”Love your work Melissa. Really inspiring.”
“My biggest breakthrough was with my relationship with money and really understanding that money is energy. I changed my outlook coming from a place of scarcity to one of abundance, learning to see that money is everywhere just like energy is everywhere. Through the exercises we did in our prosperity intensives around our relationship to Money I got past what was too scary about what I should earn… what I didn’t think I could earn. I worked through my money shadows that I didn’t know I had. I’ve shifted to where I don’t feel scared of money. I don’t feel scared about talking about money or asking for money. I’ve already began to put what I’ve learned into practice in my business. I realized that the more abundant I am the more I would be able to bless others. This was the first time I was able to see that my ability to create wealth was for the greater good.”

“Coming back around to this retreat has shown me how much work I’ve done through the Fire Tree Method this year and was good timing for continuing integration.”

“I feel this was an incredibly powerful week for painting at the lovely Martha’s Vineyard Flat Bottom Pond. The dynamic energy of this intimate group allowed me to fully step into my process and continue my journey into the unknown, with paint brush in hand. I am truly grateful for the experience, to Melissa, and to each and every participant who made this such and incredibly rich and transformative experience!”
- Valerie Guettler, Martha’s Vineyard Intuitive Painting Retreat
“My relationship with Melissa and the Fire Tree Method has taught me the incredible gift of trusting my own internal guidance, recognizing my resistance and acting upon my own clarity. Through our relationship I have learned the gift of authentic and honest communication, holding strong boundaries both professional and personal, and speaking my truth in love whilst releasing the outcome irrespective of the fear welling inside.”
- Rebecca Knaggs, Certified Facilitator in The Fire Tree Method
