Submitted by: Renaissance Resources
(OPENPRESS) August 6, 2012 -- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network (www.co-creatornetwork.com) on Tuesday, August 7, at 11 a.m. Pacific time/2 p.m. Eastern time, on her show "Why Shamanism Now?: A Practical Path to Authenticity," shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt addresses listeners who feel they have gathered the love of their path (Healer) and the wisdom to guide them along it (Warrior), and answers the question: where is the power to make it real? According to Pratt, the power comes from the Teacher's ability to see through his/her own stories to the deeper truth to the soul and its longing. The shamanic skills of the Strong Heart are used to transform all aspects of self that have become righteous, positional, judgmental or controlling.
In this episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" titled "The Heart of the Teacher", Pratt explains that walking the path of one's soul's purpose demands passionate commitment to the process without attachment to the outcome. Teacher cultivates a robust relationship with the Unknown and the fundamental truth that All is One, and there is no separation. Having exposed the lie of separation, the Teacher brings Balance, Wholeness, and Trust to the life expression of the Authentic Self. Pratt tells listeners that the strong heart of the Teacher gives us access to our power to step into our own self-mastery and sovereignty.
