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.

Deerhide drum

I was studying this drum the other day. The hide was prepared by my hands the traditional way using ash and bone scrappers. The frame is made of white pine from my tree in the north woods of Wisconsin. I was so much younger when I created this earthy instrument. Now the memory is a story to pass on. I celebrate my birth this day. I celebrate the beat of my heart as it is one with the earth. I give thanks and gratitude and flow into 2010 with much appreciation.
