Patricia was privileged to study personally with Louise Hay starting in the late 1980’s. They met when Louise was leading one week intensives. Patricia was then asked to join the Heal Your Life® staff for the intensives and later personally chosen by Louise to lead the powerful Love Yourself, Heal Your Life® workshop. Leading this workshop evolved into a worldwide training program for Heal Your Life® teachers, coaches, and trainers.

Patricia’s own search for meaning started during a very stressful time in her life. She began practicing a simple meditation technique just to reduce stress and instead discovered a spiritual path and connection. She later completed a Ph.D. in social psychology with a specialty in developing wellness programs for the worksite and taught Stress Management at numerous businesses and a local university. Her mission became to to empower people worldwide with the inner resources and outer skills they need to achieve their dreams.

In 2001, she and husband Rick Nichols launched Heart Inspired Presentations, LLC, to provide workshops, training, and products to teach skills for living for a heart inspired life. They travel throughout the US and other countries sharing an uplifting message of how to create abundance in every area of life.

During the past twenty years, Patricia has led hundreds of workshops on a variety of topics: Creating Prosperity and Abundance, Success Strategies for Women on the Go, Healing the Inner Child, Assertiveness for Women, Creating Powerful Affirmations, Reiki Healing, Heal Your Life training, and many more. Dr. Crane is the author of Ordering from the Cosmic Kitchen: The Essential Guide to Powerful, Nourishing Affirmations and several free e-courses. Her articles have appeared in numerous publications. She has also produced several audios on meditation, visualization, and stress reduction.

Rick Nichols is an author, speaker, and trainer in personal development and self-help. He has authored and co-authored inspirational books such as, Who You Think You Are? A Fairy Tale for All Ages, In the Flow of Life, and two compilation books entitled Pearls of Wisdom, and many audio and video programs. Rick’s live and recorded presentations are passionate, dynamic, sincere, humorous, and useful in a practical way. Audiences love his stories, wisdom, and energetic, engaging style. He provides “take home” value for people of all walks of life. Participants will long remember his guidance.

As co-founder and vice president of Heart Inspired Presentations, LLC, Rick provides a variety of workshops, seminars, and training in personal growth, self-help and spiritual development.

He is a speaker of many facets, at once a storyteller, poet, and philosopher, but above all, he is a teacher and student of life. His programs include stories, and poetry, along with principles and processes designed to shift a person’s perspective, which opens them to a deeper level of self-appreciation and self-awareness.
