"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

Appropriation and Deep Practice in Shamanism

Education, respect for all life, and awareness of both history and who writes it allows us to use cultural appropriation as a guide for what not to do that can take us directly into deeper practice. Cultural appropriation almost always involves members of the dominant culture taking from cultures of minority groups. This includes taking intellectual and spiritual property, traditional knowledge, cultural expressions, or artifacts and the unauthorized use of another culture’s dance, dress, music, language and symbols, stories, cuisine, traditional medicine, rituals, and ceremonies. This week host and shaman, Christina Pratt, explores appropriation in contemporary shamanism, why it is not only harmful, but often leads to shallow practice. When we forego our desire for shortcuts, need for insurance, and avoidance of discomfort are left with the steps humans have always needed to take to create authentic working relationships with their helping spirits.

Voices of the Sacred Feminine

Love Activism w/Tara Bianca

Tara Bianca combines two decades of research, teaching, speaking and private counseling to share her wisdom she calls Love Activism in her book, The Flower of Heaven. Tara will explain conscious friendship and why so many people experience so many challenges with family and friends. She'll define Love Activism and talk about "opening to the deeper mystery of you." We'll talk about opening to the Divine and how to overcome the most challenging aspects of our spiritual journey, including how a person can best open their heart to themselves. If you feel as if you've been struggling or suffering, Tara will help guide you out of that pattern. A great show for the start of the new year! Let's make 2020 better than 2019!
