There is medicine & poison in EVERY-thing.
Nissa, your circles are just the juicy juice that had been missing from my life. I have been looking for this since I was born. Through your medicine, you show us our magic and we deepen our understanding of/access to our own medicine and it ripples out... And out…
Nissa is the real deal. She’s real. She’s raw. She’s beautiful. She takes me places with her words that I otherwise may never have gone. She is one of the bravest women I know, daring to go where many of us won’t. She shows up again and again as her wild and wonderful self, inviting us all to do the same. Her bone readings are full of magic and wisdom. Her sacred ways are truly a gift. Grounded in Earth Medicine. Steeped in Magic. Holy in their offering. Say yes. It’s powerful. Real. Grounding. Magical.
Bone Readings have brought me great clarity, healing, and most of all confidence to step deeper into my Truth as an artist and woman. I am so in love with Nissa and the work she fosters with the Lady of the Bones. After my very first reading I signed up to make these offerings a monthly commitment and I have never been disappointed yet — sometimes surprised or even challenged — but never disappointed. Thank you Nissa for shining your amazing light and for the beautiful way you listen to the bones.
INTEGRITY. It’s a non-negotiable in my world for a space holder. Nissa will deliver.
It meant so much to me to be held, to have strength and comfort given to me. Right now I am feeling so depleted, like there isn’t enough of me to go around. I needed the medicine I was given today.
Participating in Nissa’s online courses has been life changing. The course content and supportive, online space she holds creates a whimsical and gritty form of magic with a healthy dose of cheeky wickedness. Her work speaks to my subconscious, drawing out my own magic and truth.
Thank you Nissa for my bone reading that has taken me deep into myself. A journey, as it should be, but I didn’t expect this and so had to stop and restart my recording once I got myself in a more sacred, receptive space. The pieces have layers. As I listened over three days with the full moon, it’s so much more than a ‘reading’. There’s deep healing happening with a definite soul-depth confirmation of what we can glimpse for ourselves. I also experience an initiation or jump-start into what I couldn’t grasp just yet too - sort of like a torch held out so one can see our wider circle for a bit and get a decent nibble and taste of what is trickling in for us. Absorbing the layers is happening over time. Happy to have found you Nissa, carrying your bone bundle. I’ll be heeding the call from the Lady of the Bones and be in touch for more. xo
Working with Nissa is gift. You will be held, you will be challenged, you will be broken open, you will be encouraged and supported toward wholeness. She urges you toward growth by gently challenging your self-limiting schemas, and holds you in the sacred, loving space of a woman who knows, who’s done the work, and who continues to do it every day.
I loved the honesty of Nissa’s content and videos. There’s an alchemy that happens when a leader is willing to be open, as she is. It makes it okay for *us* to do so, too. And in this world of surface connections, that honest sharing is deeply, deeply healing. Generally speaking, I’d like to say to anyone considering working with Nissa: TAKE THIS. JUST GO SIGN UP. TRUST ME., because I get inarticulate about how awesome the experience is.
When I first started working with Nissa, I felt a little star-struck, having been a fan of hers for some time. Her laid-back style put me at ease immediately, even as her badass “take no shit” vibe earned my deep respect. She gave me just the right mix of structure to keep me accountable and freedom to find my own way. Nissa is the kind of teacher that doesn’t feel threatened when her students rise up into their own sovereignty. She celebrates it. It is rare to find a leader who is capable of holding space for others while simultaneously taking up her own space in the circle, and Nissa makes it look easy (even when I know it’s not!) I couldn’t ask for a better, more trustworthy guide into my inner wilderness.
Nissa is a master huntress. She has a way of hunting out the parts of you that are ready to be transformed, evolved, healed. Once we located those parts she uses her tools, which she has many, to clear, clean and make medicine from whatever poison I was dealing with.
Nissa is medicine. The way she does everything is medicine. The first time I went through the journey of making a rattle with her, I had all the lessons I asked for presented to me by the hide I was working. Nissa was right there to hold my hand as I panicked and fought the lessons I’d asked to receive. The finished rattle is beautiful, she is grounding, yet slightly delicate. I work with this rattle almost daily, she’s become my favorite tool for space clearings. I’m back to make another rattle. This rattle will be designed to travel, she has a completely different energy. Nissa is deeply connected to her intuition and the energy of Mama Earth. She hunts with reverence, she grieves each kill. She sings to each spirit as she releases them from this life, and she is the midwife for each hide to be rebirthed as sacred sound. Nissa signs her in emails ‘in wholeness’, with complete authenticity. She’s free-range, wild, and will teach you what ‘sacred sass’ is all about.
There was a hole, deep within that I knew was there but didn’t know how to access or what to fill it with. I spent years trying to figure that out; searching for ways to “fix” myself, to clean up the broken mess that was my life which only led me down a path of what seemed like more failures and disappointments. One day, out of nowhere, I felt an incredible urge to make a drum, I didn’t know why or how or where to turn but it was incredibly strong and I immediately went online to look for a class. That weekend, I found myself on the floor in Nissa’s basement, with a group of women who, years later, I still feel the deepest heart connections to. Nissa didn’t just teach me how to make a drum. She shined a light into that deep hole within me and showed me that there was nothing to fix, that my brokenness was beautiful and that I didn’t need to find an answer, that *I* was the answer. Since then, I have been held in her heart, her home, her words, her retreats, and her thoughts, and my life is literally changed from the inside out. Nissa and the tribe of Wild Women who find themselves called to her circles have become trusted teachers, confidantes, allies and friends. My life is inexorably brighter, fuller, and more complete for having had the opportunity to work with her. I can’t express my depth of gratitude, love and admiration enough. If you are feeling the nudge to work with Nissa, don’t hesitate. That nudge is an invitation; your work has already begun.
