“Why Weekend Workshops Don’t Get Us Our Soul’s Purpose.” Why Shamanism Now? Radio Show on June 17.

Teacher, author, and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt talks about how taking weekend workshops don’t provide the depth that reveal our soul’s purpose on her show "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity."

Portland, OR, June 13, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Streaming live on the Voice America Network (www.voiceamerica.com) on Wednesday, June 17 at 2 p.m. Pacific time/5 p.m. Eastern time, on her show "Why Shamanism Now?", founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt explores the following questions: Why does the passion that lives so simply within each of use prove so elusive for so many people? You have read the books, listened to the psychics, and taken all of those weekend workshops. So… what’s your purpose? We are like a ship at sea and our soul’s purpose is the star by which we navigate. Life has tides, currents, storms and sea monsters. You must learn to right your ship and re-set your course. Is your ship even seaworthy? Do you know which star?

In this episode of "Why Shamanism Now? – Why Weekend Workshops Don’t Get Us Our Soul’s Purpose”, host and shaman Pratt states that living your life as an expression of your soul’s purpose requires a transformation from who you learned to be as a child to who you are called to be by your soul. You must learn to hear the voice of your soul and the discerning voice of your passion. You must gain the skills of transformation. You must step free of your life story, leaving the Wounded Child behind and choosing to grow up. You must risk. Pratt talks about why you can’t get this type of transformation in a weekend, but you can get it through shamanism.

Pratt is the founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing in Portland, OR, and New York, NY, 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.
