on Tuesday, December 4, 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 tells listeners that the Warrior calls us out to do what must be done for what we love in the world, and asks the questions: What would you do today if you knew you would die tomorrow? What would you give the rest of your life for to be sure it was here for our descendants in the New World? Pratt explains that in this time of ending and new beginnings, you must be able to discern what you want to bring into the New World and what you must do to make that happen. According to Pratt, the Warrior is not so much about battle in the world, but about the battle for authenticity with the False Self. Warriorship is about facing your fears in a way that allows you to see them for what they are: expectations from the past that you project and attachments to a future you imagine. Warriorship is stepping into our personal practice daily and clearing the energies we hold that keep us out of the moment. Warriorship is risking what is safe and known for what could be and needs to be. Warriorship is the countless moments of discernment through which you decide that this actions is worthy of your resources because it has purpose and meaning in your heart and this one is not.
