"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Tom Cowan: Conflux of Power
Tom Cowan joins host, Christina Pratt, to explore the art of "standing in the conflux of power." This traditional role of the shaman involved moving between forces, holding dynamic tensions, and finding balance in opposition. Tom joins us to explore how shamans practice this art today-or need to-when working in contemporary waking states of chaos like in war and large scale disasters, whether natural or man-made. Tom will share the timeless value in remembering ancient wisdom and embracing sovereignty as we seek to be wise and effective in the face of life's challenges. Tom is a much loved teacher, an internationally respected author of many books, lecturer, and a founding board member of the SSP. He joins us for the next show in the Society of Shamanic Practitioners sponsored interview series where we explore how contemporary shamans are meeting the challenge of their world where the relations of things-the living and the dead, the humans and nature, and Western Way and the spirit world-are profoundly out of balance. It is the ancient role of the shaman in all cultures to tend the balance of things. How are these shaman meeting this extraordinary need today?
This week's guest:
Tom Cowan is a deeply loved teacher and an internationally respected, author, lecturer, and tour leader. As a shamanic practitioner Tom specializes in Celtic visionary and healing techniques, while core shamanism continues to be Tom's primary spiritual practice. In his teachings Tom combines traditional European spirit lore with universal core shamanism to create spiritual practices that can heal and enrich one's own life and the lives of others. He is the author of many books, in particular one of the best books written on shamanism as a daily practice, Shamanism as a Spiritual Practice for Daily Life.
Tom's lifelong interest in mystical traditions led him to develop excellent tours to Ireland or Scotland to practice shamanism at sacred sites and work with the spirits of the land. Tom is also a minister in the Circle of the Sacred Earth, a church of animism dedicated to shamanic principles and practices. Today he lives in New York's Hudson River Valley where he offers training workshops, spiritual retreats, and healing sessions for groups and individuals.

Awakenings with Michele Meiche
ANCIENT SACRED - Paolo D'Oro
Paolo D’Oro, founder and creator of Ancient Bling & What is your Sound?, joins Michele Meiche today on Awakenings for a discussion on the emerging consciousness and healing. Paolo D'Oro shares his light as a psychic, shaman, and designer and creator of sacred art and sacred jewelry. Paolo has been a psychic since his first breath and he has collected visions throughout his childhood sharing them from Europe to India, where he has had the opportunity to study many rites and attend many rituals, from Yoruba in Africa, to the Candoble in Brazil. He believes that is it time to meld all cultures and join in the dance of life, and as Ama states, “We’re all in service.” www.whatisyoursound.com
