"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

Messy Initiation and Transformation Confusion

One of the great challenges and ongoing questions in contemporary shamanic practice is "what is initiation?" or more accurately "am I initiated?" It is messy because hundreds of years of colonization and genocide across our globe have deeply damaged, if not destroyed, traditional shamanic cultures. The current dominant religions and governments have changed how traditional practices work and don't work. Join host and shaman, Christina Pratt, as she explores the fact that the invisible world could care less about religions, governments, and broken traditions. It just keeps reaching into the pool of humanity, grabbing us by the scruff of our soul, and trying to initiate the shamans needed in this time. This week we explore listener questions about initiation. First and foremost, initiation is not a specific ritual, it's not time spent, it's not the fact that you paid for it; it is a function. If that function does not occur, initiation hasn't happened.
