The Chemistry of Creativity with Kate Smith on 4/7 Why Shamanism Now with Christina Pratt
On the next "Why Shamanism Now?” radio show, Christina Pratt talks to Kate Smith, founder of Journeysmith, about the challenge of being called to a deeper creative purpose, challenging that which is familiar and comfortable in one’s life.
This week’s episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “The Chemistry of Creativity” is the fifth and last of a five-part series on creativity and ways to use your shamanic practice to access your innate creativity, connect with the rising energy of springtime, and manifest the life you dream of living.
Christina Pratt is a contemporary shaman specializing in mending the soul and transforming the parts of life that feel impossible. A teacher of exceptional clarity, humor, and inspiration, Pratt brings the power of shamanism into the practical grasp of anyone willing to take responsibility for improving the quality of their life. Her book An Encyclopedia of Shamanism clearly discusses the basic concepts of shamanism, methods, and traditions of over 50 different shamanic peoples. Pratt is the founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing, creator of the original Foundations of Shamanism and Shamanic Healing course at the University of Minnesota, and a frequent and honored speaker for the American Holistic Medical Association.
Kate Smith has a BA in Chemistry from Princeton University and a PhD in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University. For nearly two decades, she worked in academia and the pharmaceutical industry before becoming a 'smith' of shamanic power tools under the tutelage and inspiration of Susanne and Eric Humaidan. Smith has studied shamanism since 2006 with Alberto Villoldo, Christina Pratt and Malidoma Somé. In 2012, Smith started Journeysmith, a shamanic art studio devoted to creating finely crafted spiritual power tools - drums, rattles and other instruments that bridge ordinary and non-ordinary reality. Smith offers these tools as a way to help others stay true to themselves, re-discover their connection with the earth and align with all that is authentic in their life's journey. www.journeysmith.com, https://www.facebook.com/
