Shadow Transformation Protocol with Christina Pratt
The fundamental assumption about shadow work that blinds us to its true nature is the idea that shadow work is a psychological or spiritual issue. It is neither; it is an issue of the heart. Once we understand that, contemporary assumptions unravel for anyone, and the transformational fun begins. Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, shared the commons beliefs that actually lead us away from the real work we can do. She explores what we can do when we have the right tool for the job and a specialist to guide us. There is an art to engaging in transformation that flies under the radar of the mind and is deeply rooted in changing your real life choices. Mastering that art is the secret to renewing your heart’s sacred contract with your soul.
Crazy Logic and Shadow Transformation
Effective shadow transformation requires a specialist who knows the terrain of the darkest reaches of the human heart. This specialist must be more than human, fiercely loving all that is vast, ugly, and twisted within us while remaining a centered, curious, and creative guide. The Specialist is the archetype of Crazy Woman. She has inspired many wondrous and powerful destroyer goddesses in humanity’s diverse religions. But like the Tao, the destroyer goddess who can be named is not the eternal Crazy Woman. Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, shares the essence of working effectively with Crazy Woman when our modern minds are stuffed full of Western bias, false beliefs about our own shadow, and fundamental misunderstanding of the human heart.

Tools for Reclaiming Wholeness in a Culture of Trauma - Part One
The Deep Liberation Process invites us to discover how we can divest our energy and liberate our imagination from the oppressive systems and broken culture we inhabit. This is not a solo job. It is both personal and collective, but one we can only do together. If we learn to do that—to embrace and celebrate diversity, both human and nonhuman—then we will share in the manifestation of a more just and joyful future together. If we don’t, we are abandoning why we are here completely. Join us in a new series, as author and practitioner, Langston Kahn, and host, Christina Pratt, discuss a literal and accessible path forward—from wherever you are—out of your unconscious, everyday repetition of history. With this experiential skillset you can step into the fierce, unyielding heart of transformative love and restorative justice with us and our global Deep Liberation Community.
Freedom—Use It or Lose It
In honor of Independence Day we will speak this week of FREEDOM, but all patriotism stops there. We are speaking of freedom because it is essential for love and love is essential for the power to act authentically.
Doing what you have always done does not require authenticity, nor does it require much power (which is why it feels easy and comfortable). However your soul’s purpose lies out there, beyond comfort and easy, past authenticity and on into the realm of power and passion.
Are you free to express your power? Do you claim the freedom to express your true self mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, professionally, and intimately? Whereever you are not fully, passionately and powerfully your true self, you are not free.
The stories we carry of our past wounding, unmet childhood needs, and chronic fears are our own imprisonment. This week we discuss freedom and how you can cultivate inner authority, claim your freedom to love and live your true self.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I agree with a previous reviewer Christine cuts thru the BULL. She is not into herself like others she is in it because she believes and knows what the shamanic journey is about being at peace with ourselves Mother Earth father sky and loving and appreciating all of life and life’s pleasures. She cuts to the chase of peace and harmony. Like what we surfers do when we are at peace with mother ocean. Being centered with one’s self
Cuts thru the bull
I love how Christine tells like it is, no sugar coating. She’s authentic and makes you face the hard stuff along with the good. Warning-If you don’t want to feel a bit annoyed or overwhelmed, don’t listen! ;) It’s all part of the work and Christine is blunt but right.
Love her practical advice, insightful information, and great interviews. I’ve enjoyed this show for over 2 years and I haven’t found another shamanic show quite as useful and interesting.
Christina's podcast moves my heart into a space of gratitude.
I am so grateful to have discovered this podcast and Christina. I discovered it around 2011 and when I did I felt as if I had found gold and yet, at the same time, I felt as if I had found what I didn't know I wanted. Every episode inspires me to take action in some way and to find courage to face whatever I am shying away from in myself and in my life. I found this podcast at a time when I was suffering from major soul loss, though at the time I did not know what I was experiencing had a name or was recognized as something that is possible. When I listened to the episodes about soul loss I was blown away that what I was experiencing not only was recognized as something real but that I could heal from it. Simply put, finding this podcast and Christina was a prayer answered for me, a miracle. No other show has moved or inspired me more deeply than this one. Christina is one beautiful and powerful spirit!
