Who is a part of Moonrise Hill?
My name is Julia Bernardini. I'm honored to provide you with the means to healing through this wonderful path with the plants and energy work. I offer one on one herbal consultations and energy healing sessions with Reiki.
Moonrise Hill is where it all started for me. In my own healing journey, I found that the best medicine was that which came from the land and in particular, this one hill. One that my sister and I would go to when seeking solace and understanding from the plants and animals that shared it with us. We named this place, Moonrise Hill, in honor of the many full moons we witnessed there, rising high into the sky. Every full moon we went to see, we saw the change also happening with ourselves. We welcomed the cycles and seasons turning within us, as everything in nature knows how to do. You see, it was this deep connection with the land and all its beings, that I started to understand my own connection to myself. I could finally see who I was, with all my light and shadows, already whole. As everything and everyone on this earth already is.
I started studying Reiki after feeling the profound effects it had on the chronic pain I had been suffering from. I was amazed with its gentle yet powerful ability to help me heal. I received my Reiki certification from my healer, Anna Royer in Santa Barbara. Later that spring, I moved up to Siskiyou County, to immerse myself in the transformative study of Clinical Energetic Herbalism. My teachers Karyn Sanders and Sarah Holmes of The Blue Otter School offered us deep and profound teachings on how to be healers. How to hold ourselves and walk in our power so we can ultimately hold our community and allow others to empower themselves. They gave our class a huge gift to take with us as we ventured out into the world. Herbalists with much gratitude, reverence, and our hearts wide open and full.
