PORTLAND, OR, March 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, March 11, at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern on "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity," shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt notes that those who engage in life and live it to its fullest die many, many small deaths. When we live fully, learning, healing, and expressing who we truly are rather than the person we have been is regularly outmoded by our growth. Death is necessary if we are to move authentically in the world. According to Pratt, nowhere is this more important than in our shamanic practice and our choice of shamans to help us.
In this week's episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" titled "Life and Death: Authenticity in Shamanism", Pratt explores our misconceptions of what makes shamanism "real." She tells listeners that authenticity in shamanism requires the sacrifice of contemporary sense of entitlement. Authenticity requires sacrifice of the old mind and ideas of individuality and separation for the greater awareness of the interconnectivity of all things. Authenticity requires sacrifice of the old heart and feelings of selfish, need-based love for selfless surrender to the calling to serve the people and the planet and the times we live in.
Christina Pratt is a contemporary shaman specializing in mending the soul and transforming the parts of life that feel impossible. A teacher of exceptional clarity, humor, and inspiration, Pratt brings the power of shamanism into the practical grasp of anyone willing to take responsibility for improving the quality of their life. Her book An Encyclopedia of Shamanism clearly discusses the basic concepts of shamanism, methods, and traditions of over 50 different shamanic peoples. Pratt is the founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing, creator of the original Foundations of Shamanism and Shamanic Healing course at the University of Minnesota, and a frequent and honored speaker for the American Holistic Medical Association.
