Portland, OR, April 16, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, April 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 tells listeners that what we are taught about emotions in the “developed, Western world” will make the majority of us sick over time. This is the core teaching from a shamanic point of view. And perhaps more importantly, the second teaching says that emotional wellbeing is possible for everyone.
According to Pratt, it simply requires the discipline to break old patterns and the courage to risk trusting new ones. In other words, emotional wellbeing requires warriorship of the heart. It takes great courage to let go of the over-extended, empathetic coping mechanism of the child—after all, it saved your life. But the very same orientation in the world leads the adult into chronic poor health, coping addictions, and damaging relationships.
In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “How Do I Cultivate Emotional Wellbeing? – Part Two,” Pratt continues to explore why we are so confused about what emotional well-being is and how we can use shamanic skills to cultivate the emotional health and intelligence needed to live with authenticity and compassion.
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.
