A 4-day journey centered around the elements; Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.
You bring the spirit!
We come to surrender to all the pieces of our experience, to release in order to re-birth ourselves from the roots of Mother Earth up to the highest potential of our being. We come to connect; to ourselves, to one another, to the Sun, the Moon, the Earth, and the elements that hold and create us. We come to shed, to make room for our highest bliss to enter us. We gather to allow our hearts to open and our minds to clear; for us to soften into a present, vital, pure state so that we can receive all we have come to experience on this Earth.

Inspired by our mere invitation to live this experience, Jules works with our innate connection to Mother Earth to bring people back to their true nature. After finishing her counseling degree at the University of New Hampshire in 2012, Jules lived with indigenous communities for the majority of her 20's; blossoming her calling as a medium for self-discovery through nature based practices and aiding in the development of permaculture farms. Jules works as a counselor, herbalist, and energy healer. She became a certified Reiki Master in 2012, and worked at Camp Augusta, a re-wilding camp for teens."For me, the biggest gift has been to live among those who have not forgotten their old ways; to be able to feel and to re-learn the wisdom in the wind and the power in a rising sun. Native Peoples teach us that there are other ways of interacting with the world and one another; through creativity, love, and stillness. At our core, we are all the same." Jules works with people to connect their hearts and deepest truths with their words, expression, and lifestyle. She guides in re-patterning the mind by providing practices for diving into the shadow, releasing what doesn't serve and creating an eternal connection to love and truth. Jules is a certified Hatha Yoga instructor, received her Permaculture Design Certificate in 2014, and is currently enrolled in Sajah Popam's School of Evolutionary Herbalism. In her free time, you can find Jules singing to the nature devas, wildcrafting local medicines, and dancing under the moon with her closest friends.
