Update re COVID-19

Hello beautiful community,
The health & safety of everyone in our community and beyond is of the highest importance.  Our schedule is in a holding pattern right now.  I had hoped to continue in-person sessions and retreats, however with new and changing restrictions we are holding off until the new year in 2021. Online sessions continue to be offered. I will keep you posted as and when our schedule is updated, potential reschedule dates are outlined below.

*Join our online community*
I know this is a very challenging time for us all and I am offering free online Inspired Meditation Circles (discussion & meditation) to our community.  Learn more and register on our Inspired Meditation Circles page.  I am also available to setup a Zoom call with you if you have questions or concerns, or would like some guidance with your meditation practice.

Courage My Heart Meditation Retreats - Hear Centered Healing

My beloved ~ I want you to know that YOU are magic, and that wherever you are in the world right now, whatever situation you are dealing with, whatever you have gone through, it can be overcome. Light can always be found ~ have faith, please trust and believe this truth deep within your heart. Let light shine out of darkness (Corinthians).

be open.
Meditation shows us that each day we can extend our hand and heart in compassion, kindness, love, light, and peace, and see quiet miracles.

I’m sharing with you a poem by E.E. Cummings, words which ‘carry me’ every day, words which have carried me through my deepest and darkest storms, truly through the “dark night of the soul”.  May you find solace in these words.

I wish you peace ~ OM Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi. Melissa x


‘i carry your heart’
E.E. Cummings


i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear;
and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling) 


i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you


here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart


i carry your heart
(i carry it in my heart)
