About Melissa’s background and Focus…..
Traveling the world with her scientist father and inquisitive Mother, Melissa developed a taste for adventure that has fostered a life in pursuit of exploration, discovery, communication and most importantly healing. Many of the areas her family ventured took them into remote villages, whether it was in the Amazon rain forrest, the outback of Australia or in S.Africa. Melissa was being coiffured as a healer from an early age by the ‘ancients’ who recognized this to be her true calling way before she grew into this ‘knowing’.
A natural inclination to photograph the beautiful environments and wildlife she encountered led her to the creative force and educational impact of producing and directing award winning documentary films to further science and conservation. An undertone of healing was always the core message, whether it was through understanding climate change, how to save our coral reefs or being aware of how to be more supportive of indigenous cultures.
Filming in remote locations such as the Venezuelan Amazon, Karoo desert and Hawaiian Islands, Melissa has brought collaborative efforts of discovery to the world via broadcast on The History Channel, Discovery Channel and The National Film Board of Canada.
Melissa brought all this experience together when when the scientists she collaborated with asked her over a fire in the S. African desert to please find another, more effective way to help people focus on the messages they were trying to impart to us.
Now her background and research on more effective communication is focused on how to help us all begin our journey into a new time, one of higher consciousness, working together to ease whatever challenges we face whether they are societal, environmental or cultural.
Please join Melissa, along with her colleagues in this collaborative effort through their workshops, talks and projects. It will bring you ease and a way of being that both releases you from fear but also creates a platform for living that is abundant with joy, all while giving back to this planet and each other……This is the journey, come travel….
