)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network (www.co-creatornetwork.com) on Tuesday, November 23, 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 says that many have asked if shamanic healing might help with our animals or pets. To answer this question, Pratt speaks with speaks with Carla Meeske, the shaman who pioneered Shamanic Method for Animal Communication. According to Meeske, shamanic healing with animals is the same in many ways as it is with humans. Animals lose soul parts and take on invasive energies, for example, just like humans do. At the same time, animals are different. They have animal tribes with members in the physical world and the invisible world, deeply interwoven soul stories with their humans, and they don’t carry ancestral illnesses as humans do.

Shamanic healing for animals gives the humans a way to know what a pet feels and needs to bring an animal relief. Often this healing involves giving the human rich advice from the animal. Shamanic skills also give humans a way to attend compassionately and completely to the dying and death of a beloved pet. In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Shamanic Healing for Animals”, Pratt and Meeske explore the rich and extraordinary gifts that come to us from our animals and their shamanic healing.
