Giulia Turolla

My name is Giulia Turolla and I am an Italian contemporary witch, Priestess and Teacher in the Ara Tradition.
I graduated with honors in Classical Letters and Archaeology and Cultures of the Ancient World from Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna.

My personal path focuses on the practice of witchcraft as an indigenous form of shamanism and aims to rediscover and rebuild the Sacred Net that binds us to the Spirits and the Gods of the place we live in.

As a researcher of European witchcraft and magic in the Ancient World, I have participated to many conferences and events, both national and international.

Magic and research

The true core of the magical-religious experience lies in the profound connection with the Spirits and the Gods present in the territory and the cultural tradition to which we are bound.

Researching ancient magical techniques and the spirituality of our ancestors is something I always have been very passionate about.

Combining respect and knowledge of the ancient traditions with the awareness of the profound changes that have come about, I dance in balance between past and present, between research and direct revelation.

Shamanism

The worldview and the techniques present in shamanism bring with them that immense gift that is the possibility of re-creating in first person the Sacred Net connecting us with the reality around us.

In this way we are able to gain an essentially organic approach, in which a direct relationship with Spirits and Divinities is fundamental, and ancient cults and practicies are not simply re-enacted, but co-created with Them…They are the ones concerned, after all!

Shamanism

Philosophy

We live in a world of spirits, that we often forget to see and inside us resonates a call that we don’t remember how to listen to, anymore. Awakening this awareness is one of the most important things for me: my task is not about walking down the path in your place, but about putting my experience (as an archaeology researcher, shamanic practitioner, artisan and Priestess) at your service; to guide and support you in this extraordinary journey.

This is the guiding principle of my work: be it about building bridges between the past and the present, thorugh the research of magical and shamanic practices, or infusing life and passion into the crafting of ritual tools, everything is meant to strengthen ties we have forgotten for far too long, and to rebuild this sacred net.
