Free: Fractured Grace: How to Create Beauty, Peace and Healing for Yourself and the World
Fractured Grace is a prescription for individual and collective healing—a resounding call for wholeness in today’s escalating state of chaos, separation and fear. With a unique and intimate journey into the author’s own healing process, from an early childhood Near-Death Experience to a freak accident with several broken bones, you are invited to step outside of an outdated worldview to create more beauty, peace and healing for yourself and the world.

Dr. Julie Krull offers an impassioned spiritual perspective on global healing and the evolution of consciousness. She demonstrates how an illusion of separation is the root cause of wide-spread pain, suffering, and even necessary whole-systems breakdown in every aspect of life. Fractured Grace breaks through that illusion and inspires a return to wholeness. Krull challenges the understanding of popular, fragmented models of healing and crisis response, and moves you into a grounded place of hope and clarity, helping you create the conditions for individual and collective healing to occur. She weaves personal stories, current events, and prophetic vision to lay the foundation for deep and regenerative systemic transformation and change. Her masterful story-telling and authentic voice, inspire and enliven the path to wholeness and the reclamation of your inherent unity. Her down-to-earth, palatable approach invites you to explore new concepts and expand your consciousness.

Fractured Grace is based on Dr. Julie’s thirty-plus-year career as a healer, spiritual teacher, and psychotherapist, working with individuals, groups and organizations, interviewing and working with hundreds of evolutionary leaders, and drawing on her own mystical experiences. The book reveals how the radical application of a heart-based, soul-centric lens can calm your mind, heal your body, create sustained peace, and jump our interconnected, whole-living-system to a higher order.

Desde el exilio: A Collection of Poems from the Exile

Desde el exilio: A Collection of Poems from the Exile
From the Exile was born as a poetic memoir to describe the experience of being born in Venezuela in 1988 to the publication of this poem collection in 2019.

This period entitles the last years of the Venezuelan democracy, already bruised by the discontent caused by the different political parties in the country before the arrival of Hugo Chavez Frias in 1998. In addition, it also describes how as the years passed, the elected president turned into an authoritarian figure sheltered by the Castro-communism ideology that firmly followed until his death in 2013.

Nevertheless, in spite of the death of the dictator, the suffering of the Venezuelans was far from culminating, because when Chavez died the power passed to his acolyte Nicolás Maduro Moros. The once time bus driver took the power of the country through fraudulent elections, that were controlled by an electoral council, mostly Chavista.

Maduro, who would follow the Chavista and Castro-communism legacy, led Venezuela to preside over the lists of the world’s most dangerous and poor countries. In this state, Venezuela struggled with hyperinflation never seen before in the oil nation’s history causing the scarcity of commodities, such as food and medicine throughout the region.

Resulting in millions of inhabitants fleeing in what was known by the name of Venezuelan diaspora looking for the future that was taken from them in other countries. The nostalgia for the lost country, from exile. $8.49 on Kindle.
