Shamanic Life with Kids on May 20 Why Shamanism Now? Radio Show with Shaman and Host Christina Pratt

On the next episode of "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity,” teacher, author and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt talks about children – how they’re already “there” shamanically, and how we can best support them rather passing along our fears.

Portland, OR, May 17, 2014 --( Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, May 20, 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 quotes author and shaman, S. Kelley Harrell, who has said, “Children arrive animists. They learn about life, themselves, and empathy by imagining the liveliness of everything they come into contact with.” According to Pratt, in your efforts to live a shamanic life with your kids you have to remember that they are already there. You are actually playing catch up… and you need to catch up so that you can stay out of the way and support the natural growth of their spiritual life.

In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Shamanic Life with Kids,” Pratt explores the damage we do to our children by passing on our fears, misunderstandings, and ignorance about what is going on in the energetic reality of the world around us. Luckily, says Pratt, there is great benefit in simply learning to journey to support our efforts to raise children who feel spiritually whole and energetically alive. With the challenges that face the next generations, what better gift could we give them than a strong and intimate working relationship with their own spirit help?
