"Bec is an incredible Soul Coach, who has inspired me to awaken to deeper aspects of my Soul. Within her sessions, she is deeply committed to lovingly, 'shining a light', on areas of my life that contributed to a sense of disharmony. Every session by Bec has been guided with absolute integrity, compassion and love. The care she offers is remarkable, enabling me to journey with great ease and joy. She is highly intuitive and I feel safely supported throughout the entire process. Often I am amazed at what transpires within the Soul Coaching® session and the insights that follow. I come away with practical solutions to implement positive change and I feel inspired." Kirrily Frost - Medium
"Soul Coaching with Bec has been a truly life changing experience. Bec’s wisdom, honesty, integrity and realness enables a truly transformative space to develop and grow. She approaches Soul Coaching with such honour and belief that you cannot help but want to throw yourself into it.
Bec’s ability to tune in with you during the process comes with such insight, intuition and flexibility. The whole experience felt nurturing and honouring as I worked towards my Soul’s Truth. I felt safe and supported at all times. The new insights, tools and understandings that developed during Soul Coaching has had such a positive impact on my life. It has been an incredible journey to have had with Bec and it continues to influence further connection with my Soul Self." Cassie - Psychologist
“It is an honour to write a testimonial for Bec’s drum and shield making workshops, although for me, (having attended and supported Bec in her workshops over many years), each one has been very much more than a workshop but rather an experience of great spiritual and emotional growth in a loving, safe and supported environment. The precious drum or shield that is birthed during this process is like a newly birthed Self with all the beauty and potential of new life. Bec has an exceptional ability to sit with each participant through their own process with love, encouragement and humour. This is truly a sacred experience!” Clare Roberts - Therapist and Counsellor
“I first met Soul Coach Bec Nelson through her powerful Medicine Drums, then more recently had the great good fortune of working with her as an editor of the award-winning book “Soul Whispers: Collective Wisdom from Soul Coaches around the World,” published through Soul Wings Press. Bec’s chapter in this book, titled “Our Essential Nature ~ Medicine for the Soul,” contains a wealth of deep insights into the authentic shamanic traditions that Bec holds sacred.
Her connection to spirit and graceful wisdom shines through not only in her writing but in the many Workshops for the Soul she conducts through Sweetwater Soul Coaching. If you are looking for an experienced spiritual teacher with the highest personal integrity, who can honour and guide your soul’s growth through the healing and transformative powers of Nature and Spirit, I highly recommend Bec Nelson!” Sophia Fairchild ~ Editor & Publisher, Soul Wings® Press

"I wasn't sure what to expect nor searching for any specific result when Bec agreed to take me on a Soul Journey. This was now over a year ago and I can still vividly see the pictures and landscapes which rose up within me, as she gently guided with very simple, yet intuitively direct questions. There were strong emotions and playful episodes, clear sympathies and antipathies that accompanied my journey. Without my effort, scenes of lovely and touching imagery seemed to rise from my depths of my being. They felt deeply significant and informative, yet without clear meaning. In the end, I felt that I had gone through a real experience that left me feeling open and vibrant. It was a great experience."
Leanne Ernandes - Steiner Adult Educator
"Bec Nelson's drum making workshop is of the highest standard. She combines in her teaching her extraordinary knowledge of native american culture, craft, lifestyle and spirituality along with her outstanding humour and compassion. I fully recommend this workshop for the seeker of personal transformation and one of the most beautiful drum styles I have experienced."
Chris Hooper - Chris Hooper Promotions
"Bec is a most, generous, patient, knowledgeable and jolly teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed my drum making workshop experience with her. She kept the whole weekend focused, balanced and fun. At every stage she encouraged “free range” expression of our ideas, yet she is very mindful of creating and maintaining a loving, non-judgmental and sacred space from start to finish.
I’ve been “in the Arts” for years, a seasoned “crafter” I thought , but folks - this was different. During Bec’s workshop I learned about crafting with pure intention, an open heart, and positive vision. I was inspired by the wonderful array of materials Bec made available for our use, and then humbled by her generosity with such a rare and valuable supply. I was profoundly moved on many levels by the process of crafting in the reverence of traditional native ways that she so tenderly taught us.
Now I have a beautiful, unique drum and drum beater full of symbolic meaning for me. I am itching to use her (my drum) with others, drumming and singing a New Earth into being. I can’t recommend Bec’s Drum making weekends highly enough." Jaqi Mudge - Artist & Shamanic Practitioner
"As Antonio Stradavaris proved the making of a fine instrument takes far more than a good craft person. It is having an intimate bond with every part that forms the whole and the awareness to allow the Spirit of the instrument to become all it can be.
Bec is not only a gifted artisan. She has a rare and enviable oneness with her drums which she creates uniquely for each individual. Drums can be bought from many venues, but Rare is the instrument born with the spirit of life that is one with your own the moment you hold it. Her drums are not only outwardly beautiful they have an essence which reaches deep within and inspires the spirit to soar. It is not only a drum you hold but much more.
Bec creates in her instrument, life and the one who shares this life becomes the music. Bec's gift makes the drum sing true." Raven Kinski - Wildlife Rescuer
