‘Once Upon A New Moon’ by Katharina Notarianni features poems that were written during a time when the author was seeking to better understand life, the universe and who she is. These poems are the outcome of a New Moon shamanic creative group where each session began with a shamanic journey and the writing emerged out of the experience.
During her shamanic training, Katharina was also inspired to express herself creatively by crafting various “medicine” items. This book features full color images of some of her shamanic creative works to illustrate more of what’s possible with the shamanic creative process.
Even now, after many years, she is amazed at how the shamanic creative process, which involves establishing a connection with spirit and reflecting on who she is, who she has been, and who she is becoming, opened the doors of perception bringing about a deeper understanding of her Self and thereby enriched her life with greater love of self, others and all that is.
It is her hope that these poems will inspire you to begin your own creative journey of self awareness and creative expression.
