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.

Winter in the Kin Domain Garden

Under this precious snow cover is the Kin Domain garden. At last sleeping for the season. The sweet earth labored longer than usual this year and gave plentifully. She deserves her rest.

The chickens are snug and warm. The light 60 watt bulb supplies PLENTY of heat. Even in the near zero temps, I must crack the open the Plexiglas door to let in cool, fresh air.

By the way, chickens do not like snow. I had to sprinkle some straw on top of the snow in their coop to coax them out into the sunshine. They didn't stay out long but it gave me enough time to change the bedding, food, water, and pick the eggs from the nests. So long enough.

The converted dog house has been a blessing!
