Hello! My name is Holli Nicknair...
I come from a long lineage of Sacred Space holders, Reverend Leopald Nicknair, Reverend Bernard Nicknair and my great Aunts; Sisters Eva and Emelda, not to mention David Dermerchant on my Mom's side of the family. I am honored to carry the torch forward and continue to walk the paths created by my ancestors, while also creating new paths of my own.
My career has been dedicated to Connecting... anything and everything! With more than 20 years experience planning and coordinating events, designing sacred spaces and facilitating ceremonies and transformational experiences (Coaching Sessions, Women's Circles, Retreats, Weddings, Memorials, Trainings, Rites of Passage, Significant Birthday and Anniversary Celebrations) I am a Master at creating powerful containers that allow Grace to flow through.
I am Certified to Officiate in Oregon through Grace Ministries. In 2004, I trained in Spiritual Direction and was Certified as a Professional Spiritual Life Coach by the Academy for Coach Training. I received my BA in Communication in 1997 from the University of Southern Maine.
I have worked with hundreds of Brides and Grooms, Change Agents and Awakening Souls on this Evolutionary Journey. As well as organizations that are dedicated to supporting people on their Spiritual Path, some are listed below...
First Unitarian Church of Portland & Eliot Center
Portland Community College
Mount Hood Community College
Unitarian Universalist Rowe Camp and Conference Center
Mindful Meltdown Ecstatic Dance
Peoples Regional Opportunity Program/Statewide Coordinator of the Maine Network of Peer Programs
I nourish my Spirit in so many ways...being in nature with my Golden Retriever, Wanda; practicing conscious movement Ecstatic Dance...20 years and counting; Bahkti Yoga: Devotional Chanting; Sitting in Circle with Women and creating Magical Altars... are just a few ways I return to Center.
I look forward to walking with you amidst your journey and Connecting you with the Divine Within!
