I believe everyone has within themselves a wellspring of wisdom that can be realized through ancestral connection, animist practices and working in the liminal spaces between.


The Land I Stand On

I would like to acknowledge the land that I live on as being originally Indigenous and that I am a guest here.

For the past 22 years I lived and raised my family on the stolen ancestral and traditional lands that were, and still are, the unceded territories of the Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh)  kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Stó:lō and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) territories, in so-called British Columbia. 

At the time of this writing I currently live on the ceded lands of the Lenape, Munsee and Mohican first people in what is now known as New Rochelle New York.

It has been and continues to be an honor to live on these beautiful lands.



My name is Nikiah {pronounced Nik-Eye-Ah}

I am a fourth generation settler currently living on the ceded lands of the Lenape, Munsee and Mohican first peoples. My ancestors came to Canada via Romania, Scotland, Ireland and England.

I first came to this work during some of my own hardest initiations and am deeply grateful for those whose guidance and  mentorship carried me and supported me through.

I have spent over two decades creating ceremonies for the birth, death, re-birth cycles that we as humans go through and this work is embedded deeply in my soul.

About 10 years ago after some of my hardest spiritual initiations knocked me down, my ancestors were there to support me and help me to understand who I am and what exactly I am here to do in this lifetime. This is why I am passionate about ancestral work and see it as some of the most crucial work we can do in our lifetimes, especially if we ourselves want to become good ancestors.

I would say that at my core I am a  traditional animist Spirit worker/Healer. I was originally initiated into northern European animist tradition, and my work is informed by the many teachings and teachers I have been fortunate to have guide me over the past two decades.

I have raised two children with my longtime husband/partner of 25 years and am now at the time of my life where my focus is able to be shared a little more on that community, both the global one and my immediate one.


 I offer self-guided courses, year-long group training, in depth apprenticeships and one-on-one, intuitive ancestral journey work. 

You can explore learning on your own, from your home, by taking my self-guided courses such as The Magic and Folklore of Trees, or if you are a leader perhaps Holders of Staff and Bone is calling…

Further to these courses you can deepen your experience with the Year-Long Sacred Path program, delving deeply into your own priestesshood with self-guided study combined with group ritual & ceremonial work. 

Get into working with your hands to craft a Red Drum, Honeybee Drum or Ancestral Rattle. Each of these maker courses provides you with a supply kit in the mail and comprehensive instructions to guide you in crafting sacred instruments. 

Want to go deeper? Join Nikiah for Spiritual Mentorship, or sign up for Ancestral Healing Sessions, or have her throw the Bones for you to clarify your soul’s path.

I am here to hold sacred space holding a safe and welcoming container for you as you dive into your own personal journey of reclamation and healing.

This is my soul work, and it is an honor to be able to offer it as I do. If you are ready to answer the call of your own wild soul connecting to the ancient wisdom of your ancestors, and the animist nature of the forest then you are in the right place.
