Bernard Becker created Integrative Shamanic Therapy (IST) with the intent of bringing together ancient indigenous wisdom and modern psychology.   IST helps individuals heal past traumatic experiences, navigate through life transitions, and progress toward wholeness and self-actualization.  Bernard Becker focuses on the relationship between body, mind, soul and spirit, and on the unique expression of the spirit of Life in each individual.  IST combines elements of depth psychology, transpersonal psychology, shamanism, and mindfulness. IST helps individuals uncover and tend to the psychological and spiritual blocks responsible of their existing concerns and/or symptoms, as well as reconnect with their innate life power.  Moreover, by supporting the compassionate exploration of one’s internal reality, IST fosters the development of intuition and creativity, as well as the recognition of one’s unique soul’s gifts and the ways to express them successfully in one’s personal, relational, professional, and spiritual life.
