    Divyám'shu Konrad,

    Devalaya Community,

    Yogi, father, Naturopath,

    Germany

     

    Nicole lived with me in our small community in Devalaya, Southern Germany for July 2021. I am still sad that she had to leave.

     

    Her Emotional Healing Processes and Possibility Coaching are priceless. She has full access to the tools of Possibility Management and her intensive life-experience as a mother helps her create even in difficult situations. Her integrity and reliability are remarkable.

     

    I hope she will return here. If You have any questions, contact me.

    Nicole didn't ask me to write this.


    Nicole navigated yet another healing process for me 2 days ago.

    This is not your typical modern culture psycho treatment or some tribal shamanic thing. This is a next-culture healing process. I recommend finding out for yourself what this means.

    Sometimes I think I know what the "problem" is that has me stuck, frozen, despaired, but it takes a skillful trainer like Nicole to open doors and hold space, so I can get clarity on what is it about, and heal it.

    Thank you, Nicole

    To work with Nicole is to fly into Archiarchy. More becomes possible from the ordinary. For me Nicole is the queen of noticing, present with love and clarity. As a graduted mother I see and appreciate her wisdom of motherhood and it is ecstasy to learn and thrive with her.

    For me Money Club worked because of your strength, clarity and love. There was high awareness from you. You kept the space clean. I sensed no Gremlin had a chance to hook you. You gave big important challenges. Wow, it was my chance to take the challenge and fulfill the challenge. Your explanation of the distinction between needing and wanting changed my life. I have been digging and digging through what I was conditioned to want and finally I come to what I really want. Thank you for that. I thank you for your work, everything you are doing, I have high respect for you as a Magician.

    Nicole is a brave collaborator and nurturing community builder.

     

    I’ve had the privilege of working with her on a range of projects including many months with Calgary on Purpose, as speakers at TEDxCalgary: Engage, and in 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.

    SerVivo Community,

    Conscious Movement Facilitator, father, Portugal

     

    Nicole brought radical clarity to our community SerVivo.

     

    Old patterns had crept into our community, well-hidden from our eyes. There was some hidden resentment. Here and there I had given up.

     

    Nicole masterfully created spaces to go deeper. She has a quality that I've never yet seen before to this extent: a crystal-clear spaceholder who can navigate all the waves in the space and to be vulnerable and visible as human being with feelings. She does not hide behind the authority of her role. She goes first. With an open heart. And she creates real connections. On the same level as everyone else.

     

    Nicole has my trust as a guide into and through the darkest corners of my underworld. The distinctions from Possibility Management that she offers are life-changing. If you want your community and your self to go further towards what you bring into the world with teamwork, clarity and love, then I highly recommend Nicole as coach and spaceholder.

    from Dara, in Germany, about Emotional Healing Processes:

     

    You held space for me, where I could move from my wish and desire for true, intimate and authentic relationships towards becoming the source of that.

     

    Not waiting anymore until the "right" people come into my life or until I find myself in that spaces but to become that space of radical intimacy.

     

     

     

     

    from Emma, in Canada, a Patron on Patreon:

     

    If I had the chance to hang with Nicole once a month, and chat and buy her a meal - I would love to do it. And so I do, mentally anyway, by being a patron of hers on Patreon.

    I get to see what she is up to out in the world: facing life and making waves.

     

     

    From an edgeworker in Berlin:

    I can't believe how deep I went (in an Emotional Healing Process), how much I processed with you holding space. Wow! I had no idea I had that in me. Now I am lighter, bigger, sleeping better, relating better with everyone around me. So much more is possible that did not seem possible at all before. I CAN HEAL! Thank you!

     

     

    From a NZ edge worker:

    What you are up to is astonishing to me. You bring so much wisdom from your lived experiences, as a mother, as a person who has been experimenting on the edge for so long and in so many ways, falling down and getting back up, over and over and over. How you can be so loving is beyond me, and a real testament to what you must have done, inner work, to extract yourself from victim stories. I've never met anyone like you. You are a magical force of nature.

    My Parents

    Rowan and Carol

    My parents left South Africa after learning police where on their trail for teaching Black and Coloured people against the laws of Apartheid. After settling in Canada they regularly took me and my two brothers camping and travelling, providing rich learning experiences. My dad, Rowan, died in 1993. My mum, Carol returned to South Africa for a year to empower BIPOC of South African, and stayed for 21. She is now back in Canada.

    Voracious Reading

    From babyhood I devoured books

    From the age of 5-19, I lived a 5 minute walk from a library and made many a trip across the field with bags of books.

    Atypical Education, Religion and Theatre

    Montessori, Private Catholic School for an Anglican kid, Parents on Staff, Theatre

    Some of my earliest memories are of Christ Church, Cranbrook and my Montessori preschool and kindergarten years. In grade 8 I went to public school, and had my only two years in a school without a parent on staff. Most of my highschool years were given to dance and drama, I performed in 7 plays in 4 years, including two awarded theatre festival performances.

    Global Adventure

    Now that's an education

    My first international trip occurred when I was one year old. Another at age 5, then a six month "World Trip" at 12, many steps of which I retraced as an 18 year old on another 6 month adventure in 1988. In May of 2021, I officially became nomadic.
