Nico Rease Founder/Director/Mentor of Wild Wisdom Ways
Nico is a proud mother who is grateful and inspired about her soulful work with mothers and daughters. She is able to provide various opportunities for children to have unique experiences in the transitions of coming of age. For the children along with their mothers/others she provides a playful yet meaningful space for them to bond even deeper through: ceremonies, sacred and gratitude practices, earth skills, all the while honoring self, each other and the earth. She supports mothers through her Sacred Motherhood retreats.
She weaves in a variety of valuable perspectives from her Masters in Consciousness, eco-therapist skills, her deep nature work from Regenerative Design and Nature Connection, along with her Waldorf Kindergarten teaching, Reiki Master, her past local community jobs as a nanny, and her credentialed teacher experiences.
Nico can be found swimming in the fresh, hot springs or salt waters, hiking up a steep mountain, playing with children at the local parks, singing her heart out, gathering with other sisters in ceremony, hugging the trees, also organizing another incredible Moon Sisters gathering through her program Wild Wisdom.
