“I recently completed Melanie’s Intro to Mindfulness course. Melanie is a brilliant and knowledgeable teacher. I felt welcomed into a safe and supportive space, and held as we explored what can be quite personal and vulnerable topics. She is deeply experienced in mindfulness but manages to make it accessible. Rather than dictating one path, she guides you with sensitivity to find your own ‘Aha!’ moments. Her class was well organized and delivered with humor and heart. She makes a particular effort to be inclusive and open- minded to all. Thank you Melanie!” – Cecilia
