“My time spent in Palmas was zenful. I arrived there unsettled, in my mind and body. Melissa’s welcoming presence and home was like drinking a perfect cup of cinnamon tea. Heart-opening. Several days in, I felt connected, afloat, alive. My senses completely awakened. I am aware of how my nervous system had been on fight or flight mode for some time. At Palmas, I was able to relax, replane, and regulate. Thank you, I will be back.”
