Connecting Across Difference

In a special workshop that Melissa led at Historic Newton, people with different personal histories found a way to connect with honesty and depth. It was a transformative experience for all who participated.

Creating a Culture of Well-being

Melissa taught participants of varying ages, social and cultural backgrounds. She has a glow and light that shines through her and radiates to those around her.  Melissa helped the group to feel acceptance, openness, and a greater sense of self, as well as gain abilities (both through mind and body) they once thought they were incapable of.

Creating Reflective Space for Dialogue

People had a lot to take away from the session...your facilitation created a very impactful experience. It left me in a reflective state about what was shared during conversation with one another, but I also felt a new connection with others, many of whom I did not know, because of the experience we shared. I felt that this was a powerful aspect of the experience.

Thought Partnership

As I continue on my personal & professional journey of understanding systemic oppression and privilege, Melissa has been a tremendous thought partner and resource to me. Her framework around healing and human connection has provided profound insights to both the dynamic complexity and delicate nuances of diversity, equity and inclusion work. Melissa's intuition and work is truly powerful and one of a kind.

You were such an incredible addition to Unconscious Bias Week at Northern Essex Community College. I have been speaking with the attendees and they've all mentioned they're walking around the halls with a different perspective than before the workshop.

Thank you to Melissa Alexis from Cultural Fabric for facilitating three virtual Mindfulness and Guided Meditation sessions for our staff! As human services workers, our staff experience a variety of personal and professional challenges on a daily basis. The sessions led and facilitated by Cultural Fabric were deeply appreciated by attendees as both an opportunity to be part of a community of support, and an educational program to learn practical self-care techniques that could also be shared with clients.
