We need initiation into adulthood desperately, as individuals and as a culture. At this time the lack of initiation is at the root of much of what ails people on this planet, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Initiation is a bit of a mystery for children raised on tales of knights who slay the Dragon and are given the princess as a prize, a tale that further perpetuates the patterns of abuse of power in the Old Story that so deeply characterize any male-dominated, mentally-fixated culture. Yet, shamanic cultures, still alive today, share a different story of our path to power that is deeply rooted in the initiatory process. Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, explores a deeper understanding of the function of initiation into adulthood and how returning to this practice creates a new foundation for the health and well-being of the young, the old and the elders.
