In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible”, Pratt and Eisenstein discuss the principles of Interbeing and the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible. They dive into “a deep wisdom we all innately know: until we get our selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted.
