In his book, Choosing to Evolve,Gaby says "The culture is stuck and we need to evolve. We are often emotionally manipulated and distracted by those who seek our attention. We can only be free when we learn how to manage our emotions mindfully." Nicole completed the year long program with Gaby deepening her understanding of imagery and habit. (My leap Year) in 2018.
Nicole has discovered that her own path to happiness has to do with the unwinding of family, personal and social conditioning, she is now living and loving her humanness.
Wellness encompasses the body, mind and spirit. When we surround ourselves with conscious compassionate thinkers and creatives we can change our habituated reality. Nicole is grateful for the support of her teachers, seeking out the guidance of masters in their field and studying under them for a time has transformed her reality model. At the heart of change is grace, self-inquiry and love.
Transformation begins with a sense of grounded presence, when we are centered in the heart, we perceive and love in the world from a place of clarity and bliss.
Nicole's teaching at its core is living a life of compassion. Freedom in movement.
Wellness is acceptance, wellness is a gentle surrender to living reality. When we can surrender we can see with clarity the beauty in the opposites of existence.
When we choose to accept this part of reality, life reveals a simple joy, a truth, an inner knowing that we are exactly right where we are meant to be right in this very precious moment.
