Portland, OR, January 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, January 14, 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 talks to writer, speaker, genre-defying social philosopher and countercultural intellectual Charles Eisenstein who explains, “The fundamental precept of the New Story is that we are inseparate from the universe, and our being partakes in the being of everyone and everything else.” According to Eisenstein, a growing number of very diverse people, especially those engaged in a shamanic life, find themselves in service to an emerging Story of the People that is defining the mythology of a New World. He calls this the Story of Interbeing.
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible,” Pratt and Eisenstein discuss the principles of Interbeing and the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible. They dive into “a deep wisdom we all innately know: until we get our selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted.”
Christina Pratt is a contemporary shaman specializing in mending the soul and transforming the parts of life that feel impossible.
