on Tuesday, November 6, at 11 a.m. Pacific time/2 p.m. Eastern time, on her show "Why Shamanism Now?: A Practical Path to Authenticity,”
shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt talks about how traditional cultures have systems or cosmologies that explain the universe. These shamanic cosmologies explain for the people where the world came from, what we are, how we got here, and most importantly, why we are here. These cultures also sanction divination systems or tools that the people use within these cosmologies to interpret their dreams, journeys, and visions.
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Interpreting Your Symbolic Language: Part 2”, Pratt continues the conversation from her “Mastering the Art of the Shamanic Journey” series. This week she explores how one’s symbolic language came into being and why it continues to transform with you; why we must deepen and stop limiting ourselves and stop limiting our interpretation of our symbolic language. Pratt explains why a consistent and effective clearing practice is essential if one are to accurately interpret the messages from one’s guides and create the life we have come here to live for ourselves and for the next seven generations.Christina Pratt
