12 Keys to Freedom

Program Overview

12 Keys to Freedom: A Path to Metaphysical Recovery takes an expanded view of the concept of "recovery," unifying universal spiritual teachings and the 12-step process in a powerful hour of discussion, process and transformation. In life we have challenges that are beyond the realm of simple dependence: divorce, child abuse, unhealthy relationships, eating disorders, teenage bullying, the loss of a loved one, as well as addictions of all kinds.

12 Keys to Freedom offers a path to wholeness by using a technology developed by Ester Nicholson, an Agape Spiritual Practitioner, educator, world-renown vocalist and former addict. Her life story exemplifies the realization of wholeness from conditions of the most challenging kind.

12 Keys to Freedom takes us on a path from powerlessness to empowerment, moving to a realization of our inherent, God-given wholeness—no matter who we are, what we have done, or how challenging our life experience has been.

Host Bio

Ester Nicholson
Ester Nicholson is a licensed spiritual practitioner, recovery coach and inspirational recording artist who brings her personal experience of 25 years of sobriety coupled with a committed practice of spiritual principle to audiences around the globe—with riveting keynotes, soul-nurturing music, transformative workshops and heart-connecting retreats.

For the past 17 years, she has studied under Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape International and featured teacher of The Secret. Ester has also been a licensed member of the Agape International Spiritual Practitioner Core for 11 years. A gifted vocal artist, she has completed two world tours with Rod Stewart, Bette Midler and many others—in addition to appearing on such television shows as Oprah, The Tonight Show, The View, Good Morning America and the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Ester is currently facilitating workshops on forgiveness, incorporating principles from Colin Tipping's Radical Forgiveness and 12 Keys to Freedom, and Keys to Abundant Living, sourced from prosperity teachers such as Eric Butterworth, John Randolph Price and Abraham. As a teacher, she illustrates through her own personal struggle—and ultimate transcendence—over erroneous beliefs in lack and limitation. Nicholson shares, “It has become very clear to me that a false sense of identity and the ignorance of our true nature is the only true blockage to our good. The more those false beliefs are dissolved through an unwavering commitment to ‘know the truth that sets us free,’ the more we break through the hypnotic suggestion of lack and finally experience the glory and magnificence of the universe.”

Ester's personal struggles as a teenage mother, substance abuser, food addict, survivor of domestic violence and her ultimate triumph over these adversities place her in a unique and powerful position to relate to and inspire teens, youth and adult groups from all walks of life.

Whether she's speaking and sharing her music with churches, the United Way, the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority, health care centers or helping teens at a Catholic School in Yuma, Arizona, Ester provides high-value tools and technologies touching hearts and minds with her deep commitment to making a significant contribution to the world.
