“Let go of who you think you are supposed to be and embrace who you are.”-Dr. Brené Brown
From our first breath we are told a story about what we are supposed to do, say, and be. “She’s just shy.” “They don’t know how to do it.” “Why can’t you behave?!” The result? We become fractured and create a different mask for every situation because we believe that the True Self should never be seen or known. Divorced from our true power we move from fear and distrust. Afraid to rise from our crouched position and meet the world with love. Afraid to fully Emerge.
At Emerge, a safe space for women to awaken; we will identify, release, and replace the stories we have inherited. Through a combination of play, breathwork, Kundalini Yoga, delight, connection and creativity your truest and highest self, freed from the weight of fear, will emerge ready to stand strong and move forward with aligned purpose.

Her mission as an artist and coach is to consistently create from a place of joy and healing in order to provide a sense of understanding and belonging in those who feel wounded, left out, underserved and unseen.

CONNECTOR & FOUNDER OF INNER KALEIDOSCOPE
In 2018 Megaan, struggling with chronic anxiety and lack of purpose, found herself amidst a dark night of the soul which showed itself to be a portal to deep spiritual awakening. With the help of Leah’s Sacred Leadership program, Megaan rebuilt herself from the ground up. And with the increase in consciousness came the profound desire to share what she has learned with others. Thus she took on the task to create a space for women to connect and encourage them to take care of the most important and longest relationship they will ever have, the one with themselves.
In her daily life Megaan is a Realtor and Interior Designer. Her rewarding but demanding career of guiding clients through the life transition of finding a home requires her to be centered and aligned in compassion. She has found that mindfulness and connection to the self is key to holding space for others as well as herself.
Megaan wanted to bring her transformative experience with self care, breathwork, yoga and meditation to share with others - with that Inner Kaleidoscope Productions was created. Her mission is to connect compassionate beings and inspire a collective consciousness of love, light and gratitude.
YOGA INSTRUCTOR & SELF-WORTH COACH
Melissa is a yoga instructor, writer, speaker, and certified life coach. After her own battle with mental illness and unworthiness led her on a path of deep healing and transformation, she knew she had to help others struggling with the same issues. She spent 15 years studying psychology, trauma, energy therapies, and even traveled to India to learn yoga and meditation. She has since created a unique integrative framework used to empower young women on their own journeys of self-discovery, including the membership space Self Worth for Teens.
"My passion is helping others find their passion: to help people feel good and do great things, to increase the positive vibration of this planet, and to consistently spread love and light wherever I go." ~ Melissa
