Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, February 25, 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 asks the questions: Why are we afraid to feel? Why do we fear the emotional intelligence of the heart? According to Pratt, the heart affects mental clarity, creativity, emotional balance, and personal effectiveness. It is no more a simple physical pump than it is simply the source of tepid pop songs and foolish dreams. The Chinese have known for centuries that the heart orchestrates the harmonious interaction of all of the body’s organs maintaining good health. Modern science has known since 1991 that the heart has a functional brain of elaborate circuitry that enables it to learn, remember, feel and sense independently of the cranial brain. And shamans who work in intimate relationship with the invisible world have always known that all true power is mediated through the heart.
In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Awakening the Courageous Heart: Part 2”, Pratt continues to explore the secret terrain of the heart and what is necessary for contemporary people—with our wounds of isolation, anxiety, alienation, and broken-heartedness—
to awaken our courageous hearts.Christina Pratt
