"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
What is a Shaman?
What is a shaman? Host and shaman, Christina Pratt, freshly inspired by the diversity and community synergy of the UK Shamanic Conference, will explore this most interesting question. It is not true that every energy practitioner today is a shaman because not every altered state is a shamanic altered state. And something isn't shamanic just because you don't understand it or have a name for it. In this time when anyone can call themselves a shaman, what is a shaman? A shaman is a particular type of practitioner who works in an induced shamanic trance state with invisible and reliable energy beings. With the assistance of these invisible beings the shaman makes changes in the invisible world that create the desired changes here in the physical world. And the shaman does this work in response to the need to set things; people, communities, earth energies, what have you, into right relationship with the Greater Flow of life force energy. Shamans are called by Spirit and initiated through that relationship. And, traditionally shamans have worked with other types of healers in their communities. This week we will explore what this definition actually means in the past and the present, how you might select a shaman, and why even shamans argue about who is a shaman.

Second Hours Guest
The story of Gregory Sams is the remarkable story of the British counter-culture since the 1960's. In 1982, he launched the first VegeBurger and was soon selling over 250,000 burgers each week. In the mid-1980's Gregory dedicated his life to the new scientific ideas of ‘chaos theory' and founded Strange Attractions, the world's first ever shop dedicated to chaos theory from which he created and sold computer fractal designs for everything from posters to t-shirts to jugsaw puzzles. His interest in chaos theory led to an interest in consciousness that led to writing this book.
