"Authentic Shamanism" on March 17 Episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" Radio Show with Christina Pratt

On her radio show "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity", teacher, author, and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt explores authenticity and ethics in shamanism in light of the fact that thousands of people world-wide have been trained in basic shamanic practices.

Streaming live on the Voice America Network on Wednesday, March 1, at 2 p.m. Pacific time/5 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 what makes shamanism authentic? Is it tradition? Certification? Or is it direct access to Spirit?

In this episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" titled "Authentic Shamanism", Pratt explores authenticity and ethics in shamanism. Today literally thousands of people all over the world have learned to take a shamanic journey, and this is a good thing -- it is important that adults have spiritual input into their challenging daily decisions. But it begs the question, with all of these people journeying, what makes someone a shaman? According to Pratt, with people participating in monthly journeying circles, a type of "social shamanism" has emerged where people gather around this common interest, journey together, do a little ceremony, and share their experiences. However, while this is a valuable activity, Pratt feels that it barely taps the potential of authentic shamanism. Yet people see this as contemporary shamanism. Listeners will hear Pratt's answer to the question: Where do the ethics lie for teachers of shamanism in showing people the range from their personal journeys to shamanic healing to powerful community rituals and ceremonies guided by truly initiated shamans?

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.
