The Shaman’s Heart

The shaman’s heart is an awakened heart.  The path the shaman walks to free the heart offers a metaphor for each of us to find the courage to heal our broken heartedness and step into spiritual adulthood.  “Contemporary life can break your heart on any day,” explains shaman and host, Christina Pratt. “And from that wreckage most of us learn to stand in our own way, habitually, practically, and fearfully rationalizing why we remain disengage from our heart and the hearts of others.” What the shaman knows is that while the broken heart is real, the story that we wrap around it is not.  If we have the courage to unwrap the story and feel again, we return to reality.  In reality the heart contains its own medicine to heal.  Where the heart has been emptied by grief and loss, it can be freed to fill its great depths again.  Where the heart has closed in fear and protection it can be opened by the wisdom of what truly matters.  Where the heart is weak with the struggles of life it can find power in honoring the essence of life.  Join us this week as we explore how to engage the medicine of the heart to heal and allow the energies of the heart to flow with passion in our lives.
