Show 39 – Impossibility?



In this show Jeff and John-Luke reflect in conversation with Langston Kahn on Impossibility and how relationships with whatever we choose to call the spirits, may make that improbable


Langston Kahn is a queer black New York City based shamanic practitioner specializing in deep emotional healing and radical transformation. He stands firmly at the crossroads, his practice informed by the western modality of Inner Relationship Focusing, initiations into traditions of the African Diaspora (including Lucumí and Quimbanda), the contemporary shamanic tradition of The Last Mask Center and the guidance of his helping spirits and ancestors weaving it all together.


Langston has studied and facilitated Inner Relationship Focusing, developed by Ann Weiser Cornell for the last 10 years. He has completed 5 years of training with Christina Pratt in the Cycle of Transformation and also serves on the leadership council for the Last Mask Community, a community of contemporary people striving to live in alignment with ancient shamanic beliefs and principles in a way that answers the unique challenges of our time.


He firmly believes that no emotional wounds or trauma are beyond healing and is devoted to guiding adventurous souls in transmuting what has been poison in their lives into medicine for themselves and the world through one on one sessions, community ritual and in person and online classes.
