vitality, clarity, and empowerment as they embark on their healing journey.
Past Life Work: Exploring the Depths of the Soul's Journey
As the boundaries between the spiritual and physical realms continue to diminish, an increasing number of individuals seek shamanic assistance to address the challenges originating from past life experiences. Recognising that we are multidimensional beings, walking the shamanic path allows us to transcend the constraints of time. Through this remarkable journey, we can delve into past lives to facilitate profound healing and transformation.
Past life exploration has emerged as a powerful avenue for understanding and resolving present-day issues rooted in the tapestry of previous incarnations. By venturing into these depths, we gain insights into the interwoven threads of our soul's journey and unlock the wisdom and lessons embedded within.
In the realm of shamanic practice, time becomes an illusion as we navigate through the corridors of past lives, shedding light on unresolved traumas, patterns, and connections. By embracing this transformative process, we create space for healing purposes, allowing the energies of past experiences to be acknowledged, integrated, and released.
Engaging in past life work enables us to transcend the limitations of the present moment, accessing a broader perspective and a deeper understanding of ourselves. It opens pathways for profound self-discovery, self-healing, and spiritual growth, fostering a profound connection to the tapestry of our soul's journey.
Through the shamanic lens, we embark on an extraordinary voyage into the mysteries of the past, reclaiming fragments of our essence, and weaving them into the tapestry of our present lives.
