In the pivotal healing crisis and spiritual awakening that followed, she shifted her focus to supporting women in the challenging moments of birth, loss, sexual shame and trauma. Today, she facilitates transformational experiences through women’s circles, workshops, intimate retreats and one-on-one mentorship. Mellisa, her partner and two children live in Austin, TX where they are focused on building intentional community. You can find her at

Why cacao? As an excellent alternative to coffee, cacao is rich in theobromine, a native relative to caffeine. Theobromine’s heart-opening effects energize the body and elevate the mood.  Third Eye Cacao is organically grown, hand picked and sun-dried. Just boil water— Third Eye Cacao is easy enough for your morning ritual, and pure enough to be used for cacao ceremonies! (Check out Ep. 40 with Third Eye Founder, Neil Ryan Dumra).
