What people are saying
“Melli gave an inspiring and uplifting presentation on ‘Changing your world from the inside out’ in the Happiness and Mindfulness stream at the Happiness and Its Causes conference 2017. The session was packed with many delegates not able to get into the room – evidence of the popularity of the topic. With insights into how to apply the essence of the world’s wisdom traditions in practical ways for a more peaceful and meaningful life, Melli’s presentation was a highlight of the conference for many of those in attendance.”

“I am enthralled when I listen to Mellissa teach because there is a delightful mixture of gentleness and incredible power that comes through her message. She has intelligent ideas, a strength of experience, and a driving passion to help the world in an area that is most neglected – the mind. If we tuned in to her message, we would make profound changes in our lives. She is a voice that must be heard.”
