  • (1888PressRelease) August 10, 2010 - Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network on Tuesday, August 17, 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 asks the question: What are the powerful and precise teachings about living life that we learn from the practice of shamanism? The show's most popular guest, shamanic practitioner Martin Brennan, joins Pratt to share the universal and important life lessons he has learned from shamanism.

    In this episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" titled "Shamanism and Life", Martin reviews the five things that are necessary for a robust and rich life filled with laughter, good work, and good relationship. These are: 1) The balance of focus and surrender, humility and empowerment, needed for successful shamanic journeying is precisely the stance needed to enter in to right relationship with others and ultimately the self. 2) Sacrifice is essential to engage spirit in the discovery of your true calling. 3) If it's worth doing, it's worth doing in ritual, which allows depth in transformation and expression. 4) There is incredible power in the spirit world to help you, but you must ask. And finally, 5) use your life to transform you; that's what it's there for. This week's show continues a summer "blockbuster" series in which Pratt and occasional guests look at what shamanism has to teach us about life's biggest issues.
