"How to Begin Shamanic Journeying" on September 3 "Why Shamanism Now?" with Host Christina Pratt

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 explains what shamanic journeying is and addresses misconceptions about it.

Portland, OR, September 02, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, August 13, 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 shamanic journeying is not an “out of body experience.” According to Pratt, when this particular alternate state is achieved, the journeyer has “a foot in both worlds.” The senses in the physical body and the dreaming body are fully engaged and drawing in the multi-dimensional communication from the invisible world.

In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “How to Begin Shamanic Journeying,” Pratt explores this common misunderstanding along with other misconceptions and expectations that inhibit beginning journeyers. Pratt tells listeners that shamanic journeying is not a mental construct to be understood by the rational mind. Journeying is an embodied practice that requires surrender to the basic discipline. The discipline then frees the mind from ordinary thought allowing the senses, ordinary and extraordinary, to engage with the formless powers and heartfelt meaning of the invisible world. Pratt explains that the world of the shamanic journey is not here on the surface with the safe and familiar, but requires diving deeper into the realms of dreams, hearts, and the Unknown.

Christina Pratt is a contemporary shaman specializing in mending the soul and transforming the parts of life that feel impossible. A teacher of exceptional clarity, humor, and inspiration, Pratt brings the power of shamanism into the practical grasp of anyone willing to take responsibility for improving the quality of their life. Her book An Encyclopedia of Shamanism clearly discusses the basic concepts of shamanism, methods, and traditions of over 50 different shamanic peoples. Pratt is the founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing, creator of the original Foundations of Shamanism and Shamanic Healing course at the University of Minnesota, and a frequent and honored speaker for the American Holistic Medical Association.
