This is a program about Self-Mastery. In order to teach this three part Spiritual practice, you must walk the practice on a daily basis, and, as a result, the Rei will MASTER you!

If you are interested in this unique program, you can take it in its entirely and become trained as a Holographic Energy Master or take individual components, starting with Holographic Reiki Level I for general interest and personal growth.

This is a program series I was inspired to create as a result of my years of training with several incredible teachers/mentors in the field. Through training with Landmark Education, including a six month leadership program, I gained remarkable skills in leadership training, communications, public speaking, how to be unstoppable in the face of fear, the power of intention, and how to stand in all possibilities and create from nothing. The skills & training I received enhanced my entrepreneurial and visionary abilities, and helped to awaken me to my own potential and sacred contract as a born natural healer, visionary leader, teacher of teachers and messenger of the soul.

If you are called to BE YOUR OWN HEALER, FOLLOW YOUR OWN PATH AND CREATE YOUR OWN FUTURE take the first step now...

The completion of the Holographic Energy Series, along with the Holographic Energy Master Program requirements as outlined on the Program Description Chart, lead to certification by Julie Desmarais as a Holographic Energy Master.

Sacred Truth Forgiveness Circle

"Forgiveness does not mean I condone what you did to me, it simply means I am no longer willing to carry around pain in response to your actions." Doreen Virtue

This healing circle is based on a Native American Healing Ceremony. It is mostly a non-verbal process which preserves privacy and anonymity, yet has proven itself to be extremely powerful and effective in allowing people to forgive themselves and others, and to find peace and happiness within. Enter a sacred and safe space where you can allow forgiveness of yourself and others. A personal experience that can be defined as "life altering".

Only held 4 times a year to celebrate the change of seasons.

This one evening program can be taken on its own, and is also an integral part of the Holographic/Usui Reiki Master Certificate Program and the Holographic Energy Master Certificate Program.

On Reiki I:

Julie’s classes are motivating, fun and enlightening! I entered Julie’s Holographic Reiki I class expecting to study hard, focus and take many notes to keep up with the rest of the class. To my surprise, Julie had a different way of teaching. Her workshop has many interactive learning methods and used her own life experiences as examples while welcoming others to share. She has an amazing way of communicating and listening to others while simply shinning in each moment with bright love.

I feel more than blessed to be in her class. Not only did I have the chance to learn how to incorporate the fundamentals of Reiki within each moment of my journey, but I also felt more and energy in one room than ever before.

Julie is blessed with being clairvoyant and able to read archetypes, animal totems,
past lives, emotional and mental imbalances, and speaks to the higher selves of loved ones, living and deceased.  Her role in my life, as one of my spiritual  guides, has enabled me to follow a much healthier path in life.

Not only did I walk away fully connected to the Divine, but I also left with an insight into my soul and life’s purpose. Julie is a unique person filled with loving compassion and I would recommend the Holographic Reiki workshop to every being on this planet.

On Reiki II

I loved Reiki II!  Here Julie taught us how to connect with the Higher Selves of
others to send distant healing. We learned that we could send energy across a room, across town, across continents and across dimensions to speak to living and deceased
loved ones!

I am an animal lover and have always had pets, but have not always known how to help them in a time of need.  In Julie's class, I experienced connecting with my dog that was not well and was shown how to send him healing energy. This really
helped my dog and helped me! Thank you Julie for showing me how!

In Reiki II, Julie showed us how to send energy into the future to support us with
upcoming challenging events. The energy stores up like a battery and is waiting for us at the time of the event (interview, exam, date, dental or surgery appointment, etc.). This is really cool stuff! I do not know what I ever did without it!

It was fascinating to get to work with the Reiki
symbol tools that help her do this, and are now helping me do the same!  I highly
recommend this class to anyone wanting to enhance their healing abilities.

On Reiki III

I can truly say that my outlook on life totally  changed when I took Julie's Reiki III over 13 years ago. The way she taught the class put everything together for me. I don't even want to imagine what my life might have been like without it. Thank you, Julie, for sharing your light.

At the end of my Reiki III class, I was left with insights into my soul and life's purpose which propelled me, 6 months later, into realizing my dream of starting my own healing practice.

Julie is a unique person filled with loving compassion and I would recommend the
Holographic Reiki III workshop to everyone ready to move forward in their lives.

On Sacred Roots, Forgotten Truths

It’s been almost a year now since I’ve completed the “Sacred Roots” class and I
wanted to take some time to thank you for the experience and the personal growth I went through.

The archetype wheel definitely helped me to better understand character traits I had in some areas of my life and simplified some longing questions I had.

Understanding better how I react or approach certain areas of my life helped me
tremendously to steer how I now react or address a particular situation.

Since I much better understand some of the relationships I have with others and with myself, I better understand some of the teachings that come my way and also embrace some of the challenges I have encountered.

I have actually incorporated the soul's potential wheel into my “Be, Believe, Achieve” wheel which fits very well. Time will tell if this combination is a personal success.

Again, a big thank you for your dynamic personality, clairvoyance and genuine
willingness to help others grow.


My creativity and hope were blocked, until I took Sacred Contracts with Julie. It was truly an amazing and awakening experience. So much so that other attendees commented on the change in me in just eight weeks.

It was pure joy to participate in this course. What fun it was to uncover my archetypes and witness the group discovering theirs; all in a lovely sacred space to discover and share.  Julie brilliantly designed the course to work the key points on this journey and offer a springboard for in-depth exploration of how each archetype plays out in life situations.  It was an amazing experience to witness my own unfolding amongst a group of lovely, magical & supportive women.   It is a must attend course!


Thank you! The Sacred Roots course was so wonderful. I didn’t know what to expect but I knew it would be something wonderful coming from you and it was. What you do for others is a true gift and “we” learn and heal in so many ways from your teachings and awakenings. In the Sacred Roots course it was fun learning about all the different facets (whys and hows) of my sacred contracts. I loved being introduced to my 12 original Archetypes too. I wouldn’t have gotten the same value or understanding if I had done it on my own. In the end everything came together for me in one beautifully wrapped gift box. I am so thankful you do these classes.
You’ll see me soon at another class.

With warmth and appreciation, CR

This course has been a huge blessing for me and very rewarding even as it was super challenging! I had a powerful dream this past week and have experienced significant shifts at all levels of my being. I am deeply grateful for Julie’s support and that of my sister journeyers who were all beacons of light and inspiration to me.


On Chakra Blessings

This is a  transformational workshop. If you are stuck in any aspect of your life and just can't seem to find the answers, or if you just want to take a meaningful journey with like-minded people, this class is for you. Julie provides a safe, nurturing, truly caring environment where you are free to be yourself and risk seeing your soul's true potential. You will leave feeling regenerated, inspired and at peace with where you are, in this moment, as part of a bigger plan. I highly recommend this class, which is filled with personal "aha" moments, to beginners and advanced teachers alike.


When arrived I was feeling hopeless, rejected, unloved, and beaten in regards to my love relationship.  My work I feel has been stagnant although I know it will not be for long and my finances have been improving but at a snail 's pace since I am a part-time single Mom.  When I left last night I had regained my self confidence and self love and empowered me to take charge of my feelings and life once again.

I look forward to attending more of your mini workshops
