Julie graduated from Creighton University with a major in dance and Theology and taught for several years at an inner-city school in Milwaukee. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she attended St. John’s University in Collegeville and completed a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the years, her quest to merge diverse religious beliefs and practices through the commonalities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal source of love in all people.

Spirit animals

Animals really want to be connected to humans. They seek to please. This spirit cat tends the sweat lodge. He keeps the mice down and greets the weekly group of participants. He loves to sit curled near the sacred portal between the fire and the lodge door.

In the Ringing Cedar series, Anastasia explains how animals used to serve humans, always ready to please them. I love her relationship with the bear, wolf, and eagle. A bear who digs a garden and provides warmth on a winter night. A wolf who supervises a toddler and an eagle who lifts that toddler above the trees to get a bird's eye view of his/her space of love.

Incredulous though it seems, the image is spectacular. Read more about this experience and Kin Domains in the Ringing Cedar series by Vladimir Megre.
