“The Basics of Living Well: Boundaries and Protection” on the Sept. 16 Episode of Why Shamanism Now?

On her radio show "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity”, teacher, author, and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt focuses on protecting one’s energy and the importance of boundaries in Part 3 of her series on “The Basics of Living Well.”

Portland, OR, September 02, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Streaming live on the Voice America Network (www.voiceamerica.com) on Wednesday, September 16 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 focuses on how conserving and protecting your energy resources are essential for you to Live Well, regardless of the path you are on.

In this third installment of the “The Basics of Living Well” series, listeners will learn the hows and whys of boundaries and protection. According to Pratt, whether you are engaged in religion, spirituality, shamanism, or just living life, you are still an energy being living in an energy world. It takes energy and resources to live our soul’s purpose. Energy flows downhill. That means that your energy will flow away into everything around you that has less quantity, quality, refinement, or consciousness of energy.

Pratt suggests that, unless you have boundaries and protection, you will constantly lose energy and experience miscommunication and dissatisfaction in relationships. Shamanic peoples understand this simple fact of energy, and engage the natural protection of the spirit world to reinforce their boundaries. In this show about “Boundaries & Protection,” listeners will learn that healthy boundaries allow focus and resources to flow into them and their soul’s purpose.
