"Spiritual Bypass and Shamanism" on January 21 "Why Shamanism Now?" Radio Show with Christina Pratt

On her next episode of "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity" titled "Spiritual Bypass and Shamanism," teacher, author and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt talks about how we have a tendency to jump into a spiritual practice prematurely in an effort to avoid the difficulties of life, and how this in and of itself should be avoided.

Portland, OR, January 20, 2014 --( Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, January 21, 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 any spiritual practice can be misused as a “spiritual bypass,” or the means by which one jumps to spirit prematurely in an effort to avoid the challenges of life in the body, painful emotions, unresolved events from the past, or our responsibility to do what is uniquely ours to do with this life. According to Pratt, the world needs our gifts. Our gifts require that we engage our whole life, with its messy emotions and past events that must be reconciled in a new way.

In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Spiritual Bypass and Shamanism”, Pratt explores what makes a spiritual practice practical and powerful. Pratt tells listeners that the fact that any spiritual practice, including shamanic practice, can be misused as a spiritual bypass is not a valid excuse to dismiss cultivating your spiritual practice. Without a real relationship with spirit, the mind will fail to innovate and make the intuitive leaps needed to find the gifts in the past, the practical steps in the present, and a vision to a possible future.

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.
