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.

Eco Christmas Tree

In December, I create a bit of festivity around my mineral altar. I cover the collection of stones at the base of my artificial pencil tree with a piece of gold flecked white fabric.

I string a set of LED lights between the white bows, tiny pine cones and small bird's nest I rescued from the ground this past summer. I have a few ornaments that people have given me over the years.

Occasionally, I will add these but some years I just want simple. For me, simple is when I allow my gaze to extend outward into nature and take pleasure from her unique decor.
