Hi! My name is Naomi Rose. I’m a Modern Minister, dynamic storyteller, experimental wild woman, and Entrepioneer. I’m a spicy, serious, and spirit-driven native New Yorker and world traveler recently transplanted to Santa Cruz.

I’ve had much cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary opportunity to study and apprentice with gifted teachers, mentors and healers. I’ve held different roles and perspectives within the personal growth and healing arts fields for well over a decade and have compiled, discerned and distilled much throughout that time.

I am fascinated by the way that mythology, art, spirituality, nature, culture and healing are interwoven, and pull from everything I’ve learned in these realms including creative writing, foreign languages, theatre, astrology, plant medicine, Maya healing, Inner Dance, Reiki, shamanism, embodied leadership, movement based rites of passage, sound healing, parts-work, world wisdom, and cross-cultural ways of prayer, and have formed my own unique expression of feminine guidance, rooted in embodied wholeness and the Beauty Way.

“Artistic ability, the capacity to heal, and the vision to see into the Other World are connected for indigenous people.” ~Malidoma Some

Additionally, I’m an ordained reverend, certified intuitive, and international retreat facilitator.

My work is broad and precise, fierce and gentle, mystical and practical. My approach is organic and un-orthodox. I incorporate metaphor, imagery, story and song, and integrate ancient and universal wisdom with intuitive, intellectual and somatic tools to harness deep level transformation. Mostly my practice is to listen deeply and follow guidance from Spirit every step of the way, even when this means sitting in a deep space of mystery and surrender.

I’m compelled to listen to the stories of others, to give blessings, to grapple with paradox, to praise frequently, grieve deeply, and sit with people at the intersection of grace and grit.

I’m passionate about creating custom ceremonies and officiating weddings, and do so frequently in Santa Cruz and all along the Central Coast of California.

I love working with people one-on-one and seeing them blossom and maximize opportunities for growth and change. It is my profound honor to help people navigate thresholds, transitions, dark nights of the soul, and other big life moments that are ripe with potency and possibility. I work with clients in a dynamic, intuitive and deeply personalized way, and offer 1, 3 and 6 month long coaching packages.

I also love taking people on amazing retreats in power spots where the land is particularly awake and alive.

I’ve worked with clients all over the world including the Philippines, India, Australia, Indonesia, Brazil, and the UK, and offer individual sessions and coaching packages in-person in Santa Cruz, CA and globally via phone, Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangout.

I give great thanks to my ancestors, guides and mentors, and know that all that I am is the result of their love, generosity and benevolent guidance.

If you feel a resonance, I encourage you to
