We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole Cooper and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nicole, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” -Neale Donald Walsch
Risk is the foundation and start line of bee humble wellness and the continued drive and passion for this beautiful community. I used to view risk in a much different light. I spent many years stuck in the same place working the same customer service job because it paid the bills and was comfortable. I was scared to take a chance and reach for my passion because I was fearful of failing. It is when I took a good hard look at myself internally and realized that I was standing in my own way. That all of this fear I was accumulating wasn’t benefiting and only leaving me full of regret. I knew that in order to connect to my passion I needed to disconnect from my fears. I took my first risk by stepping away from my job and stepping into my passion by signing up for yoga teacher training. My path of wellness has since grown from student to teacher, practitioner, and business owner. Now when risks cross my path whether it be investing in marketing, creating a new service or workshop, or collaborating with other businesses my answer is always yes. I step into risk openly and willingly because I know that my intention of risk is always guiding me towards my passion of helping so many others on their healing journey.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Health and Wellness
My journey to wellness has been a personal journey. I got diagnosed with breast cancer in my mid twenties. I underwent reconstruction surgery and ended up getting a very serious infection in my chest. After spending months in and out of the hospital and recovering I started to notice the emotional and physical toll of everything I went through. I started my journey of healing by finding a yoga studio and spoke with the studio owner to learn more about their offerings. The studio owner invited me to a sound bath and thought it would be beneficial during my time healing. I had no idea what a sound bath was but decided to be open minded and try something new. Later that evening I attended a group sound bath session and let’s just say it was love at first vibration! As I was enjoying the blissful sounds and vibrations of the instruments, I realized I wasn’t accepting towards the transformation I went through with my breast cancer. As soon as I opened myself up to acceptance, I felt the emotional baggage and physical pain I was carrying being lifted. I continued attending sound bath sessions and also started taking Yoga. Yoga allowed me to appreciate and see that my body is so much more beautiful and powerful then just physical appearance. As I was going through a personal change I was also conflicted with my professional life. I was a dental assistant and treatment coordinator for many years and loved the people I worked with as well as caring for the patients, but I felt unfulfilled. I decided to do some research to see if there was something else to include with my yoga and sound sessions. I soon discovered reiki and scheduled with a reiki practitioner. My first reiki session was incredible. The session showed me that I felt unfulfilled in my current job because it wasn’t my passion. So I quit my job and signed up for yoga teacher training and became a certified yoga teacher. I taught at multiple studios across the valley. While i was teaching I continued my education and went to school for sound therapy as well as becoming a certified Usui Reiki Master.
After teaching across the valley for a few years, and seeing people privately I wanted to create a home base and community for everyone to come and just bee. My personal journey led to opening Bee Humble Wellness. I now have the fulfilling pleasure of working with people privately meeting them at their level of healing whether it be reiki, sound, and/or yoga. I enjoy hosting workshops and events creating a peaceful experience with sound bath, yoga, reiki, and other wonderful offerings creating a blissful community experience.
My intention is to hold space and create a calming, relaxing, and healing experience for all of my humble clients. I feel blessed to have received the healing gifts of reiki, sound healing, and yoga. It is my passion to share these beautiful gifts with my humble community. I hopes that these gifts provide the same healing experience that I have received on my personal journey.
Bee Humble Wellness is here for you to connect to the humble space within. Inviting you to connect to your internal healer to make the energetic and internal shift you are seeking. No matter how heavy life can bee the humble light is always within you.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take my friend to Old town Scottsdale to do the Thursday evening night walk. This event is hosted every Thursday evening and it’s so fun to walk around and view local artwork. Afterwards we would go to Valley Ho and have a cocktail at ZuZu. I recently stayed there with my mother for a stay-cation and it was amazing! The staff was super friendly and it’s a great place to lounge by the pool. The next day I would take them to the Desert Botanical Gardens. Every time we have visitors we take them there it’s so therapeutic and relaxing to walk through.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
