In this week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Creating Presence and Autonomy”, the first of her new series on Working with the Elements, Pratt explores how we can work with the earth element to cultivate the qualities of grounding, place, presence, and sovereignty. Pratt notes that in a world where isolation and loneliness fuel depression, there is big medicine to be found in the ability to work with the earth to create a sense of belonging, connection within, and interconnection with the larger reality.
Christina Pratt is a contemporary shaman specializing in mending the soul and transforming the parts of life that feel impossible.
