Grieving as a spiritual practice builds confidence with Neelam Nanvani
Dec 6th, 2021 by theconfidenthealer
Where do you find the courage and strength to continue running your business after your spouse and business partner suddenly die?
This week’s guest, Neelam Nanvani will tell you, the only out of grief, is through. It’s been challenging, to say the very least and, yet Neelam has found a deeper connection to the Divine within. She had to continue a new women's mentorship program she was teaching when her husband suddenly fell ill and then died within a week.
Through her grief, she was able to be a channel in her mentorship program and taught new concepts and a deeper understanding to the Divine Feminine.
For her, Shamanism is not just another healing modality, it is a Way of Life, a way from which anything and everything springs, births, and evolves. Neelam is also a highly evolved facilitator in the areas of Shadow work, trans-generational wounds and Inner Child work. She also teaches about Dream work as practiced in indigenous Shamanic societies and how we can use the gift of Dreams to heal. She calls dreams, “Oracles of the Night.” Evolving into BEing a voice for the Divine Feminine and The Empowered Woman.
