Nina Palmieri M.S, B.S. was raised Catholic in a traditional Italian family where she was baptized and confirmed in her hometown of Waterbury, CT. She grew up with love, shelter and the traditional teachings on how to honor family and community.
As a child she spent a lot of time in nature by herself and together with her family, from being in the back yard woods where she grew up, to exploring many state and national parks. During most summer vacations, her family would go on extended road and camping trips in nature. By her early 20’s she had visited most U.S. National Parks.
This had a big influence in her life as she recognized early on that her mission was to care for Mother Nature and by using power spots on the Earth, she could help people come back to their true essence and help reconnect and realign them to the cycles of Nature. Subsequently at an early age she felt the inner calling toward Native American Spirituality. She began studying in her early years of college with a Mi’kmaq medicine woman who held regular sweat lodges and participated in the Sundance ceremonies.
These early on encounters encouraged her to seek out many other great healers and shamans on the path who helped satiate this interconnectedness with all of creation in the stillness and newfound presence with Mother Nature and the cycles of creation.
As a freshly inspired college graduate from the East Coast, at age 23 she followed a deep call to move to the Southwest, Sedona, Arizona. Her quest for Native American Spirituality, Shamanism, Earth-based religions and higher teachings only grew in intensity. Her love for the Earth and plants was equally met with countless opportunities to learn and grow from them and the sacred experiences as many teachers showed up along the path.
