Moon + Wild represents the core of my spirit and mission, understood as the unique contribution we all can offer to the world and the comunity around us, sinergy of the beauty and ispiration of our divine-self.
Moon is my cyclic, mystic and intuitive female nature, marked by the initiatic passages of women's blood.
Wild is the path under my feet, the knoledge of the ancient green spirits, the arcana viridia, medicine and healing.
...MY NAME IS CRISTINA PANDOLFO AKA DIANARA
I was born in Sicily at the end of may in 1986, with Sun in Gemini and Moon in an earth sign. Author and freelancer lecturer I have been published and worked on different type of books, mainly concerning magical-spiritual, ecological and holistic topics, and collaborated with international professionals and pagan magazines. I am also a licensed landscape architect specialized in healing gardens, physic gardens and ecospirituality (as designer I have been working in Italy, UK and U.S.A to different kind of projects such as residential, public, scholastic, commercial and health care centers), a trained phytotherapist, esoteric herbalist and Plant Spirit Healing practitioner.
In 2014 I have been ordained Dianic Clergy (Priestess) by the Temple of Diana, validating a spiritual path started during adolescence, affirming my dedication to female wisdom and awakening, by supporting women and their spiritual needs.
I am founder of the Spiritual Dianic Organization Domina Lunae and I have been teaching classes and workshops about witchcraft and women's spirituality in Italy and abroad since 2010.
I am currently living in Great Britain, in South Wales. My work embraces both the spiritual and the earthly world, and for both of them I offer my skills and availability.
