“What Is Soul Theft?” on July 8 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 explains the concept of soul theft, distinguishing it from soul loss, and how we can recover from it.

Portland, OR, July 08, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, July 8, 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 soul loss can occur quite naturally through sudden fright or situations where one fears they will die. Soul theft is an unnatural cause of soul loss in which one person is responsible for stealing a fragment of another’s soul. Soul theft leaves a person fragmented, as with all soul loss, and often listless and fatigued, losing appetite and strength, feeling restless and inadequate, depressed and helpless, or withdrawn and without motivation. According to Pratt, soul theft is not something of the past in the days of sorcery and superstition. “Today we experience intentional soul theft by skilled individuals or serial criminals as in the past,” explains Pratt, “and unintentional soul theft, by people desperately struggling with their own soul loss, like parents, teachers, healers, and young lovers.”

In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “What Is Soul Loss?” Pratt explores the true nature of soul theft, and how to repair it, protect yourself from it, and make sure you aren’t doing it yourself.
