"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

Transforming Communal Shadows, Part Two

If we are to write a truly new story for the people in the new world we must transform the communal shadow behaviors that shaped so much of the old world. In the old world story much of the authentic impulse to create change was lost in fruitless rebellion, following gurus, and playing the victim the old world stories require. "To remember the true power of right action," explains host and shaman, Christina Pratt, "we must bring our own inner warrior out of the shadow and cultivate discernment. Only then will we be able to see through our cultural delusions, lies, and denial and rescue our truly enduring visionary energy from the false prophets of the old world stories." Join us this week as we explore the use of shamanic skills to transform communal shadow energies into the allies we need to both see a new world and to create it.

  1. Happy Beltane!

    Almost could smell those flowers above.

  2. May-Day


    For thou, O Spring! canst renovate
    All that high God did first create.
    Be still his arm and architect,
    Rebuild the ruin, mend defect;
    Chemist to vamp old worlds with new,
    Coat sea and sky with heavenlier blue,
    New-tint the plumage of the birds,
    And slough decay from grazing herds,
    Sweep ruins from the scarped mountain,
    Cleanse the torrent at the fountain,
    Purge alpine air by towns defiled,
    Bring to fair mother fairer child,
    Not less renew the heart and brain,
    Scatter the sloth, wash out the stain,
    Make the aged eye sun-clear,
    To parting soul bring grandeur near.
    Under gentle types, my Spring
    Masks the might of Nature's king,
    An energy that searches thorough
    From Chaos to the dawning morrow;
    Into all our human plight,
    The soul's pilgrimage and flight;
    In city or in solitude,
    Step by step, lifts bad to good,
    Without halting, without rest,
    Lifting Better up to Best;
    Planting seeds of knowledge pure,
    Through earth to ripen, through heaven endure.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    1. Awwww... Blessed Beltane to you, too darlin.' Love me some Emerson.
