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.

The Grandest Adventure

Deep inside is the urge to discover the unknown--whether physical, intellectual or spiritual in nature. It starts with dreams of wide open space. Akin to Hatsheput, Alexander the Great, Marco Polo, Ferdinand Magellan, Meriwether Clark, Ernest Shackleton and Neil Armstrong. But when the wide open physical space is no more, humans turn toward the vast unknown within the intellect and spirituality. Akin to a blank canvas, mound of clay, chunk of marble, stretch of prairie, mountain top, or meditation practice, regardless of the platform, the urge to discover the unknown must be soothed. However, as history has been loath to say, the grand adventure isn’t about finding, claiming, owning, devouring but about allowing the urge a place to swell, cascade and gently flow in a co-creative process. It is an urge to be part of, and intimately connected to, something as much or more than the Self.
