"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
What Weather Teaches with Nan Moss and David Corbin
"We are passionate about using shamanic skills and practices to become fully human, about approaching and manifesting those potentials that human beings represent," say Nan Moss and David Corbin of The Shaman's Circle. "We are interested in using our knowledge, our minds, our emotions, and our bodies, to help support the well-being and evolution of this world and all its residents." Join Nan, David, and host Christina Pratt as we explore Weather Dancing, Cloud Dancing, and the intimate relationship between our inner states, the weather, and our ability to transform the damage humans are doing to the environment. Nan and David share the belief that through their shamanic practice, weather teachings, and through circles of Weather Dancers formed from their Weather programs, change can happen, wounds can heal, and nature and humans can work together towards an alive and vital future. Nan and David are our next guests for the Society of Shamanic Practitioners sponsored interview series. In this series we explore how contemporary shamans are meeting the challenge of their world where the relations of things 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 shamans meeting this extraordinary need today?

Awake: Now What?
Meet Linda Backman, Author, Counsellor, Regression Therapist
Dr. Linda Backman, licensed psychologist and regression therapist, has been in private practice for more than 30 years. Since 1993, Dr. Backman has guided innumerable individuals in regression hypnotherapy to access their past and between lives. In this way, she assists people to more fully recognize who they are as a soul throughout repetitive lifetimes, and during the time we are not incarnate. Regression hypnotherapy allows the client to understand their soul mission, soul progress, soul relationships, and much more. Dr. Backman holds a profound commitment to deepening and heightening our awareness as an individual incarnate soul. From a broader perspective, Linda is deeply focused on a more universal understanding and awareness of the path of soul development that leads to the acceptance of Oneness and Unity of all people and cultures of the world. In 1997, Dr. Backman and her husband, Dr. Earl Backman, established The Ravenheart Center (www.RavenHeartCenter.com ), a Mystery School in Boulder, Colorado, dedicated to guiding individuals to discover their soul path. In addition, Linda co-founded The International Between Lives Regression Network (www.iblrn.org) in 2005, a network for regression therapists and for the promotion of awareness among the general public, in the US and abroad, of the benefits and purpose of Regression Hypnotherapy. Dr. Backman is the author of Bringing Your Soul to Light: Healing Through Past Lives and the Time Between (www.BringingYourSoultoLight.com), published by Llewellyn Worldwide (2009); and a frequent guest on radio shows (including Coast to Coast AM w/George Noory). Linda is currently writing her second book which will deepen the reader’s understanding of our soul progression from lifetime to lifetime. Linda has earned academic degrees from the University of Oregon, University of North Carolina, and Northern Arizona University (doctorate awarded in 1987).
