Eric Nies and Iona Nies work together as transformational physical, emotional, and spiritual facilitators, licensed CyberScan quantum cellular balancing practitioners, and are licensed Doctors of Pastoral Medicine. Eric and Iona are also writers and entrepreneurs, and are currently writing their first book together. Their goals are to facilitate healing, harmony and balance for the natural world and for all humans and living systems. Together they are intending to help shift the collective consciousness to light and love, and to give human beings access to their true selves and authentic power.
Iona and Eric met at a spiritual transformational retreat. They had separately been doing transformational work with themselves and others, and from the first day they met they immediately began to look deep into their fears, childhoods, and experiences—to understand who they are at the very essence of their souls. The foundation of their relationship is to honor each other with total honesty and authenticity and responsibility for their feelings. They look deeply and closely at their exchanges and feelings. Through this unbreakable and unconditional love they find the answers to help them step more fully into their power and their authentic selves. This process takes courage, patience, understanding, discipline, and an unwavering commitment to truth and honor. They believe that the future of relationships is total transparency and communication based on non-judgement and total acceptance and unconditional love.
Eric and Iona have personally gone through many challenges in their lives both separately and together as a couple. These experiences have helped them understand and see the truth in the challenges and experiences faced by others, and they are fearless about sharing their own experiences in order to help others face their own. In their work as transformational facilitators, Eric and Iona have helped other people release addictions, fears, blockages, pain, health challenges, and helped them find their true power and authenticity. Their approach is a blend of different teachings and modalities learned from spiritual and energy healers and shamans, and drawing on their own intuitive abilities and power to help others heal and transform. They are dedicated to shining light on the entire human being, and facilitating the courageous opening of the heart to help people step into their most fearless, vulnerable and authentic selves. They believe that power is vulnerable and exposed, and that strength comes from openness, truth, and transparency. Their approach connects mind, heart, body, spirit and soul, and connects circles of experiences with emotion and choice. They are dedicated to helping humans release all fears so that they can act out of love and light in the face of any and all challenges, tests, and experiences.

Eric’s desire for exploration and unmatched fearlessness have led him into many near-death experiences, and his unconquerable spirit and massive heart have shown that in any life experience there is always the choice to respond with love instead of fear. Eric has decades of training in natural foods, nutrition, alternative and holistic health, and through his work healing health issues and degenerative diseases and experimenting with his own health, he has a deep understanding of how to apply the healing power of pure, whole, natural foods. Through Eric’s decades of training with spiritual masters, shamans and healers, and spiritual self-exploration remembering who he is, he has developed an ability to help people find inner peace, connect them to source, clear stuck emotions and fears, and find their authentic power. Eric has worked as a life, health, nutrition and wellness facilitator, a spiritual guide, and an addiction rehabilitation facilitator for over a decade.
