Collaborating with Amber and Rachael on this special workshop, Melissa Anne Goldenberg will amplify the nurturing vibration of love! Melissa first discovered her passion for crystal sound healing 5 years ago. In April 2016, called to learn vibrational medicine to support her own self-healing and that of others, Melissa went to Bali to study with a Master of Sound Healing. After 2 days searching for her special vibrational note, she experienced the resonance of “G”, associated with the throat chakra. It was then she began to question whether her thyroid (related to throat) could be contributing to her ever-increasing health issues. Shortly after that, Melissa was diagnosed with autoimmune disease and thyroid cancer. Since then, she has been on a courageous healing journey in Costa Rica, using sound medicine daily to help heal her dis-ease.
