Testimonials for Nancy Alder

“One of Nancy’s strengths is clarity and the ability to communicate in ways that made learning fun.  Also, she was very good at ensuring that all of us had plenty of chances to interact and participate.  The retreat was all that the previews led me to believe it would be.  My expectations were absolutely met.”

Shea Coleman – Tacoma, WA


“Nancy was wonderful.  She knew how to get the most out of our group and in turn give all of us the best experience. I definitely achieved my goals of finding new ways to practice my spirituality by connecting with nature.  I came away with many thought-provoking ideas.”

Debbie Mattison – Dundee, OR


“Nancy is a very warm and caring person who values authenticity in herself and others. She has a very inclusive teaching style and a wealth of knowledge that enable her to shift gears easily to meet the participants’ unique needs and desires during any given session. Her material is very well organized and she presents in such a way as to include any level of learner/seeker to benefit and look deeply at their own process. The Hero’s Journey workshop provided such a valuable way to look at life’s challenges as now I know that there is a predictable rhythm to “answering the (soul’s) call” and to not get to worried as the phase of “not knowing how” or “facing the dragons” show up.”

Sandy Berensen – Portland, OR


“I saw myself very small next to a hummingbird, petting it. And when I became it, I understood that all the flowers it visited were parts of me, and there were so many different kinds!  I’ve connected deeply with animals before and never thought of becoming one.  Nancy’s guided meditation  was a powerful experience.”

Kristyn Andrews – Austin, TX

“Nancy gives incredibly poignant subject matter and follows it wherever the group takes it.  I cannot express my gratitude to her for her skilled and intuitive meditation coaching.
