Welcome to my site.
We all want to live a meaningful and purposeful life, but the search for meaning often leaves us seeking instead of discovering what we want and who we truly are. I offer a personalized approach to self-discovery, where you explore and discover your capacities and possibilities.
I offer a practice centered on the Zero Point Agreement–Where we live from the inside-out, from our side, meeting life and others half-way. We learn to create and integrate our inner wisdom with the outside world. I offer ZERO POINT INTEGRATIVE HEALING SESSIONS. These healing sessions are an hour and a half long, involve narrative medicine, meditation, explorative conversation, and, integrative energy work for the last half an hour.
I also work with people in zero point circles, transformational writing circles, monthly spiritual circles and in a variety of settings. I offer a monthly, year-long writing consultation circle in Prairie du Sac, WI at Healing Services on the River, and a Transformational Writing Circle in Madison WI. (Both starting up fall 2018!) I’m known as the Writer’s Sherpa, and take to this role joyfully.
This Winter, 2018, I will be offering an Eight Stage Healing Circle for adult children of those with mental illness. This is based on my book: Hidden Victims: Hidden Healers.
You can also find me through the UW-Madison, Continuing Studies where I offer on-line and face-to-face classes to help you with your writing intentions.
An endorsement from His Holiness the Dalai Lama (an excerpt): “Because the very purpose of life is to be happy, it is important to discover what will actually give us the greatest satisfaction. Everything we experience, whether it is enjoyable or not, affects either our minds or our bodies. Generally, it is our minds that have the greatest influence over whether we are happy or not. Our minds register everything that happens to us, no matter how small. As free human beings we can use our unique intelligence to try to understand ourselves and our world. But if we are unable to use our creative potential, we lose one of the basic characteristics of a human being. In order to find mental stability and peace, the mind itself can be trained. We can cultivate positive attitudes like kindness and compassion, tolerance and contentment. Julie describes many ways to create peace and happiness, some on your own and some with your friends. “ His Holiness the Dalai Lama, July 1995, for The Thundering Years
