You’re getting stressed out kind of often, anxious about your personal life and/or the world. Maybe you procrastinate, or perhaps you go into overdrive and do too much until your body starts wearing down. You forget to notice all the things that are actually working in your life–how you’re growing, the unexpected gifts that show up, the people that love you. You know you don’t do well under stress, but you can’t control all the external factors that trigger it. Yoga, exercise, and reading self-help books do provide some relief, but you can’t do those things all day long.
The Women’s Release and Empower Group is designed to help you:
- Be able to release stress as often as you need to, throughout the day
- More quickly notice when you’re stuck, and then choose to shift
- Tap into clear guidance when you need it
- Feel relaxed and strong enough to move forward with the things that matter to you
- Appreciate your life and know you are really worth it
This is not therapy or interpersonal processing work. It’s women taking care of themselves, together. If you take care of other people professionally or in your personal life, and you’re craving space away from the noise to hear your own voice again, this group was created for you.
The program consists of 12 group sessions, a season of commitment to emotional release and self-care. Each session is like a mini-retreat, where a group of like-minded women gather in community for the practice of four powerfully simple tools:
(1) THERAPEUTIC WRITING
A way to compost the trash talk in your mind and gain surprisingly easy access to your own intuition and guidance
(2) SOMATIC RELEASE
Simple methods for letting go of emotions that have been stored in the body
Relaxing into the experience of feeling both lighter and more grounded, clear in your wisdom, and reconnected with your heart
(4) SPEAKING AUTHENTICALLY
Using your real voice from a place of presence, power, and self-compassion

FOR QUESTIONS OR TO REGISTER: I know we all love the quick click sign-up, but I do brief phone calls with everyone first. This allows me to answer questions, make sure this group is a good fit for you, and get you signed up. All you have to do now is fill out this form to set up your free call.
Is this group right for me?
This group is designed for women who give a lot of physical or emotional care to others, whether that be professionally or in your personal life. It’s a great fit if you’re going through a life transition, wanting to be healthier and kinder to yourself, finding a new path after a loss, struggling with low-level but lifelong anxiety, living as an empath or highly sensitive person, or just trying to maintain equilibrium through daily stressors. It won’t be the right fit if you’re experiencing major mental health issues or struggling with active addictions. If you’re unsure, set up a call, and we’ll figure it out together!
What if I have to miss some sessions?
Of course, this will happen once in a while (hopefully because you’re doing something relaxing and fun!) When you miss a session, you can ask for a volunteer to partner with you for the week. I’ll explain this option in full detail when the group gets started, or on your free phone call if you’d like to know more now.
I’m unsure and a little nervous about the commitment. Is there some way to see if I’ll like it?
Yes! You can call me and ask all your questions, ask to speak with a former participant, or join me at a free sample workshop on Sunday, January 19th at 11am at Austin Boxing Babes. The workshop is a great opportunity to try out the practices and connect with like-minded women.
I have gotten so much from this group. Julia creates a safe, warm, loving space to look inside, release, and ground back into the part of me that feels the most authentic and loved. The process she uses is simple and profound. I look forward to meeting each week with supportive women who give me space to work through whatever is going on in my life.
A beautiful, sacred, safe, free of judgment space to express myself without having to explain the backstory. This group gives me time to be open with myself without the pressure of having to make it look a certain way.
I’m so glad I decided to sign up for Release & Empower. Each week I feel more comfortable with myself and with the other women in the group. I’ve learned skills and tools to take care of myself, and I feel connected to the truth of life’s ups and downs in a more accepting way.
This is an amazing experience. I don’t think anyone could come away from this unchanged.
