Radiant Heart Summer Retreat

Take the weekend to join an intimate group of women and journey into a magical sanctuary. Let your creativity soar as you surround yourself with the beauty of nature and the blessing of being supported and nurtured. If your life is your song, gift yourself with the time and guidance to create this song and the courage to sing it.

Your weekend Includes:

Authentic vocal technique: You were born making your own authentic sound. Through a combination of relaxation and simple yet profound steps you will be guided to reclaim your authentic voice and given practices to gain more vocal mastery from whatever level you’re at.

Body Singing: Using Julie’s specially designed tracks we move, breathe, and sing the body open. Your body is your instrument.

Improvisation: Let your voice become an extension of who you are as we sing, play,  and create.

Chants and Mantras: We journey from the depths of vocal meditation to the heights of expressive singing with timeless, heart-opening chants and songs from all over the world.

Forgiveness Ceremony: Being guided by the principals of Ho'Oponopono, a traditional Hawaiian healing, we will sing ourselves free from burdens and resentments of the past.

Naming Song: Inspired by the African practice of a community creating a song for each child born, we will create a soul song for each member of our community.

Personal Anthem – May you find your song and sing it. You’ll have time, guidance and inspiration to create your own soul song in the beautiful surrounding nature.

Singing with Julie opened me to a deeper connection with my Soul and Spirit I have not felt since I was 18 years old. Since I’m now 65, I had fears about singing and didn’t think I had a voice to sing anymore. Julie modeled the teaching every step of the way in the most loving, skillful and inspirational way.  I left the retreat knowing I could sing in all ranges of my voice; I could compose and I could improvise! Thank you Julie for giving me back my first love.

I came to Julie’s retreat and created a song that represented the real me. I cried while I sang my song, it meant being vulnerable to share the real me, my chance.  ALL the women there with open hearts and 100% attention on me. They heard me, they felt me and they understood me... cuz I was not the only one who felt the same way.  By the end of the retreat, we all were arm and arm singing the most beautiful and meaningful songs smiling and laughing with each other. This weekend changed my life forever.”

I gifted myself a weekend retreat with Julie and created magic. Julie hooked me up to my very own creation station and I was able to not only create and perform my own song but help two other women who were struggling, create theirs as well. If someone had told me even a week prior that I would be able to do that I would not have believed it. I still sing my song, it changed me and I love it.”

Julie has an almost magical way of bringing out your voice and making you comfortable and free to sing. Being together at a beautiful place to heal, breathe, relax and create my own song was magical.”
