Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, April 29, 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 tells listeners that he true nature of our emotions can surprise us when they are explored through shamanic skills. According to Pratt, they rarely come from where we think they do, nor are they composed of what they appear to be. One of the richest explorations we can engage in with our helping spirits through journeying is the true nature of our emotional life. “The adult emotional body can be cultivated with the help of spirit,” explains Pratt, “but not by spirit for you.” Cultivation is most often avoided where strong, painful, or socially unacceptable emotions are concerned, yet our helping spirits can show us how these emotions arise in relation to path of knowing our true purpose.
