Hello everyone!

I’m Julian, born and raised in Denver, CO, though I lived in Ogden, UT for two years from 2014-2016. I absolutely love adventure and the outdoors, spending time with wonderful people, music, good food, spirituality, and anything Sci Fi or Fantasy. Backpacking and trekking is one of my favorite activities, I’m so excited to share this experience with you all. I made many trips to Southern Utah in my time there, and went on a trek in Peru in the summer of 2016, but I know this experience will be even more special and amazing, I wholly expect it to change my life. I’m excited to experience this trip with and meet all of you!

I graduated from HS last year, and used the majority of the time between then and now growing spiritually and emotionally, trying to build myself as close to the person I’d like to be as possible. I’ve been studying with a mentor in spirituality and energy healing, and learning to build my which has completely changed my life. I’m extremely excited to grow even more spiritually and as a person in such a spiritually rich country, I’m beyond excited for our time at the Gompa. I will be starting college at Regis University in the Fall, majoring in psychology, following that graduates school for social work, to become a therapist, in conjunction with being a spiritual healer.

Group experiences are the most memorable I’ve ever had, I can’t wait to meet you all and spend the next three months with everyone!

Best wishes,
