Grief is like the ocean; it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing.
Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming.
All we can do is learn to swim.
In her Mindfulness & Grief: Courage My Heart retreat, based on her 8-week program, Melissa shares her 3 personal experiences of loss, as she connects the dots to find a lesson, a meaning, and a legacy in each beautiful life. This retreat is limited to 10-12 spaces to allow for a sacred circle of sharing, deep inner listening, and release with healing. You will be gently guided through the stages of grief – practicing breathing techniques, gentle movements, and guided meditations. Melissa will share with you how to connect the dots in your own beautiful life, and how to honour your loved ones – using journaling exercises, healing meditations, and art therapy.

The miracle is not to walk on water, but to walk on earth.
