"Great session yesterday." Donna Gardner 6/2022
"What a lovely class! I’m so grateful for you, Nancy, and for our little circle of regulars, my Zoom Yoga Tribe. I’ve noticed twice in a row now, coming from a difficult day and ending up with a big smile on my face by the end of class. What a Gift, this time alone in a quiet house, just for me to get into my body and feelings, with nothing else to focus on. Today I had a realization that my almost two decades of resistance to my husband’s angry venting might have roots in how my own anger as a tiny child likely was received by my emotion-resistant mom. It occurred to me that we can only give what we’ve received—that essential reflection of unconditional love that All of our feelings are ok.💖" Renge 6/2022
"This was great; I'm so glad I signed up. Thank you so much for an incredible enneagram course. It was intense, as promised, and contained a book's worth of valuable information from various teachers. I learned so much about the history, the evolution, the practical applications, and the many facets of this ancient wisdom. The most valuable part was zoom time (group sessions), with you and the other brilliant and beautiful souls in the course. The sharing, exercises, your excellent facilitation and the meditations were all so powerful. I am grateful to you for offering this course and doing it on a donation basis so all can participate - Tracy Maxwell, book coach and ghost writer - Create Consciosly
"I have grown SO much in this over the last 5 years and the enneagram has been a very helpful tool" - Sharon
"I finished reading your course workbook and was impressed with its content and structure. I was amazed at how you linked the Enneagram content to spirituality and the chakras. I liked how you provided a lot of space for your students to write down their thoughts. I do not know what you charge for this course, but it is probably worth" - Justin Tomasino, Enneagram author and teacher (previewed the workbook)
"I want to thank you so much for turning me on to the Enneagram It has been immensely helpful" - student
"I attended the Connecting You with Your Self Empowered Living Intensive course. I have known Nancy for several years, as a friend and mentor of the Enneagram. It was only recently, though, in the course and using the workbook that Nancy created, based on her extensive Enneagram knowledge, that I was able to grasp my understanding of my type and embrace my unique strengths (and challenges). The course helped me improve the connection I have with myself. Looking at my personality habits has helped improve all my relationships and the way I communicate with my loved ones. I highly recommend the course for your own self-development" - Michele
"What an extraordinary teacher you are; it was a special class. It is really like a college-level course that you have developed" - Sue
"I really enjoyed this class……..both what we learned about the enneagram and the way the material was delivered. I feel like I have a more complete and deeper understanding of the
whole Enneagram, the significant history, the underlying meaning of the arrows, the 3 forms of intelligence…just to mention a few. This was the most comprehensive enneagram workshop I have ever participated in. I appreciated the all of the rich materials we had access too that covered all of the topics in depth and provided a nice library for continued learning. Thank you for the small group offering………this felt very safe and really kept me engaged and intrigued…I enjoy learning about other types in a small group where the sharing helps illuminate the differences in our types."
"My own journey growing with the Enneagram has just soared with this course. I am so much more aware now. I can be the observer more often. My learning journey has expanded to growing my wings and reaching out to my integration and disintegration points…….this was an amazing new piece for me."
"I appreciated this expansive view (different and new) of personal growth with the enneagram system. I have already started to use it in some interpersonal conflicts and challenges I had" - Roxanne 4/21
"Thank you, Nancy, the course was terrific! I most admire your tenacity to stay on the path of growth. You'rea great teacher, mentor, and inspiration" - Nora 4/2021
"I have learned more than I ever thought possible! I leave this course with the resources move forward, feeling empowered."
"Nancy, the course was arranged in such an easy, well-written, & smooth-flowing manner that it had been truly a blessing. I loved the small breakout groups; I especially loved the large group too; that we were in - a total of 6."
"I also love the holistic way this was taught and not just one pathway. I also love the fact that we dived deeply into all the numbers realizing that we are all part of each and every number, even though one number is more dominant than the rest." Judy 4/21
"The course is really helping me to open up, and I feel like I am coming into my own" Cynthia
"I loved your course.The things I loved most about it: Your passion for the materials you shared. The clear focus each week so we could come preparedd. The depth you made possible by including the recordings. Your personal additions to the system, such as the chakra connected mediation and the choices map. Your willingness to be with each one of us where we were. Your offering of further resources so we can continue our study.
The breadth of the materials. That we visited Maitri, Almaas, Riso and Hudson, and
more, plus the recorded teachers. Plus your own materials." Sam 11/20

"The course was so much FUN!!" - Sophie
"I appreciate your approach that empowers the reader to explore and examine other resources and find those that resonate. You acknowledge other authors and offer the reader many avenues to investigate. Your teachings on the history and evolvement of the Enneagram was more thorough than I have seen.You encourage the reader to think." David Gray - 2/20
"Your passion for this work clearly shines through your positive energy, which is contagious! I read your book (Empowere " Living) on my flight home and it'sd it's exactly what I was looking for as an intermediate-level student. You covered a lot of ground and did so precisely with a combination of heart, body, and mind! I am so impressed by your course workbook and grateful that you offered a copy to me. Where can I order additional copies for my friends and family?" Jason, Carrboro, NC
"I think the very best part of your workbook is the Choices Map and how we can use the Enneagram to catch ourselves in the act, become aware of our pattern by using the 4-Friends, and then make a conscious choice of how we want to beIt's. It's a brilliant use of t" e Enneagram, and you have such an original way of expressing how it works. You are freeing us from b"lieving we are just our type, and you show how we can use the Enneagram to evolve and grow. Which is what the Enneagram is all "bout." Beth Kuper, Lafayette, CO"
"Am very much appreciating your knowledge, time, and interest in the subject (Enneagram). I think I did see more positiveness in myself after our time together! Looking forward to one's working with you "more." ~ Charlotte, 7.2018
"Brilliant and astonishing are two words that come to mind after experiencing Empowered Living with the Enneagram course. Nancy is not only a loving and gifted teacher; she facilitates a profound experience for embodying the core Enneagram teachings. Her course includes new insights, tools, and awareness for life-long transformation."
"I will be sending all my clients and friends to Nancy for her classes, workshops, and Meetups in confidence that they will experience a master teacher."
"I left her course with a deep appreciation for the energetic shift in my life and consciousness."
"Ask Nancy about her Choices Map for conscious integration…and then drop into a journey you will never be the same after."

"What a beautiful hour and a half together this morning—thank you so much, Nancy, et al. 🙏🏼💖🙏🏼 There was a softness and gentleness today that was palpable. That, coupled with quiet Gregorian Chants playing in the background here, enabled me to recognize that self-protectiveness and perfectionism have strongly influenced the trajectory of my life. I was able to connect with sadness and tears over that fact. I now more deeply understand the Why of the regrets I feel because of actions taken or not taken. And this enables me to choose differently in the future. I’m so grateful for the conscious and healing space Nancy holds for us all. 🕊💜🕊 - Renge 4/2022

"You are a beautiful light that shines so brightly…" ~ Prisca 1/2022
"I had a beautiful experience today in Nancy Markow's 9 am Sunday zoom yoga class. I woke up this morning not feeling quite together but hadn't been able before class to put my finger on what was going on. And what felt like conflict with an online friend resulted in an obsessing and negative mindset that I brought onto the mat. Partway through the class, Nancy spoke of the literal and figurative symbology of our two feet/legs, representing (possibly) disparate paths or realities or consciousnesses, joining at our pelvis, and (re)uniting in our heart. (Forgive me for not remembering your exact words—hope I got the gist accurately.) I realized how very fragile and new my Law of Attraction practice still is, and how quickly and habitually I resort to an ego-protective, heart-closed consciousness. And then I felt moved to tears by the realization of what was lacking this morning for me (my heart connection!) and that it could shift. I'm so grateful for the gentle and loving opportunity to come home to my more authentic self, Nancy." - Renge 11/2021

It is easy to see she loves doing yoga and we flow with each class to feel both peaceful and relaxed even after a challenging workout.

"I so value your outlook, and you help me see a different point of view by showing it through a point of view that is similar to my own. I often find that we run away from those we see ourselves in because they shed light on our shadows. You showed me a version of my higher self that I had within me. I am so glad that I found you and your group." ~ Abby 1/2022

Thank you for being curious about me and why I do what I do.
Personal awakening has been my focus for most of my life. I found having community best supported my curiosities and explorations. I hosted my first Intentional Living Circle in my home in 2006.
Spirit guided me to create an umbrella to add more offerings, and I called it "Connecting You with Your Self." I began sharing what I had learned about the Enneagram in 2008 and 2013. I added yoga classes and mini-retreats.
In 2020, I retired from a career path that included positions in both allopathic and alternative healthcare. My partner and husband, Paul and I, have health, family, and the comforts of life. I feel fortunate to be blessed and able to share most events without a fee, and any fee-based offerings always include a scholarship option. As I give, I have found that I also receive generous donations which cover my costs, honor my time, and keep CYWY going.
You will find I have a creative approach influenced by my intentionally diverse 20+ years of studies and experiences. What I share is what I have personally explored, pondered, and experienced. I am interested in learning about you and your journey. To learn from your lens.
I believe the honoring of diversity is how we all find a way to live with grace and bring peace to the world.
It is my passion to support us all in...
Remembering who we are, our wholeness, and our potential. Flushing out beliefs, habits, and patterns that self-sabotage.
Learning new tools and being reminded of ones we already learned. Then use them to align with purpose and passion supported by a community of diverse perspectives.

"Nancy's class is a deep dive into the waters of meditation, with a gentle float up to the top - feeling refreshed and invigorated." Judi - June 2017 Experiential Mediations
"Hi Nancy here is another review here is another review. I'm seeing the energetic imprint continue to increase and build on itself each time.....As a 7-timer (with #8 already RSVP'd), I have found the Experimental Meditations to be incredible and powerful; with each one building upon the next - doubling and tripling. After the first experience, it took weeks to feel the difference but after the 6th it took only days to notice the supportive positive shifting. It was like the changes arrived out of the blue. After the 7th experience, I felt strong Chakra balancing and transformational energies. I am so curious as to what will come forth next." Diane Floerchinger/Denver/June 2017
"This experiential event (Experiential Meditations) creates an energetic imprint that stays with me. I leave the studio feeling happy and peaceful, yet it is in the weeks that follow that I see the type of incredible positive change I’ve come to expect. This time, it was only 5 days before I saw my expressed desire for a “jump start” begin to unfold from every direction in my life! I’ve already enrolled for the next one." Diane Floerchinger/Denver/April 2017
"I scheduled an Enneagram Couples Session with Nancy for me and my husband. Nancy really took the time to be sure my husband had clarity about his Enneagram Type and what this meant for him since he was less familiar with the Enneagram than me. During the session, Nancy shared the common values of our two Types and the details about operating in the *best* behaviors of our Types but also how we shift into *low* behaviors when under stress. Nancy graciously outlined a large-picture dynamic of conflict that was familiar to me and my husband in a point of view from which we had never looked. Once we could identify each other'striggers, we had something to watch for so that we don't enter the conflict pattern. Nancy explained to my husband that some of his (well-intentioned) behaviors can be perceived as confrontational to me. I hadn't recognized this myself, but it created an aha moment as to why I shut down at times. Since our Couples Session, my husband has had a much higher awareness of behaviors that he chooses that push me into *low* responses. Our session ended a pattern of conflict that felt so awful for a long time." Jen Hunt, artist, president of Icing Studios 303.204.2866
"We are so excited for this class (Empowered Living with the Enneagram) starting 2/24/17. I'm so blessed for the meditation (Experiential Meditations) today thank you⭐️ [🌟] [💫]" Emelie Brotherton and Angela York, Experiential Meditations, Intenders, and Enneagram Course participants
"After the restorative yoga session (Experiential Meditations) I feel an improvement in my muscles and flexibility, I want more! I wanted to tell you, you are an awesome Teacher/Facilitator. Yesterday (1/15/17) was wonderful." A. Daphne Barry, Experiential Meditations, and Intenders participant
"Can you imagine? I would have gone on trying to fit into being a five if I hadn't gotten into your class.
What a difference identifying my real type will make for me as I move forward." Martha Powers Lepinski, Empowered Living with the Enneagram Student
G. H., set forth an intention of clarity before attending a shorter version of the Experiential Meditations. He sent this message to me after the event. "Thanks. When I left I thought to myself I didn't really notice any change. But as I drove home. A problem that I have been dealing with. I realized a whole other angle that I hadn't considered before. So "clarity" came through after all."
"Thanks, Nancy (and Melissa for assisting). It was a wonderfully nurturing experience!" Pat Serafin, Experiential Meditations - repeat participant
"Thanks Nancy for a wonderful session. I gained so much insight into who I am today because of who I was before and how I was parented by two loving parents who didn’t know how to be with me as a Preacher’s Kid 8. I look forward to listening to the 5 information and gain more insights." Sue Shiff (Empowered Living with the Enneagram support session)
"You are a wonderful teacher and your work is so applicable immediately in life." Kelly Graham
"Nancy - thank you for the wonderful class. Your knowledge and passion for the Enneagram allowed me to be honest and gentle with myself. Your class allowed me to understand that I have options in my relationships with my husband and family instead of repeating old harmful patterns. Thank you for helping me continue on my path with a purpose and tools that allow me to make healthy choices that increase the joy and happiness we all seek in life." - Margo - Empowered Living with the Enneagram Course student
"I liked it. It was well written and the homework parts informative. 5 was the only number to come up for me. Good to know the things I have been working on are in the right direction. I really enjoyed it."
Empowered Living with The Enneagram Course workbook "independent" student - Pat
"Hi, Nancy - You sent me a link to a YouTube video, " How to practice the Law of Attraction"Mike Dooley. It was actually one of the things that changed my life back then. I remember you telling me to not just want to be a nurse again, but to see what that meant for my life, what did I really want my life to be, not just my career. Lastly, I started to live in gratitude. I woke every morning and thanked God for 5 things in my life. It became much easier to be grateful as time went on. You were so instrumental in helping me get through one of the worse periods in my life. I just want to Thank you so much [😘]" Intenders Circle participant - Wendy - RN
"I am now having dreams that seem to be intuitive dreams, haven't had them in so many years"!
Cindi Holt Reid - Experiential Meditation participant
"Just finished our final lesson on Empowered Living with the Enneagram with Nancy Markow.... Wow. What an amazing experience that was... Learning about our personality types and why we react to life the way we do was honestly fascinating! It's crazy how things seem to happen in my life at exactly the time that I need them the most. What a beautiful mess my journey in life is... And I finally feel like I can make sense of it all. Thanks ladies for being so crucial in my journey. Nothin but love for you!" - Dez
"I like the updates on Enneagram that I'm learning from you."
Charly Ellis - Enneagram Discussions participant
"Nancy Markow has an absolute passion for helping others understand and use self-discovery methods to create positive change. Forming those methods into a virtual “toolbox;” I’ve been able to navigate, and eventually calm, the complex onslaught of life issues I’ve encountered on my soul journey. Through her fun Enneagram Class, I learned how to call out my excuses of blame, victimization, and defense (imagine BVD’s binding up to your neck!) and choose a grounding direction instead. Experiential Meditation proved to be such a profound catalyst for continuing metamorphosis that I will be attending numerous times. I believe her heart-centered classes, workshops, and Meetups, will help anyone transform their life if they are ready to do the personal “work” to integrate the lessons. Nancy’s work merits 10 stars. I'll have to settle for 5 stars." Diane Floerchinger shared on Yelp
"This event (Experiential Meditations) proved to be such a profound catalyst for positive change that I am about to attend a 2nd time. Although I didn't feel much immediately, little did I know how deep the questions and postures would travel into my subconscious over the following month. Almost imperceptibly, a gentle breeze began to blow FEELINGS of rejection into my life; changing to a strong wind that even worked its way into my dreams. As I remembered, viewed, and felt all the rejection I’d stuffed down from childhood on, including rejecting myself, I realized that major theme was my past and no longer represented who I am. It was surfacing to be transformed. (You just have to hear the event questions to understand where THAT comes from!) A new theme is unfolding in its place; acceptance and appreciation have begun to blow in from all corners of my world, leaving me excited and curious about what is next!

"You did a wonderful job at the presentation (Yoga-Enneagram-Chakra Meditation), I found you very easy to follow, and your presence was very warm and inviting to everyone. Nice!" Alissa Norton - Freelance Video Producer 3/4/16
"Thank you again for our chat. So much to think about, but with a different perspective than before my arrival."
"Thanks for helping me get SO clear on my type....anyone would be so lucky to have you teach them. I love your work! You are an AMAZING Enneagram teacher with such a WEALTH of insight and experience." Deb Durkee Blum www.inspire4life.com 1/2/16
"Your presentations are as professional and heart-centered as any I have seen online." Deborah Houk 1/2/16
Thank you forsharingthrough your interview with Pace Smith. I just listened to it for the 2nd time. I love your passion for sharing in a tangible way. One of my favorite parts was within the explanation of the benefits of reaching for higher aspects of the arms and legs. Kylie shared "if I whine long enough someone will rescue me," and I chuckled in self-recognition. I also love the BVD's tool, with your reminder to use it to "hang out with the 4 friends that uplift you." I especially enjoyed your reunion story (again) and how you personally illustrate how to use the high aspects of the 4 friends effectively; and the magical outcome. I had forgotten about the humorous and helpful bathroom trick and appreciated the reminder to add it to my personal toolbox! I participated in the Enneagram course last year and continue using the tools I learned; I experienced a 90-degree shift in my life in less than a year.”
Diane Floerchinger 8/24/15
“I'm so excited, I just had to share with you. This class was life-changing for me in so many ways. What a wonderful practice! I'm looking forward to exploring all its nooks and crannies, in the true 5 that I am. This morning I noticed as I was reaching for my 6 energetically, I was reaching into the low side to get to the high side. So I decided to apply my biofeedback system to clearing the energetics of that - so I could reach into the high side! As I was running the Calm Child frequency, I set the intention that I was installing the high qualities of 6 for myself. I claimed loyalty to myself, trust in myself, confidence in myself.... The results were amazing! I feel happy! Love it!” Catherine Morgan 8/3/15
"The family gathering was outstanding. I attribute a lot of that to the Enneagram sessions with you and the group in the 3rd class!! It helped me so much to see myself reacting, talk about it and make a choice to approach it differently. That made all the difference in the world to me and everyone else. Thank you!" Carole Adams 8/1/15
“I have to tell you that once I left your home yesterday, I felt this feeling of relief. . . No, not that the session was over! But that I was a 4 and it just explained so much of my life. It also explains the push/pull that I've felt at various times in my life. My mother used to call me her independent/dependant daughter, there was the push/pull. So much of my life has been spent on filling the gaps in my life. These are gaps like knowing how to do things or how to be successful at them, or earning a degree or more money. I have focused on my gaps by using the critical gaze of the 1 and I have been misdirected. It has allowed me to stay the course for far too long. I can still use the 1, but focus on the perfection, instead :) So, instead of beating my head against the wall in Higher Education, I will continue to pursue my rewarding (and fun) career in real estate. I still can't get over the relief that I feel.” Cindy Cabrales 7/9/15
"Great handouts! I have spent a couple of hours with them this morning and have some deeper insights into myself as a result. Carol Adams, Professional Facilitator - Life Coach - Mentor - Trainer 6/29/15
"Thank you so much for supporting me. I feel like our meeting has already made a difference in me. You are one of my many blessings." Gaye Bass 6/24/15
"I am using the Enneagram so much now. It has become a big part of my everyday life. Thank you so very much for introducing it to me" Madison Uptain (14 years old at the time of the course) 5/3/15
“I was lucky enough to see the introduction to this class (Empowered Living with the Enneagram) and the "map" and it blew me away! In the short intro, the "map" gave me tools to actually USE the Enneagram in my life. Over more than 20 years I've learned a lot about the different types, I know a lot of facts, and those facts have helped me to accept diversity in people. But this new "map" approach molds those facts into a useful tool for my own personal growth and greater understanding, and will further help me in working with others on their growth path. It's a win-win!! Nancy Markow is alive and engaged (she's a "2"), very gentle and very knowledgeable about the Enneagram and how to take us to the next step. She offers a unique and empowering way to learn the Enneagram system called Empowered Living with the Enneagram. It is a series of three in-depth learning sessions. Participation is limited to 4-6 students, encouraging an intimate, valuable & personal experience. Students not only learn the system but leave applying it to real-life situations. Classes begin by reviewing the systems history, symbolism and basics. Participants are then guided to realize their unique core expression and have an understanding of its supportive types. By way of shared personal reflections, a unique type map is explored and navigated. Drives for behaviors are exposed revealing ways to break self-sabotaging patterns.

“You did a supremely wonderful job of introducing our group to the Enneagram. We discovered this pinnacle priceless tool for self-evolution, integration, unfoldment, and fulfillment of life for all. Your masterful awareness and empowerment allowed for a deeper understanding and ability to be able to continue to learn and use it forever more. My deepest appreciation and love goes out to you for the humble, selfless, awe-inspiring, loving and exemplary being that you are. Thanks so much, Nancy, you're amazing and You Rock! Paul Glover, www.BandOfLife.com 2/25/15
"I am going to be telling a lot of people about these classes (Enneagram)." "I couldn't wait to let you know that I have realized huge realizations since I left your wonderful class today. Some are about me directly; others about close friends and family. If more people realized how revealing your Enneagram class is and that it can be the key to the LOCK in their life, you'd have standing room only."
Diane Floerchinger, www.holdingthedooropen.net 2/12/15
"Nancy, I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying the classes (Enneagram)...AND how much I appreciate you being so prepared and ready for your students. You are a great teacher, making things very clear for us to understand. Also, I appreciate you starting and stopping on time. Thank you."

“That was an awesome class on Saturday and I learned a lot about all types. It's (the Enneagram) truly an amazing system to understand personality, soul, and ego. I liked your unique style of teaching it and especially appreciated the positive focus. I was taken aback when at the beginning of class (another student) said she liked her type. I realized how I focused on the negative aspects of my type. I saw my type as a curse. By the time I left the class, 9's rocked!!!” Mary 9/22/14

Nancy B. 11/3/12
"I really connected with your "style" of checking in with my Chakras while we were talking. I am excited about utilizing the tools you recommended and appreciate the authentic place you come from and deliver the message in a down to earth way." "Your session felt very similar in nature to an Intuitive Counselor I went to for about a year. She didn't have the added bonus of the Chakra work but it was a space that I could go to and have a conversation about things with a neutral party that was invested in my highest purpose, well-being, and success. She would often help me see myself and situations in a different light so that I could approach them in a different way - just like our conversation last night did for me on several points." Gretchen 10/13/12
"I so enjoyed my session with you. I can't tell you the shifts that happened even physically from our session. Even those imperfect words with the perfect meaning behind them move energy! There were so many things I excitedly came away with for myself, for my family, for my work, for life...and understanding how to accept my critical eye/perfectionism, love and accept it and not turn it against myself. I wish I could share with you how many places your session positively impacted my last two days! :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Also, thank you for these interesting places to dive deeper. I loved the beginning of our session as well. I'm so grateful for our time together and look forward to taking your class." Kelly 8/5/12
"Thanks for helping me with my six-ness (not sickness). I am seeing where "trying" to control what I am afraid of has played a huge part in my life. I am ready to meet my fear of not having enough money head on, once more - this time in a different way. Not to conquer it with force but to say, I have simply outgrown it - like a kid who outgrows a pacifier." Fran Menley 5/12/12
"THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! Specifically to you, but also to God and my whole universe! YIPPEE!!! " Lisha 10/11/11

Nancy! I just wanted to say how nice it was to have met you last week. I really enjoyed the reading and visiting with you. Thanks for your advice and guidance. You really helped me tremendously. Hope to see you again. Take care and have a great day! Alicia 7/3/11
"Thanks for your help; this whole process would have been much more difficult without you.” Craig Johnson 3/3/09
"Nancy is a gift and has a gift - she helps me cut through my mental static and listen to the voices that are inside of me. And when I am stuck, she'll help discern what is going on inter-dimensionally and acts like a guide to where my Truth resides. You know the saying - we are spiritual beings having a human experience? She helps me understand what is going on with my spiritual self while saying it in a way my human self gets."
Kelly Hobbs 3/3/09
"I regularly refer clients to Nancy because I can trust her psychic, healing, and counseling abilities. She has done her own inner work and continues to do so--it shows! She easily and accurately reads a person's energy field/chakras and helps them understand what's going on in their lives. And the great thing is that Nancy is well versed in how to shift problematic energy by using a variety of techniques she has learned in the classes and programs she has taken. I highly recommend her if you are seeking insights, healing, and positive change. Warm regards." Karen Fox, Aspen Program 2/9/09
I have known Nancy for over twenty-seven years and can attest to her remarkably positive spirit and willingness to help break through the niggling emotional and psychological problems that face us day to day. She's a dear friend and a wonderful person. If you find her in your midst you can be blessed by her presence. Nancy's friend for life.”
Ned Netterville 12/11/09
"I met Nancy shortly after moving to Colorado 13 years ago. Though we have never worked together our paths have crossed enough times that I recognize and appreciate Nancy's passion for spiritual growth and empowerment. I see her as someone with high integrity and a desire for positive, uplifting action in all areas of her life. She's one of those people who make me smile when I hear her name." Ashi, Grace your Space Productions 12/11/09
"Nancy, You could have blown me over with a feather! I’dseenyou work in your groups, and you said you did ‘heart readings,’ but I ‘thought’ it was all head stuff… I couldn’t pick up anything more. So when you started reading me, and doing a major healing at the same time, and I COULD FEEL it -- well, like I said, you could have blown me over with a feather!!!! You are totally impressive, lady!” Lisha 10/6/09
The following are comments, shared from the students I taught as a staff member at the Aspen Program for clairvoyant development.
“I really enjoyed your Chakra I & II class yesterday. I was amazed that you do so much parallel to what my sister Susan and I do, but have approached it from another method completely.

I look forward to learning and experiencing more in this field, and perhaps our paths will cross again. Thanks again."
"You were great and you are a natural."
"I found your beginner class to be really fascinating! I learned so much, I still have conversations with people. And I understand my husband a little better now. I'm seeing my ego in everything I do, and was so glad to hear you say that we don't have to kill it, just ask it to move out of the way. That's exactly how I think too! Thanks again for your wonderful class. I will look forward to the next."
