After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University.

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.

Birth Night Poem

Moonlit night so soothing bright
soft shadows dance in delight.

Big white glow influences below

undulating waves both high and low.

The fullness reminiscent of the lady's ripe womb

the silence embracing the stillness of whom?

The energetic pulsing shudders through the loom

shoved aside to prepare the baby's room.

December the third beckons near and dear

as the luminescent ball travels the sky without fear.

Count steady the hours passing slowly by

until red blinks its enormous eye.

But under the gaze of the yellow sun

the birthing waned only just begun.

The child, it seemed wanted his birth

illuminated in moonlight upon this sweet earth.

~Dedicated to my eldest son born December 3, 1990
