Portland, OR, February 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network (www.co-creatornetwork.com) on Tuesday, February 14, 2012, 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 asks the question: What does it take to live a legendary life? According to Pratt, a human is born to live a legendary life because we are all born of the Big Dream. In the creation stories of shamanic peoples, the Great Timeless Spaceless Mystery Void dreamt, for reasons no one knows or understands. But from that Big Dream came fire and ice, yin and yang. As they continued to dream, the world as we know it was manifest and those legendary dreamers took the form of Earth and Sky. Pratt tells listeners that when we are able to release our parents and the small story of our personal childhood with all of its beauty and suffering, we can then take the Earth as our True Mother and the Sky as our True Father. In that initiatory act of surrender and release, we step into our true family and we orient ourselves for a legendary life. “We are born into this world with a blueprint for a legendary life,” explains Pratt. “But that doesn’t mean living it will be automatic. To engage the blueprint for your legendary life, you must consort with beings of legend, sacrifice your mediocre expectations of safe comfort, and reach within for the passion that lights up the heart memory of why you are here.”
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “How to Live a Legendary Life,” Pratt explores the acts and attitude necessary to live a life of legend.
