My work is driven by an understanding that the earth is currently in transition, birthing a new generation of healers, earth warriors, visionaries, artists, entrepreneurs and leaders. We are a collective seeking to make amends to our past, to better understand and care for our natural world, to actively and consciously work to be healthier people, and have more fulfilling relationships, careers, and communities.
What you see is the coalescence of my many passions, a quest towards bridging the natural world with the inner and outer workings of our everyday lives. I work with a variety of new paradigm leaders through retreats, classes and community events to provide opportunities to raise consciousness and promote community healing, as well as work one-on-one with individuals as they emerge into their innate power and purpose.
I hope my offerings serve to inspire your personal undertakings and to be a resource. You are more powerful than you realize. There is something in you that no one else can offer to this planet and I hope to help you tap into your specific calling, or to align you with others who might help to strengthen your path. Join me as we grow together, in every direction, forever.
About Drake Nyx:
I am a life-long learner, healer, traveler, educator, activist, artist and visionary. It has taken me many journeys, lessons and much personal development to be able to step into my purpose on this planet. After an initial spiritual awakening in 2008, I eagerly sought out diverse life experiences to develop myself as a leader for the new world I saw in my visions, a reality currently emerging from within the hearts, minds and spirits of those awakening all over the planet. My on-going work is focused on cultivating spaces that encourage self-actualization and self-authorship in the context of building healthy, collaborative and transformative community.
I have a B.A. in Social Sciences, Minor in Civic Leadership, and am currently working on my M.S. in Leadership for Sustainability Education at Portland State University. I am a master reiki practitioner, ordained minister and a trained group and ceremony facilitator. I have worked as an outdoor and experiential educator with youth, adults, animals and non-profits for the better part of a decade, internationally, as well as at home in the PNW. On top of this, I hold a permaculture design certificate, completed an intensive, year-long shamanic mentorship with JoBeth Eckerman, have taken many trainings on Non-Violent Communication, completed Street Yoga’s Trauma Informed Yoga Certification, and received formal education as a birth doula.
I serve as the Board Vice President and Co-Executive Director for a rad consciousness-shifting organization called Conscious Growth, and help manage Oasis of Change, an innovative collaborative community center in PDX. Follow the links to find out more about the work we do! I am also the Oregon Director of Compassion Camp. Find out more about this collaborative camp for adults here.
Join me as we create a more holistic, innovative and heart-centered world. As I’m always learning, I’ll try and provide helpful information and resources, but I also seek critical feedback, thoughts and ideas to grow and expand my knowledge base. Cheers!
