"The Challenge of Love" on December 30 "Why Shamanism Now?" Radio Show with 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 the importance of self-love, without which we cannot bring our gifts fully into the world.

Portland, OR, December 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, December 30, 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 self-love is fundamental, but remains a Sisyphusian task for many. Pratt asks listeners in this episode titled “The Challenge of Love”: what would it take for you to respect, honor, and deeply value yourself? According to Pratt, this is the challenge of love. To meet it, we must choose to return to the Source, to reconnect with our purpose, and remember why we are here apart from our history and story. The challenge of love requires that we spend some time in actually loving actions to free the child from old wounds, to free the adult from the expectations of others, to individuate from parents, and to step out into the world as the someone that you love, understanding how this elusive challenge of love is and how the challenge of loving yourself evolves as you evolve in your own nature. This is a time of falling in love with why you are here, with the feeling of meaning and purpose that nourishes your heart and with the engaging mental challenge of bringing your gifts into the world.
