On the next episode of "Why Shamanism Now?

Portland, OR, February 23, 2015 --( Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, February 24, 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 “Healing into death” sounds reasonable until the terminal diagnosis has been handed to someone we love, especially when that someone is young with a whole life head of them. Nonetheless, the ethics around shamanic healing force us to look at the bigger picture of a human life, particularly the parts we don’t want to see: the fact that we are not in control, that we really don’t know what’s going on in another person’s life, and the possibility that what the person really needs is that which we are least prepared to give.

In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Ethics in Shamanic Practice: Hard Choices”, Pratt explores the common hard choices we face when we endeavor to practice the powerful art of shamanic healing with integrity and impeccability when we are desperate and afraid.

Christina Pratt is a contemporary shaman specializing in mending the soul and transforming the parts of life that feel impossible.
