Portland, OR, January 05, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, January 6, 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 each of us has the ability to manifest a life that is more joyful for us and transformative for the world. Pratt tells listeners that humans are manifesting all the time, usually utterly unconscious that they are the driving force that is manifesting the very things that they don’t like in their lives or their world. Co-creation is an art that must be practiced consciously. And that art can be learned, according to Pratt’s guest, Alida Birch, and her new book, "The Co-Creation Handbook" and downloadable companion audio program. Birch has helped thousands of people through her healing work, apprenticeship programs, and now through her writing.
In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “The Co-Creation Handbook,” Birch and Pratt discuss the principles needed to get started, how to orient your energy and your vision, and how to use shamanic skills to make it all real in the world.
