Children and Shamanism: Infants

Sacred space is created for ritual and ceremony, but rarely for conception. For a human there are few actions as sacred as the creation of another human being, yet we rarely consider the creation of sacred space for the miracle of conception. This week host and shaman, Christina Pratt, begins our series on Children and Shamanism at the beginning, exploring the application of shamanic skills during pregnancy and infancy. The principles of shamanism offer countless ways to engage the spirit, power, and being of your child. Shamanic healing can also help you to heal in ways that allow you to stop patterns of abuse handed down to you, freeing you to create a new way of being present, engage, and responsive with your children. There is no better reason than children to sort the unresolved issues out in your ancestral line, open up to singing power songs, and learn to journey yourself.
