)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, April 23, at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern, on "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity,” shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt notes that witches, vampires, werewolves, and the living dead appear in our dreams, nightmares, and fairy tales. They also appear in our journeys and as manifestations of illness in shamanic healing. Are they real or are they our imagination?
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Good Witch, Bad Witch?,” Pratt explores humanity’s timeless bad guys and the slippery terrain of those things that are not physically manifest, yet are present and profoundly affect our physical well-being when come into our world. According to Pratt, it is important that we understand why and how these characters exist in the first place, what calls them to us, and how do we protect ourselves. As with all encounters with shadowy figures, whether in our dreams or journeys, Pratt says that we must have the courage to look within. When we find that figure within ourselves, we must also have the heart to engage it. For in that ancient bad guy is the medicine for our own healing and the revelation of our True Self.
