Melissa Franklin has a Bachelor of Science degree in sociology and psychology from Oakland University. She is a McLean Meditation Institute certified meditation and mindfulness instructor (CMMI) and received mindfulness-based stress reduction training. Melissa is also a Reiki master and intuitive card reader. After being in the corporate world for over 30 years and feeling the stress associated with that she knew there was more to life. Melissa was introduced to meditation when her daughter was having heart surgery and the surgeon told Melissa that if she didn’t begin meditation she would end up being his next patient and probably wouldn’t survive. Once she experience the benefits firsthand she knew she had to bring the peace of meditation to others. Her desire to help people learn how to calm their minds and reduce stress has been her driving force in wanting to help her students. Melissa believes that meditation is one of the most beneficial practices you can bring into your life and she would love to help you develop your practice so that you can see amazing results and experience peace in your own life too.
