  • (1888PressRelease) June 25, 2011 - Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, June 28, 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 shamanism offers several tiers for engagement for anyone committed to the process of their own recovery. According to Pratt, shamanism is first the working relationship with spirit. At its root, shamanism offers the skills for one to create one's own relationship with one's helping spirits. This opens a world of healing opportunities, both individual and social, in ordinary and non-ordinary reality, that support the ebb and flow that is the nature of a recovery process.

    Shamanism is the shaman. Pratt explains that the shaman as healer offers both a way to get at the aspects of self that remain out of reach, and a way to clear and release invasive and provocative energies that often coalesce around the addict. Shamanism is also a way of living a spirit-engaged life. Pratt says that shamanism offers a way for the individual to repair his or her spiritual life on his or her own terms, based on personal experiences and practical teachings that have supported the cultivation of well-being for thousands of years.

    In this episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" titled "Shamanism and Recovery", Pratt explores the multiple levels a person in recovery can access through shamanism to restore their relationship with everyday spirit help, mend their battered and abandoned relationship with their soul, and engage in a dynamic, ever-growing relationship with life and the courage to live it with an open heart.

    Christina Pratt is an authentic, non-traditional contemporary shaman. In practice since 1990, she specializes 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 well-received book, An Encyclopedia of Shamanism (Rosen), is an 800-page, two-volume set with over 750 in-depth entries that clearly discuss 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 in Portland, OR, and New York, NY, 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.
