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.

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.
