“Nic speaks from the depths of his heart, sharing the profound and ancient message of non-duality in a simple, human, and very down-to-earth way. He doesn’t just lecture about Oneness; through his work in mental health he has been ‘putting theory into practise’ for many years now. With incredible patience, Nic meets with all kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds who are often in profound distress, and brings deep listening and loving presence, which I believe are the foundations of true healing.”Jeff Foster, Spiritual teacher and author
“I discovered Nic through his brilliant non-duality podcast. The podcast has been a genuine source of help and support (in what seemed to be a confusing time for me) and I eventually felt the call to arrange weekly zoom sessions with Nic. I’m so glad I did. Nic has this wonderful ability of holding a space which allows anything that arises to be held within it. It feels like a total stopping, a loving stillness. I would even refer to it as a non-event as words can’t adequately describe it. He is like a point of clarity, whose loving presence gently reminds me that clarity is always here. He will focus attention on seemingly insignificant comments or statements and show me the pearls hidden within. It’s a beautiful process. Sometimes we sit in the stillness, saying nothing. It is healing. When words or sensations do eventually arise and are looked at, there is a definite sense that they are being transmuted in that space and for some time after. Through Nic’s guidance I feel I have a much better discernment of what to notice and work with in daily living and I cannot thank him enough for this. I feel like I have been drifting for a long time and now there is definitely wind in my sails. I cannot recommend Nic highly enough to those that feel they have lost some direction on their journey and would like a gentle reorienting to what’s here and is always now.”D.F.
I first got in touch with Nic about a year ago to discuss the emotional upheaval after the end of a romantic relationship, as well as to touch base on where I was “spiritually”.
Nic provided a space which immediately felt safe and secure. His openness, frankness and extraordinary listening skills mean that I’ve been able to talk absolutely freely. Nic’s innate talent, and practised skill, have enabled me to delve into and explore not only current difficulties and past traumas but relate both to my limited view of myself and the world in which I live.
Over time, our sessions have naturally drifted into a much wider scope, where philosophical attitudes and outlooks could be discussed with a rare level of freedom, playfulness and interest. At the same time as accepting and helping to bring out my own attitudes to the concepts relating to yoga and Advaita (or oneness and non-duality), Nic has also challenged me when I needed it and helped to investigate deeply my own personal tendencies and patterns of thinking; finding greater understanding and acceptance of my own true nature…my real Self.
As someone who has been on a fairly intense “spiritual journey”, the support and help Nic has given me have been indispensable. Like many of us, for what felt like a long time, I had been struggling and striving towards a seemingly indefinable and unreachable goal. Thanks to the discussions with Nic, I’ve been able to see things from a different perspective, find balance, and see that I am the very goal I was trying so desperately to reach.
Not only is there no goal…there’s no reason to search for it. It’s all there is.D.J.
“There’s someone that I go to frequently who just holds space for me. He holds a bigger space for me than I can for myself sometimes. He’s genius, and he’s brilliant. Every conversation I’ve had with Nic Higham has expanded me. I feel more free and more open. I feel more grounded and more here. And it’s so nice to be taken beyond what I know. Nic says so many different things that wake me up. He’s not only a therapist, but he works in the world of nonduality – the understanding that there’s no such thing as duality; there’s no me and the other. I appreciate you, man.”Kyle Cease – best-selling author and speaker, comedian and actor
“Working with Nic has been one if the most transformational experiences of my life. His approach is much different than traditional therapy in that it supported me to experience myself more expansively rather that developing a better or more winning idea about myself. Highly recommend if you want support in how to live the day to day stuff while abiding in the self.”
‘I came to know of you thru your podcast… and was refreshed by the simple clarity of understanding expressed in your discussions… your podcasts have already provided a stepping stone to my meditation on and in the source which is a remarkable gift in itself… Thank you again and I look forward to hearing more from you on your podcast.”
“The sessions were so helpful and supportive. I found the non dual trios a really useful tool for reframing my experiences and seeing that where I believed there to be a concrete objective reality, there was so much more to see. I really appreciated the attention you paid to the information I’d shared with you which allowed you to ask really insightful questions that helped me to reflect in an openhearted way on my past and the way it is held in the present. I found the meditations in our last two sessions particularly powerful and impactful in a very immediate sense. They felt very intuitive and attuned to my experience in the moment. There was a good balance of describing the physical sensations in the present and exploring the labels and stories attached to them. They really helped to orient me towards wholeness and that seemed to permeate my experience for the rest of the day and beyond.”S.M.
“Your book has touched me deeply. I read it 3 times. I live this “I Am” and resonated with how you articulated it in such detail and depth…. The truth as you describe it embraces manifestation of the human conditioning, which I find refreshing that it’s not being bypassed.”
“I’ve worked closely with Nic Higham for several years and have read his website posts about awakening with great interest and resonance. Working with Nic so closely over the years, I can assure you that his experience is direct.”Scott Kiloby, nonduality teacher
“You made a huge impact on my last year. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all our time together. Your help has been invaluable and I will be forever grateful.”SL
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for our sessions. I really feel like I’ve met the best match possible to talk to and I really like how you respond to what I’m saying and also feel so glad that someone actually understands me. I felt seen, understood, I felt like I can actually get the help I need and I’m really grateful. “
“I found you through your amazing podcast and have especially resonated with connecting with raw sensation at the very point of existence….now. I’ve been getting a lot out of listening to your podcast, they’re truly amazing! I feel myself loosening up and being more in the flow.
I really appreciate that you’re having conversations about non duality, it feels very accessible to me. I’m going to start sharing these with my daughter. Thank you”
“I feel I have finally landed in a space where I can feel completely open, vulnerable and safe. Nic holds space with utmost sensitivity for my deepest traumas and subconscious beliefs, to help me transcend and find its way home to an open & empty awareness where it no longer serves any agenda. Thank you, Nic for your helping me help myself.”YJ
“I can’t emphasize enough what a profound effect your podcast had on me. It’s not just the highly articulate and precise conversation you manage to have, over and over again, but the vibe of it, the sense of just how remarkable this unnameable, unknowable, utterly extraordinary thing is that’s going on all around us, and through us, and is us. That vibe, or feeling, or sense of wonder communicates so much more than words, and is in stark contrast to the Rupert Spira podcasts which are very very clear but very very dry. They provoke thought. Yours provoke feeling…which I find takes me right into the heart of this mystery. Please keep up your work… listening to you on the other side of the world, you are having a huge impact.”
“Nic Higham has been a god send. From where I was at the start of my journey to where I am now is just amazing how far I have come. I feel comfortable talking to Nic and he helped me realise a lot of things. I needed help for a long time and I can honestly say Nic has saved me. I cannot wait to continue this journey and growth.”JK
“I’ve started having sessions with Nic Higham less than two months ago and I already feel the good impact that it is having on my life, especially on my spiritual path. Nic offers and shares an accepting and loving space in which emotions, thoughts and sensations are free to flow, unravelling layers upon layers of conditioning, beliefs and deeply ingrained patterns. His openness and his first-hand experience in the non-duality field as well as in psychology permit him to wisely guide you in that space of open and curious awareness that you already are, always respecting your pace and your level of understanding. The human experience is not negated or bypassed, on the contrary, it is observed with deep respect and curiosity and regarded as the sacred and vibrating manifestation of life that it is. From my experience with him, I can say that even if you already practise some form of self-enquiry his guidance can really help in going deeper, precisely toward the knots of suffering or emotional discomfort that more have the need to be held by our loving awareness. I warmly recommend Nic Higham to everyone who wants to explore some aspects of their life from the standpoint of non-dual wisdom as well as to everyone who wants to go deeper into this wonderful exploration.”MP
“I have a deep interest in non-duality, I wanted help in dealing with the emotional baggage that prevents us from experiencing the benefits of a spiritual path, that the intellectual understanding is not enough, we have to experience and hence be able to apply the theory in our day to day life. Nic Higham has perfectly balanced the addressing of these emotional blocks and also included the non-dual perspective through discussions to help unfold the journey of self-discovery and self-love, which is what we are all here to discover. He has a good understanding of non-duality and along with his experience in mental health and qualifications is able to provide an effective support system for anyone embarking on this type of journey.”AL
“When I first began my sessions with Nic Higham, I did not know what to expect, but I was desperately seeking a healing method that would go beyond a simple band-aid. Within 2 sessions I recognised that Nic is insightful, thoughtful and compassionate, and has a wide repertoire of techniques that helped me look into myself, visualise and strengthen my own ability to heal myself. That is real progress. This is not a canned approach by any means – I feel his method will go beyond healing and help with finding true inner peace and stability.”PS
“Nic is an extremely clear non-duality teacher but also a great therapist and he combines the two perfectly, helping one find Truth and freedom in even the most painful or mundane everyday problems.”PD
“I have found enormous benefits from my time talking with you, I am not nearly so anxious and I’m rediscovering a warm fuzzy feeling for life again. I can’t thank you enough for being exactly what I needed, your patience, kindness, warmth and wisdom have been invaluable to me. Thank you so much again.”LM
“I’ve been working with Nic regularly for almost a year now focusing on the areas of childhood traumas understanding the reasoning behind everyday triggers and living life as the most true and authentic version of myself possible. For me he has been a big hit. I’ve encountered multiple breakthrough moments and for sure I am a way different person to the guy that walked into his therapy space on the first day. Nic’s wisdom and understanding shines through often and he has a knack for saying the right thing just at the right moment to help gently guide you onto a better path.”MR
