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.

Glass Slippers and Love


Wouldn't this make a fun Google search--why was a glass slipper, versus a wooden slipper marble slipper, gold, or clay slipper, chosen by Perrault in 1697, to identify one's true love?

My thought: Is love transparent?

Symbolism is fascinating. I'd like to hear from you why you think glass was chosen. No fair doing a Google search first!
