“In this beautiful book, Julie Tallard Johnson—a gifted teacher and writer—brings fresh insight to an ancient truth: each of us must live from the inside out. This book, the Zero Point Agreement—full of resources that range from heart-deep insight to helpful practical exercises—can help us reclaim the treasure-trove of our own experience and being.” –Parker J. Palmer, author of Healing the Heart of Democracy, Let Your Life Speak, and The Courage to Teach
“For me the highest plane of creativity is found in one’s practice, and Julie offers the reader a real means to follow through on one’s creative and spiritual intentions. The read is straightforward and gratifying; the pilgrimage itself a worthwhile, even required engagement for the spiritual hero.” –Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art and The Legend of Bagger Vance, endorsing The Wheel of Initiation
"I was captivated by Julie's accessible treatise on how we are all charged with making meaning in our daily lives. I found The Zero Point Agreement dazzling because it is so packed with actual, practical wisdom. I can honestly say it has already changed my life." –Meg Cox, author of The Book of New Family Traditions
Welcome to my site.
In my work as a psychotherapsit, group facilitator, concept manager & creative writing consultant, I understand that everyone wants to live a purposeful life, but the search for meaning often leaves us seeking instead of finding what we want. I offer a different approach to self-discovery, where we EXPLORE what we want and create meaning from within rather than seek it from the outside world. We can rely on the science behind personal spiritual experiences and creativity. You can discover simple evidence-based methods that can be applied to any situation to generate enthusiasm, inspiration, and direct experience with your creativity, and transform the inner and outer landscapes of your life.
I work with people one to one, in circles and in a variety of settings.
I offer a practice centered on what I call the Zero Point Agreement--the realization that you are the zero point, and that life’s purpose comes from within. I would lke for you to explore and discover who you already are by naming what you want and taking steps to make it a reality.
I have worked with with clients and students for over 35 years. I have traveled as far as Australia to help set up my eight stage healing process (now a national program), and my books are transcribed in dozens of languages.
