What People Are Saying
“It is one thing to talk eloquently on the subject of mindfulness and it is another thing to actually practice mindfulness. Mellissa is one of those select few who walks her talk.”
- Swami Kriyatma Saraswati – Mangrove Mountain, Australia
I am enthralled when I listen to Mellissa teach because there is a delightful mixture of gentleness and incredible power that comes through her message. She has intelligent ideas, a strength of experience, and a driving passion to help the world in an area that is most neglected – the mind. If we tuned in to her message, we would make profound changes in our lives. She is a voice that must be heard.

My weekend with Mellissa learning the keys to mindfulness was such a treat! Melli has a calm and confidence that allows her to share her passion and knowledge in a way that is inspiring and everlasting. She is organised yet relaxed, and the techniques I bought home with me have given me confidence to manage everyday challenges as a new mother and bring a new found balance to work and enjoying the magical moments that is my life.
