"I am in such profound gratitude to have worked with Melissa as a participant in her Retreat Leadership Training program. Melissa is so profoundly heart-centered and servant-minded that, combined with her experience and expertise, I was in awe of her capacity to gently guide me while teaching me how to create a successful and impactful retreat experience. I always felt well supported and confident with what Melissa shared and how she encouraged me to think outside the box and from the perspective of the retreat participant to make sure that my intention and desired impact were aligned. Melissa is talented, skillful and truly magical in her ability to help you create the retreat of your dreams. Anyone would be lucky to have her at their side as their 'retreat whisper!' "
