"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Shamanic Practioniers Conference in the UK
This week we take a break from our Initiation Series to support our friends and shamanic colleagues in the UK.. Howard and Elsa Malpas of Warrior in the Heart in London are presenting the 4th UK Residential the Society of Shamanic Practitioners Conference with the help of Nick Breeze Wood of Sacred Hoop Magazine. The conference runs September 9-12th at Gaunts House in Dorset, England. Elsa, Howard and Nick all join us this week to talk about the conference, the beauty of Gaunts House's 2000 acres, and the rich and diverse group of teachers and healers who will be presenting that this year's conference. "The conference is a gathering for those honouring the shamanic way. It is an opportunity to share sacred space with people who are dedicated to teaching and practicing the ways of the shaman and bringing that ancient spirituality into the present and future." The theme this year is Dancing with the Cycles of Life and Jonathan Horwitz, a true elder in contemporary shamanism in Europe, will weave the days together with "The Shaman's Thread: The Unseen Rhythms of Life." The days begin with meditations and end in community ritual or ceremony. Your host, Christina Pratt, will be presenting Awakening the Courageous Heart on the 11th. You can find out everything you need to know about the conference at www.shamanconference.co.uk
This week's guest:
Howard & Elsa Malpas
Nick Wood Breeze
Howard and Elsa have been studying and practicing Shamanism since 1983 and during that time have realized that it is more a remembering, an ancient knowing, rather than a learning. Howard and Elsa have been facilitating residential and non-residential Warrior in the Heart courses since 1994 and regard seeing the beautiful journey people are taking into themselves as a gift. Having discovered a passion for living through Shamanism, they simply want to share what they know, and help others to empower themselves.
Howard & Elsa are both UK Directors of the Society for Shamanic Practitioners. www.shamansociety.org. Elsa is a Director of The Isle of Avalon Foundation, Glastonbury an Educational Not for Profit Company dedicated to promoting Spiritual growth. www.isleofavalonfoundation.comYou can reach Howard and Elsa at www.shamanicwarrior.com
