"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Shamanism and Life
What are the powerful and precise teachings about living life that we learn from the practice of shamanism? Our most popular guest, Martin Brennan, joins shaman and host, Christina Pratt, to share the universal and important life lessons he has learned from shamanism. Join us this week Martin's list of the five things necessary for a robust and rich life filled with laughter, good work, and good relationship. 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, use your life to transform you; that's what its there for. This week we continue the summer "blockbuster" series as we look into what shamanism has to teach us about the big issues-death, life, love and sex.
This week's guest:

Chat with Amy Bortner-Gialuco, Author, Channel, Healer, Founder of the Ascordia Center
I have studied and practiced in the field of philosophy, metaphysics, healing and spiritual development for over twenty five years. I was given a book to read, by a friend, that literally changed my life! The book was entitled "Seth Speaks". It had such a tremendous influence on me, that I temporarily dropped out of school to devote my time to reading the Seth material, to develop my psychic/spiritual abilities and to further pursue my metaphysical education. My spiritual path led me to meet a local channeler, who had also read the Seth books, and was holding classes. I decided to study with her and attend her spiritual awareness and psychic development classes in 1978. "Daniel" began to work with me in 1979. Since that time, I have given hundreds of public and private channeling sessions with "Daniel" on a variety of topics that are very important and appropriate to these changing times. My abilities as a trance channeler greatly expanded and I began to channel a wide variety of spiritual guides. I have worked predominantly with spirit guides from the upper astral planes, extra terrestrials from the local star systems, ascended masters and Angelic beings. I studied many different healing techniques after I started to channel "Daniel". I began my bodywork practice in 1982. I incorporated these in my healing practice. Ascordia is a Seraphic Angel who was assigned to work with the Earth plane at this time to help the transition of the planet. Apparently, I was to be her student for I have been channeling Ascordia's energy and information since 1987. She indicated to me that I would start a healing and educational center emphasizing the angelic perspective. Consequently, I put a sign up on my apartment office door in 1987 that simply said "Ascordia Center" and I have continued the Ascordia Center ever since!
