About Julie

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.

Julie has an amazing gift that helps bring great clarity and inspiration to my life every time I meet with her.

She has been instrumental in bringing my dreams to life. Julie is such a warm, positive person, with wonderful energy and a great sense of humor that it's always a treat when we meet.

I highly recommend Julie’s trainings for anyone looking to step into their empowered and sovereign self.

Julie is a consummate professional, working from a strong ethical framework. She instills in her participants self-confidence and unending trust in their own helping spirits. Julie’s trainings will change your life.

One of Julie's greatest gifts is her ability to teach others to journey so that they are empowered to access higher wisdom on their own.

Julie is a shawoman, a gifted guide and a visionary who truly sees the wholeness, the magic and the possibility for transformation of each individual. Her work has served as a critical rung on my ladder of knowing my true self at a deeper level. Thank you Julie, for sharing this amazing gift with me.
