"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

How do We Heal? Shamanism & Disease

Shamans believe that soul loss or energy intrusions or both are at the root of all illness. This is only partially true. In the diagnostic trance state the shaman is actually looking for the weakness or imbalance that caused the soul loss or allowed the energy intrusion to happen. Join host and shaman, Christina Pratt, as she explores why we get sick and how we heal from a shamanic perspective. Like a plant, illness can only take root where there is fertile ground. Chronic disharmony, for example, when one forgets the feeling of belonging and connection and life loses meaning, and chronic fear, which results in the loss of love, joy, and trust without which the force of life itself seems to withdraw from the body, are fertile ground for illness. These areas of weakness in our wellbeing occur as a result of the bad habits accumulated by holding false attitudes about life and ones place in the Universe. Healing is the continual experience of re-establishing and maintaining balance in all the human systems and between them, both physical and energetic. Healing, then, is the process of restoring and maintaining balance in the body, mind, heart, and soul of the individual and with the community, environment, Ancestors, and the invisible world of Spirit.

"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

Mental Wellness in Pandemic Time

Mental wellness extends deep roots into solitude, silence, and a sense of self. In times of quarantine we are cut off from everyday patterns of distraction that allow us to avoid taking an honest look at the quality of our relationship with ourselves. As the weeks of shelter in place stretch on, mental wellness gives over into unwellness and mental illness is just around the corner. What if you could take a different path? Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, explores ways to cultivate the deep roots of mental wellness through the everyday things you still have access to.

"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

The Shortest Path-Crazy Logic

Shamanism offers us direct relationship with spirit and through that ongoing relationship guidance and direction. With the help of spirit, every individual can find his or her path of integrity and authenticity. But sometimes that straight and narrow path looks really long and time feels very short.

Have you ever just wanted a short cut? The Trickster found cross-culturally in shamanism brings us direct relationship with the "Crazy Logic" Teachers of our world: Death, The Unknown, Chaos, and Darkness. These characters always know the shortest path to where we need to go. Like any shortcut, it's filled with brambles, steep climbs, and leaps of faith; but it always gets us there. These teachers offer excellent guidance in dealing with addictions, chronic fears, frustration and exhaustion. Work with them always builds character, but it also cultivates the internal richness necessary to bring up our light and the courage to express that light with truth and humility in the world.

"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt

Crazy Logic and Shadow Transformation

Effective shadow transformation requires a specialist who knows the terrain of the darkest reaches of the human heart. This specialist must be more than human, fiercely loving all that is vast, ugly, and twisted within us while remaining a centered, curious, and creative guide. The Specialist is the archetype of Crazy Woman. She has inspired many wondrous and powerful destroyer goddesses in humanity's diverse religions. But like the Tao, the destroyer goddess who can be named is not the eternal Crazy Woman. Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, shares the essence of working effectively with Crazy Woman when our modern minds are stuffed full of Western bias, false beliefs about our own shadow, and fundamental misunderstanding of the human heart.
