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.

Violet Beauty

Not long ago a woman gave me a violet plant--the plant in the photo actually. This violet is an offspring of a violet her mother had received. When the woman's mother died twenty years ago, she made a commitment to propagate her mother's beauty through the plant. Her mother's vision remains alive all over the U.S. as many women share parts of the original.

Violets are such a metaphor for life and the interconnected web of all being. They like the east light from whence comes spirit. They take root from one leaf and stem stuck into earth. They eat and drink sparingly and give an abundance of love inspired flowers.

Today a friend of mine experienced the death of her mother. I send her the healing light and abundant love held in the mystery of the violet.
