Taking Shamanism Out of the Box with Sandra Ingerman on December 17 "Why Shamanism Now?" Radio Show
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 to internationally acclaimed shaman Sandra Ingerman about using shamanism in non-typical ways to affect global healing.
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Taking Shamanism Out of the Box,” Pratt and Ingerman explore the need to take our shamanic practice out of the contemporary box we have put it in, keeping us from our full power and potential. Ingerman notes, “It is time for all us to stand up and do our spiritual work to shift our own consciousness and perception. It is time for us to stand up together as a global community so that we can create exponential change, which leads to healing for the earth and all of life.”
Ingerman talks to Pratt as part of a series of “Why Shamanism Now?” interviews sponsored by the Society of Shamanic Practitioners. Throughout this series, Pratt explores how contemporary shamans are meeting the challenge of their world where the relations of things—the living and the dead, the humans and nature, and the technological world and the spirit world—are profoundly out of balance. It is the ancient role of the shaman in all cultures to tend the balance of things, and the question is asked: how are these shamans meeting this extraordinary need today?
