Naomi is a radical visionary, pioneer, writer, speaker and midwife for the global shift that is happening both within and on our planet (they go hand in hand).

Her background is vast and pieces together a rich tapestry of life experiences. Some messy, some graceful, they have all lead to greater self-wisdom and knowing, that can be invited in others in life enhancing ways. A journey that never ends, it only seems to get bigger and more provocative by the day.

Naomi stays fiercely committed to accelerated personal growth, knowing we are ALL the Creators of our own lives, and takes great ownership in the creation of her own! Her truth is not up for debate, it is simply an invitation for you to discover your own. Deeply tapped into and unapologetic in her rhythms and cycles, she has come to know and trust this in her own life, and as a metaphor for what is happening in the larger world.

She began her own journey home to herself through the paradigm altering WEL-Systems Institute® where she became a CODE Model Coach, a guide and catalyst for intense and intimate personal growth.

She is mother to two beautiful children who are parented and life-schooled in deeply intuitive, collaborative and self directed ways (aka: making it up as they go). She is a contributing author to Guardians of the Vision: Parenting for the Birthright of Potential as well as a contributor to Parenting Your Way

Her Soul is wild and free and her commitment in any partnership or collaboration is to her own expansive growth, bold truth and dynamic well being. period.

My Story

I had spent most of my life blindly following societies rules for living. You go to school, you get a job, you get married, you have kids, you get a house and you have it made, you have security. A grand illusion that had invisibly created a false sense of safety and a separation by always living in the future and creating from the past.

A recipe for conformity and the mediocrity of life that comes from the status quo. Within that box over the years I shook it up with vacations, dinners out, parties, renovations, restructuring businesses, kids extracurriculars and date nights…until the veneer began to crack. The life I carried inside was just too big for the ‘life’ I had meticulously structured around me…the one that was keeping me safe from myself!! My internal voice screamed…NOW WHAT!!??

Luckily my deep unrelenting restlessness jolted me out of my own internal slumber 8 years ago, awakening me to myself and the great potential that continues to remind me that I am not here to play small and more recently, within the confines of a status quo life. Now with a new place to stand inside, the reclaimed ‘not playing small’, is making it’s way into my outer world reminding me why I am here! BIG TIME!

At the heart of who I AM lives a pioneer, a radical, deeply fierce and compassionate liver of Life that marches to the beat of her own drum with other visionaries venturing into the great expansion of human consciousness to birth a very different world, built on internal safety of Self.

So what the heck am I doing stuck in the story about living that I told myself a long time ago, a story that seemed to blind all my creative choices and impulses, especially when I got married and had children! What happened to the adventurer that met the man she knew she would marry and yet still packed her car at 19 and traveled across the country to discover ‘what else’ might be in store. Sadly, what happened on the other side of the country was the notion of wild and free was no longer something society needed to warn me against…I did it to myself…I put on the caution brake and made my way back across the country to where I ‘came from’ to settle down.

With my comforting illusion leading the way my husband and I bought my family home on a mountaintop in Nova Scotia and have spent the last 11 years renovating, remodeling and making it our ‘own’. Raising our two children in the same walls where I was parented. The much more powerful metaphor is not what you see on the surface of my newly renovated home, it is the foundation that still represented the last threads of my history, my family story and me as the little girl that knew she was here to play big but chose normalcy through which to express!

The way I look at it is very few of us escape the status quo…we either conform or we rail against…blind to the fact that it does not live ‘out there’, it lives ‘in here’. The journey to reclaiming ourselves and finding a different place to stand inside ourselves is a rigorous one by times because we are left with owning everything that moves inside us as OURS. We have no one left to blame for our feelings and we hold the full responsibility for our choices as they design our life and they either come from a pattern of history or the present moment. Embodying this over the years has lead to a freedom of mind, body and spirit…my life is MINE to design and if it is no longer big enough…I redesign it accordingly.

This takes me into the present moment…a present moment that allows me to see the truth. The truth that I no longer want to own a home or maintain a property, the truth that I no longer feel deep attachment to my ‘stuff’, the truth that my husband is done in so many ways at his toxic work environment (he would have a great pension if he just stuck it out a few more years), a truth that my children’s potential is being managed, molded and modeled to live outside them at school, a truth that a LEAP is required not just for me but for our whole family! A LEAP into living moment by moment, breath by breath…not constantly preparing for the life we will live.

Rarely do we have the opportunity to enrich our lives with the presence of those for whom the experience of intimacy flows easily and effortlessly through their own lives. Naomi is just such a gift!With the patience to be willing to listen and the courage to be willing to hear; with the curiosity that invites discovery and the wisdom that grounds and makes our world safe, Naomi embodies the potential that we all carry and the great joy that comes from being willing to live it – fully, intensely and as a way of life – breathing into the moment of chaos and breathing out the next layer of her own, unfolding truth.As the creator of the expansive and life-altering WEL-Systems® body of knowledge, I have had the opportunity to engage with thousands over the last 20 years. During that time, I have seen and heard and lived through sometimes unimaginable moments of the lives of others, always choosing to stand in the magnificence of our imperfection and the intention to become the ‘more’ that I have always known all of us to be. In those two decades, I have encountered many who wanted to, some who chose to and only very few who easily became the living embodiment of this amazing process, in flow.Most of us will recognize the notion of ‘walking the walk’ rather than ‘talking the talk’. In my time of knowing Naomi, I have come to know her as The One in her own life who walks the talk… The One in her own life who does not just display for others the opportunities and potential, but who embraces it all fully, for herself and for those with whom she comes in contact.In a world that has forgotten the majesty of its original intent, Naomi remembers. She remembers who she is and, in so doing, can help you remember who you are. Her ease and grace with flowing into those much deeper, darker spaces within ourselves that we might find The Light of our Essential Being, is offered with strength and courage. It is also offered with the solid footing of one who has been there and back, and is willing to go again… with you.If you’re in Naomi’s world, you’ve chosen wisely and well.                            –Louise LeBrun, Founder of the WEL-Systems® Institute
