Nicole Haciba Burke has been working in the healing arts since 2006. She has trained in Japanese Medicine and Acupressure with Dr. Imetai Henderson of Source Medicine, completed an apprenticeship with Sierra Thayer in Native American Shamanic Healing, and has been deeply immersed in the Path of Pollen as taught by Kate Shela, Naomi Lewis and Simon Buxton at the Sacred Trust in the U.K.. She has also studied Red Lodge Medicine Ways with Ohki Siminé Forest.

In addition to formal training, Nicole’s dynamic approach to healing is also inspired by her diverse cultural background and experiences as an artist, designer, writer, organic vegetable farmer, beekeeper, and a world adventurer. Nicole has led Moonlodge and various ceremonies, worked on organic farms, studied permaculture, and worked with numerous beehives and beekeepers all over the world.

While much of Nicole’s work deals directly with healing the physical body, her emphasis is also on a spirit level because she understands that harmony of soul embodied is the gateway of health in balanced connection to all things. Nicole honors and nurtures the wilderness of the soul. She reminds her clients of their pure essence and how to follow joy towards living a more rich, interconnected life. Her work is guided by and deeply rooted in loving relationship with the earth, all of its elements and inhabitants.
