We at Green Tent Circle, an international women’s circle, will be launching the, "Everyone Can Do Something" movement. Starting in the Spring of 2024 we will be sharing facts, inspiration, and ideas on what women around the world are doing in their communities to take better care of each other and Mother Earth. Story telling is the groundwork for knowledge!
To prepare and guide us along the way, Shaman, Storyteller and Artist Kristin Raphaela Otti will be sharing her Spirit Animal Drawings with animal wisdom and storytelling through the Animal
Wisdom Speaks project.
Kristin will introduce an Animal Drawing, their special wisdom and a story each month!
Posts will be shared here on our website, in the Green Tent Circle Facebook Group Page and on Instagram.
Kristin Raphaela Otti was born and raised in the Lavant Valley in Southern Austria, Carinthia. She is a shaman, storyteller, artist and drawer, a student eternal, who never stops learning and pursuing new paths, using the playful approach of a trickster to the ways of old, initiating change. Being a teacher and change manager by trade, she loves analyzing old structures, tearing them down and from the ensuing chaos of creation, dreams a new path into being.
Kristin is a firekeeper, tending to the fires of winter in the hearts of those, who wish to embark on a journey deep within themselves and reignite their dreams. Our lives have become rituals, our dreams routines, our hearts are frozen, encased in ice, yet there is an ember within our hearts, a spark, that, no matter, how deep and harsh the winter in our lives is, no matter, what we have experienced, cannot be extinguished – winterfire, hope eternal. It is the energy we can feel in every being, every plant, before they burst into bloom again, it is our pure essence, our fire, our dream. She works individually, in her way, no
healing ceremony is the same, for there are no rituals to be held, but lives to be celebrated, beautiful hearts to be seen and unique dreams to be dreamt.
"Each and every single
A shaman’s task is to guide you, while you are embarking on a journey deep within your very core, your heart. Each and every single one of us, without exception, is a unique gift to this world, to all of creation. Each and every single heart bears healing within, a seed of light, waiting to be seen, to take root, to grow and to come into full bloom. A shaman takes you by the hand, guiding you through your shadows, so you can recognize your uniqueness and your incredible beauty, see yourself with bright and clear eyes, love yourself and know yourself for the gift you are. A shaman is there to guide you through storytelling, teaching and bringing back the ceremonies into your life, for your life is a ceremony and not a ritual, a gift to both you and to this world.
