Julia Corbett has been practicing the art of self portraiture for the past four years, and photography since she was a teen. The self portraits began as a way to connect with the body, to see how it moved and flowed, so she could photograph others in a meaningful way, beyond the posed smile. It goes into the realm of the cosmic, and connecting it back to the earth in a tangible way, connecting with the elements, living beings, and capturing the relationship between them all. It evokes a feeling. Through using layers of nature and prismatic light, Julia creates dreamscape portraits and cosmic self imagery.
For the past 10 years Julia has been working with the cacao plant, which first began as a culinary relationship through two different dessert companies she founded, and evolved into a more heart centered awareness practice with cacao ceremony. A relationship built to last ;) The deeper the dive, into intention and listening to what wants to be unearthed, the more beauty becomes of the process. Cacao gives access to the heart, to deeper feeling, and can facilitate the process of unfolding the self, through layers hidden in feeling. All allowed to surface through the heart. Such welcomed magic and mystery in this plant.
Work with me, collaborations are welcome!

Cacao Ceremony :: Private ceremony or group work
Pure cacao medicine is a guide through the Heart Center. Experience a magical blend of pure wild harvested Ecuadorian cacao and spices, to awaken the bliss body and connect to our inner being, our beauty, our creative center.
Private cacao ceremony :: join in ceremony with me, out in nature or your home. I invite you to dive into the magic of cacao with me. we will drink cacao medicine infused with heart opening herbs and create a space for you to sit with the elements, to feel your heart opening, to gently release what is not serving you and to invite in your intentions. we will have a simple altar set up, we will listen to natures sounds, and i will guide a meditation with the earth. from there we will intuitively listen to the energy and move through with the cacao medicine. come sit with nature, your self, and the love that holds us all.
Cacao is a plant that awakens the body through heart opening chemicals and nutrients. when taken in its pure form (ie not chocolate) and consumed with intention, it is a powerful plant ally. it opens us to the full spectrum of feeling, our hearts are allowed to drop in, and to feel the body relaxing and opening. this is a feminine earth medicine. invite this magic into your life, let the prisms awaken, and embody your most true self in compassion and love.
Sourced from Ecuador, the wild harvested cacao used in ceremony is from 100 yr old trees in the highland mountains, fed by spring water and harvested by hand. This cacao is then processed by fermenting, washing, winnowing & stone grinding the cacao into a pure paste. It is tested for purity and is free from toxins that can occur in improperly processed cacao. This is the form that is used in ceremony, where the paste is dissolved back into its liquid state through heat and alchemized with spring water and a special blend of herbs and spices.
