Music has always had the power to touch us deeply - yet, in these days, music creates a resonance beyond all confines we are longing for. When our gathering around the theme of purpose began with Michael’s magnificent piano play, he opened a space that allowed us to open our hearts and connect on a deeper level right away. Just humans in resonance.

It is joy and privilege to be greeted by Michael's soulful and dynamic original music when logging on to the Lumen Partners webinars. He's playing generates a feeling of positivity and anticipation. At the end of each webinar Michael plays to send people off, yet no one leaves because they are captivated by his music and performance. Watching him move and flow as he plays the keyboard brings a smile to my face. He puts his heart in both his music and performance. It's an experience!
Each of Michael’s piano performances is like a memorable journey, with invitations to reflect, ponder, grow, rest and open. Michael carefully meets and guides us along the way, not only with stunning piano improvisations, but also with gesture, movement and stillness. And then, at the end, we leave feeling profoundly heard, met, touched and inspired. Thank you, Michael, for your effortless artistry and presence!
Ich begegnete Michael online. Er schaffte es, mir innerhalb kürzester Zeit Gänsehaut zu machen. Mich zu entführen - in einer der verrücktesten Zeiten hat er mich alles vergessen lassen.

Höre ich Michael Nickels Musik, öffnet sie mir eine Tür heraus aus dem Gewöhnlichen — herein in das Besondere, Begeisternde, Andere — und sie macht mir Mut, hindurchzugehen.
Michael’s music seamlessly guides my mind and whole being to a place of inner tranquility and spaciousness, a place I seldom reach, even in the depths of my own meditation practice. His soothing melodies and harmonies create a sense of refuge, allowing for a deep letting go, softening and sinking into each moment with deeper and deeper presence and aliveness.
Michaels Musik wär wie ein Schlüssel zu meiner Gedankenwelt. Nie war mein Journelheft so voll und meine Gedanken während einer online Session so im Fluss. Eine wahres Geschenk!
