A little story i want to share with u, that i came across online. 

A Deer is an animal of love, tenderness,and swiftness. There is an old story about
the animal kingdom wanting to get into heaven to see the Almighty God.
At a council meeting all the animals stood up to tell why they would be the most appropriate one
to get to the kingdom of God. The Bear stood up and said,
" I, Bear , who is the strongest bravest creature will go to see the Creator".
Upon the road to the Creator stood a big , nasty, monster. 
The bear took one look and ran back to the animal kingdom to tell of the nasty, monster.
The Eagle Screeched, "I will fly over the monster to get to see the Creator". Off went the eagle.
He flew higher and higher and got closer to the kingdom of the Creator than any other animal before.
He started to screech a prayer. "Almighty Great Creator, I so would like to see You".
The Almighty Creator said, "It is true you are the best at reaching high enough to talk to me,
but a messenger is all you will be. Tell the rest of the animals that they have to go through the red road of truth to find me".
The eagle said to The Almighty Creator," But there is a monster in the way , how can we cross?
The Almighty said no further. The eagle went back and told all the animals of what the Almighty had said to him.
and all the animals started to fight and argue. 
The Deer hearing such a roar jumped so high he landed right in front of the nasty monster.
The deer looked into the eyes of the monster and stared. 
The monster looked deep into the deer's eyes and saw
love, warmth and tenderness, and upon seeing that the monster melted away. 
And so the deer was the first to go through the red road of truth to see the Almighty.

this seems pretty on spot to me, from personal experiance.

all indigenous cultures believe that each person has multiple souls so one should get out of their Judeo-Christian idea of a single soul concept before even beginning to understand what "soul retrieval" is or isn't about. It is one of the particular other souls that gets lost or captured by harmful spirits which must then be restored to the client.

From my studies, great deal of Shamanic traditions do in fact work with the aspects of "Soul Retreival", although this is not necessarily something that had left or was gone, but rather something that was "lost" or "out of touch" with, as well as just certain aspects of the soul or "self".

Comment by Beau D. A. on December 30, 2012 at 10:28pm

So with that idea in mind, how does the body react when the soul has left? The body will lose value and reasoning for everything including itself?


Comment by Jan Van on December 28, 2012 at 8:40am

in classical shamanism they don't return the soul to the body

Comment by Wina Niehaus on December 28, 2012 at 3:17am

"It has always been the role of the shaman to go into an             altered state of consciousness and track down where the soul             fled to in the alternate realities and return it to the body             of the client." -- Sandra Ingerman


"'Beside himself.' Why do we describe a distraught person             as being 'beside himself'? Because the ancients believed             that soul and body could part, and that under great             emotional stress the soul would actually leave the body.             When this happened a person was 'beside himself.' '"

Until recently, I didn't understand that the soul can be lost, or that
you can literary lose pieces of your soul due to extreme hardship, sorrow or illness. The question now is not how much the human body can endure, but how much the soul can endure?
