- (1888PressRelease) February 03, 2012 - Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, February 7, 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 notes that 2012 is here and asks: what do we need to focus on? Pratt's guest, Sandra Ingerman, tells listeners, "Many of us have been moving forward to wake up, but we are still in a collective trance. The earth is evolving and we are evolving. There are and will continue to be earth changes we need to surrender to… We need to learn how to acknowledge grief and experience it. And at the same time we must allow our spirit to create change that takes us into a more meaningful life." Pratt and Ingerman -- author, therapist, and internationally recognized teacher -- discuss the places people and practitioners must deepen their work if we are going to be able to hold the space of universal love and detachment from outcome in these challenging times head. According to Pratt and Ingerman, if we are to become tools for the Divine and true agents of change, it is essential that we become fully conscious of our thought forms, learn that what we give energy to we give life to, and surrender our ego-driven plan so that we are able to see the bigger picture with the eyes of spirit.
In this episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" titled "Sandra Ingerman and Awakening Now", Ingerman shares with listeners the aspects of human development she feels are most essential in this auspicious time that we all share.
