heart leafWhen you get to the place in your life where you know you must attend to your spirit, where do you go? Often traditional religion is not the answer, so where can you devote your heart to listening to the messages of Spirit? Many people do it alone, but it is a challenging journey and having mighty companions [...]

This winter I will be offering a workshop based on some clear and practical methods of drawing to you the life you want. It is called Tools for Reprogramming your Life and first stop is Michigan in January. Then Seattle in February and hopefully the Denver area in March.

There is so much misunderstanding about the Law of Attraction, about setting goals and intentions, about the difference between what the conscious and the non-conscious mind’s role is in co-creating. This workshop [...]

Last week a group of six adventurous individuals began the 18 month Spiritual Vision Quest program. These were no newbies to the personal growth process, yet after just a few short days, I heard comments like, “This is not just another program!” The difference is that it challenges every core belief you have and trips every wire that activates the inner fear/protection of shining too brightly! It takes great courage to face all THAT!! Here are the brave ones! READ MORE... NO COMMENTS

Meeting of (spiritual) Minds

by Julie September 17, 2014

This last week a group of serious (well, committed) spiritual beings collected for their third intensive here at Spirit Vision Retreat center. It was a fabulous week. Amidst the joy and laughter was gentle and not so gentle growth, shifting perceptions (again!) and opportunities for seeing each other as spirit would~ with unconditional acceptance and love. What a blessing that there are people in this busy, chaotic world committed to putting spirit in charge daily! Thank you, how grateful I [...]

Summer Girls Camp

by Julie July 19, 2014

Each year I feel compelled to offer a camp for young teens. And half way through, I ask myself, Julie, WHY? But it wasn’t til the end of the week this year that I remembered the answer! A challenging group, difficult to merge, all beautiful young women with wonderful attributes and big hearts, they ALL seemed to want to hide them. It didn’t matter how gorgeous or how talented, how expressive or how sweet, they were playing small for the [...]

Summer Camp Bliss

by Julie May 19, 2014

There are some moments that mark your childhood as hallmark events and summer camps happen to be among those. This camp I offer for young girls is one of those times for me still! I figure if you can’t go back and live it again, you can recreate it now!

A small group of intensely loving and devoted spirits got even smaller this week, returning after 6 months, with one less devotee. They are one year into the Spiritual Vision Quest program and owning the principles of spirit~ unity, community and love and sharing their tools and gifts with others.

Kindle Version here!

by Julie December 23, 2013

Finally the Kindle version of Relationships: Gifts of the Spirit is available. RGOS-cover-sm-thumbnailThis is my first book, a great manual for all sorts of relationships, as seen through the lens of the spirit (finding the lesson someone is here to offer you) vs the ego (with its never ending drama and challenges). It’s a great gift idea for young couples, people struggling with [...]

First Challenge!!

by Julie October 23, 2013

WHAT a fabulous first Challenge!! I am so delighted. The people involved were so eager for everything I had to offer and went as deep as I guided! It really was not a retreat at all, in fact, one woman suggested we call it an advance, since that is what it felt like it did for her life. It was a real joy; exhilarating, fascinating, engaging and very expansive! Thank you!!

A tenacious Spirit Group!

by Julie

This year two Spiritual Vision Groups have formed. Does this mean more people on the planet value a higher vibrational way of existing? I hope so. This second 2013 group came together in September and as a unit are initiative takers and mature. Already they startle me with how easily they absorb the spirit in everything and live it. I wonder who they will be in a year from now, much less 18 months! As Einstein says, “nothing changes until [...]

What a great concert it was! Henry (only 15 years old) captivated and entertained the audience as he played a great selection of his own music and songs we all knew from years past. Experiences like this one don’t come along every day. To be notified of future events, sign up for the quarterly newsletter and check the calendar.

Summer Benefit Concert

by Julie July 17, 2013

Sunday was the second annual music concert for Inspiring Grace, a non profit organization aimed at assisting young people with improving body, mind and spirit esteem. Holly McGarry, a Sandpoint small-town girl and fantastic musician, and the band, Cedar & Boyer, also from Sandpoint, played against a backdrop of mountains, valley and beautiful sky! It was delightful!
