"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

Ethics in Shamanic Practice: Hard Choices

"Healing into death" sounds reasonable until the terminal diagnosis has been handed to someone we love, especially when that someone is young with a whole life head of them. Nonetheless, the ethics around shamanic healing force us to look at the bigger picture of a human life, particularly the parts we don't want to see: the fact that we are not in control, that we really don't know what's going on in another person's life, and the possibility that what the person really needs is that which we are least prepared to give. Join host and shaman, Christina Pratt, this week as she explores the common hard choices we face when we endeavor to practice the powerful art of shamanic healing with integrity and impeccability when we are desperate and afraid.

The Elemental Heart

At the core of initiatory illness are the spirits who are looking for a pure heart. They can teach you all you need to know about shamanic practice and healing, but they can't purify your heart. Only you can do that. This week host and shaman, Christina Pratt, explores the elemental heart and how we can use our work with the four elements to purify our hearts. Matters of the heart never cease to confound and confuse us when we allow our mind to lead. But when we work with elemental energies to purify our heart, the simple and courageous leadership of the heart will emerge. And we must always remember that simple doesn't mean easy, the wisdom of the heart cannot be domesticated, and following a pure heart is not for sissies.

James Ray: Man on Fire – UPDATED

Crossposted from Reflections Journal.



The winner of the tin ear award has to go to Dr. Sharron Stroud who writes:

James Arthur Ray will be speaking for Innerfaith Spiritual Center Worldwide February 22nd. He has lifted himself Phoenix-Like from the Ashes of his former experience and is making a difference with what he has learned. Our Way of Life teaches the Power of Forgiveness and the Evolution of the Soul. The Path of each Being is filled with Spiritual Contracts and Karmic Experiences, the point being, what will we do with them?

What "hellacious hot" furnace did the old bird rise from, you ask? Why the one that consumed the lives of Kirby Brown, Liz Neuman, and James Shore, of course.

Stroud has stiff competition from Ray himself, though. Of all his new products, which does he choose to feature in the copy for this event? An ebook called Answers to Life's 11 Most Burning Questions. Natch! Reserve your ticket today, and you too can receive a free memento of the burning ring of fire that was that deadly sweat lodge.

Co-Creating With Your Shadow: Part Two

When we co-create our lives with Spirit and our Shadow together, we end up following the path of crazy logic. If you can use your shamanic skills to stay on that track-without panic and doubt-you will begin to unfold your inner self in ways you never expected or believed possible. With the help of your Shadow you begin to see what you have denied in yourself and with the help of spirit used skillfully, you can welcome that aspect of your true self home. Join host and shaman, Christina Pratt, for this final section in the Co-Creation Series where we explore how to use shamanic skills to co-create your life today so that you bring the needed medicine of your gifts to the world tomorrow.

Graham Hancock on Ancient Magicians

Crossposted from Reflections Journal.



The sequel to one of my favorite books of all time Fingerprints of the Gods appears to be on track for its publication later this year. As Hancock explains, this lecture is already a little out of date because his research is moving at a pace. It is, however, extremely compelling. The correlations between the ancient catastrophe myths and the archaeological evidence really coming into focus. I highly recommend laying aside some time to hear about these Magicians of the Gods.

Hancock also mentions a very strange Ayahuasca experience. I mentioned this in an earlier post but I hadn't realized that he'd collected all those Facebook posts and placed them here on his site.
