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 talks about shamanic healing in the 21st century – the options that are now available and the type of healing that comes about from engaging in a shamanic perspective.

Portland, OR, February 28, 2011 --( Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network ( on Tuesday, March 8, 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 talks about shamanic healing in the 21st century in three parts. First, Pratt explores the healing that comes from work with a shaman and how that integrates into all the other healing options available to you in the 21st century. Pratt notes that being a contemporary consumer of health care in the USA is a challenge. In many ways, working with a shaman can help you to orchestrate the rest of the options from the clarity and personal truth of your own core needs. Next, Pratt explores the healing that comes from developing our own relationships with helping spirits, and how learning the basic shamanic skill set helps us to heal ourselves and our lives, which then reenergizes our overall wellbeing. Finally Pratt explores the healing that comes from engaging in life from a shamanic perspective and the transformations that might get us to that place. Much of what ails us culturally can be healed by rediscovering our core values and deep loves, finding others who share them, and recommitting our lives to living from what has heart and meaning.

In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “What Is Shamanic Healing,” Pratt helps listeners understand what shamanic healing could it be for them, and how to weave it into our very contemporary lives.
