Julia is the founding director of the Shamanic Arts Center located in Hotchkiss, Colorado.
The Shamanic Arts Center in Hotchkiss, Colorado is a training center and media hub for shamanic artists, wisdom teachers and traveling shamans. The mission of the Center is to provide sacred space, promotion & support to shamanic artists and practitioners who are presenting programs, ceremonies, & retreats that foster human health and connection to our beloved Pachamama – Grandmother Earth and all the beings who live here.
The Shamanic Arts Center hosts Encounters of the Shamanic Kind (a free salon) monthly, guest programs featuring traveling artists, shamans or wisdom teachers, and a yearly festival/camp called Traveling Shamans Camp. Our website features a directory of shamanic artists & practitioners allowing directory members to promote their services and events. In addition, the website serves as a social media outlet for Talk Story Media, a social media channel that features interviews with shamanic artists and practitioners.
