Nancy Nechama Karp.  Healing Artist ~ Yogini ~ Sound Alchemist ~ Circle Facilitator

Thank you for checking me out! 

Nancy Nechama Karp is dedicated to be in service helping others transform pain, develop coping skills, and nurture well-being.  She helps those ready to dive deep into past emotional trauma and harvest those experiences for power and wisdom.  She also helps those who are interested in enjoying a greater capacity for being more brilliant than they already are.

Practicing daily self-Reiki and self-care rituals for personal wellbeing she wakes up every day grateful to be alive. It wasn't always that way. From a very young age Nancy was in an environment that fed a growing low self-esteem compounded by an undiagnosed congenital hearing impairment and sensitivity to the suffering animals and natural world that ultimately manifested over the years as chronic clinical depression.

Consciously working to heal her relationship with her mother, who is now her beloved, cherished, and best friend, she began on a healing path in early 2000 and began remembering and learning how to cultivate a beautiful life. She has certifications in Reiki, Gong Therapy, Vocal Sound Healing, and Yoga, as well as in Integrative Therapy as taught by the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program combining restorative yoga,  essential oil aromatherapy, contemplative care, and Reiki. And she offers sound bath meditations specializing in gongs.

Based in New York City, Nancy Nechama provides private and semi-private sessions in her home office. Among her offerings have been Gong Sound Baths at the Floating Lotus Spa in midtown Manhattan, ringing the sacred sound of the gong for special events such as memorial services, meditations, Goddess On The Go, and fundraising benefits for notable organizations such as The Garrison Institute, and Tibet House. She began practicing Reiki in 2005 providing over 300 hours of Reiki and Integrative Therapy to patients and caregivers in clinical settings such as Beth Israel Hospital.

Nancy Nechama is an experienced Reiki Circle and Women’s Ways ™Circle facilitator and has provided on-call private spiritual counseling and Reiki sessions to clients of the Integral Yoga Institute-Spa. She began teaching yoga at September Space NY/Wold Cares 9/11 Community Center in 2006 and provided Reiki and auricular therapy in community clinics and for the Mayan people in Guatemala in 2010-2011. An animal lover, she gives Animal Reiki treatments for pets.  

Nancy Nechama invites students and clients ready to engage in deeper personal work to schedule a consultation to initiate a multi-session journey in her East Village New York Urban Sacred Space. Customized sessions may include gongs, shamanic drum, rattles, Himalayan singing bowls, Acutonic® Tuning Forks, Vocal Sound Healing, Essential Oil Therapy, yoga, Intuitive guidance, and wellness coaching.

Nancy Nechama will travel to those requesting her services and for her signature Good Night Gong™ sound bath–a luxurious journey into deep, restorative sleep that may help diminish insomnia, reset the circadian rhythm for healthy sleep cycles, enrich dream-time, and provide increased revitalization upon waking the next morning.

She, who through her courage, service, and sacrifice, offers Nechama to The Mother and all the Earth’s children.

Nancy Nechama Karp has completed teacher training certifications in Womb Yoga/Well Woman Yoga, Yoga for Children, Restorative and Therapeutic Yoga, and Kundalini Yoga.

During her Reiki training, Nechama gained a deeper appreciation of training her physical body to be a healthy and strong house for the sacred current running through her and to better be of service to others. Exploring a variety of yoga styles in search of a personal practice that could be done every day at home that supports spiritual evolution she found what is referred to as the Tibetan Rites - a practice that synthesizes all of the senses (except taste,) and motor-faculties in a moving meditation.

Sharing the practice of the Tibetan Rites with friends and family, a friend encouraged her to pursue a teaching path and the yoga training path that called to her was Kundalini Yoga. She made a commitment to practice purely Kundalini Yoga for the duration of the training in 2008. The Tibetan Rites are a component of her morning routine and she guides students and clients in a variety of yoga styles depending on what they need.
