Ancestral Healing Triage: Where to Begin Without Traditions-Part Two

Where do we begin to heal our ancestral lines? What is the first step when we do not have traditions that guide us? How do we address the interface between empty-feeling old ways and a very real need to change the family's status quo? "First we cultivate a healthy working relationship with our ancestors to create good, true, and beautiful helping spirits," says host and shaman, Christina Pratt, "only then will we be able to stop giving new life to the old answers of our unresolved relations. Then together, we can take the next steps." Join us this week to explore why we must deal skillfully with the past to create truly different answers for healthcare, war, economics, our relationship with our environment, education, homelessness, joblessness, child poverty, and other painful issues of today.

"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

Ancestral Healing Triage: Where to Begin Without Traditions-Part One

We all have ancestors. They are with us in our blood. We do not all have traditions that guide us in dealing with our ancestors. Some ancestors are true helping spirits. These ancestors bring us medicine, protection and belonging if we know how to let them. Some ancestors are deeply unwell, carrying the open wounds, personal and cultural, of history unreconciled. Nonetheless, they are both moving in our lives and, depending on how we choose to relate to them, they either bring us harm or bring us blessings. Join host and shaman, Christina Pratt, this week as we explore where to begin with your ancestors, why to begin, and most importantly how to cultivate right relationship with your ancestors to create good, true, and beautiful helping spirits.

Curanderismo in Contemporary Times with Erika Buenaflor

Modern curanderismo has roots in indigenous Mesoamerican shamans and curanderos, specifically the ancient Yukatek Maya and Mexica (Aztec). This week author and practitioner, Erika Buenaflor, M.A., J.D., shares her work and research into this rich healing history and practice. Buenaflor shares the cores of these practices, explaining that they are "practical and incredibly effective shamanic cleanses to heal, purify, and revitalize people and spaces with herbs, flowers, eggs, feathers, fire, and water." Join us as we explore modern curanderismo as a "powerful tool for self-empowerment, spiritual growth, soul retrieval, rebirth, and gracefully opening up pathways for new beginnings."

This week's guest:
Erika Buenaflor


Erika Buenaflor, M.A., J.D., has a master's degree in religious studies with a focus on Mesoamerican shamanism from the University of California at Riverside.
