“How Do I Being Shamanic Healing?” on January 3 Why Shamanism Now? Radio Show with Christina Pratt On her radio show "Why Shamanism Now?”, shaman and host Christina Pratt advises listeners on how to begin exploring shamanic healing, and what can they expect from setting down this path.
BigNews.Biz - Dec 31,2011 - Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network (www.co-creatornetwork.com) on Tuesday, December 27, at 11 a.m. Pacific time/2 p.m. Eastern time, on her show "Why Shamanism Now?: A Practical Path to Authenticity,” shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt answers the questions: How do you begin shamanic healing? And perhaps more importantly, why would one start down the path of shamanic healing? According to Pratt, contemporary people begin to explore the path of shamanic healing usually because nothing else is working or they simply know something is missing. There is a growing frustration with the unfulfilled promises of pharmaceutical and surgical medicine and a growing irritation with the vacuous “you get what you need” response to our reasonable desire for efficacy and accountability when turning to alternative care. Pratt tells listeners that shamanic healing with an initiated shaman offers direct access to the source of the inner dissonance that we experience as illness or disease in our mental, physical or spiritual lives. Often shamanism offers a direct response to our pain and suffering, like a soul retrieval or extraction, in just one session. Just as often the source of the problem is a bit more than we asked for, like ancestral healing and a strong need for a real personal daily practice. Nonetheless, the path forward is clear, practical, and doable.
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “How Do I Begin Shamanic Healing?,” Pratt shares her experience and expertise in answering the title question, as well as telling listeners what is reasonable to expect from a shaman and what a shaman will expect with them.
