Teen Psychic: Exploring Your Intuitive and Spiritual Powers won a star review in Publisher's Weekly
Julie is the recipient of 3 Reading Roundtable awards for her earlier teen books. And the New York Library awarded Making Friends/Finding Love a Best Book for Teens.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Parker J Palmer, and Steven Pressfield are a few who speak highly of Julie's works and books.
There are eleven pithy slogans that can be used as practice points and reminders of the zero point agreement, which is to live life from your side. These are accessible to anyone from any religious or spiritual background, as well as those who live a more humanistic or secular life-style. These are not exhaustive or to be used as clubs. They are simply pointers, references to help in living life from the zero point. Each of these are brought out throughout the book but can be more quickly referenced here. Pithy intentions, slogans, and principles can redirect the mind, in the moment, in a beneficial way.
