Hello, I am Nicole Hartley Bradford
Space Holder and Creator of
Next Culture Experiments
CLARITY. INSPIRATION. LOVE. TRANSFORMATION.
Acknowledgement of the Indigenous
I am a first generation settler based in the place known in Modern Culture as Canada, and a descendant of settlers who colonized the place known as South Africa.
I acknowledge that there were massive injuries enacted on Indigenous People the world over, and on the Earth, by colonizers, far more widely than I likely can know. I acknowledge also the magnitude of consequences still wrecking havoc for Indigenous lives, families, communities and land.
I am committed to playing my part in something entirely different happening.
If you are of Indigenous ancestry, I thank you for putting up with so much for so long. I am truly sorry.
WORK WITH ME
Conscious, responsible anger experiments
The life of your wildest dreams starts with your authority, your creativity and your clarity.
Your authority, your creativity and your clarity are informed and fuelled by YOUR ANGER.
Rage Club is where you get these things back, and build them.
The next 4 weeks series will happen when the necessity makes itself known!
Email me if you want to learn more about Rage Club.
Video replays of introductions to Rage Club viewable here:

your feelings are not a design flaw
Feelings are for handling things. Emotions are for healing things.
Free 30 minute Discovery calls are available to help determine what type of Conscious Feelings Work will serve you best.
Please email me to book a time.
use your Emotions for Healing, Transformation, Initiation
Emotional Healing Processes are not Cathartic. They are Cathectic.
This means that rather than using the Old Thoughtmap of Feelings and 'trying to get rid of those bad or negative feelings' (catharsis), we apply a New Thoughtmap of Feelings and consciously use the intelligence and energy of Feelings and Emotions for healings, initiations, and the evolution of Consciousness (cathexis).

Awakening the Village (since 2014)
Answering the Call
In urgent need of my own village after my marriage ended in 2011, I began inviting people to gather, explore and connect to consider the themes foundational to "the Village it takes". Countless talks, potlucks, panels, workshops, celebrations, circles, one on one calls and visits happened over the years. Awakening the Village is the umbrella under which I "do everything."

Awakening House Temporary Permaculture Ashram (2015-2020)
After much dreaming and discussion, I set up Awakening House in the fall of 2015 in Calgary, AB, Canada as a microcosmic experiment of The Village. Residents and visitors tasted and tested intentional living possibilities up until the project ended with a beautiful Death Ritual in the spring of 2020.
Vibe Pod Bottom Liner and Mentor
From 2015, I have been part of the two annual gatherings of ArcaTribe: Intention (5 days) and Symmetree (a weekend), and the revival of EnVision, our organizers retreat. My role as Vibe Pod bottom liner has been to apply space holding technology to support the well being of all involved, during and between gatherings.
The Hempshire 109 Project (2017)
It takes a microVillage to build a microHouse
It was an honour to be invited as a village weaver onto the team that won 4 out of 5 categories with this hempcrete and timber beauty, "The 109," at the first ever International Grow Calgary MicroHouse Building Competition. The team included some of western Canada's most notable natural building pioneers Dion Lefebvre, Christina Goodvin, Dor Lav, Melody Mossing, Brian Lavoie, Chad Gendall, Olivia Johnson, and Hemp experts Erin Lindley, Bonnie Mackay, and Carl Martel. Great Fun was had.

The Tent City Symposiums at the Kinney Earthship (2015, 2016)
near Vulcan, AB
Time spent at the Kinship, Alberta's first Earthship Biotechture-built Earthship inspired me to undertake a gift economy project with the remarkable poet, Ian Kinney. Glorious workshops, demos, herb and fossil walks, shared meals, games, drum circles and farm duties from egg collection to shepherding happened in the coulees.
Too many to list...but...

WHAT CLIENTS and COLLABORATORS SAY: more coming soon!
Nicole is a brave collaborator and nurturing community builder. I’ve had the privilege of working with her on a range of projects including work with Calgary on Purpose, TEDxCalgary and an immersive learning session for the Systemic Design Exchange in Edmonton. When Nicole is in a room conversations get braver, the thinking gets deeper, and every voice is valued. She is an intuitive experience designer and a skilled facilitator. It’s a privilege to watch Nicole sharply challenge the status quo in tough conversations. I can’t wait to work together with her again. – Kris Kelly-Frere (Senior Innovation Designer with Vivo For Healthier Generations)
