-- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, June 17, 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 the Human Potential Movement arose out of the fertile soil of political unrest and a deep desire for meaning and truth in life...and the vague but growing understanding that our more ancient shamanic ancestors lived a way of life in which using their human potential was considered “normal” and expected of adults. According to Pratt, the movement inspired good work rooted in the belief that humans have within them the potential to make new choices, learn new skills, and to manifest an exceptional quality of life. And there was a fork in the road of the Human Potential Movement that became what we now call the New Age Movement.
In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “The New Age and Spiritual Integrity in the New World”, Pratt explores the ways in which shamanic life is distinctly not new age, how the new age is rooted firmly in the Old World, and why the path of the New Age Movement is not the path to that exceptional future in the New World we live in today.Christina Pratt
