Recent Testimonials:

“All staff were positive about what we worked on; they were highly complimentary about Julie’s facilitation skills and positive personality.”

— parish administrator of a Catholic staff for whom Julie lead a recent retreat day

“Professor Neraas is among the best professors that I have had the opportunity to work with. The Prophets and Mystics course was a transformational experience for me, and I ended up learning as much about myself as well as the material presented. If I had to point to any one course from which I found a vocational calling, it would certainly be this one. “
— student in interdisciplinary graduate level course, Prophets & Mystics

“Julie is a truly gifted spiritual director. As a frequent participant in Julie’s spiritual direction groups, I can attest to the emotional and spiritual nourishment, as well as the intellectual stimulation these mini-retreats provide. She is brilliant at creating a space in which we can listen to our lives and listen for Spirit’s presence in our lives.”
