Pilgrimage Tour to Eastern Tibet With Julie Thorner Connects Women
August 10, 2018 Marilyn Ball
Liquid Spark Foundation founder Julie Thorner leads small groups of women through Eastern Tibet with a mission to connect with women on the other side of the world and learn a different way of life. She began the non-profit foundation to help provide education sponsorships to Tibetan young women to go to college, as well as fund projects at the nunnery they visit based on the needs and interests of the nuns. With the help of a few tour guides in Tibet, Julie designed a tour that includes home stays with village women and nuns as well as plenty of hiking and exploring the culturally rich region of Tibet.
