Dr. Nicole Gruel ~ Australia

Dr. Nicole Gruel is an Author, Doctor of Spiritual Health, and Cheerleader for Agents of Awesome, who descends from a long line of samurai on her grandma’s side. 700 years or so. The women in her family are fierce in spirit and deeply passionate about making the most of any life situation.

Dr. Nicole Gruel has a Ph.D. in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology. She’s a past Board Member of IANDS (International Association for Near-Death Studies), Co-Founder of IANDS Sharing Groups Online, Mentor for Life Coaches at ACISTE (American Centre for the Integration of Spiritually Transformative Experiences), an Advisory Board Member for Spiritual Awakenings International (SAI), and co-facilitates the Sydney chapter of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS).

Dr. Gruel inspires people to harness their spiritual and transformative experiences for life prosperity and joyful livelihood. Her books have been featured in leading wellbeing magazines and she’s been published in peer-reviewed academic journals.

She has had some pretty wild experiences that led her to this point. A near-death experience as a teenager, the early loss of several family members, years of backpacking around the world, meandering through countless spiritual paths, and a quest to understand why we’re really here. Eventually, she came to realize the greatest challenge and most interesting part of the whole journey is how to ground and fully embody this human life. Right here. Right now. Right in the messiness and craziness of this hectic world.
