Walking this path of creative self-discovery is never a one size fits all situation. It is Nectar’s pleasure to offer you a broad array of choices that include various ways to support you on the journey back home to yourself. One on One sessions are for getting your feet wet and testing the waters of what some of us here at Nectar offer. And because we’ve kept the prices in an affordable range, there is room to explore each option over time. Have a look and come back often – we will be adding even more ways to work with us soon!
“We are human beings, filled with dreams, curiosity, magic, joy and sadness. We possess a hungry curiosity and willingness to work in a deeply gentle way, as we follow our soul’s call to come home.
We believe in the healing power of creativity, writing, somatics, sensing, journey work and waking up to what is.
The work we offer asks you to show up as you are – with tears, laughter, resistance, joy, fear or anger. This willingness to show up helps you to discover the deep beauty that is alive in you at ALL times.
Call on our grounded presence to help cultivate your own self-love and compassion as we do the same for ourselves. Discover what moves, delights and challenges you. Allow the healing power of your wild divinity and ordinary sacred life to show you the path back home, to yourself.
Stephanie Gray – Process Arts Facilitator
Our time together will be about learning to listen deeply to ourselves and art-making in the present moment, as you cultivate ways to follow the thread of what engages and delights you in life. I will encourage you to feel instead of think and from this place; we’ll tap into your inner wisdom that knows exactly what serves you best. Alchemy occurs as we create together – writing, painting, scribbling and collage – in old discarded books or art journals. In time, your book will become a sacred and unique blueprint that leads you back home to your authentic self.
I believe art is something to be discovered and happens uniquely for each of us from the inside out. I believe creativity brings us unique and sacred gifts that help us to uncover our truest selves. We are more powerful than we imagine and rediscovering that power is what this work is about for me. No art experience is necessary, only a willing curiosity and deep desire to uncover the mystery of you.
*One on one process painting sessions are also available.
4-Week Plan ($80) 2 one hour studio sessions (In person or on Zoom) and 2 emails / ($100) 4 one hour studio sessions.

Denise Andes CRT, LPC Body-Centered Psychotherapist, Shamanic Teacher
I meet you where you are.
I am passionate about bringing the body into each session. Together, we will work toward the integration of how you block or experience tension in your body and how that relates to the blocking or the experience of conflict in your life. We will explore boundaries and grounding. I work extensively with developmental and shock/trauma issues and will support you in expressing and/or learning to contain emotions.
(I will give you homework. Almost always.)
As a thinker and someone who works with ‘the hard stuff’, I believe we can all find a place of self-acceptance and self-love. On that note, I have a playful spirit that shows up in sessions. It tends to keep things in the here and now. I grew up talking to trees, playing with horses, swimming with tadpoles, and adoring horned toads. As far back as I can remember I have believed nature is our wise and true teacher. I’ve been through my share of ‘the hard stuff’,
which lends a depth and compassion to my work.
I weave my shamanic practice into everything I teach…even if it’s not ‘named’, it is there. And, I gently welcome you home…to the exquisite medicine within…that is your true healer.
Session: $125. hr, includes 1 email follow-up.

Sarah Oblinger – Inner Trail Guide
Our work together is a process of deep exploration and acceptance of your personal journey to where your soul and spirit meet as one. Nothing that arises is dismissed; even the most challenging things carry answers and possibilities for self-acceptance, love, and compassion. You explore your inner world, without force, waking up to your true nature and cultivating a more mindful and creative approach to living. You learn to honor your own natural rhythm of living by meeting what is arising in you.
Using intuitive inquiry, conversation, emails, and art-making studio sessions (altered books, collage, process painting, writing) I offer you creative, somatic, and sensory nudges as you get lost and find yourself over and over again. I give you permission to be who you are, just as you are, warts and all, as you grow your capacity for self-acceptance and becoming fully human.
•No art experience is necessary, only a willingness to give caring and careful attention to what arises in you as we work together.
Monthly plan: $100-150 (sliding fee scale) – Includes 2 one-hour studio sessions (in person – studio in Northern New Mexico – or using Skype or Facetime) and 2 emails during the month. All sessions must be completed within a month.

Sarah Oblinger – Since Sarah was diagnosed with psoriasis forty years ago she has explored many ways to meet herself and life. The primary threads have been Neo-Reichian Therapy, Sensory Awareness, process painting, and shamanic journey work as ways to discover the ordinary sacred in her life, cultivate a grounded presence to meet her life with, and embrace her imperfect perfection. They are her mainstays of her inner explorations and inform the work she offers. Sarah has a down-to-earth sense of humor and a love of connecting the dots. Sarah currently offers sessions out of her home studio in northern New Mexico and online.
Lila Haris – DM Healing
All the answers are within you.
This is such a simple & profoundly true statement.
Yet to know this, to truly know and live this, it’s not so simple and easy is it?
To discover that the answers are within, you will have to travel back in time. Through the hidden places in you that tell you otherwise. The accumulated layers of fear, pain, and false beliefs about yourself. These layers show up as external symptoms that we struggle with in our daily lives.
For any issue to resolve and leave us it has to be fully owned, accepted, and understood. Every experience, no matter how painful, has a hidden wisdom within it.
The work then becomes how to excavate what has been buried and forgotten.
My Dalian Method (DM) sessions take you deep into your body and cellular memory. A place your mind on it’s own cannot reach. I give you full freedom and loving permission to step beyond the rules, the judgments, all the ideas about who you are and who you should be. I will gently guide you to meet your deepest truths and that is what will heal and transform you.
Then you will experience for yourself that yes, so much incredible wisdom does truly lie within you.
2.5 Hour Session: $198

Lila Haris – Lila spent 15 years on psychiatric medications for depression, anxiety, impulsiveness, and inability to concentrate.

With Mada’s guidance and tools Lila got off medication and began a deep journey into herself and the human condition. She now shares those tools with others. Lila offers healing sessions using the profoundly transformative Dalian Method.
Stefan Laeng-Gilliatt – Sensory Awareness / Mindfulness in Motion
In our one-on-one sessions I guide you in reestablishing a grounded presence from which your individuality can unfold, less entangled in the personal drama yet true to yourself and fully connected with the world you live in. The sessions unfold organically, finding their form through our connection by following what wants to come alive from moment to moment.
Sensory Awareness is a cleansing process for the senses, reconnecting us with the organism’s innate tendency to balance and heal. Together we rediscover the potential for fulfillment that springs from full presence in stillness and in motion, in everyday activities and encounters. Time and again this will bring us in touch with breathing, the pull of gravity and the support of the earth. These forces are in a constant interplay that keeps us alive. Habitual patterns and effort, however, often replace our ability to respond to a situation with natural ease, causing discomfort and fatigue. Becoming aware of these processes and gradually freeing them is at the heart of Sensory Awareness.
Session (In person or via Skype): $100 – Includes 1 one-hour-session and one email exchange or a 20 minute Skype follow-up. Other arrangements possible with multiple sessions.
