Julie studied the art of Transcendental Meditation when she met the challenge of a diagnosis of depression 20 years ago. Thus began her successful healing journey.

Her further education has consisted of training professionally in Tarot reading, a Certificate in Holistic Communications and she is currently studying her Advanced Dip in Holistic Living Counselling.
She is an accredited member of the International Mindfulness Teachers Association, a senior member of Meditation Australia and a member of the International Institute of Complimentary Therapists (IICT).
Julie joined Lisa’s meditation group in 2003. Loving instantly this form of meditation, she became a regular and then went on to complete the Certificate in Guiding and Teaching Meditation. She moved to rural Victoria with her husband and began running meditation groups locally as well as teaching meditation to children in local schools and in after school programs. Julie has created a wonderful website offering children’s meditation:
