In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Shamanic Skills for the New World: Part 2”, Pratt continues her conversations with Smith, as they continue their discussion of the transformations we must engage in to become the New People who share the shamanic skills needed for us to create a more beautiful and sustainable New World.
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/
