Groups and Upcoming Events

Release & Empower

If you take care of other people professionally or in your personal life, and you’re craving a space away from the noise to hear your own voice again, this program was created for you. It’s not group therapy or interpersonal processing. It’s women taking care of themselves, together. It’s release and empowerment for the mind, the body, and the heart. Pre-screening calls are available now for the online community and the in-person fall series. Find out more here!


Try out the Release & Empower practices and experience the beauty of self-healing in community. Free workshops are held 2-3 times a year, next date TBD. To receive an email when the next workshop date is set, sign up for my mailing list here. Alternatively, you can set up a free Q & A phone call with me and try out the online community any Tuesday evening.


FREE VIRTUAL GATHERINGS with special guest Rosalva de las Flores

Throughout the ages and across cultures, in dark times and in light, people have gathered around fires for song, dance, and prayer. We are in a new world now, but what nourishes and fortifies the human spirit hasn’t changed. Whoever you are, wherever you come from, if you come with heart and respect for others, you are welcome here.


*Due to restrictions on public gatherings, Community Wellness Hour is currently on hiatus. Please sign up here to receive updates! If you’d like to attend virtual Community Wellness Hours, you can sign up to receive emails about future virtual circles.

Austin Book Release

Book Release at BookPeople, Feb. 2015


Julia is a highly spiritual and open-hearted facilitator and teacher. She has a gift for holding a safe space, structuring without rigidity or judgment, and presenting highly inclusive invitations for personal exploration. I would recommend her workshops and retreats both to helping professionals and the general public.

I feel refreshed and energized. I am thankful for Julia’s lovely presence and helpful guidance. Her quiet acceptance allowed us to be at ease as we moved into each part of the program. I am very grateful.

This workshop gave me great insight into myself. Julia is a wonderful facilitator. Very safe and relaxing. I am walking away from this renewed in my self-confidence.
