“Occupy Love: Shamanism and Restorative Action” on Nov. 29 “Why Shamanism Now?” with Christina PrattPosted: November 29, 2011 3:30 pm
Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network (www.co-creatornetwork.com) on Tuesday, November 29, at 11 a.m. Pacific time/2 p.m. Eastern time, on her show “Why Shamanism Now?: A Practical Path Path to Authenticity,” shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt quotes spoken word poet Drew Dillinger who posted on OccupyLove.org on November 16: “How could we ask for anything less in the future?” Pratt expounds by asking: How do we—the big “We”—take the restorative actions needed to manifest a future that works for everyone?, and tells listeners: “Many of our shamanic ancestors knew an answer to this question. From the often quoted Great Binding Law of the Iroquois Confederacy that our decisions serve the next seven generations to the Quechua concept of ayni, which is reciprocity and gratitude co-mingled in mature love, our shamanic ancestors knew how to Occupy Love.”
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Occupy Love: Shamanism and Restorative Action”, Pratt explains that our shamanic ancestors created their entire social structure based on taking the actions necessary not only to thrive in their environments, but also to keep the flow of energy that animates all things moving, exchanging, and reciprocating. For many shamanic peoples, prior to contact with the religions and beliefs of the Western World, their lives were shaped by accepting a Law of Universal Responsibility which means that everyone engages in the interchange of mature love, knowledge, and right work. And that they do so in a way that willingly acknowledges the interconnection between humans, the natural world that sustains them, and the invisible world of spirit. According to Pratt, our ancestors learned to live in this way by asking their helping spirits how, so we are not looking back to see what to do, but to learn how to ask the questions of spirit that will guide us in taking the restorative actions needed to transform our world.
