-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, April 8, 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 explains to listeners that health, in shamanic terms, requires the interaction of body and spirit, mind, and emotion. There is no physical health in shamanism apart from the dynamic interaction of all four aspects of being a human. A shamanic diagnosis addresses these four aspects of the human simultaneously, while also looking back to past events that could be a cause of dysfunction now. The interaction of the four aspects of being human was understood to be so deeply essential for health that shamanic peoples built the maintenance of all four into the social fabric and ritual structure of their cultures. According to Pratt, nowhere is this more challenging for us to understand accurately than in the realm of our emotions.
In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “How Do I Cultivate Emotional Wellbeing”, Pratt explores our twin tendencies to either indulge or deny our emotions and how this distorts our understanding of what it means to be truly sensitive, empathic, or unconditionally accepting. She also shares teachings from the helping spirits for cultivating emotional wellbeing in support of bringing your gifts to the world.Christina Pratt
