Name: Julie A Carda

After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities 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. Besides writing fiction, Julie is co-creating a Space of Love through advocacy for Kin Domains.

Fire Shaman

I want to present a dear spiritual Kin of mine, Jojopah Maria Nsoroma. She is currently a consultant working with the Alma Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin building a program, the Fatherhood Wisdom Walk Project. Through story, spirit, ancestor guides and ritual she has opened another dimension for men with violent pasts to find healing and create a brighter future. The link takes you to a recent newsletter article outlining the program. Besides her work with the Alma Center, Jojopah has created a space of love. Visit her vision for Spirit House.

"Jojopah is a Fire Shaman, gifted diviner and spiritual teacher. She is learned in both West African and Native American shamanic healing arts, and combines them to create what she calls the “Medicine of the Buffalo and the Lion,” which she infuses with Christ Consciousness. Before becoming a devotional artist, Jojopah worked in the field of human services, focusing on children, youth, and community, for over 25 years. She continues to serve that field as a consultant and promoter of spirituality in the workplace."
