Julie practices and teaches Essential Shamanism – a universal approach to working in partnership with the unseen world using natural trance states. She is the creator of “The Sacred Call of the Healer,” a yearlong shamanic initiation for artists, therapists, body and energy workers, leaders, and visionaries who carry the mantle of the healer, as well as “The Art and Practice of Shamanic Healing,” a three-year professional shamanic practitioner training that combines six weeklong in-person gatherings with an at-home curriculum for people of all walks of life who are called to facilitate shamanic healing.
Whether leading a long-term training or a stand-alone workshop, Julie teaches a heart-based approach to shamanic exploration that is predicated upon the principles of humility, integrity, dignity, maturity, and sovereignty. She believes that it is our birthright to be in direct relationship with the divine, and she is passionate about helping people remember their innate capacity to do so. Julie and her wife, Tami, as well as their Spoodles, Raspberry and Bula, divide their time between Boulder, Colorado, and Cortes Island, British Columbia.
