My name’s Tracie Nichols...
I’m a rebel crone, mentor, poet and alchemical aromatherapist.
I’m all about creating spaces where 50-ish+ sensitive, introverted womxn can unfurl their voices, be who they choose to be and do what they choose to do. Because, ohmygoddess if there ever was a time when our perspective is needed, it’s now.
It all started when…
Years ago, my favorite aunt handed me a tiny amber bottle and I breathed in the intoxicating sunlight and honey fragrance of Melissa essential oil. The scent was so alive it just shattered my narrow-lensed perspective. A dozen years and dozens of alternative wellness and spiritual explorations later I landed in a non-traditional graduate program (studying Human and Organizational Transformation) that cracked me wide again and made me a passionate advocate for womxn’s voices.
A bunch more certifications (I do love being a student!) plus a decade in private practice and here I am bringing together every iota of those 30 years of experience for you.
Because your quiet, sensitive crone-womxn voice is essential. Essential.
I am really skilled at..
guiding you through the wild and unmapped borderlands of deep life or business transitions so you can get where you want to go without quitting or getting lost in the weeds (too often)
helping you unsilence yourself from patriarchy and ageism (and other “isms”) so you can say the words or set the boundary or create the thing…
creating and holding transformative spaces so we can do all this stuff in nourishing, laughter and respect-filled circles of other womxn who are wrestling the same beasties.
co-creating with the plant world communities of changemaking essential oils. They are one of the best allies for navigating transformation. (That’s why they often play a part in workshops and in mentoring work I do.)
spending time with the ecosystem where I live. Listening. Remembering my place in this Place. Being nourished here.
my wooly-bearded husband and partner of so many years
Highly sensitive, introverted, multipotentialed and very much a crone who is both rebellious and rising. Also mother of 3 grown children, companion to Strider the Determined, a ginger tabby cat who adopted us. I’ll let you figure out why I call him “The Determined”.
Why does this matter to you? I’m glad you asked..
See, I believe we all have something essential to say / do / contribute. Introverts. HSP’s. Crones. All of us.
But we’re dragging around this godawful mess of imposed expectations and stereotypes about how we’re supposed to look and act. And then there’s the whole “don’t trust yourself or other womxn” message hammered into us from birth.
Seriously. No wonder we’re all so tired. No wonder so many of us feel trapped. Alone. Invisible. Sometimes hopeless or bitter or really, really pissed-off.
The deck really is stacked against us.
AND… there are ways we can choose to walk away from the game.
Coming together. Witnessing each other. Sharing our stories. Shredding the invisibility cloak. That’s the way to disentangle ourselves from the smothering myths and stereotypes we’re fed by this culture. The way to unearth reserves of courage and resilience and unfurl our winds-of-change voices.
