    Visions and Illusions: Authenticity in Shamanism

    “Are your visions just illusions? Are your dreams really just fantasies? How do we know that our connection with spirit is authentic? Regardless of type of altered state, whether waking or dreaming, light or deep, induced by rhythm or sacred plants, ultimately it will have to be made intelligible through the mind. And the contemporary mind is filled to over-flowing with many things, mostly all entirely not shamanic. The contemporary, Western-trained mind is not prepared for authentic shamanic experience. Join host and shaman, Christina Pratt, as she explores what makes shamanism of any kind “authentic” and how we cultivate the connection with the invisible world necessary for the accurate interpretation of the information found there. Authenticity in shamanism is more than a set of skills with an academic pedigree or a bloodline or being one of the chosen messengers of Aya. Authenticity in shamanism requires sacrifice of self.

    Shamanic Activism: The Alchemy of Social Transformation

    “Our times call for the transformation of rallies, protests, and marches into massive, intentional sacred healing rituals, in which we ally ourselves with all humans, the compassionate spirits, the ancestors, and the spirit of the earth and stars.” This is the vision of our guest, Lenore Norrgard, shamanic healer and social alchemist. Lenore will discuss her journey from revolutionary social activist to profound social healer. She joins host, Christina Pratt, to share her experiences leading social healing rituals from the White House to inner north Portland. Lenore explains that, “Through ritual we remember our oneness with all things, even our opponents, and find our way past oppositional stances to a place where we create collective healing for all and profound social change.”

    Shaman as Activist: Part 2

    Shamanic practitioners could direct our current wave of energy for change into actual manifest changes in our everyday lives, if they would work together. To do so shamanic practitioners would have to use their specific skillset in ways that are more creative, collective, and honest about the underlying causes of the challenges and opportunities in our time. Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, continues to explore the shaman as activist, a conversation begun with Kelley Harrell and Evelyn Rysdyk over the past weeks. As contemporary practitioners it is our role and our responsibility to take action to manifest needed changes for the good of all living things. And we must begin to do this now, in new and more courageous ways.

    Shaman as Activist With Evelyn Rysdyk

    Literally millions of women around the world of all ages, with children, men and other loved ones, marched peacefully for an awe inspiring, record breaking, historic show of force, love, and dignity on Sunday, January 22 to cry out for change. How could we direct this wave of energy for change into actual manifest changes in our every day lives? In ancient times we would go the shaman, and through her, we would ask the spirits how. Join us this week as contemporary shamanic practitioners and teachers, Evelyn Rysdyk and Christina Pratt explore the fact that shamans have always been activists and shamanic work is the work of transformation. As contemporary practitioners it is our role and our responsibility to take action to manifest needed changes for the good of all living things. How do we do that now?

    Are We Changing the Spirit World? With Kelley Harrell

    The fixed and constant idea of the invisible world ordered in upper, middle, and lower worlds is a fundamental assumption of neoshamanism. However, if the relationship between humans and helping spirits is truly a working relationship, then it is possible that humans are changing the spirits even as the spirits are help us to change ourselves? Join us this week and contemporary shamanic practitioners and teachers, Kelley Harrell and Christina Pratt explore the signs that humans are changing the dynamics of not only the physical world, but also the invisible world of energy and spirit. Are there spirit world parallels between our affects on the physical world, climate change and polluting our elemental resources, and the spirit world? And most importantly, if there are, what shall we do about it?

    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.

    The Fundamentals of Shamanic Practice

    The shaman’s working relationship with spirit defines the practice or the healing as “shamanic”. It is the basic working relationship of shamanism and it is built on four even more fundamental relationships. The first fundamental is your relationship with the invisible world as a whole. The second is your relationship with ordinary reality and how you understand your place in the world around you. The third fundamental is your relationship with your personal energy in larger energetic reality around you. And finally your shamanic practice is guided by your relationship with your humanity and the quality of the choices that shape your path to your destiny. Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, explores how you cultivate health, well-being and efficacy in your practice and the fundamentals that are absolutely essential if you feel you are called to take that next step from shamanic practice into shamanic healing.
