Guided Meditation

Melissa began her consciousness journey in 2011. In 2013 she received the Hayagriva transmission from Ven. Lama Jigme Rinpoche, whom received the transmission directly from His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In 2015 she received the Shatipat transmission from Swami Nardanand, a blessing with lineage over 800 years. Both transmissions are very special. They are given to help the Sadha (seeker) obtain realization through meditation. Melissa is initiated as a Oneness Peace Deeksha Blessing Giver and Peace Keeper, and offers this blessing to anyone whom is seeking realization and peace. She is trained in many variations and styles of meditation.

THE POWER OF BREATH - $20

Did you know proper breathing can increase energy levels and decrease muscle pain and soreness? Breath also increases blood flow, lymph drainage, and aids in healthy digestion. It can help you lose weight, strengthen core muscles, adjust posture long-term, and reduce stress levels by engaging the para-sympathetic nervous system! Wow, that's a lot of benefits for something so simple!


You're probably asking, Do I need breath therapy?

First let's check your breath.


Take A Deep Breath In. Exhale. Now do it again, but this time pay attention to the movement in your ribcage. DID YOUR RIB CAGE MOVE UP TOWARDS YOUR SHOULDERS ON THE INHALE? If so, breath therapy is right for you. When the ribcage moves upwards with breath, the body is not utilizing the function of the Thoracic Diaphragm - the muscle in the body specifically designed for breathing! There are a number of reasons why the TD stops moving, like, postural changes from walking on flat surfaces, sucking in the gut, and sitting for long hours, or high stress levels.


When the body stops utilizing the TD for breath, it needs to use a back-up system. This back-up system is a kinetic chain of 14 different muscles in the ribs, back, shoulders, neck, and head. THAT'S 13 EXTRA MUSCLES EXPANDING AND CONTRACTING WITH EACH BREATH! Imagine how much energy supply that takes from the body, and how much extra strain it causes to the upper body...


The biggest muscles effected by chest breathing are the scalenes, SCM, and levator scapula. These muscles attach from the jaw to the top of the rib cage, cover the back and top of the head, and connect the top of the shoulder blade to the back of the skull. Hmm, Do you have difficulty turning your neck, get tension headaches, or have constant shoulder pain? Then breath therapy is absolutely right for you!

About this meditation -

WALKING MEDITATION @ Fabyan Forest Preserve | Geneva - $5

Walking for the body. Meditation for the mind. Nature for the Soul

Join Melissa for one hour of whole body benefits - boosting health, clearing the mind, and taking in the medicine of nature


Walking is essential to a healthy immune system. The lymphatic system, responsible for eliminating toxins and waste product from the body,  primarily  functions to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. Unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic system does not have a pump. Instead, its movement depends on muscle and joint movement. If we become sedentary, lymph fluid stagnates and the processes essential to waste elimination and immunity weaken. But, by intelligent design, the propulsion of the arms and legs while walking is the perfect movement to assist lymphatic fluid movement!
